.... TRY HYPNOSIS
Certified iClinical Hypnotherapist
Hypnotherapy induces a meditative trance state, similar to the feeling you have just before falling asleep, a peaceful state of mind similar to deep meditation, whereby you are still conscious and aware of your
surroundings, but the excessive chatter of the conscious mind is at rest, thus the subconscious mind is extremely receptive to the power of suggestion & reinforcement of your goals.
If you have ever daydreamed, or have felt 'Mesmerized' or 'entranced' by listening to or playing music, staring at a log fire, or even just driving on the highway without consciously thinking about it, then you have already been hypnotized many times before.
At West Toronto Wellness Centre we are dedicated to offering our clients the cutting edge health and wellness services and treatments for you to achieve optimal health naturally. We have been providing natural wellness and health services in West Toronto for many years.
