Hypnosis & The City

Experience hypnotic relaxation and learn how to conquer and release stress with hypnosis in Portland this fall!

Stress acumulated through the course of our life affects our behaviors, damages our emotional well being, and profoundly affects our health. Numerous mental, emotional and physical disorders are linked to stress, including depression, anxiety, hypertension, strokes and heart attacks, immune system disorders, increased susceptibility to infections and a host of viral infections ranging from the common cold to herpes, AIDS, cancer and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. In addition, stress can affect the skin, the gastrointestinal system, contribute to hair loss, insomnia and degenerative disorders like Parkinson’s disease.

Reducing stress levels enables us to lower blood pressure, relax tense muscles, reduce inflammation in the body, soothe aches and pains, improve digestive health and boost our immune system.

Experience Hypnotic Relaxation

Functional MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) studies of the brain before, during and after hypnosis demonstrate the physiological changes naturally occuring in the body during hypnosis.

The hypnotic state is characterized by profound physical, mental and emotional relaxation. As our musles, tissues, cells and nerves relax, blood vessels loosen. Our blood is able to flow more fluidly and effortlessly through our entire body, carrying vital oxygen to our brain and essential nutrients to our vital organs. We experience a boost of physical rejuvenation, as our body is able to return doing what it was engineered to do: restore itself.

Electroencephalogram (EEG) studies of the brain demonstrate chemical and hormonal changes taking place in that state.

According to neuroscientists, the deep, attentive, physical, mental and emotional relaxation experienced during hypnosis, as we slow our brain wave cycles, produces significant increases in endorphin levels (our body’s natural opiate system), dopamine and norepinephrine levels (enhancing focus and attention), producing higher levels of mental clarity, better brain function and superior memory capabilities.

Release Stress with Hypnosis

The significant increase in endorphin levels partly explains why we experience considerable improvement in our feelings of well being, pleasure and good mood when we emerge from hypnosis. Cortisol (the steroid hormone produced by the brain under stress, tension, fear, anxiety) also drops down significantly.

This creates an ideal state for synthetic thought and creativity, functions of the right brain hemisphere, placing us in an optimal condition to learn new information, remember facts and data, memorize languages, analyze complex situations, all of which in a state of profound, restorative calm.

The resulting feelings of enhanced mental clarity, focus, attention and measurably improved mood, well being and pleasure have been shown to last for hours and even days after each session, making it possible to experience bliss in the midst of day-to-day chaos.

Discover the deep level of mind, body and soul relaxation characteristic of the state of hypnosis. Learn how to anchor and replicate this state of serenity and well being in your day-to-day life, whenever and wherever you need.

Treat yourself to the luxurious, life-enhancing gift of peace of mind!
