Hypnotherapy is just one of many diverse and holistic treatment methods we offer at Passages Malibu. It has been recognized as a safe and effective way to build self-esteem, help change addictive patterns, and heal childhood trauma and other underlying problems that cause addiction. While in an induced state of mental relaxation, you will be able to recall painful events or underlying traumas and may be more open to suggestion. These sessions are useful in helping you recognize events of the past that have not been reconciled and need healing. In the medical realm, hypnotherapy is often used for the reduction of chronic pain, to replace anesthesia, and to shorten recovery after medical procedures.
In your hypnotherapy sessions, your therapist will tap into any feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, sadness, or pain that you may have. This enables you to recall the first time you had these emotions and see where they are coming from. By going back to the source of these feelings, you will be able to recognize and express them with great clarity, thus releasing the pain. Hypnotherapy also helps you achieve a greater state of mental relaxation, allowing your mind to be more open to positive advice. After several hypnotherapy sessions you will most likely experience less tension, more refreshing sleep, and improved memory. Your Hypnotherapist will work with you to produce better mental responses, reduce cravings, improve self-control, and increase self-esteem.
As your hypnotherapy sessions progress you will experience naturally enhanced productivity, dedication, and respect. At Passages Malibu, you will receive hour-long, one-on-one sessions with your hypnotherapist at least 8 times during your stay.
