The human mind has a remarkable capacity to control the body when we concentrate. Hypnotherapy is a treatment that makes use of relaxation techniques to induce suggestions upon the unconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy used to create subconscious change in a patient in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviors or feelings. Hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. The person’s attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention — with the help of a trained therapist — on specific thoughts or tasks.
Trance states have been a part of ancient ceremonies and tribal cultures for thousands of years. In 18th century Europe an Austrian doctor named Franz Anton Mesmer introduced the first sizable body of evidence in support of hypnotherapy. At the time he was accused of fraud by the medical community, but we still have the word ‘mesmerized’ from his last name.
It wasn’t until the 1950s when a physician named Milton H. Erickson incorporated hypnosis into his techniques that it was recognized by the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association. Although previous tests by the British Medical Association had suggested it was effective for easing intense pain and bad nerves.
How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
Hypnotherapy is usually considered an aid to psychotherapy (counseling or therapy), because the hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from their conscious minds. In addition, hypnosis enables people to perceive some things differently, such as blocking an awareness of pain.
The hypnotic state may be brought about by a trained hypnotherapist using one of many techniques. The patient enters a state in which they feel awake yet completely relaxed. The heart rate and blood pressure may lower and there could be a difference in brain wave activity. In this dissociated state the conscious mind releases and the subconscious mind moves forward. When a person is hypnotized it may be easier for them to recall a blocked memory or otherwise get to the root of a problem. By re framing the personal awareness it is easier to change a stubborn perspective that blocks the healing process.
What Are the Benefits of Hypnotherapy?
The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open to discussion and suggestion. It can improve the success of other treatments for many conditions, including:
- Phobias, fears, and anxiety
- Sleep disorders
- Post-trauma anxiety
- Grief and loss
- Drug/Alcohal addiction
Can Hypnotherapy Cure Addiction?
Hypnotherapists have been helping their clients stop drinking, smoking and using drugs for years with great success. Until recently, very little was known about how the brain could just turn off the desire for alcohol or drugs, and how the subconscious mind could stop the addictive urges when a person has been hypnotized. Hypnotherapists use techniques that are specifically created to change the triggers in the brain, stop self-sabotage issues, release trauma and redirect the neural networks in the brain. When Ms Nitu started applying these same processes to her clients who needed addiction help, she found that their addictive behaviors frequently stopped and that their fear of relapse was also often gone.
One reason that hypnosis is so effective is that it changes a person’s deepest beliefs about who he is. We believe that when a person quits an addiction, he needs to be something other than an “addict in recovery” for the rest of his life. Instead of telling someone what they are not, we implant an identity about what they are and what they want to be. We create a positive identity of being healthy, in control, powerful and free from a disease.
A hypnotherapist will typically work on a client’s core issues, such as memories that make the person weak and fearful. As we know, a chronic substance misuser has a deep and powerful memory bank of failure, fears and hopelessness. Changing the way the brain reacts to these memories actually stops the cravings and the desire for drugs or alcohol.
