Hypnotherapy is a kind of psychotherapy which is used to create changes in the patient’s health while he/she is in the state of unconsciousness or sleep which is known as hypnosis state. The hypnotic state helps people to explore painful and suppressed feelings that are hidden in their conscious minds.
Once the mind is in a relaxed state, any therapeutic suggestions can have the greatest effect on attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors.
Some researchers say hypnotherapy promote particular brain wave activity that allows the patient’s mind to take in and adopt new ideas, while others suggest that hypnosis accesses the unconscious mind which is more open to new ideas than the rational conscious mind.
This change in consciousness that can often lead patients to experience things differently outside of hypnosis, such as criticism at work or home, stage fright, or even pain.
