What hypnosis IS

Hypnosis is a state of pleasant physical and mental relaxation often in a heightened state of awareness. Hypnosis occurs anytime an individual becomes deeply relaxed and/or highly focused. Think about the last time you were driving somewhere, spaced out, and you snapped out of it minutes later. Or if you watch children deeply immersed in the games they are playing. That’s hypnosis, and it occurs naturally on a daily basis. During the hypnosis session the client is neither asleep nor unconscious. In fast, the client generally hears and remembers most of what the hypnotist says. Therefore, the client remains fully in control of his/her actions and feels safe throughout the session.


In this deep state of relaxation and focus our conscious mind steps into the background and we can tap into the subconscious mind, which is the part of our mind where a lot of our thoughts and beliefs, emotions, memories and behaviors originate. In this state, not only are our levels of relaxation and focus increased, but also our suggestibility and imagination. Even in a deep state of hypnosis the client will only follow suggestions and affirmations that are fully in accordance with his/her own morals and value system. We harness this state of relaxation and suggestibility to internalize thoughts and suggestions for the purpose of manifesting desired emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual change.


Hypnosis has nothing to do with submission. It is very essential for the success of hypnosis that the hypnotist and the hypnotized person cooperate during the process.
