Healing Trauma with Hypnosis

Healing Trauma with Hypnosis and Reconnecting with Old Friends We all have trauma, and we all have a past. And while this trauma may have occurred in the past, so too did many positive aspects of your life, such as building bonds with friends throughout your formative years. In this article, we'll cover how healing traumatic memories through hypnosis (coupled with re-forging friendships) can help you lay a solid foundation for your overall emotional health. How To Reconnect As an adult, you may wonder how you can reconnect with your old friends from high school or college. These are the people who supported you at your worst and watched you grow into your best. Although you may have lost touch, re-creating these connections can help you feel validated, secure, and like you belong. Importantly, the time spent walking down memory lane will be a great distraction, and you never know when you’ll reconnect with someone who’s had a similar life experience. Use social media or online alumni sites to reach out to people that mean something to you and whom you wish to reinstate into your life. The Benefit Of Re-Strengthening Old Bonds There are social benefits of reconnecting, especially if you’ve recently moved back to your hometown after a divorce or the death of a spouse. Having these familiar faces around will help you settle back into your life while you gain perspective on your shared experiences and unique trauma. Having people around that have known you throughout your lifetime, and that knew you before your most dramatic experiences can help you pull the strength you had before so that you can let go of your current negativity. Using Hypnosis to Overcome Trauma Hypnosis has been used successfully in therapeutic settings for more than a century and a half. [...]

Quit Smoking Improves Sexual Performance

Quitting smoking improves sexual performance According to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, men who smoke cigarettes are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction than non-smokers. This is because smoking can damage blood vessels and reduce blood flow to the penis. In addition, smoking can cause a condition known as “smoker’s penis,” which refers to the narrowing and hardening of blood vessels in the penis, leading to a reduced ability to achieve and maintain an erection. If you're a smoker who is experiencing problems with sexual performance, it's important to take action to quit smoking. Hypnosis is one method that has been shown to be effective in helping people quit smoking. In this article, we will explore how hypnosis can help you quit smoking and improve your sexual performance. HOW DOES HYPNOSIS HELP YOU QUIT SMOKING? Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility that allows you to access your subconscious mind. During a hypnosis session, a hypnotherapist will guide you into a trance-like state, where you will be more receptive to positive suggestions and ideas. Hypnosis can help you quit smoking by: Addressing the underlying reasons for smoking Replacing smoking with healthier habits Reducing stress and anxiety Hypnosis can also help you reframe your thinking about smoking, so you no longer see cigarettes as a desirable or necessary part of your life.

Hypnosis can also be used to improve your sexual performance by reducing anxiety and increasing confidence.

Hypnosis, and the possibility to manage pain

The idea of using hypnosis for pain relief may seem mysterious, but it is no longer considered a myth. Pain is a complex experience produced by various parts of the central nervous system, not just tissue damage. Hypnosis, as a psychological technique, can alter pain perception by modifying activity in the brain and spinal cord. What is hypnosis, and how does it work? During a hypnosis session, a trained professional induces a trance-like state of heightened concentration and then uses suggestions to improve the patient's emotional or physical well-being. Studies have shown that hypnosis is effective in reducing pain, but the exact mechanism is not yet fully understood. Research suggests that hypnosis alters pain perception by changing activity in brain areas associated with pain processing. This can be seen by inducing pain with hypnotic suggestion and measuring brain activity. In one study, participants reported experiencing pain when it was suggested under hypnosis, and brain scans showed patterns similar to those seen in real pain. Who can benefit from hypnosis? Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis than others. The level of hypnotic suggestibility can vary depending on individual and situational factors. However, the effectiveness of hypnosis in reducing pain has been shown in multiple studies. Medium-to-high suggestibility individuals can experience 29-42% reductions in pain, while low suggestibility individuals have minimal benefits of around 17%. (Refering link here) The importance of proper training and regulation It is important to note that hypnosis should only be conducted by legitimate clinicians who have been professionally trained to manage a given condition. Simply performing hypnosis is not enough to achieve pain relief, and health professionals must consider the type of pain and the patient's profile. Incorporating hypnosis into a comprehensive treatment plan Pain is a complex phenomenon that requires a multifaceted approach. Hypnosis can [...]

Can People Really Change?

Can People Really Change? The purpose of this article is to provide a context to understanding how people can change. How much can a person change? As a hypnotist I get asked to help people make changes in their lives. The changes I'm asked to help with vary in size, depth and dimension. Here is a list of things I've been asked to to help people change: Quit smoking Improve eating habits Stop abusing alcohol Build a Feeling of Confidence Improve athletic performance ... the list goes on... In spite of the amazing changes I've seen people make, I still wonder "Can People Really Change"? The Ship of Theseus The Ship of Theseus is a thought experiment about whether an object (or person) that has had all of its original components replaced remains the same object (or person). If a car continues to be repaired until all it's original parts are replaced is it the same car? Likewise, is a person who committed a horrific crime in their youth still the same person at the age of 80? That final questions goes to the heart of our personal ability to see people as more than an accumulation of actions. No Simple Answers One way of addressing the question is to agree that a person is different/more than all their components and all their history of actions and behaviors. My personal experience is that a person can be identified for having done something good or bad in their life but they should be seen as something more. I'm Not That Person Anymore Years ago I used to smoke. I quit many times but would start back up after a few weeks. How I finally quit was not about changing my behavior, but changing how I thought of myself. As much as [...]

Hypnosis Can Reduce Kratom Cravings

People use Kratom for relaxation, pain relief, anxiety, and several other reasons. In fact, in higher dosages, it is often used as a substitute for opioid drugs like morphine and heroin because it carries the same effect on the brain receptors. Unfortunately, like opioids, Kratom can also contain addictive properties, which you should be wary about.  Intolerance, dependency and cravings are some side effects that can come with using Kratom and can later lead to psychological and physical withdrawal when you eventually choose to stop using it. Though because of its easy availability, people may opt to take it to avoid symptoms of more severe opioid withdrawal.  What is Kratom? Kratom (Mitragyna speciose) belongs to the Rubiaceae (coffee) family. It is an evergreen herb found in the region of Southeast Asia and Africa. At low dosages, it makes users more active and energized. In contrast, higher dosages relieve pain, but taking above the recommended amount may lead to Kratom acting as a sedative, causing drowsiness and users to fall silent.  Symptoms of Kratom are usually not as severe as that of opioids. However, some signs to watch out for are: blurred vision, fever, seizures, muscle aches, and anxiety. The risk of becoming dependent on Kratom increases with the dosage. Usually, more than 5 grams or more than once a day will start giving unfavorable effects in the long run.  Everyone is different, and everyone who takes Kratom doesn't need to experience withdrawal after its discontinuation. Though more than often, you might get cravings and to counteract these effects, specialized hypnosis methods have become widely used. Does Hypnosis Work? The quick answer to that question is: yes. Many studies have shown the effectiveness of hypnosis in treating several medical conditions. Adding hypnosis to other methods only strengthens its ability to help people [...]
