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!

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...

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...

Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is well recognized for its effectiveness in smoking cessation, weight control, eliminating phobias and general habit changing. Interestingly, some of these issues pose the greatest threats to fertility. In fertility work the goal is to attain personal empowerment, which will let nature take its course through inner peace, and the ability to accept, appreciate and embrace life..

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Lindner: Hypnosis is well known as an affective tool for issues like smoking, stress and weight, however this article takes you into the area of fertility and explains how the mind-body can resolve fertility issues when hypnotherapy is utilized.

 

Hypnotherapy


 

by Dr. Frank Lea
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is in essence a “talking therapy” made famous by Richard Bandler. The name is self explanatory: neuro, the mind; linguistic, talking; and programming.

 

One of the techniques in NLP is known as “anchoring” which utilizes the natural human behaviour of operating from “triggers.” For instance, when you hear a particular song you will instantly recall a certain event, place or person...

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...
