What is Hypnotherapy?
"A state of focused attention and receptivity. Hypnosis at first brings on a deeply relaxed and calm state, both physically and psychologically. You will notice such physiological signs as slowed respiration, a low heart rate, warm and dry hands, and relaxed muscles. Psychologically, you may feel calm, peaceful, and may have an 'empty' mind, relatively free of negative of distracting thoughts".
