Want to understand more about Hypnosis and how it works?



         Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, completely safe, and very relaxing.


What is hypnosis?

              During hypnosis, the physical body and conscious mind are in a totally relaxed, natural state, while the subconscious mind remains awake and receptive to suggestion.  Hypnosis is an education and communication process to a person's mind that allows his/her conscious and subconscious minds to believe the same message or suggestion.

              Clinical Hypnosis is the practice of working with people for the purpose of improving their well-being or dealing with unwanted behavior, and to improve the client's health and lifestyle.  At Mind Your Body, we practice clinical hypnosis exclusively for positive change in our clients.


How does hypnosis help?

                The ability to reprogram emotional attitudes and reactions is a latent talent within every human being. Hypnosis is the most functional and reasonable way to train life-long attitudes, rather than suffer a lifetime of emotional accidents the conscious mind is unable to change.

How does the subconscious accept suggestion?

                Hypnotic suggestions bypass the intellectual mind, the conscious mind, and focus in on the subconscious. When given a new suggestion that is within the bounds of a person's belief system and moral orientation, the subconscious mind accepts it literally as a new reality. Text Box:

you always 
get what you always got.
 So, if you do
something that you havenít done,
youíll get something that you havenít had.Ē 
- Unknown.


Does it Work?

                Definitely.  The success rate for clinical hypnosis is extremely high.  Suggestions stay with some individuals indefinitely, others may need reinforcement.  The effects of hypnosis are cumulative.  The more the techniques are practiced, along with self hypnosis, the more permanent the results become. 

              At Mind Your Body, every session teaches self hypnosis, a simple process to relax or continue the process of improvement.


Is it safe?

                Yes, extremely so. The induction of hypnosis is never dangerous to the client. No one can hypnotize you against your will. You experience total relaxation, and it is non-invasive. You are always in control. Hypnosis is a consent situation in which 10 percent of the effort is the hypnotist's and the remaining 90 percent is the responsibility of the client.    

Can I be Hypnotized?

                Yes.  Studies have shown that the majority of people can be hypnotized in most cases if they are willing. The depth of hypnosis varies with a person's ability to respond. If you are not a naturally responsive subject, you can easily improve your receptivity to hypnosis with practice.  Hypnosis is no different than any other exercise.  The more you practice, the better you become.    

Why Hypnosis?

                Is there some aspect of your life, or how you presently feel, that is not satisfactory? You have within yourself the resources to change the issues that are keeping you trapped.




You deserve to have more and to feel better.


                You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.


             You can feel secure in your decision to use hypnosis.


"Day by day, and in every way...I'm getting better and better"

- Emile Cloe


Is Hypnosis medically approved?


               Yes.  The American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association have approved hypnotherapy for use by professionally responsible individuals.  The British Medical Association adopted hypnosis as a viable therapeutic tool in 1958, the same year as the AMA.
