Hypnosis is making a comeback as research demonstrates its effectiveness in relieving anxiety, resolving traumatic memories, and reducing chronic pain. Find out why hypnosis is an effective tool for influencing subcortical areas of the brain, and learn the art of communicating with the subconscious using metaphor, multisensory language, and techniques that engage your client’s curiosity and imagination. You may even experience your own transformative trance with live demonstrations and experiential activities.
