What is Hypnosis?

​Hypnosis is a heightened state of suggestibility, usually brought about by way of a hypnotic induction. A hypnotized individual may look as if their are asleep, but they are not. Hypnosis does feel very nice and relaxing, almost like taking a nap. The big difference is in what you are guided to experience during the trance.

There are many sensations a person can experience during hypnosis; none of which can cause you harm or pain. Remember,  you cannot be hypnotized against your will, it will only work if you agree to let it happen.

However, most people find that they are so relaxed during a session, they have no desire to move. While in hypnosis, people typically hear and remember everything that is said and, in fact, they can easily speak and respond to questions. Upon emerging from the hypnotic state, clients normally feel very refreshed, relaxed, and motivated regarding the changes they are making in their life.
