Hypnosis for Weight Loss
Does hypnosis work for weight loss? Yes, hypnosis for weight loss has been a proven success. Weight loss hypnosis is a relatively new technique, and it can be extremely effective, especially when combined with a sensible diet and exercise. Hypnosis works so well because most overweight people have a real want to “lose” weight – the technique taps into their subconscious mind. Long term hypnosis sessions reinforce this over time, so that food cravings are minimal – a big advantage over diets or trends that don’t remove the food cravings. Most people simply put the weight back on after trying to diet for some time. In fact the term “weight loss” is one the hypnotherapy profession would like to Lose. The way people talk is the way they think. Words have very literal meaning for the subconscious mind. So if we say “I want to lose weight”, it may very well mean the that the weight you have lost is something that you can “find” again. So maybe hypnosis for weight reduction would be a better term? On a another note studies have shown a correlation between weight gain (especially in woman) and early trauma. Using hypnosis we can create new ways of thinking and feeling to discard the connections to old ways of perceiving ourselves and the world around us. In essence we can stop trying to “insulate” ourselves from our fear.
Hypnosis really can work if you approach it with an open mind. Almost everyone is capable of being hypnotized, even those of us who are skeptical. Mind over matter is perhaps something of a clichÃ©, but that’s exactly how the technique of hypnosis works.
