Hypnotherapy is a completely natural state of mind. However, there are some possible contraindications, and patients who fall into these categories should not be referred or recommended for hypnotherapy. For the majority of patients, though it is extremely beneficial and relaxing.
Clinical hypnotherapy, is a state of deep relaxation, heightened focus and suggestibility. It is a state that heals the mind, body and emotion while enjoying a level of relaxation between sleep and wakefulness. Hypnosis is therefore, completely intertwined with personal development and can provide solutions to many problems in a completely safe way.
Contraindications for Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is a changed state of awareness and increased relaxation that allows for improved focus and concentration. It is an induced increase in parasympathetic tone in order to create “a non-judgmental immersive experience”, as is noted by Dr. David Spiegel, a Stanford University psychiatrist. Clinical Hypnotherapy is usually induced with the guidance of a health care provider using verbal repetition and mental images. During hypnotherapy most people feel calm and relaxed.
Initially, you’ll usually have a talk with your therapist at Satory to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree what methods your therapist will use.
Relaxation During Hypnotherapy
The induction commences, which will lead you into a deeply relaxed state.
The therapist will use your agreed methods to help you towards your goals – for example, suggesting that you do not want to carry out a certain habit (e.g Quit Smoking).
Afterwards, the therapist will gradually bring you out of the relaxed-like state. Most people feel refreshed and relaxed.
You’re fully in control when under hypnosis and do not have to take on the therapist’s suggestions if you do not want to.
If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state at any time you wish.
Hypnosis does not work if you do not want to be hypnotised.
Clinical hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that uses hypnosis to induce a state of deep relaxation and promote positive change. Medical hypnosis is a safe and effective complementary technique for use in medical procedures and in the treatment of many conditions.
According to the American Psychological Association (APA), Hypnosis is defined as “a state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion.” Hypnosis changes the state of consciousness of a person and allows unconscious experiences to become a modified way of looking at reality.
A trained and certified hypnotherapist at Satory, will guide you into this deep state of focus and relaxation with verbal cues, repetition and imagery. When you’re completely relaxed, this intense level of concentration and focus allows you to ignore ordinary distractions and be more open to guided suggestions to make changes to improve your health.
Hypnotherapy may help treat any number of medical conditions in which psychological factors influence physical symptoms.
Common uses include:
Behavior control issues including:
Furthermore, other common medical uses include:
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a common, chronic progressive, neurodegenerative disorder slowly resulting in dementia. Its etiology and pathogenesis is complex, with many genetic and environmental risk factors including stress and insulin resistance.
The main morbid hallmarks in Alzheimer’s disease have long been recognized as extracellular amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques and intraneuronal hyperphosphorylated tau protein, which are the main contributors to the development of pathology.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) describes the therapeutic use of red or near-infrared light (Low Level Laser Therapy LLLT) to stimulate healing, relieve pain and inflammation, and prevent tissue from dying. PBM has been applied for a diverse range of brain disorders, frequently applied in a non-invasive manner, that is by shining light on the head.
Transcranial PBM can enhance ATP biosynthesis, regulate mitochondrial homeostasis, and facilitate neurogenesis and/or neuroplasticity .
In addition, the clinical studies found that LLLT could improve cognition and decrease depression, anxiety, headache and insomnia in patients with chronic traumatic brain injury [2,3,4].
Several clinical studies have demonstrated its value in raising neurometabolic energy levels that can improve cerebral hemodynamics and cognitive abilities in humans .
LLLT can decelerate neurodegenerative disease progression and reduce amyloid β levels in the cortex .
The heart rate is controlled by electrical impulses that originate in the sinus node, which is located in the right atrium, or upper chamber, of the heart. Cardiac arrhythmia or heart rate abnormalities increase mortality and diminish quality of life.
Heart rate abnormalities Managed with Acupuncture
According to many studies reviewed in the literature, 87% to 100% of participants converted to normal sinus rhythm after acupuncture. Acupuncture seems to be effective in treating several cardiac arrhythmias.
In a groundbreaking laboratory experiment, the researchers proved that acupuncture prevents atrial fibrillation through restoration and remodeling of the right atrial appendage.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy that may be applied, in conjunction with Western medicine, to prevent atrial fibrillation and exert an anti-arrhythmic effect, thus managing heart rate abnormalities.
Furthermore, the autonomic nervous system dynamically controls the response of the body to a range of external and internal stimuli, providing physiological stability. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a measure of the naturally occurring beat-to-beat changes in heart rate. It serves as a critical method for gauging human health and resiliency. HRV measures regulation of the heart by the autonomic nervous system. It has been well documented in the literature that acupuncture improves HRV in humans.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In addition to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is known to contain compounds with antiviral properties, although their ability to work against the novel coronavirus has not yet been documented. For example, a patent claims that oleuropein, one of the main phenolic compounds in EVOO, has potent antiviral activities against several types of viruses. In a separate study, oleuropein also “showed significant antiviral activities” against respiratory syncytial virus and para-influenza type 3 virus. Other research has also discussed the antiviral effect of another phenol in EVOO, hydroxytyrosol, on the influenza virus.
