Virtually all people who want to help themselves with hypnosis gain at least some benefit, since everyone can improve their mind/body connection with achievement of a healthier mental state and practice. On infrequent occasions, imporvement occurs immediately, and on most occasions some benefit can be observed within a few weeks of hypnosis use.
Achieving a relaxed state of mind with hypnosis sometimes leads to a very quick improvement in health. In my experience children with habit cough and shortness of breath can resolve their symptoms as soon as they relax during their first hypnosis experience. This improvement can appear to be dramatic, as some of these children have had their symptoms for years before they learned about hypnosis.
Children with phobias usually can resolve them during the first session of hypnosis, which may involve thinking back to the time when the phobia began and learning how to “rewrite” the memory of the event. For example, a child who is afraid of insects because at one time a spider crawled on his arm, can learn to resolve the phobia by imagining that at the time of the spider encounter he was able to remain calm and confident. Thus, since he can now imagine a peaceful first encounter with a spider, he can then react as if the phobia never occurred in the first place.
Abdominal discomfort related to irritable bowel syndrome tends to improve greatly or resolve after an average of 3 weeks of use of hypnosis for relaxation.
Bedwetting tends to improve within a few weeks, but sometimes takes a few months.
On the other hand, children with chronic headaches may experience some improvement within a few weeks of regular use of hypnosis, but it may take several months of consistent use of hypnosis to achieve lasting improvement with the frequency or intensity of their headaches.
Children with long-term anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, or depression also improve with use of hypnosis, but often benefit from long-term counseling as well.
Overall, two thirds of children with medical issues appear to improve a lot within a few weeks as a result of hypnotic relaxation alone.
Children in the other third require use of more complex hypnosis techniques and counseling. These techniques also can lead to improvement within days, weeks, or months, depending on the nature of the symptoms and complexity of any underlying psychological difficulties. Such techniques include learning how to:
Hypnosis can help achieve rapid improvement in health in certain situations, including those that can benefit easily from hypnotic relaxation. With patience and practice, virtually everyone can use hypnosis to improve the mind/body connection.
