What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is possibly as old as mankind itself. The old myths
and misconceptions about hypnosis have given way to proven,
scientifically sound applications. Today, the use of hypnosis is
seen in a variety of fields, including medicine, dentistry, law
enforcement, professional sports and education.
Most people have limited understanding of the positive results that
can be achieved in a professionally controlled hypnosis session.
We would like to dispel some of those myths and answer the most
frequently asked questions about hypnosis.
How does Hypnosis work?
Our minds work on two different levels - the conscious and
the unconscious. We make decisions, think, and act with our
conscious mind. The unconscious mind controls our habits. In the
relaxed state known as hypnosis, we can communicate directly
with the unconscious mind. This is why it is so quick and easy
to change habits of a lifetime with hypnosis.
Will Hypnosis work for me?
Generally speaking every normal person is "hypnotizable"
(that is, people with an IQ of 70 or more and no severe mental
disorders). Therefore, virtually anyone can achieve successful
results using hypnosis.
How will I know if I am hypnotized?
Most people cannot tell the difference between the
hypnotized and waking states. Some people feel relaxed and
lethargic, while others feel a lightness. One thing that people
do notice is an inexplicable change in their daily behaviours.
Is Hypnosis safe?
Hypnosis is completely safe. You are aware and in control at
all times and can terminate the session at any moment you wish.
Hypnosis is not sleep, nor can you get "stuck" in a state of
hypnosis. You cannot be made to do something against your will.
Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing and enjoyable experience.
