What is the difference between Hypnosis, Guided Imagery, Visualistation or Meditation?
Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation, which can be induced either by a Hypnotherapist or by self-hypnosis. Many long time practitioners of Meditation are able to experience a similar effect. With Hypnotherapy the effect is combined with a therapy to help you let go of negative thoughts and emotions, and replace them with positive ones. Guided Imagery and Visualisation are again similar and used extensively for Medical issues, for example you could use Guided Imagery to help you imagine killer T cells racing around your body destroying cancer cells. Visualisation is also used in the sporting world and many top players and coaches use visualisation to enhance their sporting performance. For example Gymnasts and their coaches use this technique to learn difficult routines on the bars, it helps to lay down neural pathways in the brain so that when they come to doing the actual routine, its not a new routine at all and amazingly it just flows! there have also been some encouraging results
