Habits are “learned,” and medical hypnosis and hypnotherapy can help free you of undesired habits… for a new and improved YOU!

Habits are learned behaviors. No one was born with a cigarette in their mouth, biting their nails, a fear of speaking or performing before others. Medical hypnosis and clinical hypnotherapy is a safe and effective way to access your mind-body brain to unlearn old habits and replace them with new learning within your brain.

Advances in neuroimaging with PET scans, functional MRIs (FMRI) and EEG studies have proven that even though we use imagination, hypnotic suggestions, visualization, and ‘pretending’ to offer messages within brain, the results not imaginary; they are real. The neuroscience of brain plasticity or neuroplasticity has shown that the great abundance of neurons in our brains are available to configure into any patterns of learning we choose to create. Hence the current phrase, ‘neurons that fire together, wire together’.

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy can also help remove and change habits by uncovering the emotional life events that created the habits as well as the emotional reasons that have maintained the habit.  And anything that can be learned can be unlearned by learning something else to replace it. For example…

Do you know the power of mental rehearsal? Mental rehearsal works; there is no doubt about it. And combined with your hypnosis, you are using your mind like a magnifying glass to focus and concentrate the learning within brain that is based on what you are focusing on in imagination.

Here are some studies about using mental rehearsal:

Whether it is for removing habits, achieving weight loss, improving skills for playing sports, music, or enhancing any skill that helps you achieve your desires for improvement, we know that using the power of your mind with mental rehearsal and hypnosis works.

Don’t waste your money on nicotine gum or patches. The withdrawal from nicotine is about 72 hours. So, 3-4 days after your last cigarette, the nicotine is gone… but the psychological addiction is still present. Using nicotine gum or patches only prolongs the cessation process. The hypnosis will get you through the first week, and you will be surprised how simple the process is for you to add more and more weeks of being a non-smoker. Check out the American Cancer and American Lung Associations for their literature and statistics on just how rapidly (hours, days, weeks) your body cleans itself up and lets you enjoy breathing fresh clean air again.  My audio smoking cessation program to remove tobacco addiction includes two audio CDs… the first CD’s hypnotic trancework you use daily (while you keep smoking deliberately) until you know you are prepared and absolutely ready to stop tobacco once and forever.  Then, and only then, do you stop smoking, and go to CD #2 which supports your comfort and maintains your determination to enjoy breathing fresh, clean air forever… and comfortably.

Hypnosis is safe, inexpensive, and uses abilities and talents within you that you have not discovered yet. One of the greatest features of using hypnosis to remove habits and create new healthy habits is that YOU must take all the credit for what you achieve with your hypnosis. Remember, hypnosis is not ‘done’ to someone…all hypnosis is self-hypnosis…so you really deserve all the credit for what you achieve with your hypnosis.

And as I tell all my patients, "Everything you need to do this is already within you."
