What is Hypnosis?

What is Hypnosis? 

Hypnosis is simply a relaxed state of focused attention. By temporarily bypassing your conscious mind, it gives you the power to make behavioral changes at a deeper level than when you attempt to make changes at the conscious level. One way to think about it is that Hypnosis Increases the Communication between your Conscious desires, like losing weight and the Unconscious mind, where your True Power to change exists. 

How Does Hypnosis Compare to Other Forms of Therapy?

Hypnosis enjoys a high success rate, and compares very favorably with other traditional therapy alternatives. Compared to other forms of therapy, hypnosis is the obvious choice for many issues. Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. reviewed the overall lasting success of various psychological approaches. This study revealed the following success rates:

Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy — 93% success rate after 6 sessions

Behavior Therapy — 72% success rate after 22 sessions

Psychotherapy — 38% success rate after 60 sessions

(Volume 7, Number 1, Spring, 1970).

Will Hypnosis Conflict with My Religious or Spiritual Beliefs?

This is a common question. First of all, hypnosis does not address anything at the spiritual level.There is nothing "new age" about hypnosis. The benefits are simply designed to help you adopt healthy behaviors.

Almost all Christian denominations accept hypnosis for clinical purposes, as do Judaism and Islam. 

Is Hypnosis Dangerous?

No. The induction of hypnosis is never dangerous to the subject, although personal disappointments may arise because of unrealistic expectations or preconceived information. Hypnosis is not an exact science and no guarantees are offered.

Is Hypnosis Medically Safe?

The American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association have approved hypnosis/hypnotherapy for use by professionally responsible individuals. The British Medical Association also adopted hypnosis as a viable therapeutic tool in 1958.

Can I be Controlled?

Because of the movies and stage show acts, there is a perception that you will lose control when using hypnosis or somehow be under the "power" of the therapist. Nothing could be further from the truth. The power lies in your mind, because while under hypnosis you have greater awareness than when you are fully awake and you retain all the power to select what you want to say or do. You won't do anything in a hypnotic state that you would not find acceptable in your normal awake state. In hypnosis, you will be aware of what is going on and you will find you actually feel you have more control over yourself. The hypnosis is simply increasing your ability to communicate with yourself. "Hypnosis is not mind control. It's a naturally occurring state of concentration; it's actually a means of enhancing your control over both your mind and your body."

— Dr. David Spiegel, Assoc. Chair of Psychiatry Stanford University School of Medicine
