Hypnosis is beneficial for a myriad of conditions, problems, addictions and for self-improvement purposes. Some studies suggest that hypnosis can help mental disorders, ranging from depression, anxiety and certain phobias to panic, schizophrenia and psychosis and other mental and psychological problems.
Reticent memories are recovered in the patients of mental problem with the help of hypnosis and this is very helpful. Normal behavior of people changes when they subconsciously suppress painful memories of trauma and pain which can lead to mental disorder. With the help of hypnosis the patient is able to remember the suppressed memories which could have been the cause of the mental problem they are suffering from.
For example, during the First and Second World Wars, soldiers developed mental health disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, due to their experiences. Some doctors used hypnosis to help these soldiers remember and then relive these memories in order to get rid of built-up emotional tension. Consequently, many soldiers were able to recover their mental health.
Patients need to be aware that sometimes, through the unintended suggestibility of the hypnotherapist, false memories can be created. This is why, even though hypnosis can help mental disorders, it is still considered fairly controversial.
Mental patients who are very disturbed can relax with the help of hypnosis and this is also a way to assist patients to get rid of serious symptoms. A feeling of calmness, relaxation and feel good comes over the patient with this technique of healing with hypnosis. There are a number of benefits for people with mental problems. They are able to modify the way they behave and learn new methods of dealing with their feelings as well as problems. It helps them to get rid of signs of tension, depression and nervousness.
With the passing of time hypnosis is used more often to treat people with mental problems as more mental health experts understand the value of hypnosis.
