                WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?



To start with, no one can be hypnotised against his will, or against his morals.

For example it is not possible, to tell anyone to rob a bank if it is against what you believe.

Hypnosis can not be used to make a person do what they normally would not do, like we occasionally see in movies.

A person always has to give his or her permission to be hypnotised. It is not dangerous and everyone wakes up.

During hypnosis, the body and conscious mind are in a relaxed, natural state, while the subconscious mind remains awake and receptive to suggestion. Hypnosis is an education-communication process to a person's mind that allows his/her conscious and subconscious minds to believe the same message and then acting on it.

How does the subconscious accept hypnotic suggestions?
Hypnotic suggestions bypass the intellectual mind, called the "conscious," and zero in on the subconscious. When given a new suggestion that is within the bounds of a person's belief system and moral orientation, the subconscious mind
can accept it literally as a new reality.

How does hypnosis help people? The ability to reprogram emotional attitudes and reactions is a latent talent within
every human being. Hypnosis is the most functional and reasonable way to train life-long attitudes, rather than suffer a lifetime of emotional accidents the conscious mind is unable to change.

Can any person be hypnotized?
People of average intelligence can be hypnotized in most cases if they are willing and allow themselves not to resist, (unless there is some form of brain damage) Mental
illness, strong medication, drug or alcohol addiction can also be stumbling blocks. The depth of hypnosis varies with a person's ability to respond. If you are not a naturally
responsive subject, you can improve your receptivity to hypnosis with practice.

It is thought that 90% of all people respond positively to Hypnosis.

Is hypnosis medically approved?
Yes. The American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association have approved hypnotherapy for use by professionally responsible individuals. The British
Medical Association also adopted hypnosis as a viable therapeutic tool in 1958. (The same year as the AMA.)

Is hypnosis dangerous?
No. The induction of hypnosis is never dangerous to the subject, although personal disappointments may arise because of unrealistic expectations or preconceived information.

Are the results of hypnosis permanent?
Suggestions stay with some individuals indefinitely, others need reinforcement. The effects of hypnosis are cumulative: The more the techniques are practiced and post-hypnotic suggestions are accepted, the more permanent the results become.

Self-hypnosis training and reinforcement tapes or CD's for home use also provide additional help. We can train you in self hypnosis and most of our hypnotherapy treatments include a free follow up CD.

How powerful is a hypnotist?
Hypnotherapy is a consent situation and has a lot to do with your personal commitment to make real changes in your life. It is not possible to hypnotise you against your will, or making
you do things which you normally would not do. Hypnotherapy is not something that can make you act against your personal moral conduct. As a female, if you are not sure or feel vulnerable, please feel free to bring a friend.

THE simple act of becoming relaxed can have surprising health benefits, new research is showing. In addition to the obvious psychological effects of relieving stress and mental tension, the new findings indicate, deep relaxation, if practiced regularly, can strengthen the immune system and produce a host of other medically valuable physiological changes.

In asthmatics, for example, relaxation training has been found to widen restricted respiratory passages. In some diabetics, relaxation can reduce the need for insulin. In many patients with chronic, unbearable pain, the training has brought about significant relief.

Moreover, the research shows, relaxation may help ward off disease by making people less susceptible to viruses, and by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Although such benefits have long been associated with meditation, a particular form of relaxation, the experimental evidence available now is much stronger than it was for meditation a few years ago. In addition, any form of deep relaxation seems to bring these benefits.

The medical advantages are not from ordinary relaxing activities, such as catnaps or gardening, but from intensive techniques that allow people to evoke a specific physiological state. ''Just sitting quietly or, say, watching television, is not enough to produce the physiological changes,'' said Herbert Benson, director of the Division of Behavioural Medicine at Beth Israel Hospital, a part of Harvard Medical School in Boston. ''You need to use a relaxation technique that will break the train of everyday thought, and decrease the activity of the sympathetic nervous system.''

Ancient and Modern Methods

Like meditation and yoga, some of the relaxation techniques being used are quite ancient, like Yoga Nidra. Others, like biofeedback or progressive muscle relaxation, are relatively new. And some, like repetitive prayer, may seem worlds away from medicine. All of the techniques, though, seem to evoke a single physiological state that Dr. Benson some years ago called the ''relaxation response.''

The findings have led many hospitals to teach their patients ways to relax as part of their medical treatment. In some hospitals physicians can now prescribe a relaxation program that is broadcast on televisions in hospital rooms, so that patients can learn the techniques from their hospital beds.

''More and more doctors are seeing the value of these techniques as a way to tap the inner capacity of patients to help with their own healing,'' said Jon Kabat-Zinn, director of the Stress Reduction and Relaxation Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester. Patients are taught to meditate on their breathing, and are led in scanning the sensations throughout their bodies. Fight-or-Flight Syndrome. See also  Yogic Sleep Relaxation one of the best deep relaxation CDs available.

The sympathetic nervous system reacts to stress by secreting hormones that mobilize the body's muscles and organs to face a threat. Sometimes called the ''fight-or-flight response,'' this mobilization includes a variety of biological responses, including shifting blood flow from the limbs to the organs and increased blood pressure. The stress response does not require an emergency; it can be triggered merely by everyday worries and pressures.

In contrast, the relaxation response releases muscle tension, lowers blood pressure and slows the heart and breath rates.

The new work is showing that along with these changes come shifts in hormone levels that seem to produce beneficial effects on the immune system. For example, relaxation training in medical students during exams was found to increase their levels of helper cells that defend against infectious disease, according to a report in the current issue of the Journal of Behavioural Medicine.

The degree of benefits depends on the rigor with which people use the relaxation techniques. Those medical students who used the techniques just a few times showed little or no changes in the immune measure. Those who did the exercises most faithfully had the strongest immune effects, according to the report by Janice Kiecolt-Glaser and Ronald Glaser of the Ohio State University College of Medicine at Columbus.

In another study, the Ohio State researchers taught relaxation techniques to residents of a retirement home, whose average age was 74 years. After a month of training their levels of natural killer cells and antibody titers - indicators of resistance to tumours and viruses - had improved significantly, according to a report in Health Psychology.

''These improvements are particularly important for the elderly, since the immune system weakens with aging,'' Dr. Kiecolt-Glaser said. Cardiovascular Problems Abate

Much interest in the medical use of relaxation has been for patients suffering from cardiovascular problems. A report in the British Medical Journal, for example, reported that patients who had been trained to relax significantly lowered their blood pressure, and had maintained that reduction four years later.
