How Can Hypnosis Help?

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a pleasant state of relaxation created with words allow the subconscious mind to be receptive to positive suggestions in its thought processes.

Suggestions given under hypnosis are more powerful than those given when the person is conscious, because the suggestions are given directly to the subconscious mind.

Under hypnosis, people are not asleep. They are actually awake. They are aware of everything going on around them and of everything that is being said to them. If asked, they could recall everything that took place while under hypnosis. Hypnosis is a natural state that we all experience everyday.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Hypnosis allows you to enter a heightened state of suggestibility to create more effective communication with the subconscious mind, the area where all of your habits and impulses are formed. Hypnosis makes it easy to replace unwanted habits and impulses with more positive relaxed ones.

Is Hypnosis Dangerous?

No. Under hypnosis, you are aware of all of the suggestions you receive. You will not do anything that is against your well-being or safety. Should an objectionable suggestion be given while under hypnosis, you would either ignore the suggestion or would bring yourself out of hypnosis.

What Can Hypnosis Do For Me?
