Hypnotherapy & Healing
Healing during hypnotherapy can take place on the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual levels. Hypnosis can become a bridge to enhancing the healing process.
If I were to ask you what you do to relax, what would your answer be?
Maybe you would tell me that you like to read a book or potter in the garden. Or maybe you would watch a movie, have a glass of wine or play golf. This is a question I often ask my clients and the responses are almost always the same. Clients will name an activity that they like to engage themselves in. These are some of the things we do to enjoy ourselves and are indeed, a form of relaxation.
However once a client has experienced the deep physical and mental relaxation that is produced when he/she is in the state of hypnosis, they will almost always comment that they have not felt that depth of relaxation before. This is because the hypnotherapist generally induces hypnosis by engaging that part of the autonomic nervous system (the parasympathetic nervous system) that balances the mind and body between stresses and promotes homeostasis, which in turn promotes healing.
Experiencing this type of altered state of consciousness (hypnosis) can be extremely beneficial for ones sense of health and well-being. It can be beneficial without the hypnotherapist giving any further suggestions. While in the hypnotic trance, and with therapeutic techniques used during hypnosis, mental, physical, spiritual and emotional healing can occur.
