Ever wondered what is hypnosis?

Ever wondered what is hypnosis?

Do you remember these shows in the 90’s when famous show masters performed stage hypnosis and made volunteers out of the audience bark like a dog or walk like a duck? All for the sake of entertainment, but maybe this is what mostly pops in our mind when we hear “Hypnosis”, doesn’t it?!

So, if you ever wondered if hypnosis is just an esoteric woo-woo evergreen, which finds its way back to the wellness industry every here and then, we can assure you it is not.

Hypnotism as a term has actually been around since 1841. It was approved for pain management by the British Medical Association in 1955, and the UK’s Royal Medical Society has an active Hypnosis & Psychosomatic Medicine branch. So if the Royals believe in it, shouldn’t we take it more seriously?

Hypnosis is real and a powerful tool to initiate transformation processes. It is simply a state of mind, which some people find similar to daydreaming, with inner focus and concentration, that can help to reprogramme the subconscious mind (90% of your brain) open itself more to suggestion and change.

Hypnotherapy is a very popular complementary therapy for helping to change people’s thoughts, feelings, and habits. Hypnotherapists see clients for a wide range of reasons, including anxiety, stress, fear, anger, traumatic memories, pain management, quitting smoking, and losing weight. It can also help to boost confidence and motivation.

And if you wondered: No - the therapist cannot control your mind! This is one of the biggest myths about hypnotherapy and no one is able to control or manipulate your mind unless you let them. Quite the opposite most people report having a heightened sense of awareness, concentration, and focus, and can even hear more acutely during a session.
