Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. Your heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises, breath quickens, and your senses become sharper. These physical changes increase your strength and stamina, speed your reaction time, and enhance your focus.
When stress is within your comfort zone, it can help you to stay focused, energetic, and alert. Stress can help you rise to meet challenges. But outside of your comfort zone, stress stops being helpful and can start causing major damage to your mind and body. When you repeatedly experience stress in your daily life, it can lead to serious health problems.
Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body. It can shut down your immune system, upset your digestive and reproductive systems, raise blood pressure, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, speed up the aging process and leave you vulnerable to many mental and physical health problems.

Take a Look at These Studies...
Hypnosis has Many Benefits for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Sufferers
Hypnosis is found to be beneficial in treating PTSD for two reasons. One, the symptoms of PTSD are similar to the phenomena experienced under hypnosis. And two, hypnosis has been shown to reduce symptoms of PTSD. Studies have shown that people who have PTSD are highly hypnotizable. Hypnosis allows people to access memories of the event under controlled circumstances. Then, these memories can be restructured so as to prevent future symptoms of PTSD. People with PTSD can be taught to use self-hypnosis so if a re-experiencing of symptoms occur, they can reduce the effects.
Spiegel & Cardena, 1990
Hypnosis Reduces Stress in Pregnancy
Women who are pregnant are often under a great deal of stress. They are undergoing physical, psychological, and hormonal changes in their body. Stress also occurs from fear and anxiety about the health and delivery of the baby. They are also undergoing changes in social, occupational, and financial areas. An alternative therapy such as hypnosis can greatly reduce the amount of stress pregnant women experience and thus reduce physiological symptoms of stress.

Hypnosis Improves Surgical Outcomes
When preoperative hypnosis was used on patients before undergoing maxillofacial surgery they were able to use suggestion to reduce stress and anxiety. This resulted in reduced bleeding, swelling, and use of medication during and after the surgery. This study shows that reducing stress before surgery can have a profound effect on recovery after the surgery.
Enqvist, Von Konow, and Bystedt (2006)
Extensive multidisciplinary studies have presented unequivocal evidence that our psychological responses to stress and our perceptions of stress to a considerable extent affect our susceptibility to disease. In active relationship, the immune, neuroendocrine, and nervous systems respond to the brain and psyche. Virtually all illnesses, from the flu to cancer, are influenced for good or bad by our thoughts and feelings.
R. Lloyd, 1990 Healing Brain: A Scientific Reader
Hypnosis is a profoundly effective therapeutic tool – which is never dangerous to you. All of the suggestions are your own, and the healing you receive comes from within. Hypnotherapy can promote relaxation of both mind and body and can change behavior patterns that tend to aggravate stress.
