  • Hi

    Hello,

    Not sure if I fit in here. Maybe not.

    I like to push the boundaries of our understanding of pain and its treatment. For that reason I tend to get :zip: by those who prefer the slow change.

    Anyway, I'm a Physio and my interests are philosophy, psychology, invisible things like personal energetic influence, outlier cases and rapid change, hypnosis and related topics.

    Hello,

    I think you "fit in" here. Have you a defense of what you speak?

    Aside from what I write, I've grown silent.

      Thanks.

      Over the years I've been highly defensive. Then one day I read a passage by Milton Erickson:

      "Too many people...try to argue with skepticism. I don't bother. That's part of my prestige - I just don't argue".

      And so nowadays I'm slightly less bothered about defending my point of view, desperate as I am to attain such prestige! Not really.... the desire for prestige and recognition has at last started to wane. It's seductive, but chasing it will drain your energy and a good reservoir of energy is needed to be effective.

      I rarely use hypnosis nowadays, despite its power. My approach to treatment is quite plain.

        If I can ask, how do you define hypnosis? There does not seem to be a lot of literature supporting hypnosis as commonly defined, so I would be most interested to hear how you define it and have used it.

          Hi,

          I define it in terms of process because it's easier.

          1- gain trust and rapport
          2- direct the client to focus inwardly
          3- narrow the focus to a single point through attention to detail

          The above steps ensure a trance state. It doesn't need to be deep. Light trance is quite adequate. Takes only a minute.

          4- use words to suggest the desired change or outcome.
          5- wake the client fully to break the trance.

          I've used it to get rid of pain. But I don't use it any longer and I'd encourage others not to use it; the reason for this would take a lot of explaining. It does work though. Extremely powerful.
