Q: What is Hypnosis?
A. Mabey I should start with what hypnosis is NOT. Hypnosis is NOT sleep. You are totally aware during hypnosis! Hypnosis is NOT someone controlling you! All hypnosis is SELF HYPNOSIS… you are making the changes yourself. Hypnotherapists are guides, directing you to make any changes you want to make on a subconscious level, without conscious effort. The process of hypnosis makes it easy for you to be and to do what you choose.
Hypnosis is a state of awareness dominated by the subconscious part of the mind. This state of awareness allows non-critical acceptance and integration of selected thoughts, and ideas, resulting in corresponding modifications of perspectives, beliefs, attitudes, feelings, actions, and therefore… RESULTS, no matter where they come from.
What does all this mean? It really means you have the power and ability to make any changes you choose to make, be who you want to be, attract what you want in your life, change any old habit patterns. Out with the “usless” information and in with some new desires and thoughts! Life is like weeding a garden… we need to pull a few weeds, no matter where they came from (past conditioning, families, companies, etc.) and plant a few new seeds (like happiness, success, relaxation, good health, stress reductions, etc.) to be healthy. If the mind can think it, dream it, imagine it, you can have it!
Many people have a false impression of what hypnosis is because of movies or television. Directors are entertaining people rather than educating them. Hypnosis was recognized and accepted by the American Medical Association in 1958, British Medical Association in 1955, Catholic Church approved hypnosis as a therapeutic tool in 1957. U.S. Department of Labor assigned hypnosis #079.157.010 as an approved occupation and hypnotherapy was assigned procedure code #90880. Some insurance companies will reimburse if recommended by an M.D. or health care physician. Hypnosis is actually a SCIENCE that has had many names since the beginning of time. Since it is a science, it is best if you work with someone well trained in medical hypnosis for best results.
Entering into hypnosis is a natural, and pleasant experience, something we do everyday, all day and night. All hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis. You are doing it; the hypnotherapist is simply your guide. Many times hypnosis is called guided imagery. We live in a state of hypnosis without knowing it. When we day dream, when we drive without realizing it, stare and don’t see anything because we are thinking or contemplating, all of this and even more is actually hypnosis. We are in and out of hypnosis all day long. We intentionally relax the body, release negative thinking and habits, and direct you to make the new changes you choose in your life. Many people actually need to be de-hypnotized from past conditioning: like believing cigarettes are “cool”, “you’ve come a long way, baby”, the Marlboro man, etc. Our conscious mind knows better, however, the subconscious has old conditiong and recordings and gives it back automatically.
Remember, you will NEVER say or do anything you do not want to do, and we can’t make you! However, if you want to make changes, we can make it the easiest thing you have every done. It usually takes just one session, a total of 3 hours, and most times a variety of beehaviors can be work with in just one session.
