Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) November 2, 2006
"November is National Stop Smoking Month and our goal is to help 100 people quit smoking during November," says Karen Marshall, Clinical Hypnotherapist and founder of Advanced Hypnosis Center of Tempe.
Hypnosis patients are more than twice as likely to quit smoking. According to a University of Iowa report, in 600 different studies involving 72,000 people across America and Europe, hypnosis was three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.
"If you feel like you have tried everything and just can't seem to quit smoking, perhaps it's time to try hypnosis," says Marshall.
"About 29% of the population smokes, and of those, 70% are looking for a way to quit. Even if someone has tried and failed to quit in the past, with hypnosis, they can finally be free from the addiction," says Karen Marshall.
"Hypnosis helps reprogram the subconscious mind, which is the seat of all behaviors, including habits and addictions. It's completely safe, reliable and quick. Everyone with normal brain functioning can be hypnotized," Marshall adds. "90% of our patients quit smoking with just one or two sessions. The only requirement for getting therapeutic results is that the person has a conscious desire to change, or in other words, is in agreement with the suggestions."
Individual sessions are twice as effective as group sessions. People are individuals and different people smoke for different reasons. All of Advanced Hypnosis Center's programs are one-on-one, private and customized to individual needs.
How does it feel to be hypnotized?
"During hypnosis, you are not asleep, but rather in a state of consciousness somewhere between awake and asleep. You are completely aware of everything that is occurring in the surrounding environment as well as what is happening in the inner mind. You are in control the whole time, and you cannot be made to do anything that would violate your morals or your values. It's fun, relaxing, and an efficient method to make important health and behavior changes," she adds.
