How does hypnosis work when working with children? If children are under the age of even they are actually in hypnosis or another term would be the alpha/theta brain wave state. So anything we do such as playing make-believe for them is in actuality reality. That is why when children are absorbed in, music, books, television and day-dreaming they are responding with focused attention, imagery, and concentration which results in an emotional and physiological response.
Hypnosis can be used with children for a number of conditions such as:
Enuresis (bed wetting), Insomnia, Migraine Headache, Nail Biting, Pain from Trauma, Tics, Warts, Preparing for Surgery.
Hypnosis is a great adjunct for Asthma, Cerebral Palsy, Diabetes, Drug Abuse, Hemophilia, Malignancies, Obesity, Phobias and Rheumatoid Arthritis,
Hypnosis is a great tool for children to gain self-confidence in school, sports and life.
Hemophilia Case Study
Tommy was fourteen and a victim of hemophilia which is a defective or deficient blood coagulation molecule known as factor VIII.3 Tommy required as many as six transfusions of cryoprecipitate weekly, a very expensive and time consuming treatment. Using hypnosis as an adjunct therapy, Tommy learned how to manage his bleeds drastically decreasing his need for transfusions. This was a significant change for the family financially and in Tommy?s improved mental and physical health.
Hypnosis was used in four ways. First, was ego-strengthening. Tommy was given suggestions that he no longer had to compete with his peer group to be accepted. Second, He was taught to recognize when he was bleeding into a joint very early. Early recognition of internal bleeding combined with increased self-esteem allowed him to stop what he was doing without embarrassment, decreasing the amount of injury. Third, Tommy used guided imagery to create cold at the site of bleeding to slow down blood flow. He also visualized faucets on his blood vessels that could be switched on or off. Fourth, He learned auto-hypnosis which enabled him to reinforce the post-hypnotic suggestions given by the hypnotist.
