Everyone has a few bad habits; some chain smoke more than Thomas the Tank Engine, others grind their teeth when they sleep and there are those who would rather undergo a root canal with a Unicorn dentist who has no opposable thumbs, than conduct public speaking. Try to overcome these issues with today’s Groupon: a Hypnotherapy session with a qualified clinical Hypnotherapist at Peaceful Mind Hypnotherapy Centre for R75.
Debbie Hall, owner of Peaceful Mind Hypnotherapy Centre and a qualified Hypnotherapist, has been practicing Hypnotherapy for the past six years. The term "hypnosis" comes from the Greek word “hypnos”, meaning "sleep." Hypnotherapists use exercises that bring about deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness. Debbie claims that unwanted habits such as smoking, health issues like obesity, low self-esteem, a lack of confidence, anxiety, depression, phobias, drinking, learning difficulties and fear of public speaking, can all be treated with this revolutionary therapy technique.
During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. The mind then goes into what is known as the Alpha state, which allows access of the subconscious mind. You will feel at ease physically, yet fully awake mentally and may be highly responsive to suggestion and appropriate suggestions are then made. However, you do not lose consciousness while in hypnosis; your awareness actually becomes sharper and more deeply focused, with a deep sense of relaxation.
Debbie feels hypnosis is a consensual state, so you must also be open and willing to allow yourself to experience hypnosis. After a hypnosis session at Peaceful Mind Hypnotherapy Centre, you will feel like a brand new person. Your decision-making ability will still be there and operating, although your subconscious mind will do its best to safeguard you from repeating previous habits. You will finally be able to recite that haiku you penned to the entire office or get rid of the 30 a day smoking habit after Debbi has worked her Hypnotherapy on you.
Hypnosis fact: A Hypnotherapist in Vancouver used pineapple on a stick to get her patients into the relaxed Alpha state. She would swing the pineapple from side to side while uttering “you are getting very sleepy” and the patient would go into a hypnotic state almost immediately.
