Hypnosis is a state of relaxed concentration. Anyone can enter such a state naturally, and we all experience hypnosis regularly as when absorbed in a book or movie to the extent that we become unaware of our immediate surroundings. Hypnosis enables people to bypass their conscious critical mind and access their subconscious to work at releasing old fears, unwanted habits, emotional blocks, and limiting beliefs. Although the subconscious is accessed, hypnosis is not a sleep state. In fact, brain-wave pattern studies of people in hypnosis show that they are in an alert state of ‘wakefulness.’
Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage is essentially a gentle massage administered while the client is in yoga positions. Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a comprehensive, integrative psychotherapy approach. It contains elements of many effective psychotherapies in structured protocols that are designed to maximize treatment effects. These include psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, experiential, and body-centered therapies. EMDR psychotherapy is an information processing therapy and uses an eight phase approach to address the experiential contributors of a wide range of pathologies. It attends to the past experiences that have set the groundwork for pathology, the current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs and sensations, and the positive experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental health. EMDR therapy is recognized as an effective form of trauma treatment in numerous practice guidelines worldwide. In the US, this includes organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and Department of Defense. More than twenty randomized studies support the effectiveness of the therapy in the treatment of PTSD.
