Hypnosis:

Meet with Amanda Grigsby, Clinically Certified Hypnotherapist, and experience Hypnotherapy at its finest! Hypnosis, or hypnotherapy, is a trance-like state that causes individuals to have heightened concentration and focus. This state is natural and normal, and most people go in and out of a hypnotic state every day, especially just before sleep. A hypnotherapist is a trained and credentialed mental health practitioner with a certification in hypnotherapy. They can induce the hypnotic state by use of mental images, verbal repetition, and progressive relaxation.

During hypnosis, patients generally feel relaxed and calm, and they may be more open to suggestion. Hypnosis is often used to help clients cope with pain or anxiety, or to gain a better sense of control over an undesired behavior.

Though many individuals believe hypnosis puts patients to sleep, they actually remain fully awake during a session.

Hypnosis has been proven to help with:
• Weight loss
• Smoking cessation
• Treatment of phobias or fears
• Building self confidence and self esteem
• Overcoming past trauma
• General stress reduction
• Pain management 
• Habit control
And so much more!


Individual sessions can be offered at select locations such as Walking on Sunshine Spa and Shoppe, or by personal appointment. We do Home Visits! Enjoy Hypnosis from the comfort of your home (30 mile radius) Sessions are typically $100 with additional fees for home visits due to travel expenses.

Amanda is a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and also an Independently Certified licensed in the state of Kentucky and Nationally certified. She is co-owner of Grigsby Outdoor Adventures and has over 20 years experience working in the mental health field! Contact us today to book your appointment for hypnotherapy.
