#highwayhypnosis #usinghypnosis #benefitsofhypnosis People have been reaping the benefits of hypnosis for quite some time.    They have been using hypnosis to help with mental issues and to stop bad habits.  This is possible because we can be put in a trance that allows the hypnotherapist to communicate with our subconscious. 


Can our minds ability to be put in the a trance be bad?   Sometimes!   A condition known as " highway hypnosis "  is when our minds are put into a trance due to driving for long periods of time while looking at long stretches of highway.    Highway hypnosis can reduce reaction times and lower our ability to respond to situations.  


Some of the ways you can avoid being hypnotized by the road are simple and easy to follow.    They normally involve having something keeping your brain alert or having someone keep you company.   If all else fails, you could always pull over.

#thebiologybehindhypnosis #howhypnosisworks #doeshypnosiswork  Hypnotherapy is not some form of magic.   It has real life biological elements.   It affects the body and the brain not just the mind and the subconscious.    However not too many studies have been done on the biology behind hypnosis.   For this reason not much is known on how hypnotherapy affects you biologicially.

One such study was recently conducted to see how hypnosis works and finally answer the question does hypnosis work and why it works for some and not for others?   It turns out that Oxytocin, a hormone your brain produces, might have something to do with hypnosis.   Via the study, patients that were given Oxytocin had an increased response to hypnotherapy than the patients in the placebo group.   

What is Oxytocin and why does it have such a strong effect?  Oxytocin is a hormone that our brain produces and uses to lower anxiety.    Studies have found that people who produce more Oxytocin tend to be more relaxed and happier.    This could be the answer to how hypnotherapy works.    When your mind is in a more relaxed state, it is easier to enter a trance. 

If you want to learn how to become a hypnotherapist or would like to take courses in hypnotherapy then you should visit the American Institute of Health Care Professionals.   They have an excellent hypnotherapy certification program.
