Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis through your subconscious mind heals the memory and breaks the old tapes that have been rolling around in your head for a long time.

Hypnotherapy is an excellent alternative way to change your perceptions, how you feel about yourself, and bring you to your highest good.

Hypnosis is usually performed by a certified hypnotist who utilizes visualization and verbal repetition to induce a hypnotic state. While hypnosis is often described as a sleep-like trance state, it is better expressed as a state characterized by focused attention and heightened suggestibility. People in a hypnotic state often seem sleepy and zoned out, but in reality they are in a state of hyper-awareness.

What is the science behind hypnosis?

Research has shown it can act on multiple brain regions, including some linked to pain perception and regulation. 

Hypnosis has also been found to quiet parts of the brain involved in sensory processing and emotional response.

Hypnosis is a means of enhancing mind-body control. Instead of allowing pain, anxiety or other unhelpful states to run the show, hypnosis helps people to exert more control over their thoughts and perceptions.

What does hypnosis feel like?

Hypnosis can be compared to guided meditation or mindfulness; the idea is to set aside normal judgments and sensory reactions, and to enter a deeper state of concentration and receptiveness. 

One can compare hypnosis to losing oneself in a book or movie—those times when the outside world fades away and a person’s mind is completely absorbed in what you are reading or watching.
