Chinotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Although most people react to the word “hypnosis” with reservations, having an association with magicians and illusionists, it is a matter of prejudice.
We most often associate hypnosis with stage hypnosis, ie situations that are shown in movies, in which a “hypnotized” person does unusual, funny, and even unpleasant things. There are no such involuntary actions and unwanted activities in hypnotherapy for several reasons, which will be explained below.
The state in which the hypnotherapist introduces the client is a state of relaxation, ie a state in which we all find ourselves several times in one day (immediately after waking up, before falling asleep, while staring at an interesting movie or other TV program, while we are able to meditations, etc.). Thus, the state in which hypnosis takes place is an alpha to the theta state of consciousness, depending on whether the client is in a state of deep or ordinary relaxation.
