Most people are aware of the mind-body connection…how your mental processes can affect your physical state. If you feel frightened, your heart races and getting embarrassed can cause you to blush. Think of something happy, and you are likely to smile. Meditating may lower your blood pressure.
Studies show our coping mechanisms and ways we handle stress directly correlate to how we deal with serious illnesses, including cancer. Chronic stress affects the body in a negative way. Over long periods of time, long-term stress can make us more susceptible to diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases, and some infections.
By using our innate mind-body connection in a positive way, by keeping our minds and bodies in shape with exercise and nutrition, we can keep stress levels lower. The better we are able to cope by staying calm and reducing psychological stress, we will reduce physical stress, along with the chance of developing a disease.
The mind and body are intricately interconnected and that state of mind can directly influence the working of the immune system, and vice versa. Extreme and prolonged anger, anxiety and the stress of depression all weaken the immune system, just as healthy sleep, optimism and happiness can strengthen it.
If your mind can affect the way your body functions, and hypnosis can affect the way your mind functions, then it stands to reason that hypnosis can ultimately affect your body’s responses. Hypnosis and Life Coaching will help you to reduce stress, heal negative emotions, develop coping skills, reframe thoughts, let go of old, antiquated thoughts, keep more balanced and ultimately enjoy a better quality of life.
We offer hypnosis sessions and life coaching sessions in person or via Zoom video chat.
