Benefits of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is the practice of positive healing in an individual undergoing Hypnotherapy. When a person undergoes hypnosis, the left side of their brain is being tuned out and replaced by a more prominent presence of the right side of the brain. This avoids any interference by the left side of the brain and ensures a more direct contact with the subconscious mind, which is focused on the right side of the brain.

The right side of our brain is a powerful tool that determines our emotional state, the way in which we see things, our instincts, and can sometimes overpower the logical left side of our brains. Studies have shown that when faced with two separate images one on the left and one on the right, a person will have conflicting views about which image they saw. When the eyes are located in the direct centre of these images (in this case a spoon and a knife), the subjects will say they saw a spoon (the right side image which will translate to the left side of the brain) and at the same time pick up the object they saw (the knife, shown on the left which is seen by the right side of the brain). Despite verbally confirming their choice as the spoon the right side of the brain still picks up the knife instead of the spoon because it knows this to be true. Although the subjects hesitated and appeared confused for a moment, when asked what they picked up they still confirmed they had picked up the “spoon” even though they clearly held a knife in their hand.

This is the power of the right side of the brain over the left and this is the subconscious area that Hypnosis is able to tap into. Hypnotherapy sessions rely on the ability to communicate with an alert and aware right side of the brain while the left side is dulled for a bit. This allows suggestions and ideas to be planted in the subconscious mind and allows us to view things differently. For example, Hypnotherapy can be used to tackle an eating problem, referred to as bulimia. The person undergoing Hypnosis may wish to eat less everyday because they are eating when they are not really hungry. Hypnotherapy can suggest to the right side of the brain that the person is not hungry as well as help positive thinking and promote general well being that will allow the person to feel more positive, provide motivation for eating less and dissolves the emotional attachments to food so they can view food in an entirely new way.

Hypnosis can be used for a variety of areas including anger management, stress, self-improvement, phobias, health and smoking. Hypnotherapy is a versatile positive experience that can relax, provide a deep thorough calming atmosphere and provide positive thinking and well being that enables the therapy to create a foothold and build on to promote a positive way of thinking. This means anything from phobias to a lack of confidence can be tackled and for some people that means just one single session. You can even obtain Hypnosis sessions online with an mp3 download, which means even if you do get the urges or fears returning, you can quickly and easily listen to your session, again and keep those fears and habits under control. Once you buy one Hypnotherapy download you will not need to buy another one again for that same topic. Best of all, each hypnotherapy download will be carefully constructed and voiced by a professional and qualified Hypnotherapist so you have peace of mind that you are in safe hands.
