June 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Today, more and more people practice self-hypnosis even in the comfort of their own homes. Although this can be done, it is best to do with if one has knowledge or background on the practice of hypnosis. To know more about self-hypnosis,  research must be done before actually trying it or practicing it at home. Research on self-hypnosis can be done by using the Internet and looking for online sites that offer information on the subject. With just one click on any search engine, thousands of references may appear on the screen. Look for those sites that can link you to what you want to know about the practice.

Aside from doing an online research, you can also get information from various books and magazines. There are actually so many health magazines that come up with features on self-hypnosis because they believe that this can greatly help the overall wellbeing of a person. If you know people who have been practicing self-hypnosis, you can also ask them for some tips on how to start with it and how to make it easier for you.

One great way of being informed about self-hypnosis is knowing how it started or where it originate so you will have a better understanding of the practice. There were so many people who were considered as pioneers when it comes to self-hypnosis. Many of them were influential in the practice and somehow formed what it is today  just like Scottish physician and surgeon named James Braid who claims to discover self-hypnosis or hypnotism in 1894. After discovering it, he first taught it to several clients before actually tried it on himself. His theory in self-hypnosis says that.. “feeling is the very truth” once you tried to use it when dealing with physical or emotional problems.

In the beginning of 20th century, Émile Coué had his take on self-hypnosis as well. Many say that he is an influential figure when it comes to the subsequent development of the practice. He came up with the theory on “conscious autosuggestion” which eventually became well-known around the world for being an effective self-help system. His detachment from the concept of the usual “hypnosis” was passed to his followers like Charles Baudouin who is one of the pioneers of modern hypnotherapists.

German psychiatrist Johannes Schultz also became a well-known figure in the field of hypnosis when he developed “autogenic training”. This specific training is designed for relaxation and was brought to public awareness when it was first published way back in the year 1932.

Hypnotherapist and early behavior therapist Andrew Salter also contributed a lot in self-hypnosis when he published his first major academic journal on self-hypnosis that talked about the three techniques of autohypnosis in 1841, involving “autohypnosis by post-hypnotic suggestion”, “autohypnosis by memorized trance instructions,” and “fractional autohypnosis”.

Who can benefit from self-hypnosis?

Experts say that when used or practiced properly, self-hypnosis can benefit everybody. This is everybody who undergoes different levels of stress and those who need motivation for personal development or to increase performance in strenuous activities such as sports. Self-hypnosis can also be used for extensive modern hypnotherapy which can be done through a learned routine or through listening to a CD where the routine is recorded.

The cost of hypnosis and hypnotherapy vary depending on your location, the popularity of the therapist, and the length and nature of the sessions you wish to purchase.  Don’t go for the cheap option! Take the free consultation. These consultations are designed so that you can make a choice as to whether the hypnotist is the right person for you or not. It’s his/her job to convince you of that. A good start is to experience hypnosis through a carefully chosen audio recording where you can experience, in the comfort of your own home or office, the relaxing meditative state of trance and see whether it is for you or not!
