10 Reasons to Use Hypnosis

by Shana Rosenthal 


  1. You will feel thoroughly relaxed. Hypnosis is a completely natural state of relaxation. It is a fact that we all go into a trance-like state at many times throughout a given day, so the sensation induced through hypnosis feels natural, leaving you in an energized and optimal state. 


  1. Approximately 70 million Americans suffer from sleep problems according to the Center for Disease Control. Lying awake at night unable to shut off racing thoughts is incredibly common. Hypnosis can help manage that stress and train your mind to drift gently back into a deep and nourishing sleep. Disruptive sleep affects your performance because your mind and body need a restful sleep pattern in order to function optimally. 


  1. One reason that diets only work for a limited amount of time, and many people actually gain more weight than before they started dieting is because they never dealt with the root cause of weight gain. Hypnosis can help you lose unwanted pounds forever. Weight loss does not have to be difficult, and it’s possible to achieve a healthier body composition through hypnosis. 


  1. More people fear public speaking or performing in front of a crowd than dying. Hypnosis can help you release this common fear, so you can confidently look forward to the next speaking engagement without a trace of nervousness. 


  1. According to the American Psychological Association, 75% of adults reported experiencing moderate to high levels of stress in the past month, and nearly half reported their stress has increased in the past year. People are faced with stress every day, regardless of what the triggers are, but hypnosis can help you change how your mind interprets tense situations. This enables you to relax and feel in control during times when you would normally feel stressed. 


  1. How many times have you tried to quit smoking? Too many, right? Smoking is just a habit like any other, and hypnosis can alleviate that urge to smoke and release the cravings, leaving you free to make that decision to quit forever.  


  1. Do you often feel angry? Anger can be an intensely damaging emotion to your overall health if not dealt with properly. What if you could process that anger in a positive channel and release it calmly? With the benefit of hypnosis, you can learn to experience anger in healthy doses without allowing it to overtake you. 


  1. Have you been caught in a deep-rooted fear? Perhaps it’s a fear of airplanes, spiders, heights or snakes. Whatever the cause, do you feel helpless when faced with it? Hypnosis can help you regain control of this crippling emotion, empowering you overcome the fear.  


  1. Procrastination is often said to be a major block to achieving success in life. If you can push beyond procrastination, then you can accomplish all kinds of goals. Powerful suggestion work is used in hypnosis to bring a lasting change to your thoughts and behavior which will shift you into a “take action” mindset.  


  1. A lack of self-confidence can make life both difficult and painful. You miss opportunities or avoid situations because you don’t believe in your own capabilities. Hypnosis can help remove these unhelpful beliefs and negative self-talk, so you can focus on developing new and exciting beliefs. You were born with confidence. Life experiences can knock it down, but hypnosis helps you re-learn how to feel confident and positive once again.
