Is hypnotherapy really something that can help people overcome issues that seem to hold them, or is it something that should be left on the stage. What is the history of hypnotherapy and how is it relevant for us today.
So how can hypnotherapy help you with your problem?
People can find themselves looking for hypnosis therapy for a number of reasons. Perhaps you have a bad habit such as smoking that you are trying to break. Or maybe you want to loose weight, tried all the diets and nothing has helped.
Another reason may be because of a relationship breakdown, or jealousy in a relationship.
All these are common reasons as to why someone may be looking for a hypnotherapist to help them with their everyday issues.
Hypnotherapy is not a new concept, infact; it has been around since the beginning of time. Some animals put themselves in a trance like state when they go into hibernation and are able to go without nourishment for long periods of time.
Hypnotherapy became more understood by physicians around the 19th century.
It is true to say that not everyone can be hypnotised. Research shows that people with the ability to perceive what is going on around them and recognise changes in their own awareness may block themselves from being helped through therapy.
Others can find that they are easily hypnotised. This is because they are more able to enter a trance like state and respond better to suggestions through their subconciousness.
Hypnotherapy has also been tested along with modern medicines to analyse people’s different responses to treatment.
On a number of occasions, groups of people who are receiving the same medical treatment have been separated and hypnosis therapy has been given to one section of the group to see what affects may occur.
More often than not, those who received hypnosis therapy felt less pain and anxiety and made a speedier recovery, which in turn, saved costs on medical treatment.
It is unfortunate that most people’s first introduction to hypnotherapy is stage hypnosis which gives the idea that hypnotherapy is where someone puts you under a spell and controls your movements causing you to perform in front of an audience some kind of bizarre act.
This is not what hypnotherapy is all about.
When a person looks to a hypnotherapist to help them with their problem, although they will put in a very relaxed state, they are always going to be aware of what is happening around them.
Hypnotherapy has helped lots of people with various different conditions, psychological as well as having a positive effect on their behaviour and has been effectively demonstrated through medical research.
Hypnosis has helped people overcome common and uncommon issues that people are faced with in their everyday lives, offering a release from pressures and conditions that seem to have a hold over them either by bad habits such as smoking or psychological issues such as jealousy.
Whatever the issue is that you may be facing, hypnosis can have a positive effect and help you overcome these issues.
