Hypnosis is a method of inducing a trance or a dream-like state of deep relaxation in order to treat many disorders of a mainly psychological or emotional origin. In more recent times, hypnosis has become closely associated with Spirituality.
Many people seem to have a preconceived idea of hypnosis, most commonly, that hypnosis is an altered state of mind that brings the subject to a trance where they comply with any instruction. Hypnosis isn’t mind control, it’s an altered state of mind far more open than the normal state.
However hypnosis entails more than just the trance like state you see depicted in many movies and television shows. It is a deep and complicated relationship held between hypnotist and subject.
It begins with a desired set of goals, a purpose to the interaction.
When a subject is under hypnosis they are much more responsive and as they experience their inner world, the subject’s thoughts and suggestions presented by you, the hypnotist, will become part of your subject’s inner world creating a pallet for you to work with and mold into the desired outcome.
Hypnosis is recognised by the scientific community as an effective healing tool. It is not a treatment in its own right, but is used as a part of medical, psychological and dental treatments.
