Another common myth about hypnosis is that you lose control when hypnotized. Darren says, “The opposite is true, hypnosis gives you more control to change habits, thoughts and behaviors. The Hypnotist cannot make you do or say anything that you do not want to.”
This is the one day that the entire Hypnosis community has dedicated to spreading the word about Hypnosis. Many cities and towns across the world have officially declared every January 4th as World Hypnotism Day!
Hypnosis is being used as an alternative healing technique by more people and for many types of issues. Darren explains, "The use of hypnosis as a viable therapeutic modality is becoming more accepted today than ever before. Hypnosis allows you to use the natural power of your subconscious mind to make positive changes in your life.”
Some common uses of hypnosis include: smoking cessation, weight loss, sports performance, stress relief, overcoming fears and phobias, pain relief, and as an adjunct to many medical issues.
