Emotions Affect Health

Most people are aware of the mind-body connection—how your mental emotions and processes can affect your physical state.

Your body responds to your emotions, whether positively or negatively. When you are stressed, anxious or upset, your body may react and negatively impact your physical health. Poor emotional health can weaken the immune system. In addition, poor emotional health can result in weight gain, anger, stress, anxiety or abuse of alcohol, tobacco or drugs.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Hypnosis

By combining cognitive-behavioral therapy and hypnosis, studies have shown that this combination has been significantly effective in behavior modifications related to stress, anxiety, depression and fear and improving physical well-being related to alcohol and substance abuse, weight management, smoking cessation and anger control issues. These behavior and physical well-being issues commonly co-exist.

Hypnosis produces a state of high focus and heightened awareness and coupled with cognitive-behavioral re-learning becomes a powerful modification tool. In fact, the combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and hypnosis in addressing behavior changes and improving physical well-being have produced very exciting and positive results. Hypnosis and cognitive re-learning can be extremely effective in mental and behavioral changes.

Clinical Hypnosis

Clinical hypnosis produces a highly relaxed state, an altered state of awareness, perception or consciousness that can be used in treating a psychological or physical problem.

Because hypnosis creates a state of concentration and focused attention, one is able to use their mind more powerfully, potentially effecting greater learning and improving self-control.

While there is general agreement that certain effects of hypnosis exist, there are differences of opinion within the research and clinical communities about how hypnosis works. What is known is the use of hypnosis, with its strong cognitive and interpersonal components can affect an individual's response to hypnotic suggestions.

Research supports that hypnotic communication and suggestions can effectively change a person's physiological and neurological functions.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on the relationships of a person's thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Cognitive behavior therapy is used to uncover unhealthy patterns of thought that may be causing self-destructive behaviors. By addressing these patterns, one can develop and constructively restructure thinking that will produce healthier behaviors.

Cognitive behavioral therapy can be employed in the treatment for a range of mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders and other mental issues. This therapy actually improves brain functions as well.
