Why would you opt for Hypnoacupuncture?
In most cases, the combination of acupuncture and hypnosis will propel you forward into positive changes more quickly than either would alone.
Many issues such as insomnia, anxiety, and weight loss are best treated with a multidimensional approach. While the acupuncture treatment is initiating physiological changes, the hypnosis is shifting deep-seated beliefs and generating new neural pathways, which in turn creates new behaviors and thought patterns.
Combining acupuncture with hypnosis also brings the session to a much deeper level; acupuncture is incredibly relaxing, and this state of induced relaxation helps you to go into the hypnotic state more easily.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
How does this work?
During the first session of Hypnoacupuncture, I will spend a great deal of time going over a health intake, followed by a hypnotherapy intake. After I formulate my treatment plan and point prescription, I insert the needles, and then hypnotize you with the needles in.
Is it harder to go into hypnosis when I have needles in?
On the contrary, the needles will generally help you to go into hypnosis more quickly. Hypnosis is deep relaxation; acupuncture is so calming, it helps you to reach those deep levels of relaxation more quickly.
Can this be used for children and teenagers?
YES, and very often their response to this modality is nothing short of miraculous! I absolutely adore working with this clientele; watching them let go of their anxiety and become empowered and self-assured is the best feeling in the world. Starting them early is a fantastic way to give your kids the tools they need to become resilient and self-confident as they grow older.
What does Hypnoacupuncture treat?
Although the majority of my patients come in for anxiety, insomnia, depression, and weight loss, Hypnoacupuncture can be used to create changes in any patterns you are holding on to that do not serve you. This modality is particularly helpful for issues with low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and negativity.
What do I wear to my session to my Hypnoacupuncture session?
I ask patients to wear comfortable clothing that gives me access to the knees, elbows, and is loose enough so that I can get to their backs. I always have drapes on hand if someone is not appropriately dressed, so be assured that your modesty will be respected here.
How will I be seated?
Similar to a acupuncture session, you'll be lying down on a table in one of my treatment rooms.
How long does a session last?
The session itself is approximately an hour. The initial session is longer, however, since it includes a health intake and a hypnotherapy intake.
How often do you recommend Hypnoacupuncture treatments?
It varies on a case by case basis, but for many issues my recommendation is 4-6 sessions.
