What is hypnosis?
There is always confusion about what hypnosis is. And it’s not surprising. Commonly, someone’s experience with hypnosis is limited to what they’ve seen on TV, in the movies, or at a stage hypnosis show. While stage hypnosis can be entertaining and fun to watch, It may take away from the benefits and contributes to the misperception of ‘mind control.’
There are times that you have experienced the hypnotic state, even though you didn’t realize it at the time. ow. As adults, we slip into daydreaming, or we space out while driving. During these periods our conscious analytical mind is not engaged in analysis and reasoning. This is the same brainwave state associated with hypnosis. Other times you may experience this state are when you practice meditation or guided visualization. The intent is what makes hypnosis different. In hypnosis, we use this heightened suggestibility to introduce new thoughts and ideas around habits, beliefs, and sensations to create a desired, targeted outcome.
Who can benefit from hypnosis?
Many people ask if hypnosis can cure or treat disease. Hypnosis is an effective tool to aid in reducing the effects of stress, negative thinking, and behaviors that can aggravate the physical illness. Hypnosis in and of itself does not cure, treat, or prevent any illness or disease. But the scientific evidence is clear that if stress is an aggravating factor in disease, hypnosis has demonstrated a beneficial effect.
Concerns that hypnosis may benefit include difficulty falling asleep, business mindset blocks, procrastination, confidence, sugar “addiction”, chronic pain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), extreme fears, and the more commonly recognized smoking and weight loss. If it’s bothering you and willpower isn’t working, then hypnosis may be the answer you’re looking for.
Hypnosis is not a panacea and it isn’t for everyone. Like other approaches, when you work with a hypnotist, it is a partnership. Hypnosis does not rob you of your free will or choice. It is not magic. There is no invisible arm that is going to reach out and push your hand away from your face if you leave a hypnosis session and decide to light up a cigarette to “test the hypnosis and see if it worked.” Hypnosis makes it easy for you to simply forget about the cigarettes or if you have a thought of one you simply do not care about it.
5-PATH as an advanced form of hypnosis:
The 5-Path method of hypnosis is a unique form of hypnosis. It was created by world-renowned hypnotherapist Cal Banyan. It is a highly effective approach to conducting hypnotherapy and is practiced by a growing number of specially trained hypnotherapists worldwide.
So, what makes it different than other approaches to hypnosis? It is progression based. Each step has a criterion that has to be met before going to the next step. It is a multi-session method that works at getting to the core of the issue the client wants to be resolved. While a usual treatment plan is four to six sessions, sometimes patients are able to resolve issues, such as smoking, in just one or two sessions.
Most importantly, 5-PATH hypnotists have been trained to find the actual cause of the problem and eliminate it, and then give the clients suggestions for success.
