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!

What do you have to lose by searching for your answers in the 90 percent of your mind that you don't normally use?

"So, you can obtain any answer by simply hypnotizing yourself and going up into your Higher Self?" he asked sarcastically...


Editor's Note: I’ve had the great experience of attending some of Dick Sutphen’s Higher Self Seminars and the insights for me were incredible!

I find that the fear of CHANGE is a very common phenomena not with just our clients, but within every human being. It may not be recognizable until we seek to make some change in our habits, or face some transitional period in our lives...




by Michael B. Ellner

The National Mental Health Association lists several reasons as to why people experience negative stress in the form of depression. Some of the more common reasons are loneliness, or seasonal depression in and around the holidays. These can range from the anxiety of family tensions, work issues, financial stress, or getting over a break up...


Editor´s Note from Cynthia Lindner: Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD is more common in parts of the planet that receive reduced amounts of daylight during those shorter winter days. As wintery storm clouds block the sunshine of many climates, some people who are sensitive to the lack of light notice a change in how they feel.Along with the use of light boxes, many people find that using self-hypnosis and other mindful techniques helps to alleviate the "funk" of SAD.




Clinical Hypnotist, Barry Thain, describes treating a 'teddy bear' for blind rage.



by Bryan Knight

Anyone can become enraged once in a while. But if you feel rage boiling within almost constantly, or rage erupts from you frequently, you may have an organic illness.

On the other hand, you might have suffered some terrible injustice as a child.

One major, but largely ignored, category of such abuse is that of boys emotionally, physically or sexually damaged by women. This abuse is not only widespread but may be at the root of much subsequent abuse of women by men...



by Marc Gravelle

Do you know anyone, a friend, family member, co-worker or acquaintance who considers himself or herself a perfectionist? If so, have you ever noticed that they seem somewhat edgy, on guard or perhaps demanding?


We live in a very competitive world and it is important to have high personal and professional standards. However, when a person’s standard or goal is perfection, they may not realize that they are setting themselves up to experience more frustration, anxiety, and disappointment than is necessary. The goal of perfection is unrealistic...




Editor's Note: This is one of my favorite basic inductions. ~Seth-Deborah



by Roseanna Leaton

I woke up this morning feeling tired, almost as if I hadn't slept at all, and wondered why on earth I drank that wine last night! It's now well past mid-day, and I still feel well below par, my head feels heavy, I'm hungry and thirsty...and most of all I'm really annoyed at myself...






Editor´s Note: In this excerpt from a workshop we learn from presenter, Joann Abrahamsen, that different types of hypnotic induction offer hypnotists more ways of helping clients move into a trance state. See three interesting demonstrations of hypnotic induction and discussion of the methods.



by Nancy Smith

Are you interested in past life regression? Many people experiment with this technique to regain memories from past lives. This therapy dates back over 2000 years in ancient India. The ancient belief was by examining your past lives you can make changes in your present reincarnation to improve your karma. The practice came into the Western culture during the Victorian Era...





Editor's Note from Seth-Deborah Roth: Ormond McGill hypnosis demonstrations of oriental methods and techniques including a crystal ball induction, hands frozen in space, the bell gonge method to hypnotize and more. Great footage from the "Dean of American Hypnotists."

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...
