Hypnosis for Golf

In this article, I am going to talk about the one thing which absolutely ruins your golf game. And if left untreated, it will severely affect your entire golf game permanently.  As a result, you will never ever play to your true potential.

Imagine the following scenario.

You're preparing for your shot and have determined exactly how you want to play it.  You know exactly where you want the ball to go.  Just as you are about to strike the ball, however, your wrist suddenly jerks and totally messes up your swing.  

Instead of being on the green as planned, you look on in despair as your ball drifts off into the bunker.  Despite all your best efforts, your entire shot was sabotaged by that involuntary shift of the wrist.

What makes this happen?

One word: Tension

Tension is the source of so many poor shots on the golf course.  When tension is present in your body, your muscles tighten and you end up making mistakes such as slicing or overhitting the ball.  Once you eliminate tension, you greatly eliminate the poor shots.

It is as simple as that.

You can spend hours and hours of your time with golf coaches analysing your swing and all the other mechanics of the game.  But if you don't focus on the mental side of the game, you're not going to improve your game much at all.

Why?

Because the tension will always be there to sabotage all your hard work in practice.  This is why hypnosis helps so much to improve your golf.   

Once you improve your mental game, the tension disappears.  Immediately, all the work you did in practice starts paying off whenever you play.  Suddenly you are playing the best golf of your life yet it seems as if you are doing nothing differently than before.  What your opponents won't know is that you have the mental edge that only hypnosis provides.   

Release the tension and realise your golfing potential.

Hypnosis For Dentistry

The use of hypnosis in dentistry can largely be attributed to the work of one man. 

From 1949 to 1962, Dave Elman travelled all across America, teaching hypnosis to medical professionals. 

During this time, Elman instructed over 10,000 physicians, dentists and psychiatrists. 

His pioneering methods are still used today, primarily for analgesia and anesthesia. 

 

By helping to control breathing, blood flow and heart rate, hypnosis is used to both ease and control pain during a surgery or procedure. 

Over the past two decades, it has become more and more common for dentists to rely totally on using pharmacological sedation to relieve dental anxiety and phobia. 

Not only does hypnosis provide effective non-pharmacological sedation, it can also help patients who suffer from dental anxiety, as well as those with a severe gag reflex.

Hypnosis For Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

If you are reading this article, it is very likely you clicked on it after seeing the rather amusing thumbnail image which accompanies it.  For those of you who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), however, it is absolutely no laughing matter. Here, I will talk about how hypnosis is used to alleviate the painful symptoms of IBS.

First of all, lets define what IBS is. It is a common disorder that affects the large intestine (colon). It is a chronic condition that needs to be managed on a long-term basis. Symptoms include cramping, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation.

This video discusses why hypnosis is a very effective treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) To find out more, go to www.callpaul.ie or email Paul at paul@callpaulhypnosis.com

 

 

Based on the findings of several clinical studies, hypnosis has been shown to be a highly effective of IBS.  Hypnosis provides symptomatic, psychological and physiological benefits. Research has shown that it doesn’t just help improve the primary symptoms of IBS. Hypnosis can also help relieve nausea, urinary problems and other secondary symptoms which typically accompany IBS. 

Hypnosis helps you learn relaxation techniques, as well as learning new ways to manage stress. It helps reduce the tension, stress and anxiety caused by IBS. According to research on the long-term follow up, it has been shown that most patients require no further medication after a period between 1-5 years.

Why there is NOTHING wrong with you!

As a hypnotist, I am regularly hired to help clients eliminate phobias, which cause them a huge amount of stress every day.  In severe cases, phobias can control peoples' entire lives, often making it impossible for them to even their own houses.

In such cases, it is understandable that these people come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with them.  This, however, is simply not true.  Sure, there is clearly something very wrong with the end result, the incapacitating fear triggered by the phobia.  Howvere, phobias are actually a demonstration that the sufferer's brain is in absolutely perfect working order.

Think about it for a moment.

If someone is scared of a spider, the phobic response is triggered instantly and automatically the very instant the person sees a spider.  Never do they see a spider and fail to reproduce the identical phobic reaction.  It works perfectly each and every time without exception.  While the phobic response is obviously undesirable, it is a clear sign of a brain working perfectly.  

With hypnosis, all it takes is for the hypnotist to manipulate various thoughts, feelings and associations towards the stimulus (e.g. the client seeing a spider).  This changes the response so that instead of feeling paralysing fear, the client feels neutral towards something which previously terrified them.

