Better lives through hypnosis

Is hypnosis a medically accepted form of therapy?

Yes. The American Medical Association formally approved hynosis in 1958. Today, it is a widely accepted and successful form of treatment for many conditions.

If I'm anxious, can I be hypnotized?

Yes. Anxious individuals do very well. They may not be able to relax on their own, but with the help of a qualified practitioner, they easily attain a state of relaxation and hypnosis. Often people become so relaxed that they describe the experience as a "mini-vacation." 

Will I fall asleep?

No! You are awake and fully aware of everything that is being said.

Do I lose control?

Absolutely not. Hypnosis allows you to achieve a state of relaxation. However, you are always in control and cannot be made to do anything against your will.

Who can be hypnotized?

Approximately 95% of the population is susceptible to hypnosis. Often, only a light state of hypnosis is required to help a person achieve the intended results.
