Hypnosis has been around for thousands of years. It was used in ancient Egyptian and Grecian healing centers. In modern times hypnosis has been used in surgery, dental procedures, and to help overcome fears, phobias and undesirable behaviors. In the thousands of years that hypnosis has been used there has never been a case of an individual being hurt or being unable to return to fully alert state. Individuals typically find hypnosis and an enjoyable, pleasant state of deep relaxation.

In this type of highly relaxed state, individuals can bypass the critical, conscious mind, to focus on the subconscious. This is a critical component of hypnosis because the subconscious is where values, beliefs, and habits are stored. People are often concerned that hypnosis is mind control. However, while in hypnosis, one is in full control of their body and especially their mind; one will only accept suggestions that are in alignment with their core beliefs. Your body's self-preservation mechanism initiated through the Automatic Nervous System, will immediately alert you should you feel that you are in any danger. However, when one is in a highly, relaxed, and concentrated state offered through hypnosis, one can effectively make lasting changes to reach their goals. In this way, hypnosis is used strictly for helping and healing!
