Hypnosis is not sleep, unconsciousness, mind control or magic. In fact it is a heightened state of awareness. The person is fully aware, in control and able to respond to requests – either verbally or by a signal. No one surrenders control – no magic.
No one can be hypnotized against his/her “will” or made to do anything he/she does not want to do. Anyone of average intelligence and higher can be hypnotized if they chose. Hypnosis helps over-coming fears, eliminating bad habits like smoking and overeating. It even helps with pain control, managing stress and more.
Like daydreaming, hypnosis is a state of calm relaxation and an education-communication process. It allows a person’s conscious and subconscious minds to believe in the same message. Hypnosis can be used to help a person change behaviors they desire to alter . See the list of possibilities below:
- Reduce Stress
- Enhance memory
- Improve athletic performance
- Increase motivation
- Eliminate phobias
- Decrease pain
- Improve sexual function
- Stop smoking
When choosing a hypnotherapist, be sure they are certified in hypnotherapy from a reputable school or organization.
