Medical hypnosis with many possibilities
Hypnosis has long been established as a form of treatment in medicine. But numerous prejudices persist. Experts keep trying to invalidate them, for example on the occasion of World Hypnosis Day.
Regain control of your body Let an old man with a whiskered beard and a piercing gaze treat you in front of the audience with a pendulum so long that you end up biting an onion or otherwise monkeying yourself. With such clichés of dangerous hocus-pocus hypnosis, Olf Stoiber, chairman of the German Association for Hypnosis, wants to finally clear up. On the occasion of yesterday's 10th World Hypnosis Day, the Munich hypnotherapist said: “Many people believe that hypnosis makes people wantless. In fact, the opposite is true: hypnosis helps you regain control of your own body. ”
Hypnotherapy can be used in many areas The majority of his clients, whom Stoiber deliberately does not call patients, come to him because they have lost control of themselves. "Be it because of depression, anxiety or addiction to nicotine. After successful therapy, the client has more power over their own thinking, feeling and acting. ”Hypnotherapy, a hybrid form of hypnosis and psychotherapy that combines elements from both areas, is now used in many areas. “A large area is health prophylaxis. This includes stress management, smoking cessation or the desire to lose weight. Psychotherapeutic hypnosis helps with depression, phobias and trauma, but is also often used when there is an unfulfilled desire to have children or births. ”
For births and visits to the dentist Even Duchess Kate used “hypnobirthing” last July when she gave birth to her little prince. It is a natural method in which various relaxation exercises serve to avoid all or part of the birth pain and to experience and enjoy the birth in a relaxed and conscious manner. But not only births, but also upcoming dental visits are a reason for many to try medical hypnosis. "The patient is given personal responsibility as part of hypnosis so that he can activate his self-healing powers," says dentist Allan Krupka, President of the Austrian Society for Medical and Dental Hypnosis (ÖGZH). "It is nothing other than directing the patient's attention from his fear to his internal resources."
It is still unclear what exactly causes hypnosis Experts continue to discuss what exactly causes hypnosis in the body. "It is clear that there is direct access to the subconscious," says Stoiber. "Hypnosis always goes hand in hand with mental rest." In principle, every person is suitable for doing hypnotherapy. "Provided you have a strong desire to change something." In this case, nothing stands in the way of a journey into the subconscious.
Hypnosis is one of the oldest treatment methods. Modern science first perceived hypnosis as a phenomenon over two centuries ago. The treatment itself is one of the oldest treatment methods. Step by step, this technique of suggestion finds its way into conventional medicine, where it is used, for example, for coping with stress or coping with pain. But it can also be used as a bleeding control in small and medium-sized operations. As part of hypnosis, patients are given verbal instructions, so-called suggestions, which are intended to act directly on the unconscious. A trance state is to be achieved, which should mobilize the patient's self-healing powers. The World Hypnosis Day has been taking place on January 4th every year since 2002. (ad)
