What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of being very relaxed or in hypnotherapy we call this “trance.” This state is natural and most of you have experienced it before. Lighter forms of “trance” or relaxation include things like day dreaming, getting lost in a book or TV show. Deeper stages of “trance” include the phase right before you fall asleep, or coming out of a really good sound bath or shavasana when you just feel so relaxed. With hypnotherapy we combine this relaxed state with guided imagery or prompts to help you gain access to the answers you have inside of your own subconscious mind. Through this process you gain increased awareness and therefore more control because you access your subconscious, which drives 90% of brain function, vs. the conscious mind we tend to use more often.

What is the difference between Meditation and Hypnosis?

Meditation and Hypnosis often feel similar because they both have a relaxing or “trance” like effect. However, the main difference is that meditation strengthens someones conscious awareness of the present moment to help clear your mind. For example, you may be guided to point your attention towards your body and how it feels against the chair or your breath and any tension in your body. This usually is a routine practice and doesn’t have to be goal oriented.

Hypnosis on the other hand is goal oriented and uses the subconscious to change neural patterns in light of the goal. Rather than focusing only on the present moment, hypnosis is used to change the brain for a more ideal future. In the subconscious state our inspiration, creativity and true memory of our experiences are all heightened, so an individual can become less focused on the present moment. In this state, the hypnotherapist guides the individual with specific techniques, so they can gain the insights for themselves.

Similar to meditation, hypnotherapy does not always need to involve talking, so the individual can have a private experience of their own. Ultimately, an individual walks away with a heightened sense of self and awareness of their goal/situation they wanted to achieve. This leads to a feeling of getting unstuck and being unstoppable towards their goal.
