Beneficial Effects of Hypnotherapy (Hypnosis)
Before establishing and laying all the facts and details to support the efficiencies and credibility of hypnosis over its negative traits and does hypnotherapy work, let us first enumerate the uses or purposes of this treatment. We will begin by specifically identifying the reasons why patients seek this kind of behavioural treatment and recognise what are the indisputable benefits it gives to the patients.
Hypnotherapy works effectively in relieving and managing both acute and chronic pain. Acute pain happens suddenly, but it does not last long. When the injury (that brings about the pain) heals, the pain also tends to stops. Chronic type of pain, on the other hand, tends to last longer. It comes and goes and is often more severe.
Applying this therapy helps in removing pain, discomfort and distress. Inducing this type of therapy, like other relaxation methods, also helps patients alleviate the pain and discomfort they feel from symptoms that usually come with insomnia and other psychosomatic illnesses. Mothers also use this kind of therapy during childbirth. It effectively deals with tensions, headaches, migraine, asthma, gastro-intestinal illnesses, warts and other skin related complaints like eczema, psoriasis and hives. These are just the few applications that deal with the physical state of a patient.
Applying hypnotherapy to improve the behavioural state of a patient involves the use of relaxation and Neuro-Linguistic Programming commonly know as NLP. These methods can bring the patient to a state of hypnosis that greatly influences many behavioural problems that he or she wants to change. The presentation will be classified into three different fields to help you better understand where this kind of therapy can be advantageously used.
- Used to achieve behavioural improvements. Some people suffer from many behavioural problems that greatly affect their lives and how they function. Patients use this method to treat these conditions: anger management, depression, obsessive/compulsive disorder, alcoholism, substance abuse or any kind of addiction, depression and eating disorders.
- Areas they want to forget. Patients wish to develop new and better behaviour patterns. Illnesses or conditions that this therapy can treat are as follows: panic attacks, phobias and sexual abuse; post-traumatic stress, thoughts and other overwhelming sufferings they have suffered far too long that they wish to disappear.
- Areas where patients want to improve to develop their personal, social/inter-personal aspects in life. Application of self-hypnosis is very eminent in this area. Areas that the therapy can cure include sexual problems or sexual dysfunctions, stammering (improve confidence in self-esteem and speech by use of NLP), stress and other anxieties, insomnia (applying relaxation to induce the patient to sleep) and weight loss issues.
- Mainly used to boost confidence and enhance motivation in order to develop better behaviour and performance. Other social use of this is by means of stage-hypnosis. This is common in hotels, cruise ships or any other business establishments that aim to entertain huge amount of audience. The therapist may also use past life regression, by means of hypnosis, for patients who wish to seek a different experience in a psychotherapeutic setting.
