What is EFT?

From the outside, Emotional Freedom Techniques can appear to simply be an easy way of physically tapping energy points on the body. However on the inside EFT is working to reduce physical and emotional recovery times for those suffering from a wide array of issues.  EFT uses a combination of cognitive therapy and acupressure designed to target and heal any underlying emotional issues that may be resulting in physical ailments.

How Can it Help You?

The fact that emotional trauma tends to present itself physically in the body shows how trauma can hinder our healing processes.  EFT can help people manage stress and negative emotions encountered on a daily basis. Hypnosis combined with EFT are valuable tools that have proven successful in helping to change reactions and feelings where other techniques may have failed, allowing individuals to function more easily in daily life.

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

The Mind Enhancement Center agrees with the CDC statement, “Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body, causing many diseases and affecting the health of smokers in general. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as long-term benefits for you and your loved ones.”  A large percentage of smokers want to quit for health purposes, what’s holding them back?

Learn more about the power of hypnosis to curb your smoking habit and continue reading.

Understanding the Physical Hook

The sensation of smoke filling your lungs and the feeling of relaxation that comes with it is only part of the craving. It’s the body’s physical response to the smoke and nicotine. Some may crave a cigarette just for the nicotine. However, this craving has its drawbacks. Nicotine withdrawal has many symptoms that are unpleasant, ranging from headaches to nausea. Understanding the health risks that come along with smoking and what’s triggering this habit is important, especially for hypnosis. During your session with our trained hypnotist, you can control your urges and suppress that automatic response to light up.

Understanding the Mental Compulsion

Many smokers believe cigarette smoking relieves stress, calms the nerves, and helps them relax. In reality, nicotine is a stimulant and actually has the opposite effect. Also, cigarette smoking is like an old friend that you don’t want to let go. Smoking becomes automatic for most users and they reach out for that cigarette without thinking. It is a compulsion. However, hypnotic suggestions can change your desire to smoke, giving you the power to overcome the urge to smoke. 

Conclusion

What is a Mental Health Day?

When life becomes too overwhelming for you, a mental health day may be needed. But what does this mean? Well according to Gunderson Health System, “a mental health day is a day meant to help reduce stress and burnout. It can provide a pause to come back with more energy, less stress and a renewed spirit.” Learn more on how to improve your mental well-being on your day off!

When Do I Plan a Mental Health Day?

The stress and worry of life can be exhausting, leaving you feeling tired and not yourself. It’s important to take a step back and focus on your mental health. This means taking a break from work or your personal relationships, giving you a chance to relax. Your mental health day is meant for you, so if you need to schedule time off from work, do so by planning a time and date. Make your mental health a priority!

What Do I Do on My Mental Health Day?

With a full day to yourself, it’s a good idea to think about your needs first. Some questions to ask yourself is: Do you need to relax? Or maybe you need some time with family or friends? Maybe you need a day of shopping and pampering? Whatever you decide to do during your day, this is your chance to regain your mental strength. Prioritize activities that are going to benefit your mental health the most!

What If I Need More Time?

One day may not be enough to recharge. If you need a weekend away or a long vacation, it’s okay to plan for more days off. Your mental health needs are valid, so don’t worry about missing out on upcoming events. If you have a job that requires notice, communicate what days you will be gone.

Coping With Stress During Quarantine

Coping with stress and uncertainty

The coronavirus outbreak may be bringing stress to many people. Fear of the unknown and the potential health issues that such a pandemic can cause has the power of causing strong emotions among adults and children. By coping with such stresses, not only are you making yourself and those around you stronger, but you are also gaining some peace of mind during these trying times. Read along as we dive into ways to cope with stress during the quarantine.

Stress Can Include…

The stress that an infectious disease outbreak may have on people varies. Such stress can include:

  • Trouble sleeping or concentrating. For some, this may mean a shift in their sleeping schedules or lack of sleep, which can affect their state of mind throughout the day. As well as difficulty concentrating, while at work or home.
  • Fear and worry about your health and the health of your loved ones.
  • Worsening of mental health conditions.

How Can Seniors Stay Young?

It is said the senior community are poor subjects for hypnosis. That tends to be far from the truth. We have found that age is just a number and it tends to be more of a state of mind rather than a condition of the body. Many of our seniors with a younger state of mind have the ability to think, act, and even look younger than they actually are. This has given them the ability to walk circles around their younger counterparts at times. Read on and find out why seniors are great subjects for hypnosis.

