Most people have questions about hypnosis. Hypnosis isn’t magic. It isn’t sleep. Real hypnosis isn’t much like you’ve seen on TV or in the movies. You can’t be “made” to do anything, and you always have free will. You have to demonstrate you can pay attention and follow directions in order to be accepted as a client.
Hypnosis is currently taught at many major medical schools including Harvard Medical School and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. All branches of the military, the secret service, and many law enforcement agencies have used hypnosis for decades. Hypnosis has been part of the healing arts since the 1800s. Top athletes and corporate executives use hypnosis and custom suggestions to sharpen their focus, increase self-confidence and overcome performance problems.
Hypnotists do not diagnose, treat or cure disease. A doctor of psychology treats psychological problems. A licensed counselor works with personal problems like marriage and family issues. A psychiatrist is an MD, can prescribe drugs and treats psychological conditions that require medical attention.
Hypnosis is not the practice of medicine or psychology. Hypnosis is the art and science of suggestion. Completely different even though we frequently work closely with physician referral when requested.
Hypnotists have no need to diagnose, treat or cure disease. That’s because we don’t provide services for any psychological, medical condition or disease. In fact, being psychologically and medically sound is a prerequisite to participating in our programs.
Success using hypnosis assumes only that you lack a workable strategy to relax and achieve your goals. Hypnosis motivates and encourages you to overcome barriers and see your situation differently… maybe more differently than you ever have.
