In part one we covered 2 options on how to stay young when it comes to stress management. In part 2 we hit on what to many is a fountain of youth that is just a phone call and appointment away.
Choice 3 is by far the best choice, but there are still a number of people who will be hesitant to go to the type of professional that can help the most. The reason is many people only see one small part of this very powerful medicine of the mind when it is applied in entertainment and not therapy. We are talking about Clinical hypnosis and not stage hypnosis that is used for entertainment. Because stress is targeting our subconscious mind, it is best to go there and deal with it.
Going to a Clinical Hypnotherapist will teach you all the same things counseling would, but it also has the added bonus of changing how you react to stress. It is like leaving your car in a garage when that snow storm comes, there is no need to clean it off. Think of it this way, your first day on the job and you are anxious and are looking to make a good first impression. There is a certain amount of stress associated with day 1. But after you have been there a while, all what was going on during day 1, does not even happen. You have developed a certain comfort with the job although nothing has changed except your perception.
Hypnosis has the same effect with stress. Just as hypnosis is great for overcoming a phobia by changing the perception of what triggers the phobia, it does the same for stress. It simply keeps your reaction to stress closer to a normal range and not exploding all over the place. When that happens your body is not triggered to produce the hormones that are associated with stress and premature aging. Hence the wonderful fountain of youth is all about drying up the fountain of aging, and clinical hypnosis does that extremely efficiently.
So simply put, hypnosis holds one of the newly discovered keys to staying young. Newly discovered means newly discovered by the general public, clinical hypnotherapist knew this right along. However the fear some have heightened by Hollywood’s fictional portrayal of hypnosis has kept people from this fountain of youth.
Unfortunately depending on where you are in the world, locating a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist can be easy or hard. In the west there are plenty to choose from. However in Asia it is slim pickings to say the least. It is also important that they received their education in the west. The reason for this is most of the stress is west culture related. Asia is more laid back so a clinical hypnotherapist from the east may have not received the proper training to deal with western culture based stress.
Connecting the Dots did a search and only came up with a very few names in Asia. After contacting them by e-mail and then by phone (to research this story) we concluded that one of the best western educated clinical hypnotherapist is an American located right in Bangkok. Singapore and Tokyo also have western educated clinical Hypnotherapists but they are from Asia. All have indicated that people have come great distances to see them because there are simply non in Asia.
