HYPNOTHERAPY

What is Hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is an alternative health therapy that guides subjects into a deep state of relaxation, creating a state of heightened suggestibility in which positive images and suggestions can be introduced and accepted. Hypnosis is a deep trance state used in hypnotherapy to unlock the capacity of the unconscious mind to bring about healing results.  A professional hypnotherapist does this by quieting the conscious mind, steering the individual into relaxation, and introducing the subject to healing images, thoughts and feelings. While hypnotherapy healing is commonly used to assist individuals to rid themselves of bad habits such as smoking and overeating, many hypnotherapists treat a variety of symptoms and conditions such as migraines, high blood pressure, sleep and sexual disorders, phobias, depression and others conditions.  Therapists can also use hypnosis in a spiritual realm seeking past life regression experiences for their clients.   Some have referred to hypnotherapy as the oldest form of psychotherapy.  The oldest written record of hypnotherapy practice was said to be in ancient Egypt before 3000 BC.  Both the Greeks and Romans practiced various forms of hypnotherapy to induce a good night’s sleep and even the Bible makes reference to what would be considered hypnotherapy healing today. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, hypnotherapy treatment continued to expand, eventually embraced by mainstream science.  By the late 18th century, the discovery of how to place a patient into a deep trance using relaxing and calming techniques, referred to as ‘somnambulism’, is a term still used today in the alternative health therapies of the hypnotherapist community.     In the teachings of the Tarot, it has long been recognized that making suggestions to the subconscious held great power. Many believe this remains true for today’s hypnotherapy medicine where the hypnotherapist can make suggestions to the subconscious through hypnosis with therapeutic results. The British Psychological Society stated in 2001, “Enough studies have now accumulated to suggest that the inclusion of hypnotic procedures maybe beneficial in the management and treatment of a wide range of conditions and problems encountered in the practice of medicine, psychiatry and psychotherapy.”   Alternative Health Therapies – Hypnotherapy healing can help you reach your goals!

Over the last decade we have found that one of the most common uses for self hypnosis is confidence building, so we thought that it would be a good idea to explain just how you might build self confidence using hypnosis.

 

As our starting point, let's take a look at how you build self confidence in the real world. How do you get to the point where doing something scary just isn't scary any more...

Hypnotherapy


by Irish Author Cathal O'Briain

When giving birth, it is possible to change the sensation of pain to pressure. The more relaxed a mother-to-be is, the easier, faster, and less complicated labour and birth becomes. Some mothers become so relaxed, they find it almost impossible to identify when exactly they are having a contraction. Through self-hypnosis they turn pain into pressure. When the mother's body is this relaxed, the baby just flows out, and sometimes after just a few pushes...

Society makes us expect to grow older. I’m a grandmother, mother of two lovely daughters and two even lovelier grandchildren...

 

Editor´s Note: Women and men are willing to endure harsh treatments and invasive procedures to maintain a youthful look, and skin care is a billion dollar industry. I have personally met many skilled hypnotherapists who have used hypnotic suggestion to slow or stop the signs of aging. Ms. Packer is one of a few willing to share the secrets about using hypnosis to stay young.

Many people use the terms "stress" and "anxiety" interchangeably, but they are actually two separate conditions. Stress is a response to a stimulus, either internal or external. You may feel stress because you are frustrated with something (like waiting in line behind a slow person) or when you are worried that you won't meet expectations (such as missing a deadline)...

I am a big fan of using yoga type breathing techniques for hypnotic deepening work. In my experience a patient can really 'feel' a physical relaxation sensation from these techniques, allowing them to become very deeply relaxed. These very real physical sensations of relaxation can also help increase a subjects' faith in the session, allowing their mind to more open to the challenges of change. Here is an example of a yoga style breathing exercise used as a deepener...

Hypnotherapy


by Loretta Peters Martin

Hypnosis is a natural state of physical relaxation and mental focus during which our conscious mind is bypassed so that our subconscious can receive positive suggestions to help us achieve our goals. The subconscious mind is the part of our brain that controls 80% of how we think, feel and behave. When we are in hypnosis, our subconscious minds are more open to positive, empowering suggestions...

Testing The Hypnotic Trance: Part 1

by Michael Robinson, MSN, RN-BC
The only purpose of testing is to satisfy yourself as to the depth of self-hypnosis that you have reached. Some people never use tests because they easily learn to recognize the "feeling" of hypnosis and do not question or worry about depth. If you are one of those fortunate people and already realize that you have achieved self-hypnosis, do not waste time on tests. Use this time to program your nervous system with positive ideas and mental pictures. If you are still having trouble recognizing the "feeling" of hypnosis, the tests will prove to you that you are hypnotizing yourself...
