Hypnosis, or hypnotherapy in its clinical use, is quite simply one of the most powerful devices for personal development and positive change. Why? Because it utilises the most powerful part of our creative potential – our imagination.
The British Society of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis states:
In therapy, hypnosis usually involves the person experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist.
What does Hypnotherapy do?
Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling us to overcome irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions. As the body is released from conscious control during the relaxed trance-like state of hypnosis, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate drops and the metabolic rate falls. Similar changes along nervous pathways and hormonal channels enable the sensation of pain to become less acute, and the awareness of unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea or indigestion, to be alleviated. This can also be used to alleviate psychological, emotional and physical disorders.
Hypnotherapy is used to relieve pain in surgery and dentistry and has proved to be of benefit in obstetrics, shorten the delivery stage of labour and reduce the need for painkillers. It can ease the suffering of the disabled and those facing terminal illness, and it has been shown to help people overcome addictions, such as smoking and alcoholism, and to help with bulimia. Phobias of all kinds lend themselves well to hypnotherapy, and anyone suffering from panic attacks or obsessive-compulsive behaviour, and stress-related problems like insomnia, may benefit. Conditions exacerbated by tension, such as irritable bowel syndrome, psoriasis, eczema, and excessive sweating, respond well, and even tinnitus and clicky jaws (tempero-mandibular joint dysfunction) can be treated by this technique. Combine the above with actually finding the root cause of the conflict with META-Medicine® and this speeds up the process dramatically.
