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!

In 1842 Braid coined the term "Hypnosis" to describe his use of the "mesmeric trance" in treating psychological and physiological conditions. Braid believed that the hypnotic trance was induced through prolonged attention upon an object of fixation such as a bright moving object to fatigue certain parts of the brain and cause a sleep-like trance in a process known as protracted ocular fixation...

As with most phobias, the fear of public speaking tends to develop in response to past experiences, either due to a single traumatic event or through gradual conditioning/association.  The fear is then compounded by both negative emotions attached to memories of the past and anticipation/expectation of future poor performance, failure and/or ridicule...

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...

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...
