THE TRUTH ABOUT HYPNOSIS
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. In clinical hypnotherapy sessions you are always in control, maintaining consciousness and awareness but in a deep relaxed state so that you can be more in touch with your emotions and subconscious mind. There are different levels of hypnotic states created jointly in therapy. The therapist is a guide to your subconscious, using regression to stored memories, gestalt therapy and suggestion techniques to enable you to enrich your life, achieve desires or transform old negative beliefs or thinking.
The mind is powerful. Your subconscious mind holds many memories and beliefs, some of which you may not be aware, that may be influencing your life today.
THE MIND BODY CONNECTION
Many deal with physical as well as emotional pain. The term psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is used to describe the interactions between the mental state, nervous system and immune systems. In research, the main interest of PNI is the interaction between the nervous and immune systems and the relation between mind processes and health. PNI has an interdisciplinary approach, interlacing psychology, neuroscience, immunology, physiology, pharmacology, psychiatry, behavioral medicine, infectious diseases, endocrinology, rheumoatology and others. The PNI helps to understand how hypnosis is used to affect the mind state to improve physical functioning and deal with pain. It also explains how stress and anxiety/panic attacks can create symptoms of pain.
Chronic Pain/Illness Management
Stress Reduction - Insomnia Symptoms
Hypnotherapy is used to manage or relieve pain. The brain and the body talk to each other through signaled pathways. Understanding how the body's primary stress management system responds to a physical and mental challenge and the need to maintain homeostasis or balance is important. Dysregulation of this Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is implicated in numerous stress-related dis-eases. Therapy interventions and techniques using in Hypnotherapy can normalize the stress response and lead one to create real health changes.
The Stress Response: Unhealthy stored psychologic information - unhealthy mind talk - fear and anxiety - emotional distress - chemical messengers - physiologic stress - increased risk of disease - increased risk of addictions.
