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!

The unconscious mind is very powerful. It is also willing to give us what we ask for, if we ask properly.

Hypnotherapy


 by Linda Gillman

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...

 

Hypnotherapy

 


by Dick Sutphen

The more I focus upon private-session hypnotherapy, the more my passion grows for this work I’ve been doing for over 30 years. Maybe this is because it’s been a long time since I’ve focused to this extent upon individual cases. All over again, I find myself like a child filled with wonder at the power of hypnosis. Working with individuals is also proving to be a powerful opportunity to put into practice new techniques I developed while training therapists for the last two years...

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...
