The word hypnosis is derived from the Greek word “hypnos” meaning “sleep”. Hypnosis has played an important role in healing, for thousands of years, in ancient cultures. Therapeutically, it has been used for treating not only physical, but also psychological disorders. 

  Hypnosis is a state of consciousness where mind and body are in deep and peaceful relaxation, allowing at the same time, our subconscious mind to be alert and receptive to acceptable suggestions. The acceptance of these suggestions, that must be in accordance with our belief system, will cause behavioral changes and resolve emotional barriers in a relative short time, which otherwise would take a long time, if at all. 

Hypnosis is divided in two areas:

  • Hypnoanalysis

  • Hypnotherapy

Everybody can be hypnotized if they want to and are not afraid. It is not dangerous, since it is only a state of relaxation from which anyone, without exception, can emerge.

Hypnosis is been used for many conditions and diseases, for example: 

  • Attention Deficit Disorder,

  • Phobias

  •  Depression

  • Anxiety Disorders

  •  Substance Abuse

  • Weight Loss

  • Stress

  • Stuttering

  • Fibromyalgia.

  •  and many others
