Trick or treat night is fun for both kids and parents. There is only one night of the year that parents allow their children to go out at night and ring the doorbells at stranger’s houses. Kids enjoy it because they get to dress up collect lots of candy, while parents love to see their kids dolled up in their costumes and may even look forward to sneaking a handful or two of the candy that their children collect.

The beauty of raising children in this day and age are the various options and choices one has surrounding behavioral or heath issues. No longer is a pill always the fix, hypnotherapy for children and adolescents is another choice to explore to see if it is the right type of therapy for your family. The International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association defines hypnosis as “an education communication process to a person’s mind that allows his/her conscious and subconscious mind to receive the same message. The process produces an altered state of consciousness through mental and physical relaxation. The critical faculty of the mind is bypassed and the subconscious openly receives the communication”.
