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!

When doing a telephone session, it is necessary to alter your technique a bit and as part of that change, I have found that a series of short, relaxing visualizations each with a separate countdown is extremely effective.

Here are some samples of visualizations that I have used in my recordings and have found very effective...

 

Hypnotherapy

I am a big fan of using yoga type breathing techniques for hypnotic deepening work. In my experience a patient can really 'feel' a physical relaxation sensation from these techniques, allowing them to become very deeply relaxed. These very real physical sensations of relaxation can also help increase a subjects' faith in the session, allowing their mind to more open to the challenges of change. Here is an example of a yoga style breathing exercise used as a deepener...

 

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...

Hypnotherapy

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...

 

Hypnotherapy

An ideomotor signal is way to communicate non-verbally.

Ideomotor techniques are powerful for a number of reasons. Since the unconscious mind functions on more of a metaphorical level, a level dealing with imagery and imagination rather than logic, methods that use the body and emotions rather than our verbal skills are highly effective in reaching that part the mind...

Breast cancer survivors can reduce the intensity and frequency of hot flashes by up to 68% with hypnosis. [Elkins, 2007 and 2008].

Especially when they use cooling imagery, according to a more recent study in which researchers asked such women to choose specific cooling imagery to be combined with their hypnosis session. Some of the chosen images were of places the women had actually been to, others were of a more general nature...

What do you have to lose by searching for your answers in the 90 percent of your mind that you don't normally use?

"So, you can obtain any answer by simply hypnotizing yourself and going up into your Higher Self?" he asked sarcastically...

 

Editor's Note: I’ve had the great experience of attending some of Dick Sutphen’s Higher Self Seminars and the insights for me were incredible!

I find that the fear of CHANGE is a very common phenomena not with just our clients, but within every human being. It may not be recognizable until we seek to make some change in our habits, or face some transitional period in our lives...

Marie, a friend of mine, wanted help with her anger.
 
I was just getting started as a hypnotherapist – I had received my certification but had not yet begun my business. I felt I needed practice, so I agreed to work with her.

As we talked, Marie told me how she would sometimes fly into rages, especially with men, her husband in particular...

 

Hypnotherapy


by Keith Livingston

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...

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...
