Why hypnosis as an alternative therapy?
Hypnosis has countless uses in psychotherapy, psychiatry and various medical specialties. The use of hypnotic techniques by the mental and medical fields has increased steadily in recent years, because hypnosis is gaining widespread acceptance as a safe, reliable, effective and comfortable alternative or adjunct to other, more traditional methods. In the modern climate of skyrocketing health care costs, hypnosis is also proving invaluable as an aid in speeding recovery from physical and mental problems.
Hypnosis Helps Speed the Process of Improvement & Therapy
There are many good reasons to seek the expertise of a hypnosis practitioner who is skilled in the use of hypnosis as a method of therapy. Hypnosis is used effectively to facilitate patients’ understanding of themselves or their problems, extinguish unfortunate habits, uncover repressed or forgotten memories, reduce anxiety and fears, and develop a new and more adaptive outlook. In medicine and health areas, hypnosis is used to effectively treat irritable bowel syndrome, reduce pain and discomfort associated with medical procedures such as childbirth, treatment of burns, and surgery where anesthesia cannot be used effectively. It is also used to treat chronic pain and psychosomatic problems and counter unhealthy habits that contribute to illness. In dentistry, hypnotic analgesia is an effective needleless alternative to topical anaesthetic drugs, reduces bleeding and discomfort in oral surgery, and is used to treat teeth grinding and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome.
Because our mind is the common denominator in all of these areas, hypnosis is one of the most powerful methods we can use to improve ourselves.
Hypnosis As A Tool for Help
Hypnotherapy is not a new healing tool — it is a very old method. The first uses of hypnosis by health professionals occurred more than 200 years ago. In its early days clinical hypnosis was used to treat hysterical conditions and was very useful as a replacement for anesthesia in surgery. In the first half of the 20th century, hypnosis was often viewed as an exotic or fringe method in medicine and psychology but slowly became realized as a powerful clinical tool. Hypnosis earned formal recognition as a valuable tool in healthcare in 1958 when the Council on Mental Health of the American Medical Association recommended that instruction in hypnosis be included in medical school curriculum. Hypnosis was embraced a few years later by the American Psychological Association. Thousands of psychologists, dentists and physicians in various specialties now have thorough training hypnotic methods within their specialty areas. Professional organization in clinical hypnosis provide extensive training and continuing education in hypnosis and provide their members with specific ethical guidelines for the professional use of hypnosis.
