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!

Hypnotherapy


by Cindy Locher, C.Ht.

I want to alleviate whatever anxiety you may have in regard to the question, "If I'm hypnotized, how do I awaken myself?" It is important to understand that even though you are hypnotized, you are in control, are aware of your surroundings, what is going on around you, can think clearly and can arouse yourself very easily...

 

 

 

Hypnotherapy

For the majority of the population, it is hard to imagine standing in front of an audience without feeling one's throat go dry, knees become weak and wobbly, and the stomach churn. Whether at work, in school or in a large performance hall, stage fright can take such a firm hold on people, that they can become temporarily immobilized and unable to respond...

Have you ever had a client during the pre-interview try and hold back tears? Some people exhibit a life time of holding back tears. Sometimes they feel as it it isn’t mature to cry, or they should be stronger or it isn’t manly. Why encourage any tears in your pre-interview or in your hypnosis session?

I let my clients know a few facts about tears...

What ideas do you have about the unconscious mind? How much credence do you place in it as a separate and functioning entity? Have you found yourself driven to do something without understanding what's motivating you? Are you stuck repeating patterns of behavior that seem to run on their own accord?...

Sam is a 11-year-old who will be receiving braces and has not been able to sit still in order for plaster impressions to be made of his teeth. He fidgets and is getting more scared with each attempt.

Have you been obsessing over an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend and can't seem to get over the relationship? We all know that breaking up with someone can be deeply painful, make us feel depressed and cause terrible mood swings. In my hypnotherapy practice, it's quite normal to receive frantic phone calls from both men and women, requesting hypnosis to get over a relationship...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Branch: While hypnotherapy can’t erase someone from your mind, it can help you ease away from the excessive focus and obsession.

 

Hypnotherapy

About three years ago, my son Joel had a very bad case of plantar warts on the bottom of his feet.  They were so numerous and painful he was having trouble walking.  He tried everything – Compound W, foot soaks followed by filing the warts, duct tape treatment – you name it.  But nothing was working; those stubborn warts were just not going away...

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...
