Key Highlights

  • What is hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic practice that uses guided hypnosis to help a client reach a transcendent-like state of focus, concentration, diminished peripheral awareness, and heightened suggestability.
  • Sam explains how hypnotherapy and sensory-based focus can be used in therapeutic processes to reconstruct our internal experience.
  • He notes the similarities and differences between hypnotherapy, meditation, and mindfulness.
  • The world is so stimulating that many of us have realized we’re not as relaxed as we think we are. That’s why people feel loopy and out of it after their first hypnotherapy session - it’s because they’re actually relaxed and they’ve forgotten what that feels like. Once you build that awareness, you can begin cultivating more of that in your life.
  • Sam describes how creating deep change isn’t harder than creating simple change… it just requires a different set of skills.
  • Resilience is one of the best skills you can develop to create change, maintain momentum, and accomplish your goals.
  • People are using hypnotherapy to change the gut microbiome, improve gut health, and even heal IBS. How? Does hypnotherapy work just as well as the FODMAP diet? Tune in to find out!
  • Lastly, Sam highlights the benefits of hypnotherapy in treating chronic pain.
