Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility, and it often feels like a natural state of deep relaxation. Hypnosis is very safe. All Through-out our day we are going in and out of focused awareness, hearing things in the background, tuning someone out when we are highly focused on something else, this is a part of hypnosis.
What does it feel like? You will hear everything I'm saying while you are in a deeply relaxed state, you will hear all the beneficial sounds and words I am speaking to you. At no point will you lose control of your mind and at any time during the session we may even have a dialogue, you only provide as much information as YOU are willing to share.
In three weeks, I’ve learned and changed so much on this potteresque mind-body journey. Information and demonstration are always spot on. My goals are acknowledged and addressed. June and Sheila are consummate professionals. June’s enthusiasm and nutrition advice for a healthy eating lifestyle have energized my day to day. Sheila’s personally tailored self hypnosis sessions reach into my mind and give me peace.
I’m looking forward to the next session of this wellness program.
*I have to say that prior to the first of the 4 sessions I was extremely skeptical of yet another weight loss program and more specifically hypnosis in general. Mind you I had no prior experience of any kind with hypnosis but a lifetime various weight loss attempts.
The sessions with June & Sheila are a combination of group discussion on nutrition and food education & approximately 1 hour of hypnosis. Sheila incorporated suggestions during the hypnosis that were based on our input. For example, I shared that I always felt I needed something sweet at night after dinner and that I tended graze in the kitchen while preparing meals – usually on taco chips. After the first session I completely stopped eating at night, still haven’t had any bread or taco ships and not a single piece of candy since before Halloween! This change in behavior was huge for me. Simple changes NOT deprivation make a big difference in how you look and feel.
In our discussions we learned about the effects of sugar, caffeine, dairy, carbohydrates when combined with protein. June shared recipes, dietary options, delicious samples and much, much more. These few simple behavior changes have resulted in 12 “pain free” lost pounds (so far), a more educated approach to grocery shopping, and significantly improved self esteem.
I am so glad I participated in the program and highly recommend it!
