This highly effective self hypsis CD helps you unwind and de-stress. Simply lying back and listening to the CD will help your mind and body let go and relax. The Relaxation and Stress Management CD will help you to: be more relaxed; learn techniques to manage stressful situations more effectively; feel calmer in your daily activities; sleep better; feel more confident; and, feel more in control. When to listen to the CD? Imagine coming home from a hard day, kwing that listening to your CD for half an hour will take you into that blissful, quiet state when you feel so comfortable, calm and relaxed. All the stress from your day seems to melt away leaving you refreshed, calm and confident. How does the Relaxation and Stress Management CD work? The use of hypsis has been around for centuries. It is a natural state similar to daydreaming. In hypsis, you are extremely relaxed, calm and have a heightened sense of awareness and concentration. It is a time when you sink into your subconscious instead of using your conscious mind. Your subconscious is the part of you that: stores all your memories, emotions and patterns of behaviour; is responsible for all bodily functions, e.g., breathing, immune system, blood pressure; and, is an untapped resource of confidence, creativity, natural intelligence and imagination. Self Hypsis is a safe and gentle way of opening the door to the subconscious to bring about positive change to your way of thinking, to your behaviour and to your body. The Relaxation and Stress Management CD uses the natural state of hypsis, deep relaxation and the power of suggestion to enhance your life and wellbeing. The subconscious mind does t kw the difference between reality and imagination (ever had deja vue or a dream that felt as if it was real?). Therefore through Hypsis (similar to guided visualisation) you have the opportunity to train your mind to learn and rehearse new responses to situations and so react accordingly in real life.
Maggie Howell Founder of Natal Hypnotherapy Having learnt self-hypnosis while pregnant, to help with the birth of her first child, Maggie Howell went on to give birth to her eldest son, Joseph, at home in a relaxed and comfortable environment: When Maggie first mentioned that she was going to use self-hypnosis for her first labour, I was sceptical as to whether she would be able to achieve this. During her labour I was happy to be proved wrong. Her ability to remain relaxed, totally in control, yet fully communicative throughout the experience was impressive. Judy Aitkin, NHS midwife. Ria Haydon, NHS midwife agrees: Maggie's demeanour was calm. She appeared to be 'sleeping' during most of her contractions, breathing slightly more deeply as they peaked. She used no pharmacological methods of pain relief and conducted her labour and delivery entirely under self-hypnosis. She appeared to experience no pain and very little discomfort throughout. The midwives were so impressed with the effects that they asked Maggie to talk to local antenatal clinics about her experiences. Maggie then decided to give up a successful career in the events and conference industry and train to be a Clinical Hypnotherapist. The aim then, and now, was to use the power of hypnosis to help women overcome their fear of birth and enable them to be more in control and manage the physical sensations involved in child birth. Maggie developed the Natal Hypnotherapy CDs as a result of her research and hypnotherapy work with individual mothers and antenatal groups. She has since used the techniques herself for the births of her second and third son. Maggie is a Doula (trained birth companion) and currently works with midwives, antenatal groups and hospitals running workshops and classes. She also runs 'effective birth preparation' courses for couples teaching them how to use hypnosis for an instinctive birth as well as training workshops for birth professionals.
