Hypnosis The concept and its healing powers
Understanding what is hypnosis.
The term “hypnosis” finds its origins in the greek word ????? (hypno?) which translates to “put to sleep”. Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving unwavering attention and a reduced sense of peripheral awareness. It also enhances the ability to respond to suggestions. It heightens the concentration of a person and allows her/him to single-mindedly focus on a single memory or thought.
The Oxford dictionary defines hypnosis as, “the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person apparently loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction. Its use in therapy, typically to recover suppressed memories or to allow modification of behavour, has been revived but is still controversial”.
When hypnotism is put to use in curing and healing patients with its therapeutic uses, it is referred to as “hypnotherapy”; and when it is used to entertain the audiences by a stage artist, it becomes “stage hypnosis”.
Now let's elaborate on hypnotherapy and its uses.
Hypnotherapy is gaining grounds and is now being used all over the world to treat various medical problems, especially psychological disorders. It is now a proper systematic method being used by licensed physicians and psychologists to treat their patients suffering from anxiety, depression, sleep and eating disorders etc.
It uses hypnosis to put the patients in a trance-like state where they become highly aware and focused. Hypnotherapists use guided relaxation and acute concentration to achieve the hypnotic state, which helps in healing the patients.
