What are the benefits of hypnosis?
A better question is what are the potential benefits of hypnosis. Hypnotherapy or the use of hypnosis for therapeutic benefits can have profound effects on your well-being, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will discuss the potential benefits of hypnosis in just a moment.
Before we look at the benefits that can be gained from hypnosis it is important to point out that simply going into a hypnotic state does not necessarily bring any benefits at all. A lot depends on the intent of both the therapist and the hypnosis client. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are powerful modalities but like any therapeutic technique it must be properly used to get the maximum benefits.
So assuming you are working with a capable, trustworthy therapist what are the benefits that you can expect from a hypnosis session?
Benefits of Hypnosis – Deep Relaxation
A benefit you should expect from any good hypnosis session is a deep state of relaxation. The deep relaxation that is common in hypnosis sessions is a refreshing change from the rampant anxiety and high stress levels plaguing modern society. A good hypnosis session is like a deep relaxing meditation. It allows the nervous system to take a well earned rest and the body mind is able to redirect nervous energy to important healing tasks. It is common to awaken fro a hypnosis session and feel like you had the best rest in years.
Benefits of Hypnosis – Release Unwanted Habits
Another powerful benefit of hypnosis is the ability to release unwanted habits quickly and easily. Whether you want to quit smoking, stop overeating or let go of that annoying nail biting, hypnosis can help. Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool in releasing unwanted habits. When releasing undesirable habits they should always be replaced with an empowering habit and associated beliefs as leaving a vacuum will encourage the unwanted beliefs and habits to return.
Benefits of Hypnosis – Let go of Painful Emotions stored in the Nervous System
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to allow us to let go of outdated anger, sadness, grief and other debilitating emotions and trauma stored in our nervous system. In the short term you can expect to feel an incredible sense of freedom and peacefulness as well as increased energy levels.
In the long term your life can take an incredible U-turn as you embrace life fully again and take advantage of the many opportunities life present without being held back by trauma stored in the nervous system.
Few people fully appreciate the hold their past has on them. Hypnotherapy can help you to fully enjoy the present as you make peace with your past.
Benefits of Hypnosis – Replace Limiting Beliefs With Empowering Beliefs
Your beliefs determine your actions and your actions determine your results. If you believe something is impossible you won’t even try or at least only try half-heartedly.
A good belief system is a great asset to have. Empowering beliefs literally drive us to be successful while limiting beliefs hold us back like a chain and ball.
Hypnotherapy is highly effective in replacing limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs. By working directly with the unconscious mind we can turbo charge the therapeutic results.
So now you have a pretty good idea about some of the amazing benefits that hypnosis can offer. My suggestion is to find a good therapist and give it a go.
