Hypnotherapy is also known as hypnosis and it is a method or a therapy in which the therapist will create a trance like or dream like state of deep relaxation for the person taking the therapy, so that they can heal the person of psychological or emotional problems. This hypnotherapy has been performed and practised in many cultures for 1000s of years including the Egyptian culture, the Celtic culture and the Druid culture. In the 19th and 20th centuries, hypnotherapy (a.k.a. also known as) hypnosis was simply seen as a curiosity. But at present, in the 21st century hypnosis is seen by the scientific community as an efficacious healing method/treatment. Though, it is not a treatment in its own right, but it is used in the medical, psychological and other forms of treatment.

The cerebrum (a.k.a. brain) has distinct levels of consciousness or awareness – ranging from a completely alert state to drowsy or completely sleepy state with alterations in between. Hypnotic state is a state that will happen naturally and randomly. Some of the examples are – day dreaming, being glued in present work & losing track of time, doing a easy task like washing utensils while thinking something else– & it goes to such a degree that you don’t remember performing the task.
Clinical Hypnosis & Hypnotic State –
Some other state of being hypnotic is getting lulled into a state of dream, due to boredom for instance, seeing something dull in a T.V. In a clinical hypnosis one can get induced to this kind of relaxed state of awareness. Once your mind, during the therapy gets into a relaxed state any therapeutic advises can have a great effect on the attitude, behaviour and perceptions. The way it happens is not completely understood. There are some researchers who believe that hypnosis indorses a specific kind of brain wave activity which permits the mind to take in and accept new ideas, while others have this opinion that, hypnosis uses the unconscious mind, which is more open to new suggestions and ideas than the rational conscious mind. Also, during the time of hypnosis you are completely in control of your mind, so even if you don’t like suggestions you don’t have to accept it. Hypnotherapy or hypnosis is something that cannot be done against your will, unless and until you allow it to happen. In a hypnotherapy, you cannot be hypnotised to do things against your will.
What Are the Risks Involved in Hypnosis & Results –
When a hypnotherapy is performed by a qualified and experienced and certified practitioner like the ones mentioned above, then it is a safe treatment. But in a very rare cases, one gets the side effects like dizziness, headache, feelings of anxiety, stomach upset, & false memories. Another thing that you should know about hypnosis is that, hypnosis doesn’t always bring positive results or good results. Hypnosis doesn’t work for everyone. For instance, a patient suffering from psychosis should not be hypnotized. Research suggests that, individuals are born with character traits which permit hypnosis to work, while other researchers suggest that, ability to be hypnotized is a skill that is learned.
