Review Of Conversational Hypnosis By Igor Ledochowski

REVIEW: Conversational hypnosis

I recently purchased a copy of Conversational Hypnosis program from My company had sent a group of people for training by Igor Ledochowski and those people had been really impressed by him. I decided to give a shot to this course. I am onto 6th session and I will have to accept that it is worth the price tag. One of the guys I know has put up a session by session review of this program on link given below. You can follow -

I started this blog on Igor Ledochowski to post my experiences with the program, however if I do that I will be just copying over the other guys stuff. You can read the stuff on that blog. As far as my experiences are concerned, I have found this program to be immensely powerful and beneficial. The only drawback is that it needs time, you need to practice what he teaches. Like his echoing technique. It is quite simple but you need to practice it in your everyday conversation. This course made me realize how effectively advertisements and sales people use these simple tricks to change your decission. Conversational hypnosis provides the same kind of power to you. Imagine if you had the same kind of power and knowledge that these advertising people use to make you purchase their products. Or the kind of techniques that are used by SWAT teams while dealing with criminals. How easy it will be to manage your kids or colleagues or even your boss. Well that is why companies pay so high to Igor Ledochowski. His training in this regard is simply too good. He has packed the same content in this course and from what I have seen till now. There is no doubt that it works like a magic pill.
Check it out.

Review Of The Session 3

From Conversational Hypnosis - Igor Ledochowski

This session is just in one part so this will be a relatively longer read!

In this session you learn the most important aspect of hypnosis -

"How to get people into trance"

Igor defines Trance as an eloquent sequence of thoughts, ideas and sounds and all those people who have gone through trance by this time describe their experience. You learn how states are important and how do they trigger action. He shows how you can create state that encourages buying behavior, encourage pain relief, enhance the learning process.

Conversational Hypnosis

Four Principles Of Hypnotism

Four time tested principles of hypnosis. These principles were formed by James Braid

  • When practiced professionally by an expert, hypnosis presents no danger or pain or discomfort to the patient.
  • Hypnosis is a field that is going to require a lot more indepth study and research than what is being done now.
  • Hypnosis is a powerful tool that should only be limited in use to medical professions.
  • Hypnosis is not a panacea. It has been successful in treatment of a lot of ailment but is not the final solution. It can only work with proper medical treatment.

James Braid had an interest in hypnotism throughout his life and made major contributions to the therapy that we use today.

A Brief Look Into History Of Hypnosis

Hypnosis has been existing in human civilization for as long as history has been recorded. Infact it predates most of our present practices. Be it greek or phraohs in Egypt, looks like everyone was mesmerized by hypnosis.

However it is Franz Mesmer who is acknowledged as the forerruner to the modern day hypnosis. Franz Mesmer was born in Vienna in 1734. If you have not already guessed it out then the term Mesmerized comes from Mesmer of Franz Mesmer's name. Mesmerized is defined as the process/stage of inducing trance. Franz used to buy the movement of his hands or by moving magnets over people. Franz is credited for the term "animal magnetizm". He was said to be quite succesful in the treatment of various ailments. However the medical community at that time discredited him. He was sanctioned by a committee that had likes of Benjamin Franklin and Joseph Guillotine.

The word "hypnosis" was first used by Dr. James Braid in 1841. He derived this from the Greek word "hypno" which means to sleep. He used to use a shiny object to put people into mesmerism, he used to believe that this shuns their nervous system. He believed that this puts his patients into a "deep hypnosis sleep" in which they were ready to accept his healing suggestions. More on this in next post..

Combining Acupuncture and Hypnosis

"Synergy" is something of a buzzword these days, but it just may be the best way to describe the combined action of two therapies: acupuncture and hypnosis.

My colleague Steven Gurgevich, Ph.D., has been investigating. Steve teaches mind/body medicine at the Program in Integrative Medicine (PIM) here at the University of Arizona, and is a faculty member of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.

He became interested in combining acupuncture with hypnosis through a chance personal experience. One morning, Steve was having a 'bad day' with a headache. Elad Schiff, M.D., a certified acupuncturist from Israel who was also a PIM fellow, suggested performing hypnosis with Steve. Schiff also brought out some of his acupuncture needles.
