Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of consciousness in which one is simultaneously deeply relaxed and alert. It bares little similarities to the myths perpetuated by the entertainment industry and media. It is not mind control and one is not made to do or say anything they do not want to do or say.
When hypnosis is used therapeutically it is call “hypnotherapy”. The goals of hypnotherapy can be wide ranging. It can be used to aid in strengthening one’s will and perception in a positive way. It is a safe and natural way to address dysfunctional habits, anxiety, stress-related problems, pain management, and it can aid in one’s studies, sports performance, personal development and much more. During a typical session, the suggestions made are designed to assist and inspire one in achieving their personal goals.
