Whether it is sipping on herbal tea before sleep or meditating for a few minutes, people all over the world are using alternative methods for relaxation and stress relief. Traditional stress medications come with a long list of side effects. So it is no wonder that people are turning to less damaging, but equally effective alternatives.
Hypnosis is a great way to bring about a state of relaxation and relief from stress.
Hypnosis is often seen as a type of relaxation, but they’re not exactly the same. Hypnosis can be a relaxation state, but not necessarily. What hypnosis really is, is a heightened state of attention. It is this heightened state that leads to several physiological and psychological changes that can be used for positive behavioral training. It is similar to the REM or rapid eye movement state during sleep which governs the dreaming experience.
There are certain experiences that can be highly emotionally hypnotic, but not relaxing. Extreme pain, anger, depression, fear, lust etc. are hypnotic states, but they are not relaxation states.
While hypnosis by definition is not relaxation, therapeutic hypnosis can be used to attain states of profound relaxation. By linking the right state of mind to the right activity, hypnosis can get a person to naturally feel happy, confident, and relaxed.
Different Kinds Of Stresses
Life today is very hectic, and brings with it multiple types of stresses. One of the more common types of stress is related to time, that there are not enough hours in the day. You are driven by the external clock, at the cost of neglecting your own sophisticated internal biological clock.
The natural ultradian rhythm, or the switching of dominant brain function from the right hemisphere to the left every 90 min or so, is designed to maintain us in a state of optimum relaxation. If the switching doesn’t happen, then the stress hormones are released. Of course it is not practical to take a power nap every 90 minutes, but if you keep pushing yourself all the time, you will find that you are in a constant state of stress.
The media is also another source of great stress. TV, radio, and newspapers deliberately use great emotion to capture your attention. Food manufacturers use addictive substances to keep you hooked. The news that you see every day on TV can make you feel worried, threatened, and unsafe.
Is it any wonder that people are highly stressed out and really need to relax?
Get Your Joy Back With Relaxation
When you’re able to relax deeply, you get your brain and your joy back. A deep sense of calm will restore your ability for planning, complex learning, and more efficient processing of the world. Relaxation can help you in different ways.
- It will reduce the heart rate and give the heart arrest
- It will reduce the blood pressure
- It increases blood circulation
- It allows the emotional parts of the brain to rest, enabling the thinking brain to work efficiently
- It decreases muscular tension
When you’re relaxed, you will have more energy, improved immunity, better sleep, enhanced concentration, and problem-solving abilities.
Hypnosis Will Make It Work
During hypnosis, you are in a highly suggestible state. A competent hypnotherapist can help you sink into deep relaxation by making you receptive to suggestions about taking life easy, and reducing the amount of fear, pain, and discomfort associated with daily activities.
The impulsive “anxiety reaction” can be replaced with a “relaxation reaction” at the hands of a skillful hypnotherapist. A few sessions of hypnotherapy will teach you how to be calm and happy even in highly stressful situations.
