I am sometimes asked, can hypnosis be used for weight management? The answer is yes! Hypnotherapy has also been used by more than half a million people in the US and around the world in recent years, with the aim of helping them make healthier choices and lose pounds.
Hypnosis is a great option for anyone looking for a gentle way to lose weight and make healthy eating a habit. Many of the people have tried many different methods, lost weight and regained it or simply failed to lose altogether. Some people may actually need to gain weight and have not been able to do so by other approaches, or have eating disorders, which is why hypnotherapy generally looks at this topic as weight control.
During sessions, I will help you develop a new positive relationship with food and exercise. Creating healthy habits is the key to manage weight problems effectively. In hypnotherapy, aversion techniques are not used for this topic, as it can cause even bigger problems but rather focusing on habits.
Hypnosis is about changing the mind and helping you overcome cravings. In addition, there is the aspect of meditation that helps to reduce stress and increase mindfulness, which in turn can help in weight management.
With the help of hypnosis you will learn how to visualise success. Hypnosis can help you create new associations that allow long-term balance. If you ever start to gain weight (or lose it), you will have the ability to take control and get back on track by using self-hypnosis.
If you are trying to control your size but you may not seem to get over a plateau, hypnosis can help you overcome that. If you want more motivation, support and guidance, you can approach your weight goals with hypnosis.
Respectable institutions such as the Mayo Clinic agree that while hypnosis can help with weight loss, other elements must be in place to achieve results. Overall, the study found that people can benefit greatly from hypnosis when used in conjunction with traditional weight control strategies, especially when used continuously. The good news is that hypnotherapy can help with all of that and make the experience a pleasurable one.
