I hope you will take time to explore this website.
This website was created to provide visitors the opportunity to learn more
about clinical hypnosis. As you read on, you will learn ways in which
clinical hypnosis can be helpful in the treatment of a variety of physical,
psychological, and emotional conditions and problems. You will also get and
idea of conditions and problems
which are currently being treated with clinical hypnosis for children,
adolescents, and adults.
And, importantly, you will learn where to find a licensed professional
with training in hypnosis. The most qualified professionals are trained by
hypnosis organizations which hold the highest standards for education in
hypnosis: the American society for clinical hypnosis
(ASCH) the society for clinical experimental hypnosis
(SCEH), and the international society for
hypnosis (ISH). Members of these organizations include physicians, dentists,
psychologists, clinical social workers, and many other licensed professionals in health
and mental health settings. For more information about where to find
licensed professional trained in clinical, see
hypnosis links for the societies in this paragraph.
During the past ten years or so, brain imaging technology has become more
detailed and sophisticated.
Researchers can now use advanced imaging, such as functional magnetic resonance
imaging (fMRI) for capturing images of actual changes in brain activity while subjects
are undergoing hypnosis. With this newer technology, researchers can provide valid
scientific evidence of the effects of hypnosis in specific areas in the brain.
Prior to today's advance technology, research evidence for clinical hypnosis was mostly anecdotal.
While compelling, most early studies in hypnosis failed to provide actual scientific evidence
that was measurable and reliable. However, with more sophisticated technology, hypnosis
is providing evidence, much of which has come from scientific studies in the field of pain
I am encouraged by the recent research on hypnosis because the data provide compelling evidence
of what clinicians witness consistently in their work: That hypnosis is a
powerful tool for accessing the mind to influence the cognitive, emotional, and physical
parts of the self.
I am pleased to share my knowledge of clinical
hypnosis, and most importantly, express how clinical hypnosis is being
utilized by clinicians in a variety ways to help individuals heal!
Also, I want to take this opportunity to present
my approach I have
developed for mind-body healing through clinical hypnosis, which also
incorporates brainwave entrainment.
