Hypnosis is an option which can be a beneficial stepping-stone towards improved mental and physical health.

In her presentation ‘Health Through Hypnosis’, given at the Rimbey Drop In Centre, Wed., June 4, Megan Layton noted hypnosis can help with quitting smoking, and insomnia, improve relationships and help people stay positive.

Using hypnosis as a tool for quitting smoking is a valuable option, she said.

“It reprograms your mind and cuts the will power out.”

Layton explained the body will do what the mind tells it to do.

“The body is just a robot. It does what the brain tells us.”

Layton said hypnosis works by putting the body into a completely relaxed state. Once the body is completely relaxed, the person undergoing hypnosis is taken down visual stairs.

“Each set of stairs puts you ten times deeper (into hypnosis) than the last,” she said.

As much as hypnosis can have a positive effect on a person, it will not work if the person does not want to be hypnotized, she said.

“You have to want it to happen. You are in control.”

Layton said there are myths about hypnosis that people can be hypnotized against their will, but this does not happen.

However, if someone wants to think positive thoughts and lead a more productive, happy lifestyle they might want to consider hypnosis as a way to instill these thoughts in their mind.
