The Neuroscience Behind Hypnotherapy

I am often asked how hypnosis works and why it can be so successful. People often confuse hypnotherapy with stage hypnosis, which is very different.

Renowned and published neuroscientist Dr Andrew Huberman of Stanford University said, "Rewiring the brain requires focus and deep rest. What's interesting about hypnosis is it brings both those things together at the same moment. So normally you would work really hard on something and later sleep, and thats when the [neuro] plasticity occurs. But hypnosis accellerates that."

As neuroscience develops, and works with hypnosis, the science behind why it is so successful is becoming clearer:

Hypnotherapy can access neuroplasticity for positive change. It works for improving sleep, weight loss, smoking cessation, building self-esteem and confidence, overcoming fears, phobias and dealing with stress and anxiety amongst many other issues that affect people's lives and wellbeing.
