I have always tried to live a healthy life, and for the most part, I’ve been so lucky to have a happy healthy lifestyle. I ate great nutritious food, I exercised daily, and I enjoyed social connections with friends and family. About 3 years ago, I noticed my clothes were getting too tight and my skin was starting to dull, and I was waking up every few hours during the night. I felt lethargic and foggy. I knew I needed to do something but every day I was in a tug-o-war with my subconscious mind. It was as though there were two versions of me. The me who knew I needed to ramp up my healthy habits, and the me who just wanted to give up and get a donut. That’s when I decided to undergo weight loss hypnosis. It only took 3 sessions to put me back on the path to a healthy lifestyle.
How did it work for me?
Hypnosis for weight loss involves a trained hypnotherapist who puts you in a state of relaxation and heightened focus, before using verbal cues and images to suggest behavioral or thought changes.
When I went for my first session, I must admit I was a little skeptical, but the hypnotherapist assured me that hypnotherapy is a very valid part of psychology, and its use has been supported by scientific study.
To my surprise there was no pocket watch swinging or clucking like a chicken, my therapist used specific language and voice tone to place me into a relaxed state. It’s kind of like a trance. I remember feeling very focused while also feeling like I was spacing out. It is very hard to explain, but I do know that I was aware of everything the entire time. While I was in this state, my therapist was able to make suggestions to my unconscious mind that aligned with my ambitions for a healthy lifestyle. It’s like a recalibration to make sure every part of your brain is on the same page.
“Hypnosis is a normal and natural way of knowing your inner self and augmenting it with virtues like self-belief.”

After three sessions I noticed a significant change in my thoughts. I no longer needed to battle my mind to make healthy choices and engage in healthy habits. I found that I didn’t want to eat huge portions, I craved joyful movement, and I was able to enjoy a glass of wine with friends again without crossing the line to excess. It was a true reset, and I found that I was able to recover my vitality and motivation for health once again.
Taking advantage of health products and services is a smart way to support your healthy lifestyle. Hypnosis for weight loss is a useful healthy living tool that was right for me at the time. It may be right for you too.
If you feel like you may need a brain reset to recalibrate your goals, make an appointment with a trained hypnotherapist to see if it may be a good path for you. Good Luck!
