Admit it; you’re rather skeptical, aren’t you? When someone arrives at your practice and asks for hypnotism in a medical setting, how do you respond? Or if your doctor offers you hypnosis to help alleviate your ailments. Does this sound strange to you? Okay! Yet – and many people are unaware of that – hypnosis has been used in a medical context for a long time and is now playing an increasingly important role. If we are going to prepare for surgery, support wound healing, or accompany classical therapy in case of severe diseases, then hypnosis is an all-around talent that has proven to be very helpful many times. It is, of course, nonsense to claim that only hypnosis can heal, but we will come to that shortly.
The Limits of Hypnosis
Are you skeptical about hypnosis methods? That is understandable. There are many healing claims that are false. Of course, a deep trance state can greatly advance healing, of course, fears can disappear into thin air, of course, less medication may be needed in the long term – but that doesn’t make hypnosis a miracle cure.
Instead, it is a healthy interaction between hypnotherapist and client or patient that makes hypnosis in a medical context so successful.
Most importantly, it is not up to any hypnotherapist to diagnose or recommend for or against medical intervention or medication – this is always at the discretion of medical professionals.
A good hypnotherapist supports clients in the best possible way on their healing path and cooperates with classical therapy!
The possibilities of hypnosis
In practice, it is always possible to work preventively with hypnosis. For example, the preparation for operations, patient communication, or formulation of a diagnosis.
Supporting the patients, taking away fears, and accelerating therapy processes are all important fields to use hypnosis in. It often helps to get to the root of the problem and to solve it where it originated in the subconscious. OMNI hypnotherapists use cause-oriented, uncovering hypnosis.
It is neither rocket science nor esoteric nonsense to use hypnosis in medicine.
The OMNI Hypnosis Academy and Hypnosis in Science
By the way, we already set out on the path of making hypnosis scientifically tangible in 2018. OMNI Hypnosis has conducted a joint research project with the University of Zurich in the form of HypnoScience®. We aim to investigate the neurophysiological correlates of hypnosis and its substates with high-quality results. Such research is extremely important for the establishment of hypnosis in medicine.
The scientific publication of the results is still pending, but the researchers involved have already demonstrated that the data is robust.
