The applications of hypnosis are numerous. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, dentists and psychologists use them. In therapeutic use, it literally works wonders!
The possibilities of the unconscious are very powerful, even unlimited. The idea is to make them available and to learn to use them! This is a technique by which one makes a subtle and appropriate communication with the brain to better manage anxiety, phobias, pain, blood flow, etc. In fact, it relies on brain mechanisms that are waiting to be activated and involved.
Moreover, the competence of the specialist avoids certain risks inherent in the practice of hypnosis and helps to respond appropriately in special cases. We must stress the importance of clinical training. If a childhood trauma rises to the surface, a therapist had better be well equipped to cope. Indeed, removing a symptom, for example smoking, results in the return of the pulse in another form. It would then displace the problem. However when the initial trauma is ruled out, other problems are solved too in a natural and smooth way.
There is another possible risk with a major application of hypnosis: the elimination of pain, this is an alarm signal that we cannot turn off with impunity, ignoring the real cause of it. But if the diagnosis is clear, in the case of chronic pain, for example, hypnosis can provide real relief. In addition, hypnosis has a proven effect on stress and its effects!
Hypnosis in the Operating Room
The benefits of hypnosis include relaxation and also reducing the use of drugs (sedatives, analgesics, anxiolytics, etc.) and their side effects and postoperative pain. The recovery is also accelerated. Successful hypnosedation is a complementary modality, based on cooperation and trust between the surgeon, the hypnotherapist and the patient.
Regarding the action of hypnosis on pain, in addition to the increased production of endorphins, natural painkillers, other neurological pathways block the flow of pain impulses before they reach the brain. The main thrust in this area is the discovery of a correlation between the activity of the anterior cingulate cortex and the modulation of nociceptive and affective components of pain.
A broad scope
Despite the best intentions, if one is dealing with blockages and unconscious programming, we help to get the good things of life. We can maintain positive thoughts to the conscious state while the subconscious is overcrowded and limiting negative thoughts from the past. By opening a door to the unconscious through hypnosis, the results are often staggering!
The possibilities of this approach are theoretically unlimited. Here are some possible applications: natural childbirth, allergies, anesthesia, anxiety, emotional blocks, compulsions, addictions, grief, pain, depression, fibromyalgia, low self-esteem, migraines, phobias, preoperative preparation and postoperative support, weaning smoking, stress, irritable bowel syndrome, trauma in general, sexual dysfunction and eating behavior.
