ARTICLE ON HYPNOSIS
Printed in Employee Magazine, December 1996

Have you ever watched a stage hypnosis show? They are very funny. But afterward, you may have wondered why anyone would volunteer to look so silly. And beyond
Take Care Hypnotherapy Logo that, what practical, therapeutic application is there for hypnosis?  First, let's dispel any negative ideas you may have from seeing a stage hypnosis show. Stage show volunteers make a subconscious agreement to go into trance by the very act of volunteering. There are always one or two who volunteer to prove that hypnosis will not work for them, but a good stage hypnotist will spot them.

If the subjects act silly during a show they can blame the hypnotist, "He made me do it!" Whether they realize it consciously or not, they were perfectly willing (at some level) to do whatever was suggested or they would not have done it!

The number one fear people have about hypnosis is thinking that they will be out of control. If I could use hypnosis to control others, I would have the world's most cooperative teenager. He would cheerfully do the dishes and empty the trash. Naturally, he'd get straight As and never talk back. Hypnotherapist would make a fortune turning the rest of the world's teens into perfect specimens!

The truth is that you are in complete control during a hypnotic trance. No one can hypnotize you against your will and no one can make you do anything that goes against your morals, beliefs, ethics or principles while in a hypnotic trance. If you find a suggestion to be offensive, you can simply bring yourself back to full awareness. You are able to lie while in trance, so you are unlikely to tell the hypnotherapist your deepest secrets.

Hypnosis is simply a natural state of deep physical and mental relaxation. We pass through the hypnotic state daily as we go to sleep at night and as we awaken in the morning. We are often in a light hypnotic trance when we are engrossed in reading a good book or watching a movie. And we certainly experience highway hypnosis when we are driving that same stretch of road for the 1,000th time! How many of you have noticed that you sometimes lose your awareness of time and your surroundings while driving?

Benefits abound during a hypnotic trance. For example, 15 minutes of hypnosis is equal to an hour of deep, restful sleep. A two hour afternoon nap can be accomplished with a 30 minute trance. A relaxed person accomplishes twice the work of a tense, nervous person with half the effort.

There are many uses for hypnosis. The two which have received the most attention are smoking cessation and weight reduction. 30% of the people who use hypnosis to stop smoking never think about cigarettes again! And as most of us already know, diets do not work. Hypnosis works to uncover and eliminate the underlying cause of the excess weight.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool for self-improvement because it helps us tap our inner resources. Each of us has the answers to our problems within our subconscious. Hypnosis creates a bridge from the conscious mind to the subconscious. Your answers are then easily accessed.

I am often asked what issues interest people who seek help from a hypnotherapist. There is an endless list of areas that can be addressed with hypnotherapy besides smoking and weight loss. Clients often wish to work on improving self-esteem, enhancing creativity, improving sports performance, relieving insomnia, tapping into their spirituality, overcoming issues of codependency, and for healing past traumas, to name just a few. I always recommend that my clients learn self hypnosis. It reinforces the work from their private sessions and speeds their recovery process. At the same time it will reduce their stress immensely.

During hypnosis you are tapping into the power of your subconscious. The subconscious accepts suggestions without evaluating or analyzing. New positive information can easily be added and our experience of life permanently altered. The subconscious cannot tell the difference between a visualization and an actual event. We can visualize what we want in a given situation and the subconscious will match our inner reality (what we have imagined) to our outward experience.

You can use the power of your imagination to create coping strategies for whatever life hands you. For example, creating the image in your mind of a beautiful garden or a tropical island during an dental visit would be an excellent way of coping with a potentially unpleasant activity.

Take a moment right now to think of an area in your life which could be improved through positive programming and deep relaxation. My clients consistently report that they sleep more soundly and they are better able to cope with stress following their sessions.  These are just two side benefits to resolving core issues permanently with hypnotherapy.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE:
As most of you know, I am originally from the great state of Massachusetts.  My daughter has now taken my place in the United States Army (:P) so I felt that it was time for me to "go home". 
I have finally sold my home and have moved back to Massachusetts.   Those who have seen me as private patients can still be helped by me via email.  Those Hypno-band® patients that still have their last visit can contact me regarding your final CD.  To all my other private patients, if you would like me to continue working with you, I can get the information I need from you and record a CD specific to your needs.

You can still (for the time being) contact me at 210-473-1825.

Also, you can continue to reach me at donnasaystakecare@yahoo.com.

Additionally, you can reach me at my home phone 978-455-6706.

I have enjoyed working with you all and I am confident you will continue your hard work.  Please know that I will always be available for any questions or concerns you might have.
