3 Myths about Hypnosis
No.1 I’m not ‘hypnotisable’
Hypnosis is actually a very natural state of mind that we all go in and out of on a regular basis.
It’s best described as a state of focused awareness and concentration. Whenever we get engrossed in a movie or film. When we drive to work and look back and think I don’t remember that part of the journey. When we are in the zone when at the gym. All are states of trance similar to the one you experience under hypnosis.
We ALL have this capability.
No.2 Hypnosis isn’t real
A study done at Stanford University School of Medicine provided proof that hypnosis is real.
What they discovered was quite amazing. According to Dr David Spiegel research showed that hypnosis acted on multiple brain regions, including some linked to pain perception and regulation.
He suggests that hypnosis is a very powerful means of changing the way we use our minds to control the perception of our bodies.
“Hypnosis is the oldest form of psychotherapy, but it has been tarred with the brush of dangling watches and purple capes" says Dr Spiegel.
No.3 The hypnotherapist is going to brainwash me
During hypnosis you are in fact actually highly engaged and highly focused. You have complete control over your actions and cannot be ‘made' to do anything that you do not want to do!
Hypnosis is not ‘magic' it is science and it has real science behind it. Everyday we are discovering more and more about what it can do to transform lives.
