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!

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...

There is so much misinformation out there about hypnosis, we decided that we would set the record straight about exactly what hypnosis is and how it works.

 

You see, many people still think that hypnosis is about putting someone into a weird state, telling them to do something, and then that thing will happen. But hypnosis doesn't work like that. This is so important to understand...

In my hypnosis practice in Atlanta, I have noticed some of my clients really struggle with the idea that there could be anything good behind the urge to smoke. Given all the negatives about smoking, it goes against common sense. And, how could admitting to themselves and me that there are intended benefits to smoking be important in their stopping smoking?...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Branch: Great article explaining how even negative behaviors have positive intentions!

Most people who experience meditation before hypnosis are surprised at how similar they seem. Both disciplines share many almost identical techniques, such as breathing and visualization exercises. For instance the ‘Progressive Relaxation’  technique is frequently used in both disciplines...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Branch: Good explanation of difference & similarities between hypnosis & meditation.

 

Hypnotherapy


by Debbie Friedman, M.S., C.Ht.

Hypnosis is an enjoyable, easy and effective way to change our bad habits into good ones and our negative feelings into positive ones. All of our emotions, beliefs, and habits reside in the subconscious mind and hypnosis provides direct access to the subconscious mind to replace any negatives with powerful, positive beliefs...

What would you say if it was possible to comfortably shift your approach and response to what scares you most? In short order you could easily transition from white knuckle stress to pleasant memories of your carefree childhood anytime you chose. You have remarkable abilities to profoundly change how you view the world and to control the effect it has on you...

If you are skeptical about hypnosis you are right to be so. But let’s take a moment to think about what this means.

 

With my colleague Roger Elliott of Hypnosisdownloads.com I have been using hypnosis to dissolve phobias, crack addictions, lift depressions, stop panic attacks and improve different types of performance for fifteen years. In short, I know hypnosis works. But at the same time, I can understand why some people are skeptical about hypnosis. After all, despite the reams of scientific research attesting to its therapeutic efficacy, traditionally hypnosis has been presented in a rather less than rational way...

Over the last decade we have found that one of the most common uses for self hypnosis is confidence building, so we thought that it would be a good idea to explain just how you might build self confidence using hypnosis.

 

As our starting point, let's take a look at how you build self confidence in the real world. How do you get to the point where doing something scary just isn't scary any more...

When 27-year-old Claire (not her real name) walked into my office for a consultation, she was clearly in bad shape. She had been living most of her life in the vice-like grip of a fear she could not control – the fear of heights – and after a series of failed attempts at traditional treatment (psychotherapy mostly), she was desperate for relief. Hypnotherapy, she hoped, would be the answer...

 

 

Hypnotherapy


by Mary Willix

A nightmare is a warning from the subconscious mind. It might signal a medical condition that needs to be treated, but it may also mean that you are ready to release pent-up negative emotions, negative scripting or trauma. Dream expert Patricia Garfield, author of Creative Dreaming, The Universal Dream Key and other books, tells us that most dreams are negative...

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...
