Myths associated with hypnosis
Failing to have experienced or read about it, hypnosis remains for most of us associated with fair shows where the mysterious "hypnotist" turns our neighbours into chickens or our grandmother into a exotic dancer.
How we've hoped we would not be among those who, at the beginning of the show, would find themselves "forced" to go on stage because of their inability to control their hands, as welded together by the mysterious power Grand Master X!
While using the same basic principles as does medical hypnosis, these fair shows demonstrate how people - to the extent that they allow it, even if unconsciously - can allow themselves to experience an entirely different "range of possible" while in this state. More than they would ever have it in their "normal" / rational / conscious state.
Fortunately, many researchers, psychiatrists, psychologists, and hypnotherapists have since contributed to the nobility of this practice. Milton H Erickson, an American psychiatrist, has more than anyone else helped to bring hypnosis from the fairground spectacle to therapy and bring millions of people lasting relief from their suffering or achieve a level of self-esteem they had never known before.
Nevertheless, a good number of myths persist. It is some of these that I will now address in order to reassure you and offer you the chance to discover, like so many others before you, this liberating tool that is hypnosis.
In a trance state, we can be made to do or say things contrary to our values
Know that throughout this journey where your unconscious will be the main actor, your consciousness will remain present and will never leave you defenceless.
Your conscience will always act as a watchdog and will never allow you to be forced to do things that are contrary to your values or your well-being.
At the end of your first session, you will see how unfounded this fear was.
We do not remember what happened during the trance
Although amnesia is one of the tools available to the practitioner and the subject in their work, this amnesia can not be provoked without the subject's previous agreement, while he is aware and able to judge the relevance of its use.
Its use is rather rare and it is wrong to assume that amnesia necessarily accompanies trance.
It is induced only by mutual agreement between the practitioner and the subject and only where it is relevant.
One may not be able to get out of trance
Although one often regrets having to leave this state of calm and well-being, there is no risk of remaining "in a state of hypnotic trance".
Acupuncture, inherited from the thousand-year-old tradition of Chinese medicine, is based on the concept of a vital energy "Qi" flowing in the body, that can be stimulated by using needles on different parts of the body, for therapeutic purposes.
This alternative to traditional western medicine, this drug-free approach seduces more and more people everyday..
A strong characteristic of Traditional Acupuncture is that is approaches a person as a whole and not as a mere illness: each patient receives a personalized treatment.
Acupuncture is used as a preventive and curative method.
The focus is on the correcting eventual energy imbalances in the meridians, viscera or organs in order to avoid diseases. Indeed, according to theory, if an imbalance persists, the body succumbs to the disease: from simple cold to a more serious one.
Acupuncture is used as a cure in some diseases.
L’acupuncture, what does it treat ?
Acupuncture can be used to treat almost every locomotive, organic, psychological, and psychic disorders generated by our modern society (stress, malaise ...).
But, just as different drugs are used to treat different diseases, different acupuncture points can be stimulated depending on the case.
Symptoms, even those of a degenerative disease, are not the disease itself; they are an external or externalized mode of expression that is then used by the energy specialist to find the root of the energy imbalance which is at the source of these manifestations, that is, a break with the Tao. To treat the root is to treat the cause and to stop its evolution before it becomes a lesion..
This is why, depending to the patient and particularities, the symptoms manifested for the same energetic disease often are very different.
Examples: heavy legs, sleep, backache, sexual dysfunction, stress, anxiety, depression, digestion, endocrine regulation, acne, concentration, memory, physical performance, sports, tendinitis, carpal tunnel ...
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are a great complements to Western health practices: medicine (all fields), physiotherapist, midwife, nurse, osteopath, etiopath, chiropractor, psychologist, psychotherapist, naturopath, phytotherapist, hypnotherapist ...
"Magic light" for children
Acupuncture is quite suitable in children, even for infants, to treat physical (digestive, skin ...) or physiological disorders (sleep disorders ...).
Quite often, children, usually more balanced, need less acupuncture work than adults.
For the youngest, the preferred method of stimulating acupuncture points is the re-harmonizing laser: children love it, they call it magic lights. Plus, it's very effective.
Another possible technique: acupressure ... which only uses finger pressure. Nevertheless, in some cases, it is sometimes necessary to use very fine needle. There is no absolute counter-indication on this subject.
"Shiatsu": a Japanese term meaning "finger pressure".
Shiatsu is a manual therapy technique of Japanese origin that uses vertical pressure mainly using thumbs, but sometimes using other fingers or the palms of the hands, on the whole body.
This Japanese practice uses the same points and meridians as traditional Chinese acupuncture.
