Hypnosis is a natural state of a mind’s focused relaxation. Our mind slips in and out of a hypnotic state numerous times in our everyday living. If you’ve ever driven a vehicle for an extended period, sitting passively behind the steering wheel for hours at a time and later remembered little of what happened, you have been in hypnotic trance.Anyone can be hypnotized who wants to be. Being hypnotized is only a matter of wanting to and allowing it to happen.
Hypnosis is really a two-way process. Without your collaboration and willingness to effect changes in your life, nothing will happen. So, before you decide to consider Hypnosis ask yourself: “Do I want to change?”
The term “hypnosis” is derived from the Greek word hypnos, meaning “sleep.” Hypnotic or suggestive therapy is the oldest of all healing techniques. From the “Sleep Temples” of Egypt through the histories of ancient Greece and Rome, some form of hypnosis has been an intimate part of many ancient cultures.
In the past 40 years, hypnosis has emerged as a respected complementary health modality. Professionals such as doctors, educators, psychotherapists and allied health professionals have included hypnosis in their practice.
In 1958, both the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Hypnosis Association recognized hypnosis as a valid medical procedure. Since 1995, the National Institute of Health (NIH) has recommended hypnotherapy as a treatment for chronic pain.
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic modality which utilizes hypnosis for a powerful healing transformation. It is gentle but effective and its progress is rapid. When we seek to work directly with the subconscious mind we are accessing the roots of our current feelings, behaviors and beliefs.
Clinical hypnotherapy refers to the use of hypnosis as a means of therapeutic intervention, or as a part of a larger therapeutic program. The primary difference between this and common hypnosis, is that clinical hypnotherapy is administered by a highly trained and qualified professional who has spent years learning specific techniques. Clinical hypnotherapists require stringent certifications and they are governed by a comprehensive code of ethics.
How does hypnosis work?
All hypnosis is self hypnosis, in other words a therapist will give you suggestions in a certain way and it is up to you to follow those suggestions.
It is an altered state of consciousness into which you allow yourself to enter with the guidance of a therapist. You are in control all the time, you always know what is happening, and you can come out of the altered state at any moment.
During hypnosis you are gently guided to relax your conscious mind into a “passive mode” in which you notice everything around you but don’t bother to react. Hypnosis may allow and provide us with an opening to learn more about enormous capacity of our mind, to glimpse into the areas beyond everyday existence of our physical, mental and emotional lives, into the very depth of our consciousness, into “Life Beyond Lives” where all the dots are connected. This passive mode or hypnotic trance allows the subconscious mind the opportunity to share a wealth of information that is otherwise not available to your waking mind.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people begin to improve within 3 – 8 one hour sessions. Together, you and your hypnotherapist will constantly monitor and evaluate your progress.
There are as many uses for hypnosis as there are needs.
The following list by the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association includes areas known to be significantly helped by the use of Hypnosis:
Body & mind healing,
Fears & phobias,
Inner child dialogue,
Past life regression,
Test taking & study habits,
And much more…
All hypnosis is really self-hypnosis in that you, the patient, control the process. The therapist is merely a guide.”
– “Through Time Into Healing” by Brian Weiss
Hypnotic Regression is the method of taking the client back in time to discover the cause of present situation in a safe and controlled environment. Hypnotic Regression is a surprisingly gentle but effective method and, unlike many conventional therapies, progress is usually rapid.
When something new happens to us, we remember it and have a reaction in response to that circumstance. Memories stored in our brains hold our original physical and emotional feelings that occurred when the given memory was first formed. Each time similar events occur again, the physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. These reactions may be inappropriate or unhealthy to the present day situation. In Regression therapy, the trained therapist guides you to remember the event that led to the first reaction, separate the memory from the initial reaction and reconstruct the event with new, healthier associations.
“Regressing to significant childhood events, to infancy, or even to past lives may provide considerable relief and benefit in the present time. Sometimes, just through the act of remembering, symptoms can be removed. Memories can lead to understanding, and understanding frequently leads to healing.”
-“Mirrors of Time” by Dr. Brian Weiss.
Soul Body Alliance
I developed this program in 2012 when a young woman with a rare physical condition contacted me from the other side of the globe. Immediately, I felt compelled to take this challenge and we started to work.
This program was born out of our combined discoveries. I feel that this young woman came to show me what is possible and I am grateful for her gift.
I have been using this method with hundreds of clients worldwide with a great success.
It started as a Skype program, eventually, I added Soul Body Alliance program, as my offering to my in office clients.
Soul Body Alliance program developed on the premises that every cell in our body has a cosmic intelligence.
The program consists of number of short sessions. (minimum four)
By the fourth session clients may be able to benefit from the sense of comfort and understanding of what is really going on in their bodies and life around them.
If it’s a case of dis-ease- how to deal with it.
If making a choice – when to accept or change.
The method of Soul Body Alliance is very simple.
When we address a particular part of the body and create a favorable condition for a conversation, in a state of deep relaxation, the body will tell its story.
