The doorway to success in Hypnosis is the Unconscious Mind. Your Unconscious Mind not only holds information that is outside your consciousness, but it also manages sensations and body functions. A moment before reading this sentence, you probably were not aware of feeling your feet against the floor, or your back against the chair. You have sensations coming to your body all the time, but you remain unaware of most of them. In addition to managing all these sensations, your Unconscious Mind keeps your heart beating, your blood circulating, your digestion working, and your lymph system operating… and makes your eyes blink without your conscious awareness. It is exciting to know that your Unconscious Mind manages all of that with perfect precision.

Ok, So How Does It Work?
It is simple really! We go into Hypnotic States all the time without even realizing it. While driving in a car or watching television. Hypnotic States occur even while jogging or speaking to a friend on the telephone. When your eyes are fixed and you use your peripheral vision you are actually in a Hypnotic State.
A Hypnotherapist or Hypnotist takes you into a slightly deeper state using sounds, colors, words, and movements. The Hypnotherapist uses guided imagery and relaxation techniques to assist the client into their preferred state to access information the client already has inside of them. The Client is always in control in the session. You simply will not do anything you do not want to. All Hypnosis is self Hypnosis.
There are many therapeutic uses for Hypnosis. From weight loss to stress management. There aren’t many things it isn’t beneficial for.
