What is Hypnosis

 A clinical definition from Naples Hypnotherapy Academy:

Hypnosis is a natural yet altered state, where the critical faculty (the analytical mind) is bypassed while selective thinking is maintained.

Although most people have heard about hypnosis, it has been widely believed that hypnosis is a part of the mystical, supernatural or esoteric world. There are even those who then believe hypnosis is evil or not of GOD. These are all wrong but are coming from well-intended, yet uninformed sources. While hypnosis has been misunderstood since the beginning of time, it is now recognized that hypnosis is a science. Under certain conditions, the mind goes to a state referred to as the Altered State of Awareness, or otherwise known as "the state of Hypnosis". 

We will now explore the different ways we sometimes experience this Altered State.

If you have ever watched a television show or movie and became really absorbed into the show, and perhaps found yourself crying or feeling some emotional element the movie intended you to feel, you were in an altered state of awareness. (This altered state, is Hypnosis) 

This altered state is what caused you to not hear your mother calling you to dinner until she raised her voice for the third time.

Another common example of this naturally occurring state of mind, is when you are driving down the road, and your mind drifts off (daydreaming), and next thing you know, you are at your destination

 That is called "highway hypnosis".

"So, now you know that you can be hypnotized"

You have experienced this natural phenomenon literally thousands of times. You did it yourself inducing the hypnoidal state, as you daydreamed and missed that turn (self-hypnosis), you have been hypnotized when you enjoyed a television program or each time we read a captivating novel, (being hypnotized by someone else), and you have followed hypnotic and post-hypnotic suggestions when you preferred some brand name that you saw repeatedly on television over another (hypnotic compounding of suggestion).

Hypnosis (or the Hypnoidal state) is a naturally occurring state of within the mind, which happens to us every day, multiple times.

Hypnotherapy is the use of the hypnoidal state (the state of Hypnosis), along with specific therapeutic techniques (executed by a properly trained, Certified Hypnotherapist) to overcome issues being experienced and to reprogram the subconscious mind while giving supportive guidance to resolve the most pressing problems. For example, Weight loss, Smoking, Or alcoholism and more.

Exploring the Mysteries of Hypnosis

Published: February 2012

The brain basis of the hypnotic state remains a matter of conjecture.

The term "hypnosis," invented in the 19th century, is derived from the Greek word for sleep, but the derivation is misleading. People undergoing hypnosis are often physically relaxed, and they may be told to close their eyes to enter a hypnotic state, but they remain fully awake and alert. Yet the way that the brain processes information during hypnosis does suggest an alteration in consciousness that researchers are still trying to understand.

A hypnotic state involves three related features: absorption or selective attention, suggestibility, and dissociation. Selective attention is a tendency to focus narrowly, noting certain aspects of experience while becoming oblivious to others. Suggestibility is high responsiveness to social and other environmental cues, including the instructions of a hypnotist. Dissociation is an apparent loss of the unity and continuity of consciousness — a seemingly divided awareness or the capacity to shut out certain perceptions and memories.

The American Psychiatric Association endorsed hypnosis as a therapy in 1961. Studies have found hypnosis to be helpful in alleviating physical pain, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and eating disorders — as well as other mental health disorders.  But exactly what happens to a person's consciousness during hypnosis remains a matter of conjecture and ongoing debate.

Hypnotherapy: A Piece of the Puzzle

Hypnotherapy is typically a complementary therapy, meaning that it's part of a broader treatment plan. "Hypnosis is most often integrated with traditional medical, dental, and psychotherapy treatments," says Dr. Max Shapiro, a psychologist with Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital.

This is especially true for treating conditions such as anxiety, for example. Dr. Shapiro notes that psychotherapy and antianxiety drugs are still the most effective anxiety treatments, but that hypnosis is worth trying, especially if you are motivated.

"Hypnosis rarely gets rid of all anxiety symptoms," he says. "Sometimes it can reduce the physical discomfort of anxiety disorders, such as muscle tension, unsettled stomach, and rapid breathing. By controlling physical symptoms, you prevent them from making you more anxious."
