IN A WORD, THAT’S HYPNOSIS
Hypnosis is a natural, established medical treatment that allows you to open your unconscious mind to new suggestions for healing and change. It is safe, generally free of side effects, and can be used in combination with traditional medical treatments. Best of all, hypnosis is a skill that is uniquely yours.
Once you have it, you can use it — now and in the future.
Most likely, you have already experienced it.
Have you ever lost yourself so completely in music, a book, or a movie that you became temporarily unaware of the passing of time? Most of us have experienced these everyday hypnotic moments. That is one of the reasons why medical hypnosis seems so natural — because it builds on experiences that virtually everyone has already had.
You’re in Control.
During hypnosis you remain very much in control of yourself and your actions. In fact, it is nearly impossible to be forced to do something in hypnosis that Control with your personal ethics or morals. For the same reasons, hypnosis will not interfere with your religious beliefs or spiritual practice.
Studies show that the vast majority of people are able to experience some degree of hypnosis. You cannot, however, be hypnotized against your will.
The brain wave patterns of people under hypnosis show that the mind is quite active in trance, with activity patterns similar to those seen in someone who is intently concentrating on solving a problem.
