 Self-Hypnosis Theory

As people seek an alternative to medicinal and surgical treatments, they begin to understand how they can use the mind to heal the body. 

Why Practice Self-Hypnosis?
The purpose of practicing self-hypnosis is to attain a greater level of relaxation and concentration to allow your mind to send healing messages to your body. The key to successful self-hypnosis is for the body to learn appropriate responses to the messages. Self-hypnosis targets and channels your natural inner resources for problem solving and healing.

The pioneering efforts of Milton H. Erickson
M.D. have provided a foundation for the study of self-hypnosis as therapy. An American psychologist and psychiatrist, Erickson is considered to be the father of modern hypnosis. He practiced hypnosis to optimize healing and change in his patients. Erickson's view is that the psyche, mind and brain are directly integrated in adjusting body processes in health and illness. Erickson recognized the importance of a person's inner resources for coping with physical and emotional problems. He then utilized these resources to facilitate the healing process.
