Hypnosis: What it is and Why it is Effective

Hypnosis is a focused state of awareness, similar to meditation, that encourages a relaxed brain wave state, making you naturally more suggestible. It can also be thought of as a method of communicating with your subconscious in a way that works to transform old habits and behaviors and to generate new, beneficial behaviors. Research demonstrates that over 90% of our behaviors are subconscious. Very often our behaviors are a result of beliefs and emotions stored in our subconscious mind, and these behaviors are reinforced through a negative self-dialogue. Through hypnosis you can program a positive inner dialogue, allowing you to transform these patterns and limiting beliefs so that they are aligned with reaching your full potential. Hypnosis makes it easier and faster to release and let go of these subconscious belief systems and emotions that drive our behaviors.
Because you are more suggestible while in hypnosis, positive suggestions are able to sink deeply into your subconscious mind much more quickly and strongly than when you are in a waking state and informed by a resistant critical mind. And rest assured, only suggestions you want to hear will work, hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis. All research has demonstrated that while in the hypnotic state, you cannot be made to do anything against your will. The Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience has successfully demonstrated that a suggestion given in a hypnotic state, even one time, can have the same effect as long-term conditioning and practice.
