Most people think of Hypnosis as a state of sleep, but it is actually a state of hyper awareness. The body is very relaxed. The subconscious mind is very focused and more receptive to suggestions. The subject is always in complete control and aware. We go in and out of hypnosis several times per day. Ever been driving on the interstate and suddenly realized you went more miles than you realized. Have you ever "Zoned Out" while you were watching TV.

When this state is induced by the Hypnotist you are totally focused on whatever you and the Hypnotist have decided to work on. Because you are highly focused under hypnosis, the Hypnotist can help you work on goals and achieve results much easier than through other methods. Hypnosis is a totally safe and effective tool that can help you accomplish goals.

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy has been used for hundreds years to help people make changes in their lives. Hypnosis has been studied through many years of clinical research by famous Psychologists such a Dr. Sigmund Freud (who gave it up and switched to other methods) and Dr. Carl Jung. Dr. Milton H. Erickson, M.D. (1901-1980) who was a highly effective psychotherapist devised countless innovative and creative ways to help people. A master of indirect hypnosis, he used metaphor, surprise, confusion and humor. Hypnotism was accepted by the British Medical Association in 1955 and by the American Medical Association in 1958.

Hypnosis is becoming more and more accepted as a very effective way to bring change into your life. Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, Red Book, Ladies Home Journal, Psychology Today, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Reader's Digest and many more magazines continue to report the benefits of using hypnosis for personal change and health.

Hollywood has painted a picture of the Hypnotist controlling people and putting the subject under the spell of the Hypnotist, but this is only a Hollywood story line. When you see a stage Hypnotist having people clucking like a chicken or engaging in other crazy behavior, this is also staged, they are able to spot people who are exhibitionists and that's who they choose. When you are hypnotized you are always in complete control. If you hear a suggestion that you don't agree with or don't understand you subconscious mind will reject it.

Becoming stuck in hypnosis is a common fear but can never happen. If a subject wishes to end the hypnosis session they can at any time. During hypnosis you are in a hyper-aware state and can come out just by opening your eyes and speaking.
