Both are beneficial to mental and physical health and they both involve changing the mindset in different ways.
Both connect the mind with the body and there is a clear overlap.
Meditation is a technique that uses the conscious mind to deal with issues in a logical and rational way and works on you being present and in the moment. It’s aim is to increase clarity and calmness of the mind.
Hypnosis is a state of focussed attention and uses the subconscious mind to deal with issues in a more creative way using visualisations, and imagery. Thereby, a person becomes more responsive to suggestion.
Essentially why we believe hypnosis works so well on our patients is because our habits are formed so strongly by our subconscious state that we need to speak to that part of you to make the necessary change.
For example, in your conscious state you probably know what foods are best to eat and what foods you should avoid but you still eat unhealthily. Through hypnosis we talk to your subconscious mind and plant new suggestions with food alternatives and positivity around your future well-being that break those habits and old beliefs to forge positive changes.
At Zen Hypnotherapy we use a combination of both.