This not only applies to those who suffer from phobias.  Your specific thoughts, actions and feelings consistently produce specific results.  Once your thoughts remain the same, so will your actions, results and feelings.  Again, this is a sign that your brain is working absolutely perfectly to achieve the exact same results each and every time. 

To change the way you feel, simply change your thoughts, actions and results.  All of these are unconscious habits, which you automatically repeat without thinking.  Since hypnosis deals specifically with unconscious communication, it provides you the unique means to install the beliefs and habits required for you to greatly improve your life.

Feel Stressed Out? Update Your Mental Sat Nav With Hypnosis!

Human beings are definitely guilty of being creatures of habit.  Once we find a way to achieving satisfactory results doing things a particular way, we tend to stick with repeatedly doing things exactly that way every time we are required to do it.  For example, think of how you travel to work every day.  If you are like most people, you have settled on a particular route which you take every day without fail. 

But what would happen if you woke up one morning to find that roadworks were blocking your usual route to work. 

If you have totally relied on that one particular route, you may very well be clueless as to what other alternative routes are available to you.  This scenario would result in you experiencing a high degree of stress and pressure as you anxiously attempt to find out a different way to get to work on time.  Meanwhile, those who have many different routes available to them have a number of alternatives from which to choose.  As a result, they are able to quickly adapt to the situation, recalculate and experience little to no stress in the process.

Mental flexibility involves having more than one way of doing a particular thing.  Not only does it make life easier by increasing the options available to you, it is very healthy for your brain when you build new neural pathways.  You do this whenever you explore new ways of doing the same thing.  In addition, it is also a good idea to try new things which are far outside your usual comfort zone.  If you generally like rock music, for example, go to an opera.  If you are generally only into indoor activities, go for a hike or even a parachute jump. 

Shaking up your synapses and mentally challenging yourself in this way in an amazing way to increase your mental flexibility.  This will enable you to adapt to the inevitable obstacles that will experience in an infinitely more productive way.

Hypnosis: Myths Versus Facts

 

In a previous article, I explained why so many people are scared about hypnosis.  Unfortunately, the manner in which it is widely portrayed in both the entertainment and media industries have further led to hypnosis being totally misunderstood.  The aim of this article is to address and dispel some of the more widely held myths about hypnosis.

Myth #1: Hypnosis doesn't work

Fact: According to American Health Magazine, a comparison study comparing the effectiveness of Psychoanalysis, Behaviour Therapy and Hypnotherapy obtained the following results:  

Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions.

Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions

Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions

Myth #2: Hypnosis only works on some people.  Certain individuals can’t be hypnotised.

Fact: Since hypnosis is a completely natural state, everybody has the ability to be hypnotised.  The fact of the matter is that we all experience hypnosis each and every day. Whenever you become engrossed in a movie, you naturally enter a state of hypnotic trance.  You willingly suspend your disbelief that they are actors merely acting out a script.  As a result, you experience a variety of emotions as the story in movie progresses.  You also enter a hypnotic state whenever you get totally engrossed in a movie or TV show. Another example is when you are driving and not consciously thinking of the route you are taking.  While your mind drifts off to recall an earlier conversation at work, you end up missing a turn you needed to take.  Human beings are naturally hypnotic - they are actually switching from trance to trance all the time throughout the day.

Myth #3: Hypnosis can make you do things against your will

Fact: All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.  A hypnotist is merely guiding you into the state of hypnosis so that you can access all the amazing benefits that only hypnosis can offer you.  

Imagine you had a problem with your laptop.  You phone a computer expert and they patiently guide you through all steps to take in order to get the results you desire.  Think of your mind as being like a very powerful organic computer.  Hypnotists work with their clients in a very similar way using hypnosis.  At all times, you are in complete control of what is going on.

Rest assured that your subconscious mind is fully equipped with a powerful survival mechanism that will ensure than you will reject any suggestions that are not in your best interests.

Myth #4:  You won't remember anything the hypnotist says.

Fact: In the same way that you can lose concentration and drift off temporarily during a conversation with a friend, the same thing happens during a hypnosis session.  Your conscious mind quickly gets bored or having to analyse and make logical sense of each word spoken by the hypnotist.  So it drifts in and out of the session, allowing the hypnotist to communicate directly with your subconscious mind.  This is the part of your mind responsible for your beliefs and habits.  While the conscious mind is relaxed and at rest, this allows the hypnotist to help the client make powerful and permanent changes.
