Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis
What is Hypnosis?
According to the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, hypnosis “is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention.” It is different from sleep, although people who are hypnotized are very relaxed, usually have their eyes closed, and may appear to be asleep.
What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?
Most healthy people experience a "trance state" several times a day, most often when they become absorbed in a repetitive task such as driving, or when focusing on a compelling book or activity. Most people experience a very relaxed, lethargic and in a pleasant state of mind when undergoing therapeutic hypnosis. Many people are surprised by how “normal and natural” hypnosis feels.
How Is Hypnosis Used In Clinical Settings?
Hypnosis is commonly used in medicine, dentistry, and in psychotherapy and behavioral medicine. According to the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association, hypnosis can be used for gastrointestinal disorders like ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, and Crohn’s disease; to relieve many forms of acute and chronic pain, such as labor pains, burn pain, or pain from surgical or dental procedures; and to relieve nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy and pregnancy.
Hypnosis is also effective for behavioral and mood problems such as test anxiety, addiction, depression, guilt, insomnia, compulsive eating, migraines, nail biting, obsessions, organization problems, phobias, low self esteem, shyness, smoking, stress and anxiety, teeth grinding, and more.
Over 3,000 clinical studies of hypnosis have proven its effectiveness and safety in medical and dental applications.
Can Anyone Be Hypnotized?
Virtually all healthy people over age 8 can be hypnotized, although some people respond better to hypnotic suggestion than others. There is some evidence to indicate that people with higher intelligence and greater creative abilities tend to be somewhat more responsive to suggestion.
Is Hypnosis Dangerous?
Unlike pharmaceuticals, hypnosis is completely natural and has not been shown to cause any negative side effects. However, because the trance state tends to be extremely relaxing, it's not recommended while driving or operating machinery.
Why Do People In Stage Shows Sometimes Do Outrageous Things While Hypnotized?
You will do not anything under hypnosis that is against your will or that violates your own sense of morals or sense of self-preservation. Stage hypnotists carefully screen volunteers to choose people who are highly suggestible, will enjoy being the center of attention, and are willing to perform for others' entertainment. In other words, by selecting very specific types of people as volunteers, stage hypnotists try to choose people who may already be prone to follow "outrageous"
