Hypnotheraphy has had the reputation of being a little "woo-woo" for quite some time. But studies have proven to be many times more effective than typical Behavioral Therapy or Psychoanalysis.
For example, hypnotherapy has a 93% success rate after only 6 sessions. Behavioral Therapy has a 72% success rate after 22 sessions. And only a 38% success rate with Psychotherapy after a whopping 600 sessions!
So why has it not gotten the attention that it deserves?
Here are some answers brought to you by Hypnosis Thailand.
Studies have shown that hypnotherapy can help a large variety of psychological issues as it helps patients to focus on their own mental resources. Other research has also suggested that the success rates are caused by the relaxation effects of hypnosis.
Yes. Hypnotic suggestions do alter your perceptions and sensations, example: Altering the perception of pain or mental thought. Brain activity studies have shown hypnotherapy alters the way how the brain processes information, and the clinical trials have shown that hypnosis is an effective treatment.
About 10% of people are extremely suggestible while about 80% are amenable to hypnosis. A small 10% of the population do not respond easily to hypnosis. More than likely you will be able to be hypnotized very easily.
No. Brain activity studies shown brain activity patterns with sleep differ with hypnosis. It may seem as if its sleep due to the usage of relaxation, but during hypnosis, people are more in a wake state.
No. You are in full control during hypnosis. Studies show that hypnotized subjects were unable to perform actions that would adversely affect themselves or went against their will.
During your hypnotherapy session, you will probably feel different than what others would feel. People have different reactions and body responses when instructed to relax by a trained hypnotherapist. Most people feel very focused and in the moment. There is a feeling of being in control during the therapy.
No. Because you are still under control, and in the moment you cannot be compelled to give up information you don’t want to, so what you see in the movies is basically not true.
Sometimes one session can fix your problems. It depends on how suggestible you are to hypnosis. Most hypnotherapists generally recommends a few sessions to help overcome your issue.
