Medical Hypnosis Works
Hypnosis has been clinically proven to be more effective than acupuncture and not harmful like addictive pain meds—because the power of hypnosis resides in the patient.
Medical hypnosis provides beneficial change even in difficult cases. Often this change occurs quickly, and sometimes it appears in unexpectedly beneficial ways.
Working with your medical treatment, hypnotherapy can mitigate pain, eliminate allergies, help with pregnancy and infertility and create healing.
Health & Wellness
Dr. Bruce Lipton in his book “The Biology of Belief” states, “Almost every major illness has been linked to chronic stress”. Stress is the engagement of the nervous system in fight or flight. Overwork, relationships, technology, financial burdens all cause stress.
Hypnosis improves your health because it is a state of profound relaxation where you can concentrate on making desired changes. Through the mind/body connection, you can visualize healing, reduce pain and promote health.
Medical uses for hypnosis include:
Hypnosis induces a feeling of an anesthetic for chronic pain, essentially using the body’s natural endorphins to reduce pain.
Conditions that respond positively to hypnosis include:
- Tooth pain
- Menstrual pain
- Migraine Headaches
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Rotator cuff pain
- And many other conditions
You don’t want to take sleep medications, but you wake up alert at the wrong time. You can’t get back to sleep. You begin to worry causing stress.
Structured meditation, learning to relax your body and accept that sometimes you may be awake at night, keeps agitating hormones out of your system so you can easily fall asleep.
The trees bloom and you sneeze! Your auto immune system is confused. It is reacting to a harmless environmental substance as if it is dangerous.
There was a time when your body didn’t react to the allergen, and hypnosis can help it remember that. Hypnosis restores your body’s ability to recognize what is dangerous and what is safe. It reduces symptoms and erases the need for medications or shots.
Hospitalizations are stressful, even for the most successful surgeries. Pre-surgery hypnosis eliminates anxiety, reactions to anesthetic, promotes healing and dials down the pain.
You can purchase a recording to take with you to the hospital. It reinforces suggestions and makes your experience much more pleasant.
Reduce Blood Pressure
The stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline constrict blood flow, causing your blood pressure to rise. The serene experience of hypnosis reduces muscle tension and vascular constriction immediately lowering blood pressure. Hypnotic suggestions can keep your body from reacting in situations that used to upset and trigger you.
Chemotherapy, pregnancy and some essential medications can cause debilitating nausea. Hypnosis works to dilate blood vessels, reduce muscle tension, distract focus and induce deep breathing, reducing uncomfortable sensations and stomach trauma.
Neuroscientist’s at Harvard showed that people who use hypnosis had measurably thicker tissue in the left prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain important for processing memory and cognitive retrieval.
Hypnosis offers you a form of deep relaxation that allows you to reach into your unconscious mind to enjoy an improved memory and to find your lost keys.
