Stress and Hypnotherapy
Updated: Sep 23, 2019
It is common knowledge that stress is harmful to our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Considering our bodies respond to any threat physical or emotional; real or imagined with a rise in blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rate, muscle tension, blood sugar and inflammatory chemicals, it is no surprise that an estimated 60-90% of doctor visits involve stress related complaints. The good news is that we can train our bodies and our minds to manage stress and hypnotherapy can help!
Hypnotherapy is an extremely relaxing and profoundly deep state of calm. In the hypnotic state the constant mental stream of the conscious mind finally turns off. As it takes a snooze the subconscious mind is able to be contacted. In this state a trained hypnotherapist can remove any blocks ( past issues known or unknown, fears, negative beliefs, etc.) that are underlying or contributing to feelings of stress. Through hypnotherapy as one continues to return to the calm waters of the subconscious mind the deep feelings of peace and wellbeing transfer over into the waking conscious state. In the therapy you can also work directly to manage your stress response so that your internal and physical issues will be alleviated. You will be able to maintain a greater sense of peace and wellbeing regardless of what is going on around you.
