WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is a powerful state of focused awareness that can be used to uncover and dissolve the root cause of many issues people suffer from everyday.
Hypnosis allows you to access all the healing resources inherent within the subconscious mind, promoting natural healing from within.
Hypnosis has been sanctioned and used by the medical community since 1958 to help patients overcome chronic pain, create anesthesia, and heal psychogenic illnesses.
I WANT TO GET THE MOST OUT OF HYPNOSIS
WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions! Your active participation and dedication will be crucial to your success. Hypnosis will not work if you do not want to be doing it in the first place. You have to be ready to make changes and to do the work that is necessary to feel better and to change your circumstances for which you are seeking help with.
IS HYPNOSIS SLEEP?
Definitely not! It is not sleep. When you are sleeping we would not be able to do the work that needs to be done to help you feel better. In hypnosis we may use terms like sleep, but we really only mean go deeply relaxed and close your eye’s like you are sleeping.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU'RE IN HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis feel differently to everyone. Some describe it as pure relaxation while others feel "floaty" and some feel heavy.
Here are some examples:
Losing track of your exit while driving, often called "Highway Hypnosis". This is probably the most commonly cited state of naturally occurring hypnosis.
Notice a bruise or cut on your arm, but unable to recollect when the injury may have happened.
Reading a good book or watching a movie and losing track of time. Have you ever heard someone say, "Where did the time go?"
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The average number of sessions is 5, but some people may need more. Once you have addressed the issue(s) you have come in for, if you feel you need to brush up once in awhile, you can always schedule an independent session or two to get you feeling your best.
CAN I BE HYPNOTIZED?
Yes of course! You've already been hypnotized anytime you watched an enjoyable movie or read a good book. Hypnosis is a normal and natural state of mind that everyone has already experienced. Actually, it's such a normal state of mind that most people don't realize they are hypnotized.
All you need to do to go into a state of hypnosis when coming into Northwest Hypnosis Center is be willing and able to follow gentle instructions for reaching a state of focused awareness.
