Reality or Imagination?

Myth buster #11 – What happens in hypnosis is made up in your imagination
First, I’ll say to that, if you get the placebo instead of the medicine, do you care as long as it works? 
Using the incredible imaging technology we now have, (like Pet scans and fmri’s) we understand a lot more about how and why hypnosis works. Research has been done that shows the brain can perceive what is vividly imagined to be real. That is why we use imagery and emotion extensively in hypnosis to create the desired result. (Watch for an upcoming video on what happens in the brain during trance!)
A Victoria client was in chronic pain. I led him through a technique to imagine he could numb his hand, then transfer that numbness to the place of his pain. When he said his hand was numb, I placed 5 clothespins on it, and he barely felt them. After suggesting he let his hand return to normal sensations, he severely reacted when I tried to put one clothespin on his hand. He now effectively uses this technique to manage his levels of discomfort.
Hmm, perhaps Einstein was right when he said “Logic will get you from A to B, Imagination will take you everywhere.”
