Thehypnosis session for sleep disorders begins with a meeting with the therapist. The objective is to identify the cause of the sleep disorder, as each cause is treated differently.

The purpose ofhypnosis is to find the cure for the evil that bothers you, therefore you must be or at least try to be in harmony with yourself.

After each session (about 40 minutes), the therapist makes a summary with the patient to know the level of progress and propose new solutions. According to one study, between 50 and 85% of patients feel an improvement after the first session, after a few sessions the changes are significant although they depend on the level of discomfort.

Pain problems are obvious examples of this particularity ofhypnosis since no medication will be administered. Generally, these hypnotic treatments are done in three steps:

  • Induction : it is a
    hypnotic technique
    It consists in using a moving object to bring the patient back to a state of latent consciousness.
  • Dissociation – confusion: the objective is to limit the patient’s sensation, he loses tactile, auditory and visual sensitivity, becomes immobile and stiff.
  • The opening: here, the therapist will enter in relation with the body of the patient to heal him, he will propose thanks to well adapted metaphors of the psychic states related to the relief to heal the patient.

That said, these sessions must be done before the pain becomes chronic, as chronic pain would not allow the patient to go through these different stages. Although theeffectiveness of hypnosis for pain is clinically recognized, there is still much work to be done to make it scientifically effective.
