Hypnosis is a fascinating field in medical science and psychology. It has a long history and can also be said to be dark in human history.
In the process of hypnosis, the hypnotized person, with the help of suggestion causes the hypnotized person to experience various changes in feeling, perception, cognition, emotion, physiological processes and even motor behavior.
People who have undergone hypnosis report that the process has created in them an alternative state of mind that is different from the normal state of consciousness or at least from a structure of increased concentration.
Hypnosis can qualify for a wide range of psychological and medical cases and treatments, including coping with pain, addiction, anxiety, weight loss and more.
Many of us as children tried to hypnotize others or hypnotize ourselves as a game. There used to be entertainment shows where the hypnotists would try to bring their hypnotists back to their childhood periods.
January 4, Hypnosis Day, is designed to raise awareness of the hypnosis process and the positive effects that can be achieved through it.
Dr. Jack Stanley Gibson was an Irish hypnotherapist who lived from 1909 to 2005. He spent most of his career treating psychosomatic disorders through hypnosis. The first hypnosis day was celebrated in 2006, in honor of Dr. Gibson.
The goal of Hypnosis Day is to teach people about the process and dispel false myths like the idea that hypnosis can make people do things they do not want to do, like commit crimes for example.
The term "hypnosis" comes from Greek mythology. Hypnos was the god responsible for sleep. He looks like a naked boy with wings holding the poppy fruit that causes sleep and forgetfulness.
In honor of Hypnosis Day, you will learn about the process and its fascinating history. On its uses in the past and present and on its benefits and dangers.
