Hypnosis is not a state of sleep, but is a natural state of mind that produce can produce extraordinary levels of relaxation of mind, body and emotions. The principles and theories upon which hypnotherapy is based, are accessing and utilizing the power of one’s inner resources. Hypnosis can transcend the critical, analytical level of mind, and facilitate the acceptance of suggestions, directions and instructions desired by the Client.
