The Power of Hypnosis in the Fight Against Aging

By Steve G. Jones, Better Living With Hypnosis

Time stands still for no one. That does not mean we have to let time take its toll on us. The mind and body are too important to let be controlled by chronological aging when much of how our bodies age is within our control. Hypnosis has several approaches to helping slow the affects of aging.

Keeping A Young Attitude
You are only as old as you feel when you have learned to think young. Hypnosis helps you maintain the same kinds of ambition, creativity and zest for life that you had in your early 20s no matter how many birthdays you have celebrated. Through a process of relaxation and then suggestion, hypnosis is able to create strong mental images of vitality both physically and mentally.

Staying Physically Young
Physical limitations can often impact our mental image of ourselves and how young we think and act. By maintaining strong physical health, such as exercising daily, eating right and keeping your immune system strong, you will feel physically well and young. The mental and the physical sides of your health will support each other in feeling younger. Hypnosis can improve your resolve and desire to exercise and boost your immune system too.

Relate As the Young
It is never too late to enjoy love and passion in your life. If you are older and single, the fear of a new relationship may be keeping you from enjoying the company and intimacy all people need. Hypnosis can help you overcome self-confidence issues, the fear of intimacy or rejection or the obstacles that are standing in the way of making that first move.

As good information about health and nutrition are reaching the masses along with medical advances people are living strong, vital lives well into their 90s. Being young at heart is as important as staying physically strong to get the most out of life at any age. Hypnosis provides the tools to overcome anything standing in the way of a youthful approach to aging.

Hypnosis Can Cure Female Sex Phobias

Hypnosis can help cure women of sex phobias like fear of sperm, a sexual health congress has been told.

Melbourne psychologist Dr Janet Hall told the gathering of sex therapists that she had successfully freed several women from their sexual problems by hypnotising them. Some of these women had a fear of sex sparked by a condition caused vaginismus, contractions which make intercourse painful and often impossible.

"I've found that with hypnosis you can get them to rehearse the sex act in the safety of their own imagination," Dr Hall told the conference in Sydney today.

"That way you can change their negative thoughts to positive and help them reframe the problem to show them there is a solution."

She said one Indian woman with a sperm phobia overcame her fear in three sessions and was now pregnant. Another woman used the therapy to successfully overcome the fear that her husband was going to be "swallowed up" during sex.

Dr Hall said a patient in her 30s came to her after a nine-year sexless marriage and a "terrible anxiety" around intercourse. "In hypnotherapy, she reverted to being age seven where a relative sexually abused her," the therapist said.
"She told me as if it was happening right then and there exactly what the perpetrator had done."

The controversial practice is dismissed by many as ineffective and even problematic but Dr Hall, who operates a private practice, said the benefits were clear. She said she had not had such positive results from women suffering vulvodynia, or chronic physical vulva pain.

"I can't say I can wave my magic wand to dispel the pain, but it can be used to overcome their fear of penetration," the therapist said.

"Hypnotherapy has a lot to offer women who suffer in these ways and I really recommend those of you who work with them to explore it."
