When you hear the word “hypnosis” you may think of a performer coercing members of an audience into doing stunts, or the word may conjure up images of someone swinging a watch back and forth saying, “You are getting very sleepy…”

The truth is that hypnosis is not a trick and it is not magic. Rather, hypnosis is a way of directing a person’s attention away from outside distractions and giving them the ability to receive and respond to suggestion. While hypnosis may have gained notoriety for its entertainment value it can also be a useful way to help people dealing with trauma and pain.

Hypnosis has been in use for many years. At the Theta Wellness Center, we work with you using hypnosis to address such issues as addiction and PTSD. Hypnosis has also been helpful when applied to problems such as headaches, dental work, burns, depression and chronic pain. Hypnosis has even been used to help make the birthing process easier and to relieve anxiety during the birthing experience.

If you feel as if you have tried a variety of methods to cope with issues around pain, addiction, depression, or related problems, yet nothing seems to have worked for you, perhaps it is time to meet with Mike Simpson at the Theta Wellness Center in Sandy, Utah. Mike will be happy to spend some time with you to explain how hypnosis works and how it might benefit you. Not only will Mike help you to understand how hypnosis can offer relief, but he will also work with you to uncover the reasons for your pain, and if necessary, help you craft a plan to address not only the symptoms but also the source of your issue.

If you live on the Wasatch Front and find yourself experiencing chronic or acute pain, or if you are facing emotional or mental health issues, we invite you to contact the Theta Wellness Center staff by calling 801-590-7461 today. We look forward to walking with you on the road to health and wholeness.
