Hypnosis: How Hypnosis Works and What Hypnosis Can Do For You

How Hypnosis Works

What's Hypnosis?

What exactly is hypnosis? While definitions can vary, The American Psychological Association describes hypnosis as a cooperative interaction in which the participant  trusts and responds to the suggestions of the hypnotist. 

Hypnosis has also been clinically proven to provide medical and therapeutic benefits; most notably in the reduction of  stress & anxiety, weight loss and smoking cessation

 

How does Hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand creative side is made more alert and susceptible to change.

The conscious control of the mind is relaxed (day dreaming), and the subconscious/unconscious mind awoken. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more instinctive force than the conscious mind, this is the part which has to change for the patient’s habits, behavior and physical state to alter to their benefit.

 

For example, a patient who consciously wants to overcome their fear of spiders may try everything they consciously can do to overcome their fear, but will still fail as long as their sub-conscious mind retains this terror – thus preventing the patient from succeeding.

Progress can only be made by  first  defining what the participant is trying to achieve and then re-programming the subconscious / unconscious landscape of the mind so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are challenged, abolished, dissolved, altered or even re-routed to something healthier.
