• Hypnosis does not involve mind control, magic, unconsciousness or sleep.
  • You cannot be made to enter hypnosis against your will.
  • Hypnosis is a natural experience that happens to most of us each day when we become absorbed in doing something like driving, working, reading or watching TV.
  • All your senses are awake and alert while you are in a hypnotic state.
  • You are in control at all times while in hypnosis.
  • You only say and do in hypnosis what you would normally say and do in a fully conscious state.
  • You can return to full consciousness any time you either want to or feel the need to.
  • The subconscious mind makes up about 90% of your total mind power and contains a “mental movie” of everything that has happened in your life.
  • As you enter into hypnosis, you bypass the conscious mind and can then access information in the subconscious mind.
  • The use of hypnosis gives you the opportunity to make changes quickly and permanently.
  • Hypnosis was approved for use by the British Medical Association in 1955 and by the American Medical Association in 1958.
  • Hypnotherapy entails the use of trance and suggestion to adjust habits of thought, feeling and behavior.
  • Hypnotherapists use trance and suggestions to help normal people cope with every-day problems of living, such as issues related to jobs, hobbies and recreational activities.
  • Hypnotherapy can also aid in general self-improvement through strategies such as non-clinical stress management.
  • Hypnotherapists work in complementary ways with physicians and other health care providers to help optimize the care patients receive.
  • Hypnotherapeutic results can be restorative, rehabilitative, curative and, seemingly, miraculous.
