hypnosis 101

More and more scientific evidence supports hypnosis and hypnotherapy, but unfortunately there is just as much misinformation about it, too.

One of the lingering myths of hypnosis is that a hypnotist can take over your mind and make you do all sorts of things you wouldn’t ordinarily do.

This myth is simply untrue. A hypnotist cannot make you do anything you would not ordinarily do.

There is some debate over whether anyone can be hypnotized. It is true that some people are easier to hypnotize than others.

It would be wonderful if a hypnotic suggestion would be forever embedded into your mind.  One hypnosis session is never enough to accomplish that.  Most times, multiple sessions are required reinforce suggestions until they are not only embedded but remain implanted.

Hypnosis can help with many problems including hypnosis to relieve anxiety, help with depression, PTSD, phobias, sleep disorders and others that may seem more obvious, such as helping with weight loss, smoking and self-esteem.

Did you know you actually experience hypnosis on a daily basis?  If you are so engrossed in a book or in watching a movie you do not hear the phone ring or you do not hear someone calling your name – you were in a state of light hypnosis. Your concentration focused entirely on one thing; the book or the movie and everything else seemed muted.  A hypnotic trance is a similar feeling only that you will be completely engrossed in your own hypnotic journey.
