Self-Hypnosis Is Just Deep, Natural Relaxation

Hypnosis activates your natural healing process. It mobilizes the subconscious mind (the body’s autonomic nervous system) to do the healing. Hypnosis doesn’t do the healing, it is a technique that actives your own natural healing potential.
“I found that many complaints – smoking, overeating, test anxiety, public speaking phobia, and chronic physical pain – responded more dramatically to hypnosis than to other forms of psychotherapy I was using.”
Dr. Deirdre Barrett, Ph.D., Psychologist | Faculty at Harvard Medical School

ANXIETY RELIEF WITH HYPNOSIS
There are certainly times when the stress response is necessary.
But the stress response is an auxiliary system and to turn on it needs to pull power and energy from other systems of the body like your immune system.
Case in point, in research published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, hypnosis and related visualization techniques where shown to actually prevent the weakening of the immune response that often follows periods of acute stress.
Medical and dental students who were about to take exams and under tremendous amounts of stress were taught self-hypnosis, so doing hypnotherapy on themselves after some training.
In the study the control group, subjects who had not used self-hypnosis as a relaxation technique prior to their stressful event, they showed a 24 percent decrease in T-cell count compared to a 2 percent increase in the hypnosis group – T cells = T-Lymphocyte white blood cells are important to the immune response.
The investigators found that during acute stress during exam time, the self-hypnosis students exhibited stronger immune responses compared with students who did not learn the technique.
Amazingly, the more often students practiced the relaxation strategy, the stronger their immune response became.
Take time every day to rest your body and mind. We are in very stressful times so it is very important for the health of your body, mind and nervous system to take time for rest and exercise.
