Many people wonder what hypnosis really is and how it’s used to help people. The stage shows and movies using the word ‘hypnosis’ give a very false impression. The ‘mind-control’ image that is so useful in a movie script simply doesn’t exist in real life. If it did, hypnotists could control politicians, bankers, and everyone else like puppets and rule the world!
The reality of hypnosis is much simpler, but both powerful and useful. The Mayo Clinic, perhaps the world’s top medical establishment, defines hypnosis as “a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus, concentration, and inner absorption. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and you can concentrate intensely on a specific thought, memory, feeling, or sensation while blocking out distractions...Therapeutic hypnosis is used to improve your health and well-being and is different from so-called stage hypnosis used by entertainers. Although you’re more open to suggestion during therapeutic hypnosis, your free will remains intact and you don’t lose control over your behaviour.” Hypnosis is really just the delivery system for positive change!
From the Mayo Clinic in America to hospitals across Europe and Australia, hypnotherapy is being used daily to make lives better. Hypnotherapy helps in a wide range of matters, including pain control, improving health, stopping smoking, losing weight, getting fit, and dealing with severe anxiety, fears, phobias, traumas, and so on.
