What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of focused consciousness. Your hypnotherapist will assist you in learning how to achieve this state by guiding you into it.  Once this has been achieved, you will then receive what are called hypnotic suggestions. These suggestions will enable you to use the power of hypnosis in your life and make the changes you desire.  

Hypnosis is a tool that can help you just like it has helped millions of other people to take back control of their lives.  It can help you change old habits and to provide you with motivation to do the things that you may have been putting off.  Hypnosis has been sanctioned and used by the medical community since 1958 to help patients overcome chronic pain, create anesthesia, and heal psychogenic illnesses.  Hypnosis and self-hypnosis have been shown to be effective in reducing stress and stress-related illnesses.

Is Hypnosis Safe?

Hypnosis is safe. It is very similar to experiencing a daydream. Usually you will feel relaxed when doing hypnosis.  Hypnosis in and of itself is a very pleasant experience. It is a time to let go of the other thoughts of the day and focus on the issues you came in to work on.  Scientist, medical professionals, psychologists and hypnotherapists have been using hypnosis for over 200 years and no one has ever been hurt by simply going into hypnosis.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the applied use of hypnosis. Therapy can be defined as anything that is done to move someone toward health and wholeness. Thus, hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to help you move toward health and wholeness. 

Hypnotherapy is also used to help you reach goals when nothing else has helped.  Self-hypnosis may also be part of a good hypnotherapy program to help you attain your desired goals.

Can I be Hypnotized?

Of course you can! You already have been. It’s easy to go into hypnosis and it is a normal state of mind that everyone has already experienced.  In fact, hypnosis is such a normal state of mind, most people usually don’t even realize that they are hypnotized.  Normal, everyday hypnosis occurs when you are driving down the road and lose track of time, or, when you are focusing on a book or television program and you don’t even notice something that is going on around you.  

To be hypnotized, all you need to do is to be able to listen and follow the instructions of the hypnotherapist and you can put the power of hypnosis to work for you.  Anyone of at least normal intelligence and the willingness to follow instructions can experience hypnosis and use it to improve his or her life. This includes children and teenagers.

Hypnosis can help you succeed when nothing else has worked!

Hypnosis is one of the fastest growing fields of human achievement. As hypnotherapists we are working with people who are frustrated because nothing else has helped them achieve their goals.  They have tried every other avenue that they can think of without success. We use hypnosis, hypnotherapy and teach self-hypnosis so that people like you can succeed in making important changes.  

Did you know that many of the most successful professional and Olympic teams use hypnosis to help their athletes win? That’s true.  Now you can use this advantage for yourself, whether you are trying to overcome an old problem or if you want to grow to a new level of personal achievement. 

Hypnotherapy can also be used as a complementary treatment for some medical and psychological issues. We can contact your doctor to make sure that using hypnosis is appropriate for your situation.  Appropriate issues may include pain management, stress related illness and any issue that has been labeled psychogenic in origin.

What does it feel like to be hypnotized?

It feels awesome! Being hypnotized is like that feeling you have right before you nod off to sleep at night. You can hear everything that is going on around you.  You simply feel as though you are unwinding in a restful location with your eyes shut.   

The hypnotic experience will feel different for each person. Some people are able to relax completely at the sound of the waves hitting the rocks at the beach while others can reach that state by hearing a loud jackhammer completing road repair. While under hypnosis you will feel calm and relaxed as if you are aware of everything going on around you but simply don’t care.

Will the hypnotist be able to control my mind? 

Not in the least. Nobody under hypnosis can be persuaded to do anything without them wanting to. Whatever moral values you hold in a typical waking state will be the same in hypnosis. 

Your subconscious mind, which contains your values and beliefs, protects you.  Just like you can't be made to do anything against your ethical code, you won't say anything that is humiliating or anything that you do not wish to share. Generally, if a hypnotherapist suggestions clashes with a client’s beliefs, the client will basically bring themselves out of hypnosis; they simply emerge (aka wake up).  You are in total control all the time.

What about hypnotists that make people do ridiculous things, like clucking like a chicken? 

A Stage Hypnotist will cautiously choose individuals from the group of spectators and locate the ones who will best react to Hypnosis.  There is still no control, the individual on the stage enables the experience to be their primary focus while agreeing to go along with the recommendations, examples: barking like a dog or clucking like a chicken.  Any individual that volunteers' is consenting to fill the role, regardless of whether they intentionally admit it or not.

How would I be able to tell if I am hypnotized? 

Many people in hypnosis experience a trance-like state.  Just like getting engrossed in Instagram, watching a captivating movie, listening to your favorite song on the radio or driving on a highway for an extended period of time. 

Here are some sentiments one may encounter when in a hypnotic state: 

1.   Physical body is relaxed (i.e. Head, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, feet, muscles, jaw feel loose)

2.   Mind is relaxed

3.   Eyelids feel very heavy (hard or unable to open)

4.   Feeling of sleepiness as though prepared to snooze

5.   Mouth feeling dry or drooling

7.   Need to swallow

8.   Jerking, twitching, tingling or numbness in any part of the body

9.   Need to smile, laugh or cry

10. Time distortion (minutes feel like hours or other way around)

11. Sounds fading in and out

12. Feeling of floating or lightness

Can I get stuck in hypnosis? 

No. Hypnosis is a very natural state in which you are aware of your surroundings and totally in control. On the off chance that you relax too deep then you would simply fall asleep and once rested naturally open your eyes and become fully alert. It is not possible for you to get lost, stuck or left in hypnosis.

Can I still do hypnosis if I am under a doctor’s care and taking medication?  

If you should have inquiries regarding whether hypnosis will conflict with a current medical condition, please consult your physician.

How fast will I experience results from hypnosis?  

Quick results are dependent upon the client’ s motivation and commitment. Normally a client can experience results even after the first session if they are motivated, committed and able to listen and follow instructions.

Can hypnosis make someone confess?

Hypnosis sessions are kept private and normally can’t be used for court testimony.  It is also not used as an alternative to a lie detector test.  Hypnosis can’t force anyone to “tell the truth” or to confess.

Is hypnosis a miracle cure?

While hypnosis is a moderately fast strategy for making lasting enhancements, there is no such thing as a one-time hypnosis miracle cure! Each individual progresses at their own speed.
