FAQs Regarding Hypnosis for Weight Loss, Smoking, and More
You’ve tried everything. Diets for weight loss, nicotine patches for smoking: nothing works. We’re all different, so while some people have success with these treatments, it’s safe to assume that many of us will not. Serious problems require serious solutions. That’s where we come in. Hypnosis is a powerful technique for overcoming the fears and addictions that keep us stuck in the same negative cycles of thought and behavior. You can change your life for the better. Let us show you how.
Hypnosis is one of the world’s oldest practices, yet it is still surrounded by myths and misunderstanding. Essentially, hypnosis induces an altered state of consciousness, the state of trance that naturally occurs just before and after sleep. When you are in this state, your brain waves slow down, and your unconscious mind is better able to process and accept suggestions for change. Here are the answers to some of our frequently asked questions. We hope our answers help to clear up any confusion about this scientifically-backed technique that is successfully applied fields as diverse as medicine, psychology, professional sports, and the arts.
Q: How Does Hypnosis Work? A: The mind works on two levels - the conscious and the unconscious. We make decisions, think, and act with our conscious mind. The unconscious mind controls our habits. In the relaxed state known as hypnosis, we can communicate directly with the unconscious mind. This is why it is so quick and easy to change habits of a lifetime with hypnosis.
Q: Will Hypnosis Work for Me? A: Generally speaking, every normal person is “hypnotizable.” That is, people with an IQ of at least 70 and no severe mental disorders can easily go into trance. Therefore, virtually anyone can achieve successful results using hypnosis.
Q: How Will I Know If I Am Hypnotized? A: Most people cannot tell the difference between the hypnotized and the waking states. Some people feel relaxed and lethargic, and others feel a lightness. One thing that people do notice is an inexplicable change in their daily behaviors.
Q: Is Hypnosis Safe? A: Hypnosis is completely safe. You are aware and in control at every moment and can terminate the session at any time. Hypnosis is not sleep, nor can you get “stuck” in a state of hypnosis. And, you cannot be made to do something against your will! Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable experience.
Q: How Does Hypnosis Help Me To Kick the Smoking Habit? A: Because smoking is a habit, it is controlled by the unconscious mind. Since hypnosis works directly with the unconscious, this is the only method that makes sense! We can help you effortlessly transition into the healthy lifestyle of a happy non-smoker!
Since 1992, according to New Scientist, it has been known that “Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking.” Its quote was based upon a study cited within the Journal of Applied Psychology, earlier that same year.

ATLANTA — Quitting smoking can turn
A year after kicking the habit, smokers' arteries
showed signs of reversing a problem that can set the stage for heart
disease, according to the first big study to test this.
improvement came even though smokers gained an average of 9 pounds after
they quit, researchers found. Their levels of so-called good
cholesterol improved, too.
"A lot of people are afraid to quit
smoking because they're afraid to gain weight," said the study's leader,
Dr. James Stein, a University of Wisconsin-Madison cardiologist.
new research shows these people gain a health benefit even though they
pick up pounds that hopefully can be shed once they've gotten used to
not smoking, he said.
Smoking is one of the top causes of heart
disease, and about one-third of smoking-related deaths in the U.S. stem
from heart disease.
A heart attack often motivates longtime
smokers to give up the habit.
Results were published in the
Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