What are the Problems?

Seniors, for the most part, deal with a lot of the same issues as the younger generations. They too have hopes, dreams, and fears. When they are experiencing problems in their lives, they too are subject to anxiety, stress, depression, and other emotional difficulties. For most of these problems, hypnosis is the perfect solution whether you are young or old.

Seniors too have to deal with habit control, attitude adjustment, phobic reactions, and fear of illness. As their earning days come to an end, concerns of assets and liability as well as income loom overhead.

Then it comes to new scientific and technological breakthroughs. These advancements place them behind the times, making it an overall stressful situation for seniors. Self-esteem and self-confidence go into a decline and those types of downtrends will make them feel they are no longer interesting to others. Withdrawal follows, accompanied by loss of sense of self-worth. This will increase withdrawal tendencies and enters into a cycle that can be completely devastating.

It’s All So Unnecessary

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy have special capabilities. Attitude and behavior modification, the regeneration of self-esteem and self-confidence and motivation are necessary. Clients can be brought to realize that they don’t need scientific savvy to be interesting people. The senior community can discover that younger generations have much to learn and must turn to the older and wiser seniors for information and guidance. They can rediscover themselves through part-time jobs and volunteering in their communities, quickly convincing themselves that they’re needed and are of high value to the younger generation.

Most hypnosis or hypnotherapy achieves success by focusing on one problem at a time. Dealing with what has been sometime referred to as “The Fountain of Youth” program can take a broader approach. Meaning several elements can be involved and all add up to a single problem; feeling old and out of touch.

Steps Taken

With hypnosis and hypnotherapy, the first step is the establishment of trust, the development of a rapport in which the client is willing and able to listen without a pre-established disbelief.

Some members will respond more rapidly and with greater enthusiasm than others. Not only that, but the inter-communication will tend to elevate the laggards. Once participants become comfortable with hypnosis, individual sessions can use regression to recall periods of high self-worth.

With progress comes increased self-esteem and the development of self-confidence. The power of visualization can be used to create mental pictures of success, achievement of goals, and new levels of acceptance.

If you have been thinking of hypnosis as a solution, our team at Mind Enhancement Center should be your first choice. With our years of hands on experience, we can help you during this time of need.

Hypnosis for Insomnia

Are you having trouble getting a good night’s rest? Your mind may race, thinking about an upcoming stressful event, like the first day of a job. You might replay problems from the day before in your mind over and over, such as a work meeting or a fight with a spouse. Sleep hypnosis for insomnia can provide a way to help turn off our minds. By reaching a relaxed state, you can experience the deep sleep your body is craving. If you would like to learn how hypnosis can help with insomnia, then continue reading!

Physical Relaxation

Hypnosis can offer a way for the body to relieve tension. When the muscles in the body start to relax, clients can achieve a feeling of heaviness in the body. Breathing and focus techniques are then implemented in the process. Breathing is important because it focuses your attention on one simple task and allows your body to let go of any remaining tension.

Mental Relaxation

According to Grace Space Hypnosis, “the hypnotic state, much like meditation, is a state of heightened awareness and focus.” By following hypnosis techniques, you can begin to clear your mind of worries and fears. You may start to move away from your conscious thoughts, and find a disconnection from your surroundings. Sleep hypnosis is considered beneficial because it helps slow your internal thoughts and tune them out. Your hypnotist may ask you to think of a color, a simple thought, or other variable to help you drift off to sleep.

Deep Sleep

The transition from a state of hypnosis to sleep is quite natural. Once you’ve relaxed mentally and physically, simple suggestions can allow your body and mind to enter a deep sleep. According to WebMD, “it’s difficult to rouse you during this stage of sleep, and if someone woke you up, you would feel disoriented for a few minutes.” Overall, deep sleep gives your body and mind a chance to recover and heal during the night.

Conclusion

Take advantage of sleep hypnosis and get the deep sleep that your mind and body need. We encourage you to contact the team at the Mind Enhancement Center and get treated for your insomnia or other sleep disorder. We have the resources you need to improve your sleep and be better rested for the day ahead. Visit our website to learn more about our hypnotherapy treatments today!