Extra Virgin Olive oil may exert beneficial effects on the human health and especially on the immune system, because it contributes to the reduction of typical inflammatory activity observed in patients suffering from autoimmune disorders , but without exacerbating the susceptibility to pathogen agents. This might lead us to believe that extra virgin olive oil is the perfect anti-inflammatory food for the coronavirus era.
Extra virgin olive oil is a valuable component of a healthy diet and lifestyle that can help keep our immune system strong and reduce the inflammation and oxidative stress that lead to a variety of diseases.
Studies have shown that Extra virgin olive oil helps prevent diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as other diseases and conditions  that increase individuals’ risk for serious cases of COVID-19. While additional research is required before benefits against coronavirus infection can be ensured.
PRP (Autologous) facial mesotherapy is a revolutionary method that uses your own enriched plasma to regenerate the skin. PRP facial, combines microneedling (also known as collagen-induction therapy) with topical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood for a skin rejuvenation treatment that creates an overall improvement to skin texture and tone. It can also reduce scars, correct hyperpigmentation, tighten skin, smooth fine lines, and minimize the appearance of pores.
In addition, it lasts up to a year longer than any other traditional mesotherapy, thanks to its autologous action. It is the ideal anti-aging technique that helps maintain a healthy and radiant skin while preventing further damage.
Specifically PRP mesotherapy:
The skin is oxygenated giving it a healthy, rejuvenated appearance. Furthermore, with the continuous production of collagen, wrinkles and imperfections will be smoothed harmoniously, until they are eliminated.
The improvement is noticeable and appears gradually and discreetly as the health of your skin is enhanced in a very natural and beautiful way, without causing sudden or intense change.
At Satory medical center, PRP mesotherapy is performed exclusively by doctors.
The term “holism” and holistic come from the Greek word “olon”. The term holistic describes the field of medicine that examines health issues at all levels and the human being as a whole. It is based on the knowledge that man is not only a biological machine of separate organs, but a multilevel being, a psycho-organic whole.
Holistic medicine creates ground for redefining human nature and helps one to be relieved of illness, but also to know ones inner self. Growing evidence in science, recent research and studies highlight the effectiveness of alternative medicine. The therapeutic goal of most alternative medical methods is very simple, as it aims at the body’s self-healing ability, thus, gently stimulating the brain, causing a positive response in hormonal balance and release of other neuropeptides resulting in self-healing.
Holistic medicine includes both modern pharmaceutical and surgical treatments as well as alternative therapies. The doctor finally evaluates all the data and recommends a personalized treatment regimen which may consist of acupuncture, therapeutic laser, aromatherapy, phytotherapy, etc.
Acupuncture is the most comprehensive and ancient treatment on our planet. Acupuncture has been known since 2698 BC, and it’s based on Chinese philosophy and cosmology. It consists of the placement of a needle in the appropriate acupuncture points which in turn causes the smooth flow of energy that circulates in the meridians, restoring the mental and physical balance of the organism.
Phytotherapy is the science in which the healing properties of herbs are used to help with various problems.
Aromatherapy uses essential oils that are gained from the core of the plant which is the vital force of the plant and once they are medically certified can be used as an external treatment, oral or inhaled therapy.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a very popular therapeutic method which is continuously evolving.
How does LLLT therapy work?
LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) affects the cells directly and causes biostimulation, it also has anti-edematous properties and offers complete cellular and tissue recovery. It improves the body’s interactions with the peripheral nervous system in order to reduce joint and muscle pain and ultimately heal them. LLLT cause photochemical reactions through the absorption of LLLT light rays by the tissues. As the laser light increases the energy levels of the cells and tissues, they are also called biostimulating LLLTs.
They do not cause a thermal reaction and are completely safe.
LLLT therapy is extremely effective in pain management and joint mobilization from the very first session, offering immediate relief and the beginning of rehabilitation.
Multiple clinical trials on the effects of Medical Acupuncture have shown that it successfully treats a variety of pathological conditions.
The World Health Organization (WHO), after extensive research, validated the usefulness of acupuncture in classical medicine in 1979 and again in 2003 and published the list of diseases in which acupuncture treatment has been – scientifically proven – as highly effective.
– Common cold
– Headache – Migraine
– Neuralgia of the Trigeminal Nerve
Diseases of the oral cavity
-Acute and chronic pharyngitis
– Shoulder arthritis
– Epicondylitis of the elbow
– Chronic gastritis
