Transcript: Hypnotism Most Hypnotism movies involve "freaky" things such as "Stare into my eyes!" and that sort of thing. Even though it's totally untrue. Hypnosis is NOT about telling others what to do against their will . . . It's the exact opposite. Hypnosis is putting the body in deep relaxation so the subconscious mind is open for suggestions. You need to know a lot about the subconscious mind to be a hypnotist. Hypnotism involves a lot of practice. If you practice, you could be great at hypnosis! But the law states that you must be liscensed before you charge money. But you could still hypnotize for free. This is the new you. Your new life. Take it. This and many other things can be done through hypnosis. Your life can be pretty as a picture.
Transcript: By Ravyn Braun & Cammie Richards Also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, hypnosis is what is referred to as "an artificially induced trance state resembling sleep, characterized by heightened susceptibility to suggestion". - Dictionary.com You would be more relaxed and calm than you were before. Contrary to popular belief you retain free will, and even when under hypnosis, you cannot be forced into doing something that you would normally be completely against. Despite retaining free will, you are more open to suggestion, and inhibitions will go away. That means that if you were hisitant to doing something, but not against it, then you would do it under the hypnotic suggestion. Basically, you still have control over yourself, you would just be a ton more open to another's SUGGESTION on what you should be doing or feeling at the time. Hypnosis also focuses your thoughts, so you would beable to be concentrated on a specific emotion, memory, or thought while also being MUCH less prone to distractions. What is it?

The core theory behind hypnosis is to put a person into a trance by having them focus on one thing and then essentially "go to sleep". Some hypnotists rely on the patients imagination, or have them focus on one light or object. More often than not, a hypnotist will use number and "count" the person into a trance by, generally, counting down. Though they can also utilize a "trigger" to put someone into a sudden trance, though this is used less often. How and why is it used? Sources "Hypnosis" by Barats & Bareta on YouTube These are the main reason why people let themselves get hypnotized, and even why some doctors might recommen it in some situations. Thank you for your attention!
Transcript: Can anyone be hynotized? When gauging brain wave activity, there are four levels, Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. Once we leave total awareness, conscious, analytical state of mind (Beta) we then drift into the Alpha state.This is considered a light level hypnotic state though a lot of change can be directed in this state. Hypnosis 1.All hypnosis is self induced hypnosis, but external suggestion can trigger it. 2.Hypnosis is not like sleep, nor is it like a zombie state or total unconsciousness. 3.Hypnosis cannot make someone do something they don't want to do. 4.In Hypnosis a subject can release subconscious programs that control them. 5.In deep Hypnosis a subject can stimulate or increase healing ability. 6.In Hypnosis a subject can improve or change any physical or mental ability. 7.In hypnosis a subject can modify or change their emotional state or feelings. 8.Hypnosis can release causes for fears or phobias, then permanently release them. 9.Hypnosis can permanently change habit patterns (ie: remove bad habits). 10.Hypnosis can help release unwanted patterns like post traumatic stress reactions. Hypnosis and Addictions Childbirth under Hypnosis Hypnosis as anesthesia Understanding Hypnotism The light relaxed state of Alpha is all that is necessary to achieve in order to make behavior changes. This is why most people do not think they are "hypnotized" because we have all been misled as to what hypnosis really is. Although hypnosis cannot be used alone to “put patients under,” it does benefit in many ways. Studies have shown that hypnosis along with chemical anesthesia helps to reduce pain and quicken recoveries more than just chemical anesthesia alone. Hypnosis is a great way to help patients who have certain heart problems or other conditions where the chemical anesthesia would be too great of a risk to administer. Hypnosis has been proven to help these patients by lowering the amount of chemical anesthesia dosage. The most important factor regarding the application of hypnosis is a combination of three things. Belief, Desire and Expectancy. You must Believe it will work...have a genuine Desire for it to work and...Expect that it will work. If these three factors are in place, then you are willing and open to suggestion. Too - da - looo! Conclusion Hypnosis has been studied with curing many addictions. Hypnosis has been proven to work for many addicts and others it does not work. It is a hit or miss treatment that shows rates of success around 50% for alcoholism. Hypnosis has not been practiced enough by medical professionals due to the entertainment genre given to it. Within the next several years, experts believe that hypnosis will become a major treatment in curing different substance addictions Don Barnhart- America's Funniest Hypnotists Hypnosis can also be used for child birthing. The idea and usage has been around for centuries but has been becoming more and more popular. Hypnobirthing calms the mother during childbirth by relaxing as much as they physically can without being asleep. Moms who've taken HypnoBirthing classes give birth at hospitals. Some choose to get pain medication, epidurals or cesarean sections. Others elect to give birth at home. The point of HypnoBirthing is that giving birth is natural and can be done with less anxiety.

