Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis Sessions


Frequently asked questions

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis involves the induction of a calm, relaxed state in which you are highly susceptible to directions or suggestions from a trained hypnotist. Similar to daydreaming, hypnosis allows you to focus on the immediate moment, blocking out other images, sounds, or thoughts. Hypnosis can be used to improve behaviors (e.g. help someone quit smoking) and treat a number of conditions, including stress and anxiety. When hypnotized, an individual is not asleep or in some eerie trance state. There is no surrender of mind or control. A hypnotized individual is aware of all suggestions and will do anything that violates their personal standards of behavior or integrity. When brought out of hypnosis, they are able to recall everything that took place. Hypnosis is a very normal, natural state that we are all born with.
