Improve Your Health Through Your Subconscious

Hypnosis is a scientifically proven technique that can promote accelerated human change. With Hypnosis we can create desired changes in behavior and encourage mental and physical well-being. Hypnotherapy has been shown to treat a variety of ailments and issues, such as depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, fears and phobias. It is also effective in helping clients to realize their potential.
In this state of deep concentration people are highly responsive to suggestion. You are always in control and remember everything.
When something new happens to us, we remember it and learn a particular behavior in response to that circumstance. Memories stored in our brains hold the original physical and emotional reactions that occurred when the given memory was first formed. Each time similar events occur again, the physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. These reactions may be inappropriate or unhealthy. In hypnotherapy, the trained therapist guides you to remember the event that led to the first reaction, separate the memory from the learned behavior, and reconstruct the event with new, healthier associations.
In this relaxed state, a person will feel very at ease physically yet fully awake mentally.
During hypnosis, a person's body relaxes while his or her thoughts become more focused and attentive. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis decreases blood pressure and heart rate, and alters certain types of brain wave activity.
Even though hypnosis has been employed in psychotherapy practices around the world for decades, the potential patients’ first reaction can usually be described along the lines of fear, worry, or anxiety.
This is possibly due to the depiction that hypnosis has received from the media. If you’ve seen a hypnosis act on stage or in a film, you might assume you know what to expect. In truth, however, the reality could not be any more different. For one thing, professional therapists will not make you cluck like a chicken, to the great amusement of an audience. For another, they can help you overcome malignant behavioral patterns such as dependence, substance abuse, or other emotional problems.
Those who wonder what to expect from a hypnosis session at Shin Wellness in Miami should know that comfort and relaxation are the main concern of our staff. As you unwind and allow your body to relax, the Hypnotherapist will proceed to instruct you on what to do to maximize the potential of the session. He or she will gently guide you through the process, sometimes by making use of metaphoric language. The two of you will work together toward your desired aims.
There is no need to worry about a potentially jarring experience. Hypnosis therapy is a process based on physical relaxation. As your body gently slips into comfort, your mind will remain alert. This will allow you to register and process all the spoken instructions coming from your clinical hypnosis therapist. You will feel casually removed from the experience, as if you were a distant observer onto the scene.
Many people avoid hypnosis therapy because of control concerns. It is a commonly held fallacy that the hypnosis professional takes control of your mind and body. This is entirely untrue. Whether you listen to pre-recorded clinical hypnosis suggestions on a CD or undertake a session at a clinic, you control the experience. Should you feel discomfort, you can always terminate the session. Most patients, however, report feeling blissfully comfy and say they have absolutely no reason to leave.
One of the most important benefits of clinical hypnotherapy is that it counters the negative effects of prolonged periods of stress. Stress is finally no longer regarded as a minor issue by the medical field. Recent research indicates that an increasing number of workers are forced to take medical leaves of absence, on account of dealing with stress.
According to a study undertaken in June 2012 by the American Psychological Association’s Institute of Stress in New York, 77 percent of people polled said they regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress and 48 percent stated stress has negatively affected their personal and professional life.
One way to explain stress is to look at its etymology. The word in modern English comes from the Latin verb “stringere”, i.e. tightening, compressing or applying pressure. If you’ve ever felt “stressed out”, you will probably find this definition to closely describe your experience. Stress is all about feeling the pressure of everyday life—to such a great extent that you feel you are no longer able to handle it all.
The problem most people find difficult to manage is the fact that stress can stem from a great number of sources. Often enough, those sources are the most important things in their lives: professions, relationships, money, etc.. Nowadays, we live in a highly stress-inducing environment, in which families and marriages collapse under the weight of job anxieties, making ends meet turns out to be increasingly difficult, and jobs seem to be perpetually on the line. It can prove extremely difficult to balance out so many demands, especially since they are all interconnected.
