Hypnotherapy is a natural state of mind that we enter to many times and in many ways, through meditation, imagination, guided imagery, day dreaming and relaxation. A trance is state of a focused inner awareness, an altered state for therapeutic endpoint. You are entering trance many times during the day, for example when you are watching a movie, tv program, reading a book, driving or simply being absorbed in an activity.
Many people report that becoming hypnotized feels like falling asleep, with a difference of being aware of the surrounding environment and are able to hear my voice. Hypnosis is characterized by a pleasant and relaxing state of mind.
Why is hypnosis effective?
Our brain operates on different levels of activity, they are called brainwaves.
When you enter a relaxation/ hypnotic state of mind, your brain would typically enter an Alpha Wave or Theta Brainwave.
Alpha wave produces relaxation, healing, reduction in stress, increased activity in immune system and realise of Endorphins (body’s natural pain killer)
When we go a little deeper into relaxation or day dreaming, our brain will enter Theta brainwave. Theta waves are slow. Theta wave is also characterised as creative and can be considered the subconscious mind. This is a very powerful state of mind where the link between conscious and subconscious mind is established where profound changes happen.
During this state of mind, a person is guided by the therapist to help and make unconscious changes as appropriate. Beneficial and therapeutic suggestion will be given directly to your subconscious mind. Under the hypnosis, conscious mind is temporary bypassed, making the subconscious mind more receptive to therapy. The communication and the link is established between your conscious and subconscious mind. During hypnosis, you are always in control.
Our subconscious mind does not recognise imagined event from reality, hence Albert Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge.
Before the discovery of chemical anaesthesia in 1846, British doctors explored the possibility of using hypnosis for surgical procedures. There are records of hundreds of operations successfully completed with the assistance of hypnosis for pain management.
Understanding conscious and unconscious mind:
Researches in biofeedback have discovered that it is possible for average people, not just yogis, to learn to control voluntarily heart rate, muscle tension, sweat-gland activity, hormones, skin temperature and wide range of internal physical states normally considered to be under involuntary control by the autonomic nervous system. With clinical hypnotherapy you can learn how to control and adjust your emotional and physical functions.
During hypnosis you will be able to activate your own healing powers which can speed up the process of your recovery, ease your symptoms and motivate you to accomplish your goal
Chronic Pain control
What is pain?
Our brain produces the feelings of pain as a warning sign and it is there to protect us from further damage and is letting us know that we ether need to take a rest or seek medical help.
Pain serves us a purpose and the purpose is to tell us that something isn’t right.
A specialised nerve within the body detects and warn of us of any changes that occur; such as chemical imbalance, pressure or temperature. Pain can be both, physical or emotional. Feelings of pain can increase when a brain perceives a situation as danger. The neurons which carrying pain, the alert messages are known as nociceptors. Pain is a biological process essential for life.
Pain is subjective and experienced differently by individuals.
While pain can have physiological causes, it can also be caused by emotional stress alone. Pain can also be closely linked to tension and fear.
The effects of hypnosis on pain is well documented and hypnosis is increasingly being used for pain control.
Research has shown that hypnotic pain control is not a placebo effect but a physiological action that explains its effectiveness. It has been now shown through PET scan that hypnosis directly affects areas of the brain involved in our perception of suffering (the anterior cingulate cortex) during hypnotic pain control activity.

Stress and Anxiety
Research tells us of a powerful connection between mind and body. It is well known that stress increases susceptibility to illness.
Whist little amount of stress can be healthy, give us boost and pump up our motivation, chronic stress – the stress that is held in the body and not released, plays significant role in many illnesses.
Chronic stress frequently produces hormonal imbalance. Hormones play a critical role in regulating body functions, hence chronic stress can have physical consequences such as hypertension, psychical pain, (it makes chronic pain worse), kidney damage, IBS, suppression of immune system which means that our immune system doesn’t produce enough white blood cells to fight an illness and it makes us more prone to develop viral or bacterial infections.
Many Anxiety symptoms experienced are direct result of fight or flight response.

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming
Neuro– Nervous System in which the experience is received and processed through the five senses
Linguistic– A language
Programming– The ability to organise our communication and neurological systems in order to achieve specific results.
NLP has been created by Jon Grinder and Richard Bandler back in the 1970’s. They formalised the idea that people build mental representations. They defined thinking as thinking in pictures, thinking in words, and thinking in feelings, tastes and smells.
Visual: Look/ See
Auditory: Say/ Sound/ Hear
Humans experience themselves and the world they live in through primary modalities of the five senses mentioned above and this is how we attach meaning and perception to what we experience in our mind which essentially determine how we feel and behave.
Neuro Linguistic Programming is about the ability to discover , organise and change the way you communicate with yourself internally or externally in order to achieve specific result.
I remember Dr Richard Bandler saying: “If you change the way you think, you will change the way you feel and if you change the way you feel, you will change the way you behave”
Sub-modalities allow you to change the impact of certain memory/ thoughts by ether amplify the memory/ thought or downplay bad memory/ thought
Our outside world depends of how we think and how we feel.
Please allow us to help you with with amazing and powerful NLP techniques.
During the session you will learn three powerful NLP techniques which will help you to achieve your goal.

Growing Evidence in Reiki Research
Some small studies have been conducted to determine the effectiveness of Reiki. They suggest that patients may use Reiki to find relief from not only the physical aspects of chronic pain, but also the anxiety that often comes with it. According to an article from the University of Minnesota, several studies found that Reiki treatments seem to relax patients, reduce fatigue and depression, and strengthen a person’s overall sense of wellbeing.
