Meditative hypnosis is one of the more popular classes offered at the Cancer Community Center in South Portland to help people deal with cancer treatments. Learn how it could help you or a loved one.Much like meditation, hypnosis is a state of focused concentration, a safe and gentle process that helps you to become more aware and in tune with your body and mind. Used to reduce stress & support the immune system, it has been shown to be a valuable complement in treating cancer. Techniques include progressive relaxation, guided imagery and instruction in self-hypnosis. The class is held every Thursday from 12:15-1pm free of charge. We spoke with instructor Maggie Clement of Atlantic Hypnotherapy & Wellness Associates in Portland.
