Want to learn more about hypnosis?

Here are 11 truths about it.

Even if you’ve tried other things to resolve your issue, hypnosis can still work because it works differently- it taps into the power of the subconscious mind where our memories and emotions are stored.

You’ve likely been in a state of hypnosis hundreds of times in your life. Everyday states of hypnosis include: listening to great music, reading a good book, and watching a good movie. A light state of hypnosis is achieved any time you lose track of time.

Your hypnotist has no control over you. Hypnosis stage shows where people do crazy things are for entertainment! That is not what happens in a hypnosis office. Your hypnotist serves as a guide, or coach, its a consensual state. Your hypnotist will work with you to understand your needs and goals, and that will be an important part of the hypnosis process and suggestions they give you while in hypnosis.

We want you to remember all the insight you gain from the hypnosis session, so unless you’re using hypnosis for medical purposes including surgery, you’ll be conscious and alert the whole time.

This means you become aware of things that you have not been aware of before- leading to powerful insight.

Hypnosis can help you change habits, reduce sensation of pain, increase motivation, help you heal from past experiences, help you find lost items, eliminate fear, and help with spiritual growth- plus many other common everyday issues.

Just as our brain can quickly learn a phobia (which is a learned fear) our brain can also learn a new response to an old situation very quickly. The brain is lightning fast and can change using neuroplasticity.

Hypnosis is not a feeling- its a state of mind. Some people feel light- like their floating, some feel grounded and safe- like a tree. Others feel nothing at all, or a light buzzing feeling. They’re all correct- but its different for every person.

Hypnosis is a focused awareness where you are highly receptive to positive suggestion. It is not sleep, nor relaxation. We often have you focus on relaxation in the hypnosis office to help you focus. But there will be many times where you feel excited, or with lots of energy.

Hypnosis helps you tap into your best self- you inherent power. Practice self hypnosis daily to increase focus, concentration and the ability to relax and recharge quickly.

Anyone who is able and willing to follow instructions can be hypnotized, and you cannot be hypnotized against your will. It is a consensual state. It works best when you really want to make changes in your life but are having a hard time doing so or a hard time following through.
