If you or a loved one is suffering from chronic pain, it may be time to look into alternative methods of treatment and return to your normal routine. It is important to know that there are many different forms of treatment that are proven to be long lasting and healing beside covering up your pain with prescription pills. At Ramos Center, we strive to provide treatments that will not only block the pain our patients are feeling but will stop the pain for good.
We understand that not everyone is cut from the same cloth. Treatments that heal and provide lasting results for some patients may not work for others. This is why we have a whole team of physicians that are dedicated to trying new treatments so we can find the best solution for YOU.
A treatment that is often overlooked is clinical hypnotherapy. When we say “hypnotherapy”, many people automatically imagine laying on a couch and becoming hypnotized by a round object and soft spoken words, as seen in demonstrations. This is called “stage hypnosis” and it is very different from clinical hypnotherapy.
What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?
Clinical Hypnotherapy targets your inner emotions, whether it’s how you relate to yourself, or how you feel others relate to you. Hypnotherapy is conducted by a licensed psychologist who is there to help you relax, meditate on the issues you are having, and offer calm solutions that can help you change your daily habits for the better.
The number one goal for our physicians is to achieve trust and easy communication with their patients. What many people don’t know is that when you are relaxed, your subconscious has more time to contemplate life choices and gives you space to internalize those things that will help you improve your life. A typical hypnotherapy session will be conducted along these basic steps:
- You will walk into your therapy room and lay on a reclined couch with your feet up.
- Your therapist will walk you through breathing and meditation exercises to help you relax.
- Once you are relaxed, your therapist will begin to ask you simple questions that you will begin to calmly answer.
- When an issue is stumbled upon, your therapist will offer advice and ask you in turn, how you think that could help you change the issue at hand.
- Once the session comes to a close, you will be guided back through breathing and slowly wake up and become alert once again.
Here are some common misconceptions that will not happen during a hypnotherapy session:
- You will not blurt out secrets during hypnotherapy.
- You will not be convinced you are able to do or be someone you’re not (superman).
- You will not be coerced into doing anything against your will.
