Hypnosis has been available for many years. There are myths, misunderstandings and misconceptions about hypnosis.  Recently, hypnosis has been used to help people in many areas  for example child birth,  dentistry, wellness,   sports performance, and education.

I would like to answer some of the most frequently asked questions, to help you determine if hypnosis is for you and  eliminate many of the myths about hypnosis:

How does hypnosis work?

Our brains have a conscious and a subconscious part. While it may seem that our conscious mind is in control as go through our daily lives,  however our subconscious mind really does guides much of what we do—including any of our habits. When you are in the relaxed state know as hypnosis,  your subconscious mind is very receptive to positive suggestions – making this a very effective  and powerful time for communication.

How do I know if I am hypnotized?

Hypnosis is in fact just a natural state of mind that we drift in and out of in our everyday lives. One example is getting so involved in a  a book that you are reading or a movie you are watching, that you are not aware that someone is calling for you. Another instance is the sensation of “automatic pilot” driving yourself to work everyday, some days you dont even remember the drive but you do recall you were aware and attentive to your drive.  Most people cannot actually tell the difference between being hypnotized and a waking relaxed  state. When hypnotized, people experience a deep feeling of relaxation.

Is hypnosis safe?

Hypnosis is completely safe!   You cannot be made to do anything against your belief system or your will. You are aware of everything that is happening during a session.  Hypnosis is a relaxing, safe, positive, and enjoyable experience.
