Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis – Columbus, Ohio.
When you hear the word ‘hypnosis’ what do you think of? Someone swinging a pocket watch back and forth in front of you while explaining, “you are getting very sleepy?” Hypnotherapy is a common method used to treat many mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, fears and phobias, sleep disorders and more. Holistic Wellness Solutions provides hypnotherapy to Columbus, Ohio, patients to help alleviate their issues and break bad habits.
What is Hypnosis?
Did you know that hypnosis is a natural state of mind that you can achieve on your own? Think about the last time you were driving somewhere and you got so lost in your thoughts that you missed your exit, or got to your destination without remembering parts of the drive. You were so focused on your thoughts you blocked out the actions occurring around you. This is an example of self-hypnosis, which we may go in and out of several times throughout the day.
What are the benefits of Hypnotherapy?
Used in tandem with other treatments, hypnosis can be an effective way to treat mental health problems by helping you perceive things differently and break bad patterns and habits. When in a relaxed and focused hypnotic state, people can explore thoughts, feelings and memories they may be suppressing from their conscious minds. This allows a professional counselor to work with patients to resolve underlying issues.
How does Hypnotherapy work?
Hypnosis relaxes the conscious part of the brain so positive suggestions can be more easily introduced, encouraging subconscious changes to negative thoughts, feelings and behavior. Using guided relaxation, intense concentration and focused attention, the goal is to block out all the “noise” going on around you so you can tap in to your unconscious mind.
What is the difference between the conscious and unconscious mind?
After choosing medicines that are genetically proven to work best for you, we monitor your adherence to self-management and gather information to help improve future prescribing decisions.
What is Hypnotherapy used for?
Hypnosis can be used to help stop addiction and break bad habits, like smoking or nail biting, relieve stress, alleviate symptoms of past trauma, improve self-esteem and confidence, treat depression or anxiety, reduce chronic pain, and much more.
Is Hypnotherapy better than taking medication?
Today, medication is usually the first line of treatment doctors recommend for alleviating symptoms of mental health problems such as anxiety, stress and depression. While meds may help, the effect is like a band-aid on a wound. Hypnotherapy, on the other hand, addresses the underlying emotions that feed anxiety, stress and depression. Through hypnosis, we can get to the source of the issue and better understand what triggers adverse reactions.
How often will I need to go under hypnosis?
Like exercise, where you can’t expect to only workout once to get good results, most patients require more consistent hypnotherapy treatments for optimum improvements. Most of our hypnosis clients come in for a session once a week for a few months. Everyone is different and we will monitor your success closely. We also create a recording during your hypnotherapy treatment so you can listen to it at home.
