Hypnosis is a powerful therapeutic technique that can help modify behavior and transform your subconscious into your strongest ally. During the hypnosis experience, you bypass the critical factor of your conscious mind. Your subconscious mind becomes more open to suggestion, and you can modify your behavior and mold your actions. Many people turn to hypnosis to make big changes in their lives whether to kick bad habits or to empower them to make healthier choices.
Even celebrities are using hypnosis to tap into their inner reserves and get more out of their lives. Famous hypnotherapy clients, including reportedly Kate Middleton, have used hypnosis for everything from weight loss and smoking cessation to improving their games and giving birth. Here are the top 10 celebrities that use hypnotherapy to transform their lives.
Actress, producer and businesswoman extraordinaire Reese Witherspoon is among the highest-paid actresses in the world, but she is also one of the most famous individuals that have used hypnosis therapy. This hard-working actor fought for years to get meaningful roles and struggled with a certain amount of typecasting, which led to anxiety and frustration. She turned to hypnosis, which helped her manage her panic attacks so that she could forge her path in Hollywood.
Actor, businesswoman and another popular celebrity hypnosis user, Jessica Alba began working at 13, but one of her biggest roles came in 2008 when her first child was born. She was intimidated at the idea of going into labor, but hypnosis helped prepare her for both labor and motherhood. Hypnosis was such a positive experience for her the first time around that it was a natural choice for her second pregnancy.
Model Gisele Bundchen also reportedly tried hypnosis during her labor. With birth hypnosis, women can let go of their fear, which allows labor to progress more smoothly and can ease the pain of contractions. While it might not eliminate all pain, hypnosis can promote a more positive and empowering birthing experience and is a natural choice for many celebrities that use hypnotherapy.
