How Hypnotherapy Works

The hypnotherapy refers to the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes, especially for a behavior change or the attitudes of a patient, as well for a number of diseases: anxiety, diseases associated with stress, pain control and personal development (evolution).

Although the word hypnosis comes from the Greek word “Hypnos” meaning sleep, the hypnosis is actually a deep state of relaxation, which may have different levels. In fact, even during a very deep trance, the person always remains aware of what happens.

Most psychological theories say that many personal and relational problems originate in the subconscious, where hundreds of thousands of data is stored which controls a big part of our existence. The family and cultural norms, for example, can be assimilated so powerful by our subconscious giving birth to behaviors that influence the decisions we make daily without us being aware of this thing.

The hypnotherapist invites the patient subconscious to give up on the bad ideas and to replace them with others that benefit the patient. During a hypnosis session, you can create some suggestions that can be reactivated if necessary. For example, a person who wants to quit having snacks between meals may, during the hypnosis, associate the word “stop”, followed by deep breathing with a feeling of fullness and calm.

For the hypnotherapy to be successful the patient must be voluntary (willing to be hypnotized) and to trust the person who hypnotizes. Any suggestion that does not correspond with his values can be rejected immediately and the person would get out of the hypnotic trance. Therefore, the mental faculties of the subject can not be controlled.

How Does It Work?
In the state of hypnosis, the subconscious is in the center of attention, leaving the conscious that is generally hyperactive dormant. Because of the hypnotherapy techniques, the resources that are rarely access by the brain can be exploited activating for example the self healing power (function).

With some simple techniques, a properly trained person may induce a state of hypnosis to almost anyone. At least 80% of people can be hypnotized, some easier than others.

In the first session, the hypnotherapist asks the patient about his medical and psychological history, and then discusses with him the problems that need to be treated. An average session lasts 50 -60 minutes. Most people get the first results after 4 sessions. Children are generally easier hypnotized, change is often found after just one or two sessions.

The state of hypnosis is pleasant and can be compared with what we feel in the morning when we wake up do not want to open our eyes, but all the perceptions are very clear. In the state of hypnosis, however, the reality and the images created by the brain tend to be confused.

In general, the hypnotherapy has beneficial effects on:
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Phobia control
  • Asthma prevention
  • Reducing migraines and insomnia
  • The treatment of neurosis, hysteria and behavioral disorders
  • The treatment of the eating disorders: anorexia and bulimia
  • Curing the substances dependence: alcohol and tobacco
  • Decreasing depression
  • The emotional addiction treatment
  • The timidity treatment

HOW to lose weight with hypnosis

How To Lose Weight With Hypnosis

It has always amazed me that people expect to see changes in their lives, yet they rarely realize or are simply not willing to accept that changes will not come about simply by wishing, hoping or praying. To beget changes, whatever they may be, requires a deeply seeded commitment to replace familiar attitudes with new ones; to reposition one’s perspective; to modify one’s ways of thinking, to shatter negative associations while replacing them with positive ones and, most importantly, to break old habits and replace them with new and improved ones.

When it comes to something as personal as weight loss, the resistance to change becomes much more pronounced which, as a consequence, leads to inevitable failure. If you have ever tried losing weight you will appreciate the fact that one failure to lose weight  leads to another failure which then has you pivoting from one faddish diet program to the next. You lose some weight then you gain more of it back, you lose some weight again and quickly regain it again, and so on and on. It is a heartbreaking, vicious seesaw that must be stopped before the damage to your body and your mind become irreversible.

Lose Weight with Hypnosis
Due to the fact that hypnosis is a semiconscious mental state with heightened suggestibility and increased receptiveness, hypnotized persons will not be prone to resist that which they may have otherwise. It is, therefore, easier under hypnosis to permanently institute the changes needed for losing weight and it is the most natural and safest means by which weight loss can be attained and then maintained for the rest of one’s life. So, how can hypnosis help you lose weight?

1.Hypnosis can and will help you adopt a newly improved self image by letting you see yourself as the skinnier you of the future. You will have a vividly desirable visual image to walk toward.

2.Nervousness, stress, anger, fear, anxiety, grief, sadness and all the other negative emotions that come up are often the catalysts which may drive you to reach for fattening comfort foods. Hypnosis can and will get you to relax and calm down and by doing that, will eliminate your need for comfort foods.

3.Hypnosis can and will refocus your attention from dieting and weight loss to the successful achievement of having reached your goals.

4.Hypnosis can and will set you on a circular path of feeling good about yourself which will inspire you to lose the weight which will then make you feeling even better about yourself which will lead to losing more weight, and this positive circle will continue on and on.

5.Hypnosis can and will make it easier for you to overcome subconscious hurdles that have stopped you from effectively losing weight in the past. It is almost like retraining your subconscious not to get in the way of your will.

6.Hypnosis can and will change your belief system about the hardship of dieting and will get you excited about changing your lifestyle to incorporate a more healthful diet and an exercise routine.

Use these tips to complement other methods of weight loss programs and you should start seeing results. With the help of hypnosis you are on your way to a more beautiful and healthier you.
