Over the years, self improvement and personal growth using hypnosis has helped millions of people change their lives permanently because it is a safe and powerful tool for changing your thoughts, feelings and habits.
Hypnosis is NOT mystical or magical in any way. It IS a very effective mental tool that enables people to take control of things that may have seemed beyond their control in the past. Hypnosis is a completely natural, yet different, state of consciousness from the normal waking state. When a person is in the state of hypnosis s/he is completely awake and alert. S/He knows exactly what is happening at all times. You can not be controlled by someone using hypnosis. While under hypnosis, your awareness is actually heightened and carefully focused. You become very receptive to positive suggestions that are acceptable to you, and are able to learn from the experiences perceived in the hypnotic state.
What is Light and Sound Therapy?
Each of our senses (vision, touch, smell, taste and hearing) respond to activity from the environment and transmit that information to the brain. The senses of sight and hearing, by their very nature, provide a favorable mechanism to influence brainwaves. By presenting this pulsed audio and visual stimulation to the brain via the light and sound machine, after a short period of time, the brain begins to resonate, or entrain, at the same frequency as the stimulus.
Because of this, we can slow down the brainwaves for: relieving stress, meditation, providing pain relief, inducing dream states and improving sleep. They can also be used to speed up brainwaves, making them ideal tools to treat slow brainwave disorders such as Attention Deficit Disorder, closed-head brain injury, Fibromyalgia (FMS), PMS, and Chronic Fatigue. They are frequently used to reduce depression, anxiety, insomnia and hypertension and for non-clinical applications such as enhancing mental performance and boosting the creativity area of your brain. How can Biofeedback help Me?
What on earth is biofeedback?
John A. Corson, PhD., professor of psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School and an expert in the field of biofeedback gives this explanation:-
"Basically, what a biofeedback unit does is monitor a biological process that would be otherwise difficult or impossible for the subject to detect," Dr. Corson says. "Changes in body function are then transformed into an easily understood signal, such as a tone or meter reading, so that the subject can hear or see exactly what his/her body is doing from moment to moment."
The end product is a direct line of communication with how you're really feeling. He goes on to say:- “even 10 to 20 minutes daily, done regularly, can have a beneficial effect. "Besides the promise of daily relaxation, biofeedback in conjunction with stress-management training often delivers other bonuses, such as better sleep, relief from stress, a reduction of high blood pressure.”.
