Hypnosis for dementia

With hypnosis, people with dementia CAN improvement their quality of life.

Hypnotherapy for Dementia

I recently came across a study about hypnosis for dementia, which as a Hyonotherapist and Hynotherpay Instructor I found very interesting. This study was done in the UK by Dr. Dan Nightingale and Dr. Simon Duff. They found that people living with dementia who had received hypnosis therapy showed an improvement in concentration, memory and socialization compared to the other two treatment groups. Relaxation, motivation and daily living activities also improved with the use of hypnosis. The impressive part of this is the improvements continued in a follow up study 12 months after the hypnosis sessions had concluded.

Alternative Approaches to Supporting Individuals With Dementia

Enhancing Quality of Life Through Hypnosis

By Simon Duff, PhD and Daniel Nightingale, PhD

The data from this study supports previous work indicating that individuals with dementia can be hypnotized. Furthermore, it adds to the increasing body of empirical data demonstrating the important contribution hypnosis can make in improving the QOL (quality of life) of individuals with dementia. Importantly, although it may seem obvious, it is crucial to differentiate between improving the psychosocial QOL of persons with dementia and impacting upon the process of dementia. In the particular environment of this study, hypnosis has demonstrated an ability to play a role in changing particular aspects of QOL.This implies that there is a subjective, cognitive component to the common behavioral changes associated with dementia that impact QOL in addition to those changes produced by the biological process of dementia.We suggest that it is through this subjective component that hypnosis impacts QOL, which leads to the prediction that it should be possible to both differentiate and plan interventions for the objective, biological effects of dementia and the subjective, psychological effects independently

The study showed that over a 9 month period, hypnosis helped people with dementia to improve:

  • concentration
  • relaxation
  • motivation
  • improve activities for daily living
  • immediate memory
  • memory of significant events
  • socialization
  • overall quality of life

Living well with dementia is possible and people living with dementia and their caregivers can benefit from hypnosis to help them to have a better quality of life.

Happy Heart Health Month

I’m raising money for the British Heart Foundation’s and I’d be so grateful for your support.  I’ve lost many special friends to heart and circulatory disease and sadly every day hundreds of people still lose their lives.  I have been inspired by my client’s who have either had heart attacks and are now working on reducing their ongoing risk or just want to prevent and reduce their risks to heart disease.

In the U.K. alone, about 348,000 people die of cardiovascular disease.
Every 7 minutes someone in the U.K. will have a heart attack.

Together, we can make small changes every day to help prevent heart
disease. My aim is to raise awareness of this disease, and  to celebrate the heart and its amazing role in the body. After all, it is your body’s hardest working muscle. Your heart deserves special care and attention!

My pledge is to raise awareness about heart disease and its effects.

Every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target.

Thank You!

Emotional Release Technique

The Emotional Release technique is based on using applied kinesiology, or muscle testing, which shows the body’s reaction to a thought or a question in the weakening or strengthening of its muscles. This technique helps us get “yes” or “no” answers from the body, and we use it to get information about imbalances that are causing emotional or physical problems. This works because all the information about our bodies is stored in the subconscious mind, which makes up about 95% of our mind. It is the part of us that remembers what we had for breakfast the first Monday of April last year (no matter if you’re reading this in 2013 or 2093)! It stores all the information, kind of like a back up disc, and also controls things like your heartbeat, your blood pressure, functioning of your liver, etc. It also knows about everything that is getting in the way of a healthy body. For example, your subconscious knows that the argument with your roommate in 1977 is causing your hip pain today, even if you no longer remember or think about that old event. This is The Emotion Release Technique is fascinating – it allows us to access and deal with information that we never would consciously realize is important!

But it’s not just information that’s important, it’s energy.   More precisely, the affect of emotional energy on the energy of our bodies.  Emotions are made of pure energy, and when we experience them, their energy can get trapped in the body.  Each one of these is a trapped emotion, which interacts constantly with a certain part of your body, wherever it is trapped. It is the energy of this emotion that can then “interfere” with the natural frequency that exists in your body and begin to manifest as some form of physical or emotional issue.

Our bodies are really made of pure energy which is why we are able to use applied kinesiology to identify trapped emotions, then we release them.

Once a trapped emotion is identified, we are able to release it by running over the energy line in the body called the governing meridian. This can be likened to taking a credit card and running it over a magnet – the magnet changes or deletes the information on the card. In the same way, once we have identified a trapped emotion (by accessing the info from the subconscious mind using applied kinesiology), we trace over the governing meridian and this deletes or releases the energy from the body.
