What Hypnosis IS
Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention. It is like using a magnifying glass to focus the rays of the sun and make them more powerful. Similarly, when our minds are concentrated and focused, we are able to use our minds more powerfully. Because hypnosis allows people to use more of their potential, utilizing hypnosis is the ultimate act of self-control.
What Hypnosis is NOT
You will not become unconscious and you will be aware of everything at all times. Your will is not weakened in any way. You are in control and cannot be made to do anything against your will. You will not begin to reveal information you wish to keep secret. Hypnosis is not sleep.
The science behind hypnotherapy is just now beginning to catch up to reports of its beneficial nature. The scientific community is beginning to rave about the potential benefits of hypnosis and what it does for patients who are looking for a new treatment option.
Hypnosis can also help a patient to develop a deeper understanding of self. Whether a victim of past trauma, or someone struggling with depression who doesn’t quite understand the cause, hypnosis might just be the answer you’ve been looking for.
