Many think hypnosis and hypnotherapy are like the movies with a swaying watch and a brain washed individual devoid of free choice. This is farther from the truth. Hypnotherapy does create a subconscious state but instead of a state of a control it is a state of relaxation and suggestion. It looks to not reprogram but open and heal.
Some individuals may not be as prone to suggestion while others may successfully react to the treatment. The therapy looks to heal deep seeded trauma and looks to help individuals heal but it also looks to help individuals overcome bad habits and other phobias.
The article, “What Is Hypnotherapy? (Hint: It’s Nothing Like the Hypnosis You See on TV)” from Cleveland Clinic Health Essentials, dismisses man of the myths of hypnosis and directs one to a better understanding of its aims and functions. The article states,
“When you hear the word hypnosis, does it bring to mind a stage show where a hypnotist puts people to sleep and then wakes them up to make them cluck like chickens and perform other embarrassing tasks? If so, you might be surprised to learn that hypnosis is commonly used in medical care.”
