Since the 18th century, medical professionals have used hypnosis to treat a variety of patients. It has only been since the middle of the last century that science has started looking deeper into the practice, however. Hypnosis can offer an alternative to drugs and more invasive therapies and gives patients more control over both their treatments and their outcomes. If you are interested in hypnosis, you have two options: in-person hypnotherapy or a self-hypnosis download.

Which one is best for you?

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is used to induce a focused state of awareness to make changes in your life. During this state of mind, your conscious and subconscious mind can communicate more effectively. Your subconscious is more open to suggestion, and you can work with it to move past any stumbling blocks in your path. When you experience hypnosis, you can alter not just the way you behave but the way you feel, too.

The process is so effective that it has been used to treat everything from anxiety, depression, and phobias to surgical preparation and recovery and weight loss.

Hypnotherapy Benefits

The hypnotherapy benefits are extensive. This gentle, non-invasive therapy method has been recognized by major medical associations for nearly a century and used in medicine much longer. This relaxing, natural treatment can help you address both symptoms and underlying issues. You can enjoy calming, holistic healing from within.

Our hypnotherapist in Hong Kong is highly trained in using hypnosis to treat a variety of issues, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Bad habits
  • Sleep disorders
  • Relationship problems
  • Acute or chronic pain
  • Digestive problems

As with other forms of therapy, hypnotherapy offers you an opportunity to discuss the issues you would like to tackle. Our hypnotherapist will then guide you into a relaxed state where you can work on the issues that are holding you back. The process is mutual: You cannot be forced to do anything against your will.

During hypnotherapy, several techniques can be used, including reframing experiences by seeing them in a new, positive light to change how you think about them going forward, incorporating new habits, and finding practices that help you cope when life gets difficult. You will never be unconscious or out-of-control, contrary to movie or book representations of hypnosis. You will hear every suggestion and be an active participant in the process.

Self-Hypnosis

Much like the hypnotherapy process, you will also be in control when using a self-hypnosis download. Because of this, all hypnosis is essentially self-hypnosis. You might have already experienced hypnosis on your own at some point. Have you ever found yourself lost in thought while engaged in a repetitive chore? Did you ever go on “autopilot” while on a long drive and find yourself at your destination with no memory of driving?

When you use a self-hypnosis download, you are choosing to engage with this process. With self-hypnosis audios, you can still enjoy the benefits of a skilled hypnotherapist guiding you through the steps. However, you can learn to enter the focused state on your own. You can learn to do everything you would do with a hypnotherapist on your own time and your own terms. You enjoy all the hypnotherapy benefits as you would with a hypnotherapist.
