How Hypnosis Works
Hypnosis experts often help people with goals to improve their health. We all know the benefits of being a non-smoker: healthier skin, a longer life-expectancy and significantly reduced risks of a heart attack or lung cancer.
You are likely to have some misgivings about the concept of hypnosis and how it works for smoking cessation. The idea of being placed into a trance by a stranger is rather daunting. Just know that with your therapist you are in a safe and judgement free environment. Professional hypnotherapists don’t aim to make you do things you don’t want to. In fact, evidence suggests that hypnosis does not work unless the subject has existing intentions to achieve something.
So, hypnosis involves amplifying existing desires – like the wish to quit smoking!
