What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is not sleep.

Hypnosis is not about someone taking control of you.

You cannot be made to do or say anything you don't want to.

We all have achieved this hypnotic state in life more than we know it... Have you ever driven a regular route home and on occasion not remembered passing key places? You were not asleep you were just in a deeply relaxed state. Daydreaming or that moment just before you fall asleep are all examples of the Hypnotic state. This means you won't be experiencing a brand new state of mind.
