What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state. Believe it or not, we all go in and out of hypnosis on a daily basis. Ever drive a frequent, well-known route, only to arrive at your destination with no recollection of getting there? Your conscious mind took the wheel and made all the familiar stops and turns- you didn’t break traffic laws or cause an accident- but your subconscious mind entered a deep state of concentration and relaxation. Another example of hypnosis is going to a movie theater. That big screen only consists of projected images, filmed months or years prior, with actors paid to play a role… and yet you cry, you laugh, and you get angry! What’s happening is that you are allowing your conscious mind to temporarily shut down, and your subconscious mind, which speaks in images and does not know the difference between reality and fantasy, is accepting the movie as truth for a short while.

Hypnosis is, quite simply, a heightened state of relaxation, awareness, and concentration in the mind and body. Because it is a naturally-occurring state, it is not really an appropriate question to ask, Can I be hypnotized? Of course you can! You already have been- many, many times.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool because it allows direct access to the subconscious mind, where we store the majority of our life experiences, beliefs, and messages. Can you remember the best movie you saw in the past year? Can you remember the vividness of your experience? How hard you laughed, or that poignant feeling of sadness the movie invoked, or the anger you might have felt at the injustices inflicted upon your favorite character? Well, take those feelings that you experienced, and consider using this power of the subconscious mind and imagination being applied toward achieving your own goals and overcoming your own obstacles! It is a truly remarkable and empowering experience. Coming out of the hypnotic trance, you will feel exceptionally relaxed and refreshed. Sometimes clients even ask if they can be allowed to stay for just a bit longer.
