Studies Show Hypnosis is Effective

“There are many myths about hypnosis, mostly coming from media presentations,” like fictional films and novels, says Irving Kirsch, a lecturer, and director of the Program in Placebo Studies at Harvard Medical School. Setting aside pop-culture banalities, Kirsch also says hypnosis is a well-studied and legitimate form of adjunct treatment for conditions ranging from obesity and pain after surgery to anxiety and stress. Here at Terramind, we practice hypnosis safely in a comfortable environment and we will use hypnosis in conjunction with other modalities to heal your current state of mind.

The sooner you realize you must following your hypnotherapist’s directions the faster you will enter into a deeply relaxing state. The more you relax the deeper you go into trance. When you are in trance you bypass your critical faculty (the part of you that differentiates between reality and fantasy.) Bypassing your “critical thinker” mind, your conscious mind, you become suggestable. Linguistically designed suggestions tailored to your needs will be deeply embedded in your Unconscious Mind. These suggestions will act as your own and your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors will adjust according to these suggestions.

Hypnosis In Our Office

For you to be hypnotized, you must be intelligent enough to follow directions. For you to ‘close your eyes, and relax your muscles around your eyes so that they are so relaxed you cannot open them, no matter how hard you try’… is a suggestion. Who has to close your eyes? Can you not close them if you want to? Of course. Stare right at your hypnotherapist with wide-open eyes, and you will prove that you are not able to follow simple directions. You can as well say ‘I cannot be hypnotized because I choose not to follow your directions.’ Great. You missed the point. The point is that you and your hypnotherapist want the same exact thing: your problem to disappear.

Hypnosis Becomes More Effective with Time

The effectiveness of hypnosis in our practice increases with the number of sessions. The average is about 6 sessions for a problem to release. There is no box to check and tell for sure how many sessions you need. You are unique. Your recovery speed is unique to you too.

“Individual differences in hypnotic susceptibility and absorption have typically been found to predict efficacy.” ~

You are a special human being with unique neurology and a vivid past that nobody else shares with you. We can only promise one thing for you; you will feel at ease and a whole lot better after your first session.

Hypnosis for Reducing PTSD, Stress, and Anxiety

Entering a deeply relaxing state with a  hypnotic induction followed by hypnotic suggestions can be very helpful in treating stress, anxiety, and PTSD. As little as one session can help a person to feel an undeniable release of past negative experiences. Current clients are describing these fast results as being “surreal”.

It is indeed beyond what the current medical belief system accepts. How fast someone can heal from past trauma though depends on the client’s susceptibility and the skills of the hypnotherapist. As change providers at Terramind, we believe in the complete recovery of our clients. Our beliefs are supporting healing because of our view of thoughts are being things.

Viral Infection Susceptibility Reduction (COVID-19 Infection Reduction)

With the powerful relaxation techniques of hypnosis, we can even alter a person’s immune system functions. The effectiveness of hypnosis lays in the immense stress reduction that is happening during sessions.

Since the stress response in the body radically reduced with deep relaxation, the body’s immune system immediately kicks into overdrive.  The corresponding research is found HERE.

What does Hypnosis Entail

There are no two hypnotherapists who would answer the same way to these questions. As hypnotherapists, we agree on the two stages of hypnosis; “induction” and “suggestion.” The induction part helps with the deep relaxation and the suggestion part is where the hypnotherapist guides the thoughts, feelings, or behaviors.

You are in control and you are protected by your unconscious mind. One of the main functions of your unconscious mind is to protect the integrity of your mind and body. You cannot be suggested something that is in conflict with the morals and values you were taught as a child. This Prime Directive of the Unconscious Mind will stand guard at all times. You are in trained hands at Terramind Center of Healing Arts. You are safe and secure.
