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!

Editor's Note: I used to work in L&D as a Nurse Anesthetist and until I studied hypnosis, I never would have believed that hypnosis works. I knew that Lamaze didn't work. Hypnosis does!

The doctor on the phone asked if I could cure stammers. I told her the truth. I didn’t know. No one had ever asked me to treat a stammer. I understood there was lots of literature suggesting stammers responded very well to hypnotherapy but admitted I was wary of the claims...

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.

Do you want it? Can you see it? Can you feel it? Imagine that you can have it. It is that simple. It all starts in the mind. "What a man can conceive and believe he can achieve."

 

Think about it. Everything starts with a thought. "As a man thinks so is he." You become what you think about. What you imagine and think about expands in your life. Think about what you want, not what you don't want...

You already know that suggestion is powerful, but most people don't know the full extent of its influence. This includes autosuggestion in which you make suggestions or affirmations to yourself, or it can be about others making suggestions to you...

Many sports stars use hypnosis, especially when they need to get out of a slump. But waiting until you are in a slump may not be the best choice. More than a few medalists in both Olympic Games have successfully used sports hypnosis to keep their focus and attention on the prize...

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...
