Hypnotherapy-Mind/body Healing:

Hypnotherapy:

Clinical hypnosis is a powerful method of bringing about desired changes in feelings or behavior. It has proved extremely valuable for individuals wishing to lose weight, stop smoking, improve performance, or eliminate anxiety. Some individual may need Rapid Resolution Therapy to be rid of anxiety based on a variety of factors. Because the hypnotic process affects the subconscious mind, changes are automatic, natural, and lasting. Dr. (Elwell) Payne offers a 15-minute free consultation for anyone considering hypnotherapy to answer any questions and relieve any concerns regarding the process.

Usual duration of appointments ranges from just 1 to 5 sessions as the methods used are powerful and tend to give rapid results.



Mind/Body Healing:

The method of Mind/Body Healing used includes a form of hypnosis that is thought to reach the subconscious mind to automatically cause the body to respond, engaging the parasympathetic nervous system, helping increase healing while helping “tone down” the response of the “pain messenger”. If there is no need to inform the person that there is an issue (meaning the person has been told medically that they are doing, or have done, what there is to do given their situation). Therefore, the person responds feeling more comfortable and seems to have more energy available for healing and enjoying life.

Usual duration of appointments ranges from just 1 to 5 sessions as the methods used are powerful and tend to give rapid results.

Hypnotherapy:

by Jon Connelly, Ph.D. L.C.S.W.



People who have become discouraged in their attempts to change a behavior blame lack of self control. Self control means using the conscious mind to control the subconscious. To understand why self control is so challenging you have to assess the relative strength of the conscious and subconscious. Consciously we are only able to do one thing at a time and then not for very long. How many thoughts are you able to think at exactly the same time? How long are you able to keep that one thought in your consciousness? Most people feel they can only have one thought at a time and then not for very long because their mind moves on to the next thought. The subconscious mind however can direct many activities simultaneously. Just think of the things that are necessary for the person to give the speech or how many different things your subconscious mind is controlling in order for you to drive your car through traffic.

Hypnotherapy is the most effective method of gaining access to and influencing the subconscious mind. A skilled hypnotherapist can help you bring about desired change not only in the things you do but even in those things you feel. Long standing habits can be changed and so can your emotional responses. Many people have overcome phobias, panic disorder, and problems with controlling their temper. Hypnotherapy can enable people to move more quickly past the pain from a breakup. It has helped people with insomnia, depression and sexual problems. Because the mind has such a strong influence on the body, hypnotherapy can aid in recovery by reducing physical pain and accelerating healing.
