Hypnosis helps you break the cycle of addiction
Addiction is a physical and/or emotional dependence on something, with the belief you cannot physically or mentally function without it. Alcoholism and drug abuse are two of the most common addictions, but there are also many others.
A habit becomes an addiction when you can’t stop it without experiencing symptoms of withdrawal such as irritability and anxiety. You may feel physical discomfort to getting sick such as headaches and pains. You may obsess about the behavior or substance and feel a constant and intense desire to return to the behavior or substance.
Physical addiction is only a piece of the overall problem
Physical addiction is a contributing factor but it is only part of the problem. The underlying emotional reasons for an addiction must be addressed. The emotional and usually spiritual aspects are the most important, long-lasting and usually most un-addressed.
People become addicted for a reason. They often turn to a drug to relax, to escape from an unpleasant reality, to relieve pain, to energize themselves, give themselves a little treat at the end of the day, to bond with friends or to assert their individuality. The purpose underlying the addiction is not bad — everyone needs a balance of work and relaxation. We all enjoy treats from time to time. Eventually this method of “taking care of yourself” becomes unhealthy. By understanding the underlying and often hidden reasons for the behavior, we are able to replace old habits with new and healthier ways to relax.
Hypnosis is safe, reliable and has a higher success rate than using prescription drugs to counter-act the original problem.
We will work with the underlying feelings and emotions that drive addiction, desire and dependence. Through hypnosis we will make the urges disappear, lessen or be replaced with a desire for a healthier alternative.
