From simple to complex issues, people are turning to hypnosis to improve their lives. It is now available at some of the most respected hospitals in the world, and is routinely taught in over a third of accredited schools of medicine and psychology.
Stop Smoking or Chewing Tobacco 3 Sessions
Hypnosis has long been appreciated as an effective way to overcome unwanted habits. Studies show that a multi-session approach, combined with training in self-hypnosis increases your chances of long-term success. Those who use hypnosis to stop smoking also report a higher rate of satisfaction with the process, compared to other methods.
Weight Loss, Mindful Eating 3-6 Sessions
One of the advantages of using hypnosis for weight loss is that it's a brief and pleasant process, with often long-lasting results. Hypnosis works by revealing the subconscious motivations for keeping you trapped in unhealthy behaviors, such as eating in response to emotional distress. Studies have shown that incorporating hypnosis into a lifestyle program can double your weight loss. Researchers also found that participants who use hypnosis are able to maintain their results longer.
Improve Sleep Quality 3 Sessions
Hypnosis is a safe, side-effect free way to improve troubled sleep. In a study measuring brain wave activity, researchers found that hypnosis not only boosts deep sleep quantity, it also improves deep sleep quality. Study participants slept 67% more and saw their "deep sleep" time rise by roughly 80% after hypnosis.
Enhance Fertility, IVF Success 6 Sessions
Hypnosis is a non-invasive technique that is proven to enhance fertility. Research shows that stress can interfere with and undermine the body's reproduction function, and that relieving stress greatly enhances fertility. According to studies, hypnosis can double IVF success rates and increase chances of natural conception by 50%.
Manage Chronic Pain 6 Sessions
Studies confirm that hypnosis is highly effective at reducing pain intensity in individuals with chronic pain. According to research, hypnosis "drastically reduces severe pain in hospital patients." After receiving a single 15-minute session, patients reported immediate reduction in pain similar to what one might expect from an opioid painkiller. Patients also reported a significant decrease in the perceived need for pain medication.
Relief From Hot Flashes 3 Sessions
Of all complementary approaches, hypnosis is uniquely effective in alleviating symptoms of menopause. A report commissioned by the North American Menopause Society showed hypnosis significantly decreases hot flashes in both frequency and severity, and reduces hot flashes by as much as 74%.
Soothe Digestive Problems 6 Sessions
People with gut problems (irritable bowel, inflammatory bowel, ulcerative colitis, crohn's) often find relief with hypnosis. On average, 75% experience "significant" relief and 80% continue to feel better for up to 6 years. Hypnosis has also proven to help people who fail to see improvements with other methods. According to research, those who experience improvements from hypnosis can look forward to years of reduced bowel symptoms.
Relax Before a Medical Procedure 3 Sessions
Feeling stressed or worried can negatively impact the outcome of a medical procedure. Hypnosis offers a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical way to tap into the mind's natural ability to reduce stress and pain. In clinical trials, those who received hypnosis reported far less pain and anxiety, suffered fewer complications, and recovered faster than those who received standard care.
Relieve Stress-Related Skin Problems 3-6 Sessions
Numerous studies have demonstrated hypnosis is especially helpful when dealing with stress-related skin problems (acne, psoriasis, eczema and hives). Hypnosis has also been shown to decrease pain and inflammation, and to limit behaviors such as scratching, skin picking and hair pulling.
