What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of mind best described as a focused concentration of attention. This focused use of our minds happens naturally, and on a somewhat regular basis in our daily lives. Hypnosis may be described as a deep daydream, sometimes a staring off into space, or other obvious sign that the person is involved more in an inner reality, than in what is going on around them. This focused concentration opens the mind to what are called suggestions, ideas that may be planted directly into the thinking of the individual at their request and with their permission. When the hypnotic state of mind is achieved in a planned, controlled manner, that have been determined the hypntherapist and the client it can be of great benefit to the client. Whatever ideas the client wishes to possess are the perfect suggestions to make during hypnosis. These ideas can pertain to any outcome the client desires and if it is really a personal intention, will set the person's mind in that direction.
