Ultimately there are two forms of age regression each one used for a specific application: The first is called memory regression, the second is call revivification:
Memory regression involves the act of experiencing the regression from a disassociated state. What this means is that the subject is experiencing it as an observer. Separate to what is happening. When describing the event the individual recalls it in the past tense. Memory regression can be used when the regression may be too emotionally intense for the person or where revivification could pose a risk to the person’s well being. This disassociated state allows the individual to keep enough of a distance to be objective about the experience and thus avoid potential abreaction.
Revivification is where the subject experiences the regression in the first person. They experience it as if they were there. When describing the event the client will speak in the present tense. This form of age regression is generally considered to be more effective that memory regression. Revivification, due to its realistic nature can cause abreactions. This includes crying, trembling and other uncontrolled emotional behavior. The hypnotherapists must be able to handle any abreactions that occur and take appropriate steps to remove the subject from the regression and restore them to a positive emotional state without an adverse outcome. It may not be suitable for all clients or issues because of this.
Note: Regression whilst being a powerful tool for change is not always required as there are other methods which can achieve the same outcome.
