Facts About Hypnosis Part 1


How does hypnosis work? Let’s learn more about the science behind trance and why it’s so effective at breaking life long negative habits and issues.

Did you know that hypnosis is just a form of focused relaxation that allows access to the unconscious mind?

Hypnosis guides your attention away from the everyday world so you can concentrate on a goal, such as overcoming fear or quitting smoking. What you experience when you’re hypnotised is called an alternate state of consciousness. So you’re awake but you’re not paying attention to the consciousness world in the same way. Instead, your thoughts are focused inward and you go into a mild trance.

The word “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word Hypnos, which means sleep. This is because it appeared that subjects who were hypnotised were asleep. However, when you practice hypnosis, you must be awake for it to be effective.

What is Trance?

A trance is the term for the state you enter when you undergo hypnosis. It might sound mysterious or like a frightening form of mind control, but it’s neither of those.

Trance is a natural state. You’ve most likely already experienced trance. It can occur when you’re doing something routine and your mind wanders, like staring out the window on a rainy day. In fact, whenever your mind drifts or waders, you’re experiencing a light trance. Some people call it daydreaming. When you’re hypnotised, this trance state if induced on purpose.

It’s simply another state of consciousness, somewhere between being awake and being asleep.

      Indeed. Changes found in three areas of the brain during hypnosis may suggest future alternative treatments for anxiety and pain management. Scientists scanned the brains of 57 people during a guided hypnosis session, similar to one that may be used to help treat anxiety, pain, or trauma.
