What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of consciousness involving lowered brain wave activity, deep relaxation of the conscious mind, and focused attention of the subconscious mind.  In this state, the conscious mind is on pause so the subconscious mind is focused and open to positive suggestions. This allows for change and individual goals to be achieved.

How do people become hypnotized?

The most common process to induce this pleasant state of hypnosis is through the use of relaxation techniques that generally include focused breathing, visualization and guided imagery. These methods quiet the conscious mind and engage the subconscious mind.

Can I be Hypnotized?

Yes, everyone has the ability to be hypnotized because it is a natural and normal state that we enter at least twice a day when falling asleep and waking.  In fact, we all go in and out of hypnosis many times during the day. Have you ever missed your exit on the highway, daydreamed during a meeting or got caught up in a good book or TV show? Well, then you were in a light state of hypnosis.

Can hypnosis make me say or do something I do not want to?

No. You are always in control. You will say only that which is agreeable and within your moral and ethical code.

How quickly will I get results from hypnosis?

The strength of your desire and commitment to make change is key to your success. It also depends on the issue being addressed. Some things can be accomplished in a single session. Other goals such as stress relief, medical challenges, eliminating habits, weight management and fertility may take more.
