What is possible with hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis enables a wide field of action
Hypnosis does not work the same way for everyone and can achieve amazing results. You too have been hypnotized at one time or another without possibly realizing it or having a hypnotherapist present. Imagine you are sitting on a train listening to the monotonous sounds of wheels or watching the scenery pass you by. You are engrossed in an exciting book or listening fascinated to the sounds of a piece of music. During all these events you are already in a trance or in hypnosis. Focusing on something and a sustained monotony can naturally put you into a state of hypnosis. This happens when so-called hypnagogic dream images reach consciousness. A trance is therefore not a state in which you are unconscious, as if out of your senses and without will, but rather a concentrated awareness. The consciousness can be lowered, but also increased. Thus, with hypnosis it is possible to get out of fixed thought patterns of everyday life and to make room for new ways of thinking. The goal is to open the perception to new realities.
Hypnosis as an expansion of consciousness
Summarizing this can be called expansion of consciousness, so with hypnosis new forms of thinking, experiencing and feeling are possible, which is the basis for psychological and physical healing processes.Since hypnosis can be used to influence virtually all processes of the human body, it is also used as a therapeutic application. For example, it plays a role in the pain treatment
or also in addiction therapy plays a role.Hypnosis can also be used during pregnancy and childbirth, and as supportive therapy for various diseases. Another important field of application of hypnosis is psychosomatic medicine. Psychosomatic diseases
lead to physical complaints for which there are no physical causes. The basis for this is the so-called soul-body problem. Mental stresses also affect the body and vice versa. In addition to psychosomatics, hypnosis also plays a role in analytical psychotherapy.
Even Sigmund Freud knew that hypnosis can be used to gain access to repressed and buried memories.
Only when access to these can be re-established can they be processed, and this is what hypnosis makes possible. Hypnosis also plays a role in behavior therapy. Here, the patient can visualize his beliefs as well as typical everyday situations and take new and self-confident paths. Through hypnosis, new behavioral patterns can be established and this can be done in an initially protected setting of the therapy room before this is then applied in reality. In summary, hypnosis is not really a therapy method in its own right, but rather a tool that can be used in a variety of ways. Whether in the treatment of pain, in stress
, psychosomatic and psychological problems or addiction problems - a lot is possible with hypnosis. It also achieves very good results with anxiety disorders
and panic attacks
