When performing hypnosis, we take certain things into account: how we sense, feel, think, perceive, and act while following a suggestion from an outside source. Successful hypnosis comes when  one can suspend their own conscious control over their behavior.

The root of hypnotic suggestion can be traced back for generations. It was discovered by an Austrian physician named Franz Mesmer. He believed that if people were to train their animal “magnetism,” they would overcome their ailments, all from the power of suggestion. However, it was Jean Marie Charcot, a French neurologist, who began to use hypnosis as a form of treatment.

Over the years, hypnosis has proven to treat a variety of mental & physical ailments, including:

  • Dental work
  • Burns
  • Headaches
  • Smoking
  • Giving birth
  • Mental illness (depression, anxiety, OCD, etc.)

Hypnosis can also have a profound effect on minimizing or eliminating pain, but only if you know the source of the pain because the pain can also be useful in identifying a more serious issue that needs to be addressed. There is significant clinical research that states hypnosis can help heal the body or decrease the perception of pain.

If you are dealing with pain, addiction, mental illness, PTSD, or other physical ailments, we implore you to contact Theta Wellness Center and learn whether hypnosis can help you.
