The Health Benefits of Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is useful for treating a variety of complaints, both physical and mental. Used in conjunction with other therapies, such as psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy can help patients to overcome certain psychological complaints, including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, depression, phobias, and neuroses. It is particularly useful for overcoming phobias, and ceasing problematic habitual behaviour, like stammering, snoring, smoking, teeth grinding, sleepwalking or nail biting. It can also help alleviate some of the symptoms of physical complaints like allergies, travel sickness, insomnia and irritable bowel syndrome.
Used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment, hypnotherapy has demonstrated positive benefits in the treatment of cancer. Hypnotherapy is also useful in providing general health benefits, such as improving posture and digestion, reducing dependence on sleeping pills or tranquilizers, and helping to eradicate stress. Hypnotherapy is not generally advisable for mentally disturbed or psychotic patients. Some psychiatric professionals do use hypnotherapy in conjunction with orthodox treatments for patients with such conditions, but always within an institutional environment where other forms of treatment are also available. Patients suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar conditions, suicidal tendencies, senility, alcohol or drug psychosis, pathological personalities or manic depression are generally advised not to undergo hypnotherapy. While hypnotherapy is useful in alleviating mild cases of depression, it is contra-indicated for manic depression and bipolar conditions. It is also contraindicated in some cases of epilepsy. So many folks ask me if hypnotherapy indeed works. The undeniable and precise answer is YES! Most people do not appreciate what hypnosis and hypnotherapy is, which makes it really complex to make sense of. It furthermore does not assist when people see stage hypnotists making people cluck like chickens or performing out certain unusual predicaments.
A lot of people assume that the people on stage are faking their trance, although this is not really the case I can guarantee you. All those individuals on stage are nonetheless completely compliant and wished to be hypnotised. They knew what will happen and would certainly not put themselves forward except when they had been thrilled to become a good part of the display as well as experience hypnosis.
