World Hypnotism Day

Today is world hypnotism day! 
你对催眠了解多少呢?你知道它是一门古老又科学的治疗法吗?可否知晓奠定心理学朝向科学发展的先师Sigmund Freud从催眠理论中得到不少灵感吗?知道它目前是属于卫生部T&CM管辖范围的治疗法吗?你或许不晓得其历史甚至可以追溯到古埃及久远的治疗技术。

World Hypnotism Day is recognized each year on January 4th to help raise awareness of the almost-universal treatment option. World Hypnotism Day, January 4th, was established to help educate the general public of the truth and benefits the timeless and natural process of hypnotism has to offer anyone. Movies and books of fiction have warped the perception of hypnosis, which is why World Hypnotism Day is a necessity in order for more people to understand the truth and use this natural, expedient and effective process for personal change.

Misconceptions about Neuro-Hypnotherapy:
You will not become unconscious and you will be aware of everything at all times. Your will is not weakened in any way. You are in control and cannot be made to do anything against your will. You will not begin to reveal information you wish to keep secret. Hypnosis is not sleep.

One common misconception is that a hypnotized person loses their will and is partially or completely under the command of the hypnotist. Nothing could be further from the truth. This unfortunate belief is reinforced by many stage hypnotists. You are in control of yourself, and cannot be made to do anything that is against your will.

Hypnosis, particularly the deeper forms, can appear to be like sleep because the person's body is typically very still and quiet. All of our mind activity can be measured scientifically by utilizing an EEG biofeedback tool. With our Neuro-Hypnotherapy technology, you can scientifically see yourself going into states of “Alpha", "Theta", and "Delta”, and these three levels can be considered states or depths of Hypnosis.

Myth 1: When you wake up from neuro-hypnotherapy, you won’t remember anything that happened when you were hypnotized. 
While amnesia may occur in very rare cases, people generally remember everything that occurred while they were hypnotized. However, neuro-hypnotherapy can have a significant effect on memory. Posthypnotic amnesia can lead an individual to forget certain things that occurred before or during neuro-hypnotherapy. However, this effect is generally limited and temporary. 

Myth 2: You can be hypnotized against your will. 
Despite stories about people being hypnotized without their consent, neuro-hypnotherapy requires voluntary participation on the part of the patient. 

Myth 3: The clinical hypnotherapist has complete control of your actions while you’re under neuro-hypnotherapy. 
While people often feel that their actions under neuro-hypnotherapy seem to occur without the influence of their will, a hypnotist cannot make you perform actions that are against your values or morals. 

Myth 4: Many people wonder whether they can be hypnotized?
Generally speaking, every normal person is “hypnotizable.” Neuro-hypnotherapy has scientifically been proven through monitoring people’s brainwaves while they are hooked up to an EEG monitor. Neuro-hypnotherapy is the Alpha and Theta brainwave state. Because neuro-hypnotherapy is a brainwave state virtually anyone can achieve successful results using neuro-hypnotherapy.

Myth 5: Is Neuro-hypnotherapy Magic? 
Neuro-hypnotherapy is not magic. It is a trance state, which has at times has been misunderstood to the extent of being maligned. However, there is nothing supernatural about its practice, despite what some stage hypnotists might have you believe. Neuro-hypnotherapy should not be confused with stage hypnotism which at best is entertainment and at worst dangerous.

Myth 6: Does Neuro-hypnotherapy work? 
Success rates can be between 85% and 90%+ better than CBT or traditional techniques.
According to the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis,
Home Study Self-Hypnosis : 2 – 5% success rate
Group Hypnosis Session: 2 – 5% success rate
Single Individual Session: 17 – 20% success rate
Three Individual Sessions: 45 – 50% success rate
Five or More Individual Sessions: 85 – 90% success rate 

Dr Alfred A. Barrios conducted a longitudinal survey of the psychotherapeutic literature and discovered the following success rates for hypnotherapy versus therapeutic methods:
Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions 
Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions 
Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions 
The researchers also discovered that customizing and individualizing the sessions increased the effectiveness of the sessions dramatically.

Myth 7: What is the unconscious mind?
Your brain is just like an iceberg.
The part that's visible (above the surface) is your conscious mind,
and the part that's hidden (below the surface) is your unconscious mind.
"The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water." 
By Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis.

Your behavior is driven by your unconscious mind (emotional factors) rather than your own conscious mind (cognitive factors).
Neuro-Hypnotherapy works on your unconscious mind level.
Skillful clinical hypnotherapist able to deal with your emotional factors and then create a life you desire.

For example:
We all consciously know smoking is bad for us, but why people still smoke?
The part of you that won't let you stop smoking is your unconscious mind.
The secret to change is to reprogram your unconscious mind. 
I can create a bridge between the conscious mind and unconscious mind so that positive suggestions can be communicated to your unconscious mind.
