Clinical Hypnosis - an easy way to change Hypnosis is a state of relaxation (there are 6 levels of hypnotic relaxation) which allows the clinical hypnotist, with the individual's permission, to give agreed upon instructions to the unconscious mind. There are two basic uses of Clinical Hypnosis: (1) Direct Suggestion and (2) Age Regression.
Direct Suggestion Clinical Hypnosis is achieved with use of visualization, relaxation techniques,and repetition of commands to the unconscious according to the individual's wishes. Age Regression to the cause of the issue allows the Clinical Hypnotherapist and patient/client to identify the initial "imprinting" of the belief which can then be "updated." Changing a belief, changes the behavior and accompanying attitude.
Who Can Be Hypnotized? According to the World Health Organization, 90% of the General Population can be hypnotized. If you want to be hypnotized, usually you can be hypnotized. Exceptions are those individuals who have: 1. Significant Cognitive disorders 2. A mind altered drug state 3. An alcohol altered mind 4. Organic brain disorders
The unconscious mind accounts for 88-97% of the brain's activity depending on age and development. It effects both involuntary and voluntary systems and can influence blood pressure, heart beat, pain sensation, blood flow, healing, along with beliefs, behavior, and attitudes. Clinical Hypnotherapy allows the clinician to directly address the unconscious mind in a positive way. The unconscious mind is in control of accepting and denying suggestions and interventions depending on the will and belief structure of the individual.
