What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a very natural state of mind that takes place in the "theta" state. This state is known to take place
 during day dreaming when the mind is in a 'wandering" mode.  An example
 of this is when a person is driving on the freeway and realizes he or she has missed their exit.  Since
hypnosis operates in this mode of receptive relaxation, the unconscious mind becomes more
responsive to hypnotic suggestion.

Hypnosis FAQ's

Why does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis works in conjunction with a persons true intent.  Once a person decides on positive change, hypnosis becomes a
 reinforcement  to whatever their desired goal is.  That is what clinical hypnosis is most beneficial for. A persons true
desire to bring upon change in their life.

How many sessions does it take?

That is  entirely dependent of the individual and the condition they are seeking help for, and how deep rooted the issue may be.
In many cases it takes only one session for hypnosis to make wonderful improvements. Again, depending on the
issue and the person at hand.  A session can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and can be used for several sessions
if needed.

Limitations of hypnosis

Bottom line. Hypnosis cannot and has never been able to force a person to do what they would not normally do in
normal waking consciousness.  An example of this is if a person refuses to change a behavior or habit, hypnosis
will not assist them against their will.
