Within every being there lies the potential to elevate, heal, and inspire ourselves as well as others. Hypnosis is considered the best-known tool to actualize this process. By delving into the roots of human conditioning and habit formation, we may work with the non-tangible aspects of human behavior. To this end, we utilize effective methods to eradicate negative and harmful habits. Through hypnosis, you can better review your belief systems, perspectives, and values that drive thinking and behaviors. Hypnosis is a state of altered consciousness induced by oral suggestions or other forms of stimuli to the senses. It is a state in which the subconscious mind enjoys a heightened level of susceptibility to suggestion by bypassing the filters of the conscious mind, relaxation, imagery, and suggestion.
SERVICES: The services to be provided do not include the practice of medicine. The practitioner is not a licensed physician, psychotherapist, or social worker. These services are non-diagnostic and are complementary to the healing arts services that are licensed by the state of Kansas. During hypnosis sessions, clients are completely aware of their surroundings and suggestions, however, persons are so relaxed that they rarely pay attention to anything but the voice of the hypnotist. The ability to visualize or imagine is enhanced. Most clients comment that they were truly relaxed and have not been so relaxed in quite some time. Hypnosis is safe and pleasurable.
