Smoking - Reading, PA: Just The Facts About Hypnosis
What Is Hypnosis?
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not like sleep. You are actually fully conscious during hypnosis. It is a naturally occurring state of consciousness like daydreaming or meditation.
Hypnosis is defined as "a state of selective mental focus" which means your mind is highly focused inward. This allows you to accept positive suggestions more easily so you can change your old, bad habits.
Does Hypnosis Work?
In a study at Texas A&M University 81% of hypnosis patients reported that they had stopped smoking, and 48% reported abstinence at 12 months after treatment.
A study reported in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship showed that after two years patients that quit with hypnosis were twice as likely to remain smoke-free than those who quit on their own.
A project at the University of Iowa combined the results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as the nicotine patch and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.
Is Hypnosis Safe?
Hypnosis is safe and natural. It has been accepted by the American Medical Association (AMA) since 1958.
How Much Does Hypnosis Cost?
You can quit smoking for less than the cost of a dozen cartons of cigarettes (probably much less). Think about how much you smoke in a week. How many weeks would it take you to make your money back once you stopped smoking? Don't you think you're worth it?
