BENEFITS OF HYPNOSIS
Hypnosis is used to influence the subconscious mind to accept new programming for positive life changes. You will only accept messages that are compatible with your beliefs. If you are not comfortable with a suggestion being made you can open your eyes and not accept the message.
It is used to change and transform old behaviors, patterns, beliefs, and thoughts in order to manifest new ideas to meet your desires and goals for being a healthier and happier person. Hypnosis gives you and your hypnotherapist the opportunity to work as a team to assist you in reaching your greatest goals to enhance your life.
Since 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has recommended hypnotherapy as a treatment for chronic pain.
Comparing Long Lasting Effects of Hypnosis, Behavior Therapy and Psychology
Since 1958 The American Medical Association (AMA) has officially recognized hypnosis as a valuable and beneficial treatment as applied and used. In “Psychotherapy” magazine (Volume 7, Number 1), various types of techniques were listed and profiled in a review of relevant literature by Alfred A. Barrios, PhD. The techniques that proved to generate the greatest success in providing long lasting change were the following that is listed in order of success rate:
Hypnosis — 93% recovery after 6 sessions
(approx. 1 1/2 months @ 1 session per week).
Behavior Therapy — 72% after 22 sessions
(approx. 6 months @ 1 session per week).
Psychotherapy — 38% recovery after 600 sessions
(approx. 11 1/2 yrs @ 1 session per week).
One of the main benefits of hypnosis is that when you are in a hypnotic state brain wave frequencies slow down. You concentrate or focus your awareness and you are actually much more aware than usual.
The unconscious, or subconscious can then be reprogrammed so it lets go of old patterns, habits, beliefs and feelings that no longer serve you. They can be replaced with suggestions that are positive and affirming. The super-conscious mind can open you to greater self-awareness and you become more receptive to change.
A common myth is that you only have to be hypnotized once to make permanent changes. Sometimes this is true, but for lasting positive changes hypnosis suggestions need to be repeated several times until your mind accepts the new programming.Research even suggests that hypnosis may be able to make your body look younger by reprogramming new cells and instructing them to find the healthiest blueprint to develop.
Many of the programs that enhance intelligence or education-related skills involve the use of hypnosis speed reading and memorization improvement are two examples. Individuals simply seeking to better themselves in their professional careers may seek the services of a hypnotist; the same holds true of artists of all kinds actors, musicians, writers.Hypnotherapy has become more and more widely accepted because it does not involve potentially habit-forming drugs, has no serious side-effects and is less expensive than other types of treatment.
