Being able to relax is a necessary step on the path to sleep… “Numerous methods have been developed to allow people to attain the relaxation response.

Common contemporary examples are guided imagery, hypnosis, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, biofeedback and some forms of yoga.” John Cline Ph.D., Sleepless in America. Psychology Today

Hypnosis itself has been around for centuries: Egyptians in 1550 BC and Mesmer in 1770; Mozart composed the opera “Cosi fan tutte” while hypnotized, Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity was born during self-hypnosis; numerous current-day celebrities are fans of hypnosis (including Tiger Woods, Julia Roberts, Jackie Kennedy, Matt Damon, Ellen DeGeneres, and Oprah.
How is hypnosis conducted? Hypnosis is performed by a trained practitioner who uses verbal cues to create mental images, whereby a state of calm and relaxation is induced to help the patient to cope better with anxiety or pain.
Imagine the right combination of relaxation, meditation, visualization, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, allowing you to feel greater inner peace.
