What is Hypnotherapy?

To understand the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy, think of hypnosis as a tool and hypnotherapy as the use of a tool. In SAT terms, hypnotherapy is to hypnotism as art therapy is to art. The definition of hypnotherapy is clear from the word itself. Hypnotherapy is the practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes and has been accepted by the American Council of Medicine since 1958.

The hypnotic trance state is a remarkably flexible tool for solving mental and physical health problems. Here are just a few ways mental health and medical professionals use hypnotherapy:

– Helping people quit smoking or reduce overeating by focusing their minds and suggesting healthier behavior.
– Accessing the mind-body link to relieve chronic and acute pain including during surgery and childbirth. Hypnotherapy has also proven effective against stubborn physical afflictions like irritable bowel syndrome and dermatological conditions
– Diving deep into the subconscious mind to uncover and treat the root causes of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction.

You would be surprised how often hypnotherapy is used in modern medicine and psychotherapy.

How does Hypnotherapy work?

The most powerful feature of the trance state is how it connects our conscious minds to our subconscious minds. The conscious mind is like the home screen of our computer where you choose what you want to see.

The subconscious mind to a computer’s file system. Our subconscious is like our hard drive, where we store every experience, emotion, and thought we’ve had.

In the relaxed, hyper-focused state of hypnosis — under the guidance of a hypnotherapist — we can run a Google search on our subconscious, pulling up the repressed memories and buried emotions at the root of our mental health challenges.

Your Hypnotherapist can then help guide you to relief of these buried issues and resolve the erroneous beliefs associated with them.

At Ideal Wellness NW our Certified, Registered Master Hypnotherapist uses a proven, therapeutic approach called 5 PATH (Five-Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis®️.) This system is proven and repeatable.
