What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is the formal process of accessing subconscious thought and then directing it to support intended goals. Think of a hypnotist as a tour guide, who can point out wonderful places in a person's mind, which they may choose to visit.

The hypnotist creates a safe, relaxing environment in which they can direct the subject toward the still, peaceful depths of subconscious thought.

Once in this relaxed state, the hypnotist offers the subject's subconscious mind the assistance it needs by helping them to relax and focus inwardly. Also, because the imagination is part of the subconscious mind and engaging the imagination through the subconsicous mind is part of the hypnotic process, the hypnotist can help the subject create vivid imagery involving goals and desires which can offer profoundly positive results.

Hypnosis is a natural state of selective, focused attention, and, even though it is 100% natural and normal, it remains one of the most fascinating phenomena of the human mind. Our ability to enter this unique state of consciousness opens the door to countless possibilities for healing the mind and body, self-exploration and change.

When the subject enters into a state of hypnotic induction, they can use their thoughts, talents and experiences in ways not usually available to their conscious mind. With the assistance of a trained professional, they can develop and tap latent abilities that enable making desired changes in their thoughts, feelings and behaviors possible. The application of hypnotic suggestion can allow deep and profound changes to be made, changes the subject might not ordinarily be able to make in a conscious state.
