How “Mon Ke Niye” works with Hypnosis?
As a doctor, Dr. A Das Mahapatra undergoes certain practices. These are as follows:
- First it is decided whether the patient needs affirmation. If so then first the affirmation gets modeled.
- Secondly the patient is made relaxed to a calm and quite place.
- As a third step he/she is suggested to relax their body. They are advised to close their eyes and make an imagination of waves running down through their relaxed body from scalp to toe. Let them think of getting calm and comfortable and wash out every stress out of their body.
As these are all attained the hypnotist starts with his list of question and answers.
As per the doctor, the questions can be as simple as “Are you feeling relaxed now?” or “Are you feeling heaviness into your muscles?”
As the doctor absolutely feels that the patient is relaxed now he starts with his affirmations that have got created. Typically a hypnotism session can last for a longer period of 15-25 minutes. But if required the time can be expanded as per the doctor’s choice. The thing that remains secret between the patient and the hypnotizer is not mentioning the actual period of time because that can affect their session.
As practiced at “Mon Ke Niye” the hypnotism can for boosting the energy level of the patient or can even improve the mood with relieving tension and stress.
