Hypnotherapy with Melinda
The word hypnosis originates from the Greek word hypnos, which means sleep. Dr. James Braid, a Scottish physician and surgeon specializing in eye and muscular conditions, is regarded as the "Father of Modern Hypnotism." He used the term hypnotism as an abbreviation for the term "neuro-hypnotism", which is sleep of the nerves. By entering a state of relaxation and quieting the nerves, an individual's subconscious may be accessed unfettered by his or her ego. In this relaxed state, it is also possible to access seemingly innocent past events that have negatively affected one's adult life.
In a therapeutic setting, a hypnotherapist can focus on the role of the subconscious and how familial experiences can influence present behavior. Through this recognition, the subconscious is able to let go of "false memories" and begin healing from trauma.
Due to media misrepresentation, hypnosis is sometimes regarded as a party trick. When utilized as a true therapy, an individual is not put in a trance and made to quack like a duck, as sometimes shown on television. It is simply a relaxed state where both the subconscious and conscious minds may be accessed. One is aware of his or her surroundings and remembers all that goes on during the session.
