Ernest L. Rossi, PhD
He researches the “psychobiology” of mind-body-healing powers on neuroscientific and genetic bases
Bernie S. Siegel, MD
Yes! The answer has been revealed through endocrinology and has also been proven by a recently established branch of medical science – psychoneuroimmunology. Both fields of study show that this mind-body connection does really exist! Psychoneuroimmunology studies and employs interaction between the mind (psyche), the nervous system, and the immune system. This field is commonly known as Mind-Body Medicine.
And it works through hypnotherapy. The processes of mind-body communication usually function autonomously on the subconscious level. The natural state of trance is the gate to the subconscious mind to get it involved, positively influence body function and promote restoration. In this process, the client is the one who does the work in the healing process. The hypnotherapist is only a facilitator, guide, and consultant.
Most illnesses have a psychological component. Seemingly long-forgotten psychological trauma, even if you are not aware of it, influences your life and creates an environment that is ripe for illness. This trauma can be accessed, modified and healed in a hypnotic state. These days it’s well-known that long-standing, chronic stress is a leading factor in many illnesses such as essential hypertension, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune conditions and a long list of other ailments. Also, recent research has shown that childhood trauma is strongly correlated with diseases later in life. The San Diego site of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a study that demonstrated how sustained childhood stress or a traumatizing, emotionally damaging event strongly contributed to somatic disease in the child’s future.
Ernest Rossi, Ph.D. and Bernie Siegel, M.D. were initiators in studying and understanding the connection between the emotions, the mind, and illness. They created many hypnotherapeutic approaches for promoting the healing of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and various other medical conditions. Their work has shown that many individuals with cancer or other somatic illnesses have been exposed to chronic stress or experienced a traumatizing and emotionally damaging event roughly two years prior to their diagnoses.
The good news is that there are numerous approaches that can help heal the wounds of emotional trauma and reduce chronic stress. And one of the best is hypnotherapy. Tanya will guide you through the healing hypnotherapeutic process.
