Welcome to A to Z of Healing with Isheeria’s Healing Circles.
[H] is for Hypnotherapy
Hypnotism is derived from the Greek word ‘hypnos’ meaning induced state of sleep where the subject/patient acts on external suggestion.
Thanks to popular cinema and stage-hypnosis shows in the 18th century, many myths abound about Hypnotism. Rarely has there been a focus or popularization of the Therapeutic aspects of Hypnosis.
Hypnotism is an ancient discipline, which was developed by the sages to develop their power for concentration and it has now evolved into an alternative form of Therapy and Healing.
Hypnotherapy using hypnosis to delve into the recesses of the mind, the inner self and realize all potential existing. It creates sub-conscious change – wherein there is a change in the person on the inside, in terms of what co-relation they see in a habit or action, and helps them change and create new thoughts, habits, actions and behaviours. It is an excellent tool for helping a person alter their behaviour patterns.
Hypnotherapy can help change how a person feels about themselves, others or certain things.
There are many methods to do hypnosis, but the success of any method depends on the openness and acceptance of the patient. Once the patient is open to the suggestions by the Hypnotherapist, they can work on Healing.
Hypnotherapy has long been used in Childbirth, to help reduce the anxiety, pain and discomfort of the mother.
Psychiatric treatments use this therapy to treat hysteria, anxiety, depression, habit disorders, control irrational fears, insomnia, addiction, and most importantly change the story we tell ourselves.
