Hypnosis for the Health Professional

The course starts with the basics of hypnotic structure until you have learned the entire inductive sequence. The theoretical part of the course is supported by the real-time demonstration of the described technique and is then followed by practical exercises among participants.
This system guarantees a quick and safe learning of hypnosis mechanisms, facilitating the participants' application of the technique from the first day of the course.  It is not required to have any previous knowledge about hypnotic techniques, because it will be taught during the course. The theoretical part consists of interactive lectures with use of slides while the practical part, the true heart of the course consists of exercises in pairs and / or in groups of three under the supervision and guidance of the teacher. 
The course is designed for health care professionals (doctors, physiotherapists, manual therapists, chiropractors, psychologists) and the first to be very practical.

During the course students will learn the technique of hypnotic induction following didactic rules. Starting from the base, working towards advanced treatment.
Because the course is designed for physical therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and hypnotherapists for whom hypnosis is a tool to achieve better results in the treatment of the patient, Giancarlo Russo will use a fast technique of induction (from 1 to 3 minutes induction), so there is time to do your work as a health care professional (Manipulative, IASTM, Tool, Taping, Massage, Exercise and so on).
