Myths and Misconceptions

It's totally out of the question for a person to be mastered, manipulated or put in a trance against his/her will. All states of Hypnosis allow you control.

Is Hypnosis Sleep?

A hypnotized person does not sleep, on the contrary, he/she can be more aware of what is happening in the world around him/her than in a normal state of mind, as the senses usually work better.

Can I be tricked with hypnosis?

Nobody can ever be persuaded against her/his own will. Anyone of normal intelligence and ability to concentrate are able to experience the hypnotic condition (this means that seriously mentally challenged persons, very young children and persons affected by drugs cannot be included in this category).

Will I be powerless?

During the trance you are not immobilized or paralyzed. You know exactly where you are at all times. You can change your sitting position, scratch yourself, sneeze or cough.

Is it a Natural State?

Some examples of everyday states of trance are - daydreaming, crosswords, absorption when reading a book, watching a movie. Some forms of meditation can also be considered trance-like.

Who can perform Hypnosis?

It is important that the Hypnotherapist is trained and certified.
