Hypnosis FAQ

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that everyone experiences whether they are aware of it or not.  The most noticeable times that hypnosis occurs is  just before you fall asleep at night and just before you wake up in the morning.  Hypnosis is characterized by certain types of brain wave patterns.  The Beta brain wave pattern occurs during the normal waking, conscious state.  Alpha brain waves take place when a person is very relaxed and/or under light hypnosis.  Theta brain waves can be seen in deeper states of hypnosis and normal non-dreaming sleep.  Most people go in and out of hypnosis many times during the day. 

Is Hypnosis dangerous?

Not at all.  People under hypnosis are fully aware of their surroundings ,they are just so relaxed that they don't usually care to move about too much.  No one has every been "stuck" in hypnosis. If something happened to the hypnotist or if the hypnotist left the room, the hypnotized person would wake up in about five to ten minutes on their own. 

Can the hypnotist make people do things against their will?

No, people will not do anything under hypnosis that they would not do in a normal waking state.  All their ethics and morals remain intact. They will not reveal their deepest held secrets, unless they would divulge those secrets while not hypnotized.  All hypnosis is really self-hypnosis, the hypnotist  guides the person into the relaxed mental state known as hypnosis.
