What exactly is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of altered consciousness that occurs naturally in every person just before entering into the sleep state. In therapeutic hypnosis, we prolong this brief interlude so that we can work within its bounds. Dr James Braid conceived the word “Hypnosis”. He was born in 1795, studied medicine at Edinburgh, and settled as a surgeon in Manchester, where he died in 1860. Braid utilised the name of the Greek god of Sleep, Hypno, as the basis for the name of the healing modality to which he dedicated his life’s work.

Can everybody be hypnotised?

Yes because it is a normal state that everyone passes through before going to sleep. However, it is possible to resist Hypnosis, as it is possible to resist going asleep. With practice, the resistance to hypnosis can be overcome.

What is the value of Hypnosis?

It is often employed to reduce tension and discomfort that accompany various physical problems, and to aid certain rehabilitative procedures. Hypnosis is also used to address many problems such as anxiety, depression, destructive habits, and other emotional responses to the stress of daily life.

Who can utilise Hypnosis?

Only a qualified professional should decide if one needs hypnosis or would benefit from it. The professional person needs special training in the techniques and uses of hypnosis before being considered qualified and should be a member of a registered therapeutic hypnosis association.

Can’t hypnosis be dangerous?

The hypnotic state is no more dangerous than the sleep state. Hypnosis, as portrayed in the movies, and other media, often strays far from reality. There are no dangers in therapeutic hypnosis when practiced by ethical and qualified therapists. Hypnosis is a safe and highly effective drug-free form of therapy for conditions that affect the body, mind and spirit.

What does it feel like to be hypnotised?

The experience of hypnosis is no different from that of relaxing and going asleep. Because this experience is so familiar, one may expect something startling different in hypnosis and be discouraged when hypnosis is induced.

The mind is active, and thoughts are totally under the control of the client who perceives all stimuli and is able to communicate with the therapist. Occasionally heaviness in the arms and tingling in the hands and fingers may be experienced.

Most have the idea that they will go through something different, new and spectacular in the hypnotic state. Often, they equate being hypnotised with being anaesthetised, being asleep or being unconscious. When in hypnosis they find that their mind is active; that they can hear every sound in the room; that they can resist suggestions if they so desire; that their attention keeps wandering, their thoughts race around; that they have not fallen asleep and they remember everything when they open their eyes and so believe that they are a poor subject and are apt to abandon hypnotic treatments.

How does hypnosis work?

The mind is completely suggestible. It is constantly bombarded with information from outside and suggestive thoughts and ideas from the inside.

A good deal of human suffering is the consequence of “negative” thoughts and impulses invading one’s mind from subconscious recesses. Past experiences, guilt feelings and repudiated impulses and desires are incessantly pushing themselves into awareness, directly or in disguised forms, sabotaging one’s happiness, health and efficiency.

In Hypnosis, we replace these “negative” thoughts and attitudes with “positive” ones. It can take some time to change the old patterns so do not be discouraged if there are no immediate effects.
