Using EOL Hypnotherapy Techniques
What is Hypnotherapy (Hypnosis)?
Hypnotherapy or hypnosis is guided relaxation and/or concentration to relax the physical body and reach into the subconscious for a deeper state of awareness. It is a perfectly natural altered state of consciousness similar to daydreaming. The Hypnotherapist may integrate these techniques with other modalities when healing conditions including addictions, anorexia, obesity, and more.
COMMON TYPES OF HYPNOTHERAPY:
Clinical or Medical Hypnotherapy, Guided Imagery, Visualization:
A process which helps find and release a multitude of physical and emotional stresses that may inhibit recovery from an accident, surgery, illness, or emotionally traumatic event. It is beneficial for preparing for surgery as well as speeding the recovery process from organ transplants, cardiac surgery, joint replacements, etc.
Immune System Hypnotherapy:
A system to determine causative factors for specific immune system problems, and to stimulate the proper immune response via the mind-body connection. It is a very helpful adjunct for Cancer, Lyme Disease and Arthritis treatments, organ transplants, auto-immune disorders, and more.
Regression Hypnotherapy (Time Line Hypnosis):
A technique used to recall information from one's past to aid the healing of old emotional or physical injuries that are contributing to current physical and emotional complaints or symptoms.

ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT HYPNOTHERAPYWill I lose control when under hypnosis?
No. This is a common misconception about hypnosis. Nobody can be hypnotized against their will, or forced to do anything against their will while under hypnosis. A trained hypnotherapist works together with their client to resolve concerns and empower change in his/her life. You will never do anything against your morals or ethics while under hypnosis.
The misconceptions of 'control' seem to originate from stage hypnosis, which involves people willing to participate in the stage act for a laugh.
What is the difference between hypnosis, hypnotherapy and hypnotism?
Hypnosis is the technique or practice of inducing a relaxed or trance state, i.e., enhanced state of awareness.
Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic application of hypnosis techniques by a certified Hypnotherapist in a clinical setting. The therapist is focused on creating a safe and secure environment to facilitate the client's goals.
The therapists at The Way To Balance are certified in Hypnotherapy.
Hypnotism is the more general word for applying hypnosis techniques, used primarily by uncertified practitioners.
Will I be asleep during hypnotherapy?
No. Hypnosis is generally a very relaxed state similar to daydreaming, but it is not sleep. After a hypnotherapy session many people do not believe that they were hypnotized at all. This comes from misconceptions about just what a 'relaxed' or 'trance' state is. You may in fact bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time during a session, as easily as you come out of a daydream.
Can anyone be hypnotized?
Yes, the client simply needs to be willing to enter into a relaxed or trance state. Just like some people find it easier to relax than others, some undergo hypnosis more rapidly and deeply than others. However, with the assistance of a skilled hypnotherapist, virtually anyone enters at least a light state of hypnosis.
