The word “hypnosis” is derived from the Greek word hypnos, or “sleep.”
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapists utilize techniques that induce deep levels of relaxation, or trance state, otherwise known as the healing state.
A person in a deeply focused state is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but this does not mean that a hypnotist can control the person’s mind and free will. On the contrary, hypnosis can actually teach people how to master their own states of awareness. By doing so they can affect their own bodily functions and psychological responses.
Actually, hypnosis can be instrumental in helping people master and guide their own levels of awareness, and facilitate improved psychological and mind/body responses. A quiet mind is a powerful mind.
Let Sacramento Hypnotherapy help you achieve that quiet powerful mind.
Maude Schellhous founded Sacramento Hypnotherapy following completion of training as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHT) in 1995. She then achieved her Certificate of Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in 1999, and has since helped thousands of people reach their goals and often achieve what they did not think was possible.
It is Maude’s belief that discovering inner wisdom holds a path to many different areas of our subconscious where we can unlock blockages that can hold us back mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. She is passionate in her work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, and is most proud when her clients achieve their goals. In 2013 Maude founded California School of Hypnotherapy to teach others how to facilitate healing and empowerment through this beautiful work.
