Meditation and Hypnosis

Meditation is a wonderful thing and quite like the experience of hypnosis.

Jon Kabat - Zinn, Ph.D., neuro-scientist, University of Massachusett Medical School found meditation shifts brain activity from the right frontal cortex, which is more active when a person experiences stress, to the left frontal cortex, which is more active when a person is calm. This shift decreases the negative effects of stress and mild depression and anxiety.

Dr. Adrian White, University of Exeter, showed people who meditate have increased electrical activity in the frontal cortex, which indicates they are experiencing lower anxiety and a more positive mentall state. Meditation also reduces activity in the amygdala where the brain produces fear.

Meditation is a process with the goal of achieving stillness of mind. Hypnosis also for mind stress management. This is great post.

I have also been interested in how the brain works so I loved reading this. I think it's interesting how hypnosis is used for stress management. I definitely think that's something I will look into myself.

I have been trying to find something or some kind of process that will make me feel better. I've heard that I should look into hypnotherapy. Would anyone be able to give me more information about how hypnotherapy works? I think I may find a place that offers this service in Brighton. http://www.southsidepsychology.com.au/hypnotherapy
