With all the myth and mystery around hypnosis, it’s no wonder people question whether it really works. Does hypnosis have the power to change a person’s life, or does the ability exist within each person?

Hypnosis is a natural state. Take a look at a co-worker, spouse or child when they are no longer listening to you. That blank stare tells you they’re in a light state of hypnosis. People automatically go into hypnosis, but they call it zoning out, vegging out or daydreaming.

The difference between daydreaming and being hypnotized is how the state is used. A hypnotherapist uses that state with intention, and for a positive purpose. Hypnosis is actually a form of accelerated learning, directed towards the imagination of the subconscious mind.

Everyone can be hypnotized, but only if they allow it. In hypnosis, no one controls your mind. Despite popular opinion, a person’s ability to be hypnotized isn’t due to gullibility or weak mindedness. The main differences between an easily hypnotizable person and a less hypnotizable person are in the ways they learn, their comfort level, their trust in the clinician and the depth of their desire to accomplish a goal.

Some people are very analytical and others rely more heavily upon feelings. A licensed therapist who is well trained in hypnosis will evaluate your learning style and will speak with you based on your dominant learning style.

When a person is in hypnosis, they usually hear everything the hypnotherapist says. Unlike the movies, a person won’t go into a deep, dark trance, forget who they are and spill their deepest, darkest secrets. A clinical hypnotherapist doesn’t pry for secrets. Instead, the hypnotherapist paints pictures with words, and presents positive scenarios for your imagination to take hold of, moving you towards your goal.

If you have ever tried to stop smoking, drinking or lose weight you know all about that annoying, trouble-making voice in your head that fights against your goal. With hypnosis we quiet that voice and minimize the struggle. We offer that voice a different point of view.

It might surprise you to know that business people use hypnosis to boost motivation, sales and creativity and to quiet anxiety and fear. Hypnosis can diminish the fear of flying and anxiety of cold calling.

It can reduce anger, improve relationships, address sexual problems and eliminate jealousy. How much happier would your household be if you or a loved one could finally let go of an upset that happened many years in the past?

With hypnosis, professional athletes can increase their focus and precision and improve their game. Current research shows that hypnosis minimizes pain, shortens hospital stays and improves health. Why? Because Hypnosis works with your imagination, instead of against it.

After a hypnosis session, a person feels relaxed, inspired and ready to forge ahead. Although the American Medical Association gave Hypnosis their seal of approval in the 1950’s, Hypnosis still remains one of the best kept secrets of our time.

Does Hypnosis really work? You bet!