Transcript: Common Misconceptions Development of EEG, PET, and fMRI have enabled the effects of hypnosis on the brain to be studied like never before: (1) Identify the physiological nature of the theorized hypnotic state (2) Demonstrate baseline differences between people of varying hypnotic ability (i.e. be able to show individual capacity to respond to hypnotic suggestion, even before hypnosis is initiated) (3) Visualise the specific changes in brain function that result from individual / specific hypnotic suggestions (i.e. neural correlates of certain hypnotic suggestions) Uses as Pain Management Findings from Imaging Studies - reference to hypnosis dates back to ancient Egyptian medical papyri - Dr Franz Anton Mesmer's theory of Animal Magnetism in 1774 - Mesmer's work was investigated by a specially appointed Royal Commission in 1784 (by King Louis XVI) - Benjamin Franklin, Joseph Guillotin, and Antoine Lavoisier - who, following their investigation, discredited his work saying it was a simple matter of "touching, imagination [and] imitation" 1.

Put that in ya pipe and smoke it, AY?!) In their study, Rainville et al. presented subjects with a hypnotic intervention to change the distress associated with pain, rather than the perception of pain itself (the study found that suggesting increased or decreased unpleasantness of pain was accompanied by rCBF changes in the anterior cingulate gyrus). A follow-up study gave hypnotic suggestions for increased or decreased pain intensity associated with immersion of subject's hands in hot water, and this showed significant rCBF differences in the somatosensory cortex, in response to these suggestions. History of Hypnosis Continued... Skill of hypnosis is fairly easy to learn Certification if fairly easy to obtain Most important factor is that the practitioner be qualified to treat the presenting complaint without the use of hypnosis Practitioner should have a relevant and real qualification in another area 1. When hypnotised, the subject can be made to do anything 2. While under hypnosis, a person can be made to reveal deep, personal secrets 3. Only 'gullible,' or 'stupid' people can be hypnotised Study conducted by Patterson et al, showed that 30 burn patients undergoing debridement were assigned to 3 groups: hypnosis, attention/pseudo hypnosis (placebo), and no intervention (control) Results: True hypnosis group - 46% decrease in pain Placebo Group - 16% Control Group - 14% Therefore significant improvement with hypnosis, goes beyond just relaxation.

Transcript: Hypnosis: By: Jake Helt Introduction: Hypnosis is defined as an altered consciousness in which people become highly suggestible to changes in behavior and thought. under hypnosis: People can be made aware of things they are not usually aware of and unaware of things they are usually aware of. participants may recall vivid details of their experiences when under hypnosis You are NOT asleep, but merely in a trance. One is extremely responsive and receptive to certain internal or external stimuli Hypnosis in the medical field: Hypnosis can be used to reduce pain. Hypnotic analgesia refers to a reduction of pain reported by patients after undergoing hypnosis. Hypnosis can also be used by therapists who help clients reveal their problems or gain insight into their lives. Under hypnosis, people can see these problems in a light and potentially can help themselves solve such problems. Hypnosis can, if nothing else, help people relax and overcome anxiety before surgery. If fact, it has been suggested that hypnosis could serve as a replacement to anesthesia. Common Misconceptions: Hypnosis DOES NOT give the hypnotist complete control over their subject; people will, under no state, do things that compromise their morality. People will not go into hypnosis if they do not want to. People will not reveal their deepest, darkest secrets under hypnosis Sources: -The Book -youtube
Transcript: person being hypnotized will feel like they’re fully awake as if they’re not being hypnotized at all. This feeling is called hypnoidal. The state of hypnoidal consists of two states, hypnopompic and hypnagogic. Stage 3: complete control is gained in this stage. Sometimes a person can lose the ability to feel pain. Stage 4: this stage is known as the amnesic stage because the person can forget where they live, where they are, and even their own name. The ability to feel pain and the feeling of touch is gone Stage 5: this is the start of the somnambulism stage. The person will sleep walk. The person will feel no pain, no discomfort or sense of touch. You will experience what is called positive hallucinations. You will see and hear things that do not actually exist. You will also have recognition of the past. Stage 6: this is the start of profound somnambulism where the person will experience negative hallucination. This is where they will not hear or see things that actually do exist. Hypnosis Photo credits: 'horizon' by pierreyves @ flickr It could be much larger! Step 1: So...
