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!

Hypnosis is well recognized for its effectiveness in smoking cessation, weight control, eliminating phobias and general habit changing. Interestingly, some of these issues pose the greatest threats to fertility. In fertility work the goal is to attain personal empowerment, which will let nature take its course through inner peace, and the ability to accept, appreciate and embrace life..

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Lindner: Hypnosis is well known as an affective tool for issues like smoking, stress and weight, however this article takes you into the area of fertility and explains how the mind-body can resolve fertility issues when hypnotherapy is utilized.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is in essence a “talking therapy” made famous by Richard Bandler. The name is self explanatory: neuro, the mind; linguistic, talking; and programming.

 

One of the techniques in NLP is known as “anchoring” which utilizes the natural human behaviour of operating from “triggers.” For instance, when you hear a particular song you will instantly recall a certain event, place or person...

Hypnotherapy

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...

Self-hypnosis is an incredibly useful tool. There are many cases where you'll want to teach self-hypnosis to people you've hypnotized. My philosophy is "teach and man to fish..." When you teach self-hypnosis, you allow that person to access the wonderful healing and suggestive powers of hypnosis - on their own...

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...

 

 

Editor´s Note from Cynthia Lindner: In my experiences of helping people with hypnosis I have found that for some people it is very helpful to elicit trance phenomene to convince them that trance did indeed happen. This article gives instructions for testing the hypnotic state when doing self-hypnosis.

Have you ever had one of those days when you played better golf than normal, despite having your mind clearly focussed  somewhere other than golf. Maybe it's when there's something exciting or absorbing going on in your life that has nothing to do with golf. At the other extreme, it could be a time when you're feeling ill or worried about yourself. I'm sure you've heard the expression, "beware the sick golfer" and that's what was said about Y E Yang when he shot a 7-under par 65 on the Friday of the Chevron World Challenge...

Hypnotherapy


by Tim Brunson, PhD

Frequently I hear or read therapists and members of the media loosely using the terms hypnosis and guided imagery. Rarely do their comments reflect any knowledge of the definition, similarities, or differences between the two. This gives the public the impression that they are two separate concepts. This is partially true and partially false...

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...
