Brief of Hypnosis
Hypnosis is defined as a condition of mind in which an analytical function of the logical mind is
reduced to allow an individual goes into an unconscious state (sub-conscious/unconcious), in
which stored a variety of internal potentials which can be exploited to further improve the
quality of life. Individuals who are in a state of "hypnotic trance" is more open to suggestion
and can be neutralized from excessive fear (phobia), trauma or pain. Individuals who
experience hypnosis can still be aware of what is happening around him along with a variety of
stimulus provided by the therapist.
Hypnosis therapy (hypnotherapy) is now a scientific phenomenon, but until now there is still
not clearly defined, how the actual mechanism of hypnotherapy. Some scientists speculate that
hipnotherapi stimulate the brain to release neurotransmitters, the chemicals found in the brain,
and endhorphin encephalin that serves to enhance the mood that can change the individual
acceptance of pain or other physical symptoms.
Meanwhile, according to Professor John Gruzelier, a psychologist at the Caring Cross Medical
School, London, in order to induce the brain to do with her left brain provocation to non-active
and provide an opportunity for the right brain to take control of the brain as a whole. This can
be done by making the brain focus on something using voice monotonically with flat intonation
(as if there are important things to note).
In general mechanism of hypnotherapy is strongly associated with human brain activity. These
activities are very varied in each condition is indicated by the brain waves that can be measured
using tools EEG (Electroenchepalograph). Here is described a variety of brain waves associated
with the activity:
Beta (14-25 Hz) (normal);
Attention, vigilance, alertness, comprehension, conditions associated with higher anxiety,
discomfort, the condition of the opponent / running
Alpha (8-13 Hz) (meditative);
Relaxation, super learning, relaxed focus, light trance, increased production of serotonin, a
pre-condition of sleep, meditation, early access to the subconscious (unconscious)
Theta (4-7 Hz) (meditative);
Dreaming sleep (REM sleep / Rapid Eye Movement), increased production of catecholamines
(vital for learning and memory), increased creativity, emotional experience, has the potential to
change attitudes, increase in recall of learned material, hypnogogic imagery, deep meditation,
deeper access to the mind subconscious (unconscious)
Delta (0.5 - 3 Hz) (sleeping in);
Dreamless sleep, growth hormone release, non-physical condition, lost consciousness on the
physical sensations, access to the subconscious (unconscious) and gives a very deep sensation

The first cases of tooth extraction using hypnosis was first performed in 1823. Followed by the
process of childbirth using hypnosis in 1826.
During World War I and World War II, hipnoteprapi used to treat the soldiers who experience
trauma. In 1955, British Medical Association states that hypnosis is used to treat hysteria viable
and used as an anesthetic. In 1958, the American Medical Association made the same
statement as well as harsh criticism directed hypnosis as entertainment / performances (stage
performance). In 1960, the American Psychology Association established the feasibility of a
board of assessors hypnotis.

Hypnosis has shown its presence gradually along with the increasing acceptance in the medical
world. Hypnosis is widely used in the field such as medicine and exercise to change the

Neuro Linguistic Program (NLP)
Neuro Linguistic Program (NLP). is an i metodolog developed by Richard Bandler John Grinder
together in the 1970s. Journal of Modern Psychology says "NLP may be the most powerful
vehicle for change in existence".
The core of NLP is the understanding of how individuals can do the whole activity is perfect, by
studying models of human excellence. NLP identify and define the process and the mindset of
every top performance to find the difference between competence and excellence. NLP can be
decomposed into three parts, namely Neuro refers to the neurological processes of seeing,
hearing, tasting, inhaling or touching, which then form the experience. Liguistic refers to the
way we use language to represent, organize experience and communicate with others.
Programming refers to the strategies and techniques used to organize the internal process that
will ultimately bring the final result.
NLP will be more efficient when combined with the hypnotic experience. Bandler believes that
hypnosis is a natural part of everyday life - we use it to influence others, to imagine what others
think and to repeat the experience in our minds. One of the hypnotherapist is modeled by
Bandler and Grinder are the Milton H. Erickson, MD.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a set-oriented method of the body's energy system, to
release the individual from emotional and physical disorders.

representation of the poor. This condition continued by disturbances in the body's energy
system. EFT is very effective to restore the body's energy system.
