Hypnoanalysis is an advanced psychotherapeutic technique that utilizes the psychoanalytic methodology in a hypnotic context. Born a century ago, it brings together the legacy of the psychoanalytic paradigm in its various forms and it is characterized by a high creative potential and by the ability to identify and re-move unconscious conflicts in times usually much faster than those necessary for the analytic process. Hypnoanalysis mainly uses age regression or revivification and, therefore, preferably requires highly hypnotizable subjects. Another central element of the hypnoanalytic process is the analysis, and mostly important, the induction of nocturnal "spontaneous" and hypnotic dreams (oniro-hypnosis). Alt-hough unjustly obscured first by psychoanalysis and then by ericksonian methods, hypnoanalysis claims its specificity and its extraordinary effectiveness in the con-ditions of use. It has had the great merit of combining creativity and incisiveness of the hypnotic medium with the "search for meaning" of the psychoanalytic ap-proach, capturing the best of both.
