Hypnotherapy is a spiritual science, with tremendous possibilities of achieving holistic health, without using medicines. Use of hypnosis in treatment is known for millennia and had become popular in the 19th century. But, with the advent of psychoanalysis and advanced medical facilities, it declined in popularity, to be revived in the second half of last century. Modern hypnotherapy is a rather young branch of healing discipline. It is not properly understood and not utilized to its full extent, mainly due to the misconceptions and lack of awareness.
In ëHypnotherapy: Healing through the Mindí Dr. Uma Devi has tried to present hypnosis and its therapeutic uses and benefits in a simple manner. The principles and procedures of hypnotherapy and its applications are described, with actual case studies from the authorís experience. Its easily understandable language and lucid presentation are sure to make the book appealing to the readers. This book fills a lacuna in the published literature on clinical hypnotherapy, where the different aspects of hypnotherapy and its varied applications are presented under a single title.
Topics covered include power of subconscious mind, steps in hypnotherapy session, emotional basis of physical diseases, visualisation and guided imagery, self hypnosis and regression therapy. Applications including case studies in clinical, non-clinical and childrens issues are described.
