FAQ’s About Hypnosis

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an interaction in which one receives suggestions from their hypnotist in a sleep like trance. The body and conscious mind are in a relaxed state allowing the subconscious to respond to the message being received.

How does the subconscious accept hypnotic suggestions?

Hypnotic suggestions bypass the intellectual mind, called the “conscious” and zero in on the subconscious. When given a new suggestion that is within the bounds of a person’s belief system and moral orientation, the subconscious mind accepts it literally as a new reality. Conscious beliefs and values will not be misdirected by hypnosis.

How does hypnosis help people?

Hypnosis is a process of cooperation between the person’s subconscious mind and the hypnotist. With consent, the person is helped to reprogram unhelpful attitudes and remove unwanted thoughts. It is possible to transform unwanted and limiting behavior to a more positive approach to empower ones life. Hypnosis can help restore a person’s personal state of balance integrated with their physical, mental and spiritual being.

Can any person be hypnotized?

People of average intelligence can be hypnotized in most cases, if they are a willing participant and approach this modality as a constructive tool. The depth of hypnosis varies with a person’s ability to respond. If you are not a responsive subject, you can improve your receptivity to hypnosis with practice.

Are You Hypnotizable?

Some researchers say that certain personality traits help determine our hypnotizability. Take this quiz sponsored by the International Association of Counselors and Therapists to see if you are extremely hypnotizable, slightly hypnotizable or somewhere in the middle.


Is hypnosis medically approved?

Hypnosis is not generally covered by insurance. Health Savings Plans and Flex Savings may be accepted.   You may be able to deduct your session as a medical expense on your taxes if a physician has referred you for smoking cessation or weight management.

Is hypnosis dangerous?

The induction of hypnosis is never dangerous to the subject experiencing it. The participant in the hypnosis session is always in control of themselves. A hypnotized individual cannot be made to bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken. Hypnosis is presented by verbal suggestions, which must be interpreted and processed by the participant.

Are the results of hypnosis permanent?

When there is a desire to achieve a goal, some individuals choose to implement their suggestions to themselves indefinitely, while others may simply need reinforcement. The effects of hypnosis are cumulative. The more the techniques are practiced and suggestions are used, the more permanent the results become. Reinforcement recordings for home use provide additional help.

How powerful is The Hypnotist?

Hypnosis is a consent situation in which 10% of the effort is the hypnotist’s, and 90% is the responsibility of the individual.   The talent for hypnosis lies in the person who is hypnotized.

Did you know?

The American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association have approved hypnosis for use by professionally responsible individuals.
