Weight Loss Hypnosis Techniques
Hypnosis has been proven to be a treatment for several behavioral and psychological problems. It has the potential to treat patients with pains related to burns or pain from cancer.
On top of that, it can also help folks deal with and cure some behavioral issues, for example excessive eating that leads to weight gain.
Hypnosis is defined as induced altered state of consciousness, characterized by heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction.
In order to lose weight, using weight loss hypnosis techniques can allow an individual to be more open and more willing to alter habits that could be causing weight gain.
The hypnotist could suggest a person to change their eating habits and alter his or her exercise routines in a manner that would encourage a healthier lifestyle, leading to the person to lose weight.
Hypnosis could also lead to finding the root cause of why the person struggles with his or her weight in the first place. Perhaps the person has been dealing with more stress lately, or maybe something from his or her past is really weighing on their minds. It is much easier to make the correct suggestions under hypnosis if the hypnotist knows the where the problem begins.
Now that the hypnotist knows where to begin, what other weight loss hypnosis techniques will him or her incorporate?
Once you are sitting in a comfortable position the hypnotist will take you through several techniques to make the most out of the session. He or she will begin by talking to you in an even tone, calm voice. The idea here is to settle you down and get you focused on his or her voice.
He or she will take you through to the next step by helping you relax your whole body. The hypnotist may walk you through that very slowly the first few times so you can learn how to do it more efficiently in sessions later on.
Now that you are truly relaxed the hypnotist is going to begin to take you deeper past that relaxed feeling into a deeper level that will allow you to open up to the suggestions he or she has already spoken to you about prior to hypnotizing you so you know what is coming.
They will make those suggestions allowing your subconscious to hear them and absorb them, and hopefully be replacing the negative behavior with the positive one.
Then as they close the session, they will slowly bring you back up to a more conscious state, still making those suggestions, confirming to both your subconscious and conscious brain that these new suggestions are here to stay.
Using hypnosis for weight loss is a great tool, but should not be the only tool you utilize. We all know that tackling something big like weight loss requires you to come at it from several directions.
So make sure to incorporate more than one avenue here to give you the best shot at the best results. Hypnosis is a great beginning, but you must prepare for the long term and have more than one tool to help you along the way.
