Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you're in hypnosis, you feel calm and relaxed, and are open to suggestions.

 

Hypnosis can be used to help gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It's important to know that although you're more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don't lose control over your behavior.

 

A lot of people assume a hypnosis session is similar to the way Hollywood portrays it in fictional movies or something of the kind. This is not very accurate. Hypnosis has been proven to be a real method of treatment. It has the power to change your mental and physical health for the better, and this is why I ask that it be taken seriously. 

 

Numerous scientific studies have shown that the mind can exert a real and powerful effect on the body and that clients undergoing hypnosis before, during or after surgery need less pain medication, have less blood loss and heal more quickly. Evidence is showing that it can be significantly therapeutic to patients which is now influencing major hospitals to use hypnosis.

 

The body-mind connection is very real indeed, and just as Reiki has been embraced by many hospitals, hypnosis is now being recognized as a viable method of helping patients.

To prepare for a hypnotherapy session, the key factor is to be comfortable enough that you won’t be able to focus on anything else.

  1. Wear comfortable clothing to help you relax.

  2. Be well-rested so that you're not inclined to fall asleep during the session 

  3. Have a meal approximately 2 hours before the session. If you are hungry – this thought would be distracting you. 

  4. Stimulants (like coffee, for example) can also make it difficult to completely relax, so try not drinking anything with caffeine or lots of sugar for at least 2 hours prior to the hypnosis.

  5. Attend the session with an open mind, believe with all your heart in a positive outcome. A Positive attitude will bring positive results. Also understand that It is important that you are the one that wants the session and you are not coming in because a family member or friend is trying to convince you to do it. For the session to be successful YOU MUST wholeheartedly believe in yourself. All Hypnosis is self-hypnosis. Put your mind, heart, and soul into the session and you should be very pleased with the results. 

  6. Come to the session with goals. Write down the reasons why you want to undergo hypnosis. How you think it might help you? What problems do you want to resolve? 

  7. Last but not at all least be very honest and ask as many questions as you wish. This session is as important to me as it should be to you. I want you to feel very comfortable and relaxed so that together we can have a promising session.

Please No walk ins...

Curious as to why Noēma? 

The word noema derives from the Greek word νόημα meaning "thought", or "what is thought about" As for the symbol being used as an "O" This is called a UNALOME. The spirals are meant to symbolize the twists and turns in life, and the straight lines the moment one reaches enlightenment or peace and harmony. My only edit was to tighten the base spiral to a Hypnosis spiral.
