RELIEF FROM HARMFUL STRESS
Hypnotherapy can produce a wonderful state of relaxation. Like a mini vacation, it can provide welcome relief from accumulated stress.
Stress is a term that refers to your body's way of responding to any kind of challenge or demand. This can happen as a result of good or bad experiences. When you are faced with a challenging situation, your body activates resources (chemicals released into the blood) to help you. These chemicals can trigger a faster heart rate, alertness, and muscles fully prepared for action. Which is good if you’re in physical danger. A little bit of stress can also be good in short term situations like public speaking, sports, or the performing arts where you can use the energy and alertness to improve your performance. But the stress response can work against you if it continues over a longer period of time, and if there is no natural direct physical or emotional outlet to release it. While short term stress can have beneficial effects, long term chronic stress can be very harmful.
Common signs of harmful stress are: high blood pressure, rapid breathing, slowed digestive system, increased heart rate, weakened immune system, tense muscles, sleeplessness. As you can see, these are things that you wouldn’t want to accept as part of your normal physical state.
Stress usually develops as a result of more than one factor, and our stress reduction sessions will help you on many fronts.
Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Skill Building will put you in the drivers seat. By focusing on what you want rather than on what you don't want, you can achieve more than you thought possible. And you'll enjoy the adventure.
