3 Reasons to Try Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is defined as a relaxed state of awareness, an inner absorption and concentration. Hypnosis is not a sleep state but is a form of psychotherapy, used to create new responses, attitudes, behaviours or feelings. The state of hypnosis is frequently called a trance.
During hypnosis therapy the mind is open to visualising and creating a rich sensory experience. The more real this experience becomes, the more effect it has on our waking behaviour.  It is a method of inducing a trance of deep relaxation in order to treat disorders of a mainly psychological or emotional origin. It has been practised in various forms for thousands of years by many cultures.

Hynosis nowadays is recognised by the scientific community as an effective healing tool, although how it works is still something of a mystery. It is not a treatment in its own right, but is used as a part of medical, psychological and dental treatments.
There are endless alternative therapies, so why should you choose hypnotherapy? Here are some reasons.
