In simplest terms, it is a state of relaxation and can be compared to what it feels like when you are about to fall asleep. At that point, our brains generate beta waves which allows access to our subconscious mind. In general, hypnosis can help explore and address subconscious reasons for behaviors and feelings individuals want to change. During hypnotherapy the causes are uncovered, feelings are released, and positive relearning takes place. As a result of this, individuals experience personal growth and empowerment.
