How Does PMR Induce Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a Natural State We Go Into Often
Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened focus. It is often used to access the subconscious mind and make positive changes in behaviour, negative thought patterns and emotions. PMR acts as a powerful tool to induce hypnosis because it helps you achieve that deep state of relaxation necessary for accessing the subconscious mind. Hypnosis could be likened to a dream state. You often are in a similar hypnotic trace without knowing it;
- when you are deep in a gripping book and hours just pass you by
- watching a great film and eating a bag of crisps and suddenly they are all gone
- driving a car and suddenly you are at you destination but, don’t remember all the details of getting there
PMR is Tense & Relax to Feel the Contrast
Relax Your Body & Quiet Your Mind for Good Hypnotherapy
The relaxation induced by PMR helps to quiet the conscious mind and access the subconscious mind. In this relaxed state, your subconscious mind is more accessible and responsive to positive suggestions for positive change. It is during this state of hypnosis that you can reprogram false, negative beliefs into true positive ones, reduce anxiety, use thjis state for stress management and enhance your overall well-being.
Moreover, PMR can also enhance the effectiveness of other therapeutic interventions. By combining PMR with other techniques such as NLP, guided imagery or cognitive-behavioural therapy, you can achieve even greater results in addressing stress and anxiety
