WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is a natural state of physical relaxation and mental focus in which the critical conscious mind is bypassed, so that positive, goal-oriented suggestions can be delivered directly to one’s subconscious. The Subconscious Mind is the part of your brain that controls how you think, feel, and behave. This temporary state of focused attention can be influenced by oneself or by a trained hypnotist. Once in this state, your subconscious mind is more open to positive, empowering suggestions. Hypnotherapy is the second oldest profession in the world. It has been used since the ancient sleep clinics in Egypt, China, India and Ancient Greece. Hippocrates was, in fact, a hypnotherapist working in the sleep clinic in Kos and his oath contained not only “I will do no harm” but also “I will not administer poisons nor shall I cut”. Psychology, Counseling and Modern Pharmaceuticals are all New Kids on the Block. The term “Hypnosis” was introduced back circa 1848 by James Braid. In 1899, the British Medical Association set up a committee of eleven doctors to investigate Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy. They concluded that it was both scientifically and medically proven to be a sound healing modality. The American Medical Association approved of it in the 1950’s.
WHO IS IN CONTROL?
You will be in control at all times. Hypnosis is a consent situation (between client and hypnotist) as well as a cooperative process. The hypnotist will use methods/techniques to train you, and it is your responsibility to want to make those changes and implement them. You will remember everything that happens!
CAN ANYONE BE HYPNOTIZED?
Yes, anyone who wants to be, since all Hypnosis is voluntary. There are three exceptions to the rule: 1) Those who don’t want to be hypnotized; 2) Those who cannot concentrate at all, including people with extreme hyperactivity, very low IQ’s, or those under the influence of drugs/alcohol; and 3) Those who refuse to cooperate or follow directions.
WHAT IS SELF-HYPNOSIS?
Self-hypnosis is the ability to give suggestions directly to your own subconscious mind without the help of a hypnotist.
HOW CAN SELF-HYPNOSIS HELP ME?
You can learn quickly and effectively how to relax under stress and pressure, how to program your mind and body for the attainment of physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual goals, and how to regain the power of choice in your life. Through self-hypnosis, you will develop more confidence in both yourself and your abilities.
