Frequently Asked Questions

What Every Client Should Know About Hypnosis and Self-Hypnosis

"Will Hypnosis Work for Me . . .?" Generally speaking, every normal personal is hypnotizable-that is, people with an I.Q. of at least 70 who have no severe mental disorders. Therefore, most anyone can take advantage of our services. With your cooperation and a reasonable commitment, you can expect excellent results with our hypnosis program.

"How Does Hypnosis Work . . . ?" Our minds work on two levels - conscious and subconscious. We make decisions, think, and act with our conscious mind. The subconscious controls our habits. In hypnosis the conscious mind is subdued, while the subconscious becomes more aware. Positive suggestions given by the hypnotist are readily accepted in this altered state. Also, the subconscious is not subject to time. This is why our clients often state that their new habits seem "easy" and "effortless" after hypnosis.

"How Will I Know That I am Hypnotized . . .?" Most people cannot tell the difference between a hypnotized state and a "waking" state. Some people feel relaxed and lethargic, others feel light, some have tingling in their fingers, and so on. If you're a little skeptical, don't worry. Most of our clients were a little skeptical at first. What took their skepticism away? They noticed inexplicable changes in their daily habits and behaviors!

"Is Hypnosis Safe . . .?" Hypnosis is completely safe. You are in control at every moment and can terminate the hypnotic state at any time. Hypnosis is not sleep. You cannot get "stuck" in hypnosis. You cannot be made to do something against your will. Hypnosis is unique, relaxing and fun!

"How Will Hypnosis Help Me Lose Weight ?" Hypnosis can help you change your strategies for eating. If you ate only when you were hungry and stopped when you were full, you would not have a weight problem. Hypnosis programs these "correct" eating strategies into the subconscious. This is why our clients report new behaviors that fee "natural" upon awakening.

"Can Hypnosis Really Help Me Kick My Smoking Habit ?" Because smoking is a habit, it is controlled by the subconscious. Since hypnosis works directly with the subconscious, it is the only method that makes sense. Our skilled hypnotists can help you eliminate the habitual triggers that cause you to light up. The deep relaxation associated with hypnosis usually eliminates the emotional turmoil related to quitting. For most, hypnosis creates an effortless transition to the healthful lifestyle of a non-smoker.
