While reading chapter 5, I came across a section on hypnosis. According to the chapter 5, hypnosis is defined that a set of techniques that provides people with suggestions for alterations in their perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The use of hypnotic techniques has increased continuously because it is considered a safe, reliable, effective and comfortable alternative to other traditional clinical methods. Many professions recognize the potential benefits of using hypnosis for stress management and the hypnosis method is used to stop smoking, eliminate phobias or lose weight.
I have no experience with hypnosis, but I have done meditation through one of physical education classes. At that time, when I was deep in meditation, I was in the stage of comfortable relaxation by the instructor's direction. Even though there are differences between hypnosis and meditation, I believe similarity of that both methods can be used to eliminate physical discomfort. In addition, I truly felt that my whole body was extremely being relaxed and sometimes, I had fallen asleep with a consciousness dream.
