Many of us have made the decision to lose weight in 2013, especially after the food decisions we made over the holidays. When diet and exercise are not enough to help you shed those unwanted pounds, it may be time to consult with your Philadelphia hypnotist. Hypnosis can help you lose weight by identifying the emotional or psychological factors behind your eating habits. For example, individuals who are “stress-eaters” can benefit from hypnosis as it can teach them to control their subconscious urges and shift their focus to healthier outlets. Additionally, hypnosis can help client’s change their opinion of dieting and exercising so that these methods are no longer seen as tiresome, unpleasant tasks.
If your New Year’s resolution was to stop smoking, you may also benefit from hypnosis. During the session, the induced state of relaxation allows client’s to develop a set of skills needed to resist the urge to smoke and cope with withdrawal symptoms. In many cases, clients are given audiotapes to use at home in order to reinforce the skills gained while under hypnosis. Wipe the slate clean in 2013 and kick the habit for good with the help of a professional hypnotherapist.
Whether you want to stop smoking, lose weight, or are suffering from tension headaches, hypnosis may be your best solution.
