What is Hypnotherapy?
When people think of hypnosis, they often think of stage hypnosis because that may be their only frame of reference.
Stage hypnosis is very popular for entertainment purposes and is obviously very different than hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. A stage hypnotist is very skilled at selecting the perfect people for demonstration, highly suggestible people.
The stage hypnotist and the hypnotherapist use the same principles to put a person into a state of hypnosis, but the difference is that stage hypnosis is purely for entertainment to show the extraordinary power of the mind, and hypnotherapy is used to harness that power to make positive behavioral changes. Stage hypnosis is not used to change behavior patterns, it is used to create an immediate response or reaction using the most powerful part of your mind.
Using hypnosis to change a behavior pattern can take more time depending on what the pattern is and why the person has developed it.
Hypnosis is defined as a highly suggestible state. Suggestibility is simply the way one learns and takes in information. Hypnosis is a natural state which we all drift in and out of several times a day, and is your mind’s way of escaping and taking a break, but it is also a time when accelerated learning can happen.
So what is hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is a way to use your mind to heal physical and psychological issues and illnesses. It can be used in conjunction with medical or mental health treatment. Please keep in mind that individual results vary and results are not guaranteed.
