Why You Should Consider Hypnotherapy
Anxiety disorders are nothing to be ashamed of, on the contrary, they re very common. Anxiety disorders come in variety of manifestations: generalized anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, phobias, panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders among others. While each type of anxiety has different symptoms, all have the same cause and that is overwhelming fear.
According to most mental health professionals, anxiety disorders are caused by both nature and nurture. Anxiety disorders are due to hereditary issues and also due to factors from the surrounding which cause certain fear in a person which causes a continuous cycle of worry. Hypnotherapy is a different way of curing anxiety which is tested and proven to be viable. This kind of therapy is conducted by a professional who is referred as a hypnotherapist.
Hypnotherapists use tricks capable of relaxing the patient and also achieve a trance state. This method of treatment when used in conjunction with the common medications.
Behaviours are gotten from memory when things happen in our lives, and our bodies react both physically and feeling wise. When the same similar situation happens in the future, we tend to respond with the same emotional reactions that are attached to our memory.
People with mental problems such as anxiety disorders and phobias mostly got this conditions from learned behaviours which are unhealthy. With certain types of hypnosis, the individual can be guided to recall the event or the situations which created the first reaction, and replace these unhealthy reactions or behaviours with new healthier ones separating the learned behavior from the memory.
A hypnotic state is said to be achieved when the patient’s body and minds are relaxed, and at this point, their blood flow and heartbeat is lower. When this relaxation of the mind occurs, this also changes certain brain wave activity which allows the individual to be more open to suggestions. This hypnotic state is very effective in allowing the ability to change an individuals perception as well as certain types of behavior such as smoking, and nail biting. Hypnotherapy has also been proven to be good for managing pain in patients with very severe pain by eliminating the pain awareness.
This kind of therapy helps one remember traumatizing things that occurred in their past which the person could not trace and was the source of their problem. In a relaxed hypnotized state, the event or situation may be revealed and the individual can then begin to receive psychotherapy treatment or these issues.
Hypnotherapy is not the most appropriate approach for individuals suffering from severe psychosis which involves distorted view of reality or it could be due to drug and substance abuse.
