At the End of Your Diet Rope? Try Hypnosis!

Do you feel you have tried EVERYTHING to lose weight but still seem to be over weight? BELIEVE me you are not alone! One-third of adults in America are obese (or what they call obese) Maybe it’s time to look at Hypnosis?

Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight Than 90% of Others and Kept it Off. Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self monitoring, or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not receiving hypnosis and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended.

You may have heard on one of you local radio stations that a hypnotist was coming to your town and you can lose weight and/or quit smoking. All for a bargain price of $50-$100. But does it work? My answer to that is, sometimes. That is what we call “one shot” hypnosis. The hypnotist may get to you to hate sweets, or chips or whatever your “vice” may be. But as most of you know, there’s more to why you or your loved one is obese. It may be lack of motivation, boredom, death (grieving/bereavement), and much more. So how do you think you can solve the weight problem with ONE session? Like I said it works for some, but not for most.

So try clinical hypnosis, with one-on-one sessions. We have found that our clients see a great success with this approach. But if you want to “try” hypnosis, most clinics offer free screenings where you can see for yourself.

It’s painless and side-effect free, so why not give it a try?

Hypnosis can more than double the effects of traditional weight loss approaches.

An analysis of five weight loss studies reported in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 showed that the “… weight loss reported in the five studies indicates that hypnosis can more than double the effects” of traditional weight loss approaches. University of Connecticut, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 (Vol. 64, No. 3, pgs 517-519).
