What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of highly-focused concentration, referred to as “the zone” or in a state of “flow.”  This mental state is achieved through the use of specific relaxation and other techniques that are each customized for each client in order to quiet the critical mind and allow the client’s subconscious to receive positive suggestions for mental, emotional, and physical health, well-being, and optimal performance in life, at work, or in sports.  Many terms such as guided imagery, visualization, mental rehearsal, guided meditation, and guided breath work are all euphemisms for guided hypnosis. The use of hypnosis may help overcome limiting beliefs, remove obstacles to your success, change stubborn unwanted behaviors, and achieve your goals more quickly and in a more lasting way.

Fears and Phobias

Fears and Phobias

Some fears are born from truly frightening experiences that leave a person traumatized for years. Others fears often start innocently, usually in childhood. Maybe you climbed too high in a tree and suddenly you were afraid of heights. Or you watched a scary movie about spiders and now every bug seems huge. These are ideas that our subconscious latches onto and even without a genuine risk, percolates into a real issue. Here’s the interesting part, the brain doesn’t know the difference between a real trauma and an image that has grown larger than life. It’s all the same in our minds. When left untreated, phobias can impact your life for years, and may even worsen over time. If you suffer from a fear or aversion that you can’t seem to shake, hypnosis can help. Hypnosis works by accessing the subconscious and reprogramming the brain’s response to stimuli. Hypnosis is so effective in this area that many of our clients experience improvement after only a single session!

Behavior Change

Behavior Change

Whether it’s smoking, overeating, nail biting, or something else, we all have behaviors we wish we didn’t. Some are benign and more of a nuisance than problematic. Other behaviors however, undermine or even damage our health and wellbeing. More often than not, these unwanted behaviors and addictions stem from some deep-seated thought or belief held deep in our subconscious. If you have one of these issues, the logical-rational part of your brain knows that this behavior or behaviors are not good for you and yet you can’t stop because your subconscious can’t hear you say, “enough!” This is where hypnosis can help. Hypnosis works by speaking directly to the subconscious and replacing the negative thought patterns that keep you tied to the unwanted behavior. Schedule a consultation today and we’ll custom-create a strategy to break even your most stubborn habits.

Children and Adolescents

Children and Adolescents

Children and adolescents are imaginative, extraordinarily open-minded and adaptive. These same great qualities also mean that they can be susceptible to over-active imaginations that perceive problems where there aren’t any, and failure everywhere. This level of stress can undermine a child’s confidence and cause performance and behavioral issues, fear or phobias, and stress-related problems. Hypnosis can help! Hypnosis is a safe, chemical-free alternative to pharmaceutical therapies, and perfect for children adolescents and teens precisely because they are so “imaginative, extraordinarily open-minded and adaptive.” This openness means that the critical, rational mind is easier to quiet and the subconscious mind easier to engage.

Stress and Anxiety

Stress and Anxiety

Being stressed is a badge of honor these days. The more stressed you are, the busier you are, and if you’re really busy, you must be very successful. Sound familiar? However, all this stress and the related anxiety that goes along with it create a physical and psychological toll. Recent studies even suggest that anxiety suffers face a higher rate of cardiovascular events and heart disease; and elevated stress levels are fueled by rises in cortisol, the so-called “fight or flight” hormone that gives us the ability to run from real danger, but can wreak havoc when constantly elevated. Hypnotherapy to address the root cause of your stress and anxiety can change negative thought patterns to more productive thinking, and promote feelings of relaxation and wellness.


Fertility and Childbirth

Hypnosis used in conjunction with IVF is clinically shown to double a woman’s chances of conceiving versus IVF alone.  In fact, even when used alone, hypnosis may help women conceive naturally, without the use of pharmacological intervention.  Throughout pregnancy, hypnosis may help ward off or manage common pregnancy complications such as hypertension, restless legs syndrome, insomnia, and even hormone induced nausea.  Finally, for childbirth hypnoanesthesia (anesthesia induced through hypnosis) has been used successfully for centuries in surgery and in natural childbirth.  In fact, it has been called “the only risk free childbirth anesthesia” by many doctors.  Hypnosis is a proven and effective tool for minimizing the discomfort of childbirth and making birth a pleasant and positive experience for both mother and child.  And even if you elect to have a C-section, hypnosis is clinically shown to prepare the body for surgery and speed post-surgery recovery.

I participate in a sport that takes as much mental ability as physical skill to succeed.  With the help of Ramzy at Nova Hypnosis and Wellness, I made amazing progress with a long-term and deeply ingrained confidence and anxiety issue.  It had plagued me for years, and I’d sought the help of other professionals with little improvement.

I have a few different reasons why I would highly suggestion nova hypnosis and wellness…I went for hypnotherapy for one issue and Monica ended up helping me with two!

I cannot say enough great things about this place.  I came to see Ramzy for a fear of flying that has been quite a burden for me and my family.  I always knew the statistics and but couldn’t stop thinking irrationally when faced with an upcoming flight.  I can definitively say it has helped me tremendously and I just got back from a trip to New Orleans with ease.

“Currently, hypnosis and NLP are where acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage were thirty years ago, underutilized and often misunderstood…  In the near future, therapeutic hypnosis and NLP will be accepted solutions for everything from procrastination to pain.  Hypnosis and NLP will become commonplace household terms as people everywhere will have accepted the reality that they are the CEOs of their lives and of their mental state which controls the emotions, affects the health of the physical body, and directs life outcomes.  People everywhere will possess the intrinsic understanding that whatever their mind can imagine, they can achieve…  Very soon, people will be visiting their local professional hypnotist first before reaching for alternatives such as medication, surgery, or other procedures because “mindset produces destiny” will have become a commonly held belief.”
