A Trusted Hypnosis Center in San Antonio, TX
Occasionally, even individuals with the strongest willpower have difficulty kicking a bad habit, despite their good intentions. Consider smoking addictions: have you changed your daily routine in an attempt to end this detrimental behavior? Have you changed your daily routine, medications, and diet without any results? If you still haven’t found relief from your smoking addiction, you may be using the wrong form of treatment. Our hypnosis center in San Antonio, TX, uses hypnotherapy to help our clients with smoking cessation.
If the thought of hypnosis conjures images of someone swinging a pendulum and chanting “you’re getting sleepy,” then it’s time to modernize the way you think about hypnosis. And we’re here to help. Hypnosis is a well-documented technique with the potential to help anyone struggling with life’s challenges. Depend on our hypnotist to help you reach your full potential and make positive life changes. Regardless of what you’re trying to overcome—from stress to smoking—you can rely on hypnotherapy to help you achieve your goals.
How Hypnosis Works
At the most basic level, hypnosis is used to focus the mind. Contrary to popular myths, those who undergo hypnotic treatments aren’t rendered unconscious. Rather, they remain fully awake while being placed in a heightened state of concentration. During a session, the client retains their awareness and control at every moment and can terminate the session at any time if desired.
As people, we all develop patterns of action, thought, and emotion within our conscious mind. After many repetitions, these patterns—both good and bad—become a part of us. Hypnosis provides an in-depth look at the subconscious where these patterns reside. When clients are in a relaxed, hypnotic state, the hypnotist can communicate directly with their unconscious mind and provide hypnotic suggestions. Over time, these suggestions work to reverse undesired habits.
How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Quit Smoking
With more than two decades of experience working with the mind, William Moyer, LVN, CHt has determined why clients struggle to quit smoking. Some of these reasons include:
Fear that they won’t be able to enjoy life
Fear that they will gain weight
Fear that they have to endure an awful trauma to get free
Fear that they will never be craving-free.
When smokers attempt to quit using alternative methods, they often experience depression related to the deprivation of a crutch or guilty pleasure. Hypnotherapy makes clients want to end this negative habit by removing this feeling of deprivation. At my practice, I consider it my duty to provide clients with a comfortable and calming experience that produces results, as opposed to the many ineffective strategies and gimmicks for smoking cessation, such as nicotine substitutes, e-cigarettes, inhalers, patches, and nasal sprays. No more needles. No more lasers. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and keep an open mind.
Taking a Unique Approach to Hypnotic Treatment
At my center, I combine the science of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) with the best traditional hypnosis techniques to elevate hypnosis to a higher level of success. Many clients report a lack of pain or difficulty when attempting to quit smoking. This is because my treatment transfers the pleasure derived from smoking to a much healthier habit of their choosing. For this reason, few clients demonstrate the typical problems associated with smoking cessation, such as weight gain and the inability to find enjoyment.
As a hypnotist, I work hard to help my clients make changes to their health, wealth, and freedom—just like a life coach. Count on me to help you create the life that you truly want. Contact me today to schedule an appointment in San Antonio, TX.
Why People Don't Stop Smoking
Most people know these three facts:
• Quitting smoking can save you approximately $2,000 per year
• Quitting smoking can add years to your life
• Quitting smoking is the best choice to make for your health
So, why do people continue to smoke? Regardless of where I’ve traveled in the world, I’ve learned that it comes down to one thing: fear.
• Fear that you’ll have to give up your crutch or pleasure
• Fear that you won’t be able to enjoy life or handle stress
• Fear that you will put on weight
• Fear that you’ll have to go through an awful trauma to get free
• Fear that you’ll never get completely free of the craving
However, all of these fears are just a smaller part of one overriding fear. The one simple reason is that you’re afraid quitting will be too painful or difficult.
In fact, my technique is so relaxing and informative that you’ll leave as a happy non-smoker after only one session. I feel so confident in my approach because of the impressive number of successful cases I’ve seen, and you can be next. You’re sure to love the sense of elation and relief that you’ll feel knowing that you’ve finally achieved what every smoker wishes to achieve.
Combining NLP & Traditional Hypnosis
Since the British Medical Association (BMA) and the American Medical Association (AMA) approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the 1950s, thousands of people have found it to be a powerful method to stop smoking, lose weight, and enhance their lives. However, different hypnotists achieve varying levels of success, depending on their experience, skill, techniques, and general competence. What makes my approach more effective than others is the fusion of traditional hypnotic techniques with neuro-linguistic programming. This approach transfers the pleasure derived from smoking to a different (and healthier) habit that you choose, such as relaxing or drinking more water. Therefore, many of the common side effects of smoking cessation—weight gain, bad moods, and more—are nonexistent with my approach. The only effect you’ll feel is enhanced health, wealth, and freedom.
RESEARCH USING HYPNOSIS TO STOP SMOKING
* Hypnosis to Quit Smoking – One Session (Compared to Placebo and No Treatment)
Use of Single Session Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation.
Results: When they were followed-up at 4, 12, 24 and 48 weeks, the researchers found that significantly more members of the hypnosis group had quit smoking than the other two groups. They also found that among those still smoking, those who were in the hypnosis group were smoking significantly less than those in the other two groups.
Notes: This study involved 60 participants who were randomly assigned to one of three groups: one that received a placebo, one that received a single hypnosis session and one that received no treatment.
