Hypnosis for Positive Change is a state of focused attention, heightened suggestibility, and deep relaxation.
Dana Green CCHt, is a certified hypnotherapist who uses hypnosis as a therapeutic alternative and drug free way for self-improvement, healing and personal growth.
During hypnosis, individuals enter a trance-like state, often characterized by increased openness to suggestions. Contrary to some popular misconceptions, people in a hypnotic state remain aware of their surroundings, and they cannot be forced to do anything against their will.
Hypnosis is often used for therapeutic purposes and can be applied to address various mental and physical health concerns. Here are some ways in which hypnosis is utilized for healing:
- Pain Management: Hypnosis has been employed to help individuals manage and alleviate chronic pain conditions. By altering perceptions of pain and promoting relaxation, hypnosis may contribute to pain relief.
- Stress and Anxiety Reduction: Hypnosis is known for inducing a deep state of relaxation, which can be beneficial in reducing stress and anxiety. It may help individuals learn to respond to stressors more calmly and cope with anxiety more effectively.
- Smoking Cessation: Hypnosis is sometimes used as part of smoking cessation programs. It aims to help individuals overcome the psychological aspects of addiction, such as cravings and habits associated with smoking.
- Weight Loss: Hypnotherapy for weight loss focuses on changing unhealthy eating patterns, addressing emotional eating, and promoting a positive attitude toward exercise. It can be used as a complementary approach in weight management programs.
- Behavioral Changes: Hypnosis can assist in modifying undesirable behaviors or habits, such as nail-biting, bed-wetting, or hair-pulling (trichotillomania). It may also help with breaking certain patterns of thinking.
- Improving Sleep: Hypnosis may be utilized to address sleep disorders by promoting relaxation and addressing underlying issues contributing to insomnia or disrupted sleep patterns.
- Managing Phobias: Hypnotherapy can be effective in treating specific phobias by helping individuals confront and reframe irrational fears.
- Enhancing Performance: Some individuals use hypnosis to improve performance in various areas, such as academics, sports, or public speaking. It may help boost confidence, concentration, and focus.
- Addressing Trauma and PTSD: Hypnosis may be used as part of a therapeutic approach to address trauma and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can help individuals process and reframe traumatic memories.
Hypnosis can be used for Past Life Regression Therapy to recover memories or experiences from previous lifetimes. It is based on the belief in reincarnation, which suggests that individuals have lived multiple lives and that current life issues may be connected to past-life experiences. The goal is to access memories or experiences that may be relevant to the individual’s current challenges or concerns. If the individual encounters any challenging or traumatic experiences during the regression, the therapist aims to guide them toward resolution and healing. This may involve reframing perceptions, releasing emotional attachments and gaining insights.
