What Is Hypnosis?
According to the American Psychlogical Association, hypnosis is a cooperative interaction where the patient responds by suggestions given from the hypnotist. It is clinically proven to provide medical and therapeutic benefits especially for reduction of pain and anxiety.
It can be used as a deep healing tool that allows the conscious mind to recede and the subconscious mind in control. What that accomplishes, is a mental shift allowing the client to recieve positive suggestions for a therapeutic transformation. It is the safest means to cure types of mental distress in the shortest possible time and allowing for an extremely effective way to create positive changes.
Many people have been in a hypnotic state such as watching a movie or day dreaming. A person in a hypnosis session is not asleep and can hear what the practitioner is saying, answer questions and conscious of their movements. A hypnotized person is deeply relaxed and aware what is taking place and in some cases can think more clearly.
Hypnosis is aboslutely safe. Clients feel very relaxed as well as alert and more aware. The client maintains full control of their thoughts and action throughout the session
