So, what exactly is Hypnosis and How does it work?
In order to really understand hypnosis - it's important to first dispel a few of the myth's. It's not sleep, though it's common for your attention to drift periodically during a session. Going to sleep is not what you'll be doing.
Secondly, it's not mind control - it cannot make you do something you don't want to do.
Instead, hypnosis is a powerful tool that can assist you in re-enforcing and strengthening decisions you've already made for yourself and that you want to re-enforce.
When you utilize it properly, you can gain significant leverage over unhealthy, unproductive, or unwanted habits. Especially the ones you often do without thinking - only to catch yourself after the fact. This can result in quitting smoking far easier than ever before, losing unwanted pounds naturally and easily, without drugs or diets, and without it being a constant struggle. You can even use hypnosis to reduce stress and maintain a healthy mind
What is the difference between Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy invokes a partnership with a client to bring about change by finding out what is really holding them back or what their false beliefs are. Then hypnosis is used to correct the problems and/or issues. A hypnotherapist generally has more experience and knowledge in the field of mind science and psychology. For example, they usually require a detailed client consultation prior to conducting hypnosis.
Is Hypnosis commonly used?
Clinical hypnosis is endorsed by the American and British Medical Associations. It is part of the curriculum at such prestigious places as most branches of the US Military, Harvard, Yale, and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. It is routinely used by law enforcement, professional athletes, coaches and business executives to improve performance and "get over" areas in which they might be stuck or held back from ideal performance.

Some interesting Hypnosis facts:
Fact - Everyone is capable of being hypnotized. In fact, in a strange twist - those who believe that they cannot be hypnotized are actually some of the most hypnotizable people, because they have already self-hypnotized themselves into believing that it won't work on them.
- There are no cases of hypnosis treatment
causing any physical or psychological issues. It is 100% natural and is no more dangerous to your brain than daydreaming or sleeping. In fact, it is actually good for your mind, which is why Albert Einstein used it every day. Therefore, those who claim it is unsafe, are simply uneducated in the field.
- Following a hypnosis session, some people do report having strange or vivid dreams while sleeping, which is actually normal. However, they also report sleeping much better and the dreams usually end after just a few nights.
- You may feel slightly tired but also refreshed
after a hypnosis session similar to how you feel
after getting a good night sleep.
- Hypnosis is not sleep. If you have ever tried
hypnosis and fell completely asleep during the
session, then it was not done correctly. It may feel like a dream-like state to some
people but you do not actually fall
- You are fully awake during a hypnosis session. In
fact, you should pretty much
remember the entire session with no
problems. The suggestions may seem a bit
fuzzy due to being in a deep relaxed state but
you should never wake up from a hypnosis session
wondering where you are or how you got
- You are fully aware of what is happening
to you during hypnosis. This debunks the myth of
alleged cases of practitioner misconduct occurring due to a loss of awareness or control during a hypnosis session. In fact, courts of law have recognized and ruled that if someone does something while under
hypnosis, it is because they truly wanted to do
it and not because they were being hypnotized
into doing it.
- Stage hypnosis for entertainment might be fun to watch but it is NOT clinical hypnosis. When people attend a nightclub show, they want to have fun and cut loose. Therefore, people bark like a dog on
stage because it gets a laugh. Since everyone
else is doing it, they will look and feel like
the outcast if they do not join in on the fun
and go along with the crowd. Not to mention they
are getting their 15 minutes of fame by being on
Final Fact - Hypnosis describes a state of mind, but it's not actually a program itself. It's important to remember this because many people believe that all hypnosis service providers do the same thing, when this is simply not true. Read More
