Medical hypnosis

What is medical hypnosis ?

hypnose médicale 568x380

The hypnotic trance is a state of consciousness that is different from both wakefulness and sleep. These differences have been documented through neuroimaging as well as electroencephalogram (EEG) activity.

It is a natural state that we experience spontaneously several times a day, such as when we are engrossed in reading. In a hypnotic trance state, we remain aware and at the same time we are absorbed in a deep concentration focused within ourselves.

The therapist induces the hypnotic trance in order to work on the goals set by the patient, whether it be a symptom (pain, insomnia, alteration or modification of sensory perception, gastrointestinal dysfunction, etc.) or a behavior (aggressiveness, anxiety, insomnia, phobias, etc.).

In the case of sleep, scientific literature confirms that hypnosis is an effective tool, whether complementary or not, for finding a sleep that is more adapted to one’s needs. Hypnosis is useful in addressing insomnia in cases of difficulties falling asleep as well as nocturnal awakenings.

Hypnosis is also effective for patients suffering from night terrors.

How does the therapy take place ?

After an initial session dedicated to the anamnesis, the patient and their therapist begin to work on the set goal in a hypnotic trance. Improvement is measured based on criteria chosen by the patient according to their needs.

At the same time, the patient can start using self-hypnosis to reinforce the work done with the therapist and eventually become independent.

What is the role of self-hypnosis on sleep ?

Self-hypnosis can have a beneficial role in sleep by helping to induce a state of deep relaxation, which can facilitate falling asleep and improve sleep quality.

By regularly practicing self-hypnosis techniques, such as visualization, repeating positive phrases, or progressive muscle relaxation, it is possible to reduce anxiety, stress, and negative thoughts that can disrupt sleep. Indeed, self-hypnosis can help calm the mind and focus on positive and soothing thoughts, thereby promoting a state of relaxation and sleep.
