Learn the Truth About Hypnosis
During hypnosis, a relaxing CD with soothing, healing water sounds (the kind that helps you drift away from your day) may be used to set the stage for life improvements, such as quitting smoking. According to research, when brain waves are slowed down, the way we process information changes. We process from the “top-down” instead of from the “bottom-up.” This lets the subconscious mind accept the suggestions that allow you to make the desired changes.

The improvement came even though smokers gained an average of 9 pounds after they quit, researchers found. Their levels of so-called good cholesterol improved, too.
“A lot of people are afraid to quit smoking because they’re afraid to gain weight,” said the study’s leader, Dr. James Stein, a University of Wisconsin-Madison cardiologist.
A heart attack often motivates longtime smokers to give up the habit.
Results were published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. At Life Matters Hypnotherapy, our hypnosis sessions include language that address this concern.
