At Transcendental Healing Solutions in Nesconset, New York, I offer a wide range of hypnosis techniques designed to help each individual client achieve his or her goals. Each hypnosis session is approximately one hour in duration and typically consists of 1-4 sessions or more, depending on the complexity of the circumstances or the individual’s success in obtaining long-term benefits.
What Is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of focused attention, heightened awareness, reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity for response to helpful, positive and constructive suggestions. The person can concentrate intensely on a specific thought or memory while blocking out sources of distraction. Hypnosis is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction involving a series of scripted instructions and suggestions.
Benefits Of Hypnosis Can Include But Are Not Limited To The Following:
Eliminating Fears and Phobias
Can Everyone Be Hypnotized? Almost everyone has the ability to be hypnotized. Did you ever become so absorbed in a TV show that you were not focused on your surroundings or drive a car and cannot remember how you got to your destination? These are examples of being in a light hypnotic trance, and most people can reach a medium or even deeper level under the right conditions. Anyone who has the ability to concentrate and understand simple instructions can be hypnotized, although the depth varies with the individual.
Can You Be Hypnotized Against Your Will? No, you need to be a willing participant to be hypnotized.
What Does It Feel Like To Be Hypnotized? You can expect to feel very relaxed. Some individuals feel sensations such as a heaviness or lightness in their arms or legs; others feel a floating sensation.
How Do You Become Hypnotized? There are a multitude of inductions used to guide a person into a trance state. The induction used is scripted for the specific goal of the individual. Some inductions are rapid and only take a few minutes while others take much longer. This involves counting, imagery and verbal suggestions.
Are You Asleep Or Unconscious While Under Hypnosis? While under a state of hypnosis you are neither asleep nor unconscious because you are aware of sounds, smells and other sensory stimuli. During this state you are able to think, talk and even move around if necessary.
Will You Submit To The “Power” Of The Hypnotist? No, hypnosis is not a form of mind control or brainwashing. The individual is always capable of making decisions at all times and will not be receptive to suggestions that contradict their own values.
Can You Be Made To Perform Embarrassing Acts Such As Acting Like An Ape Or Barking Like A Dog? This belief is based on Stage Hypnotism, and in truth these individuals who volunteer to act on stage in this manner participate in these humorous suggestions willingly. Most likely these people are natural comedians who enjoy entertaining and/or have this type of outward personality.
Will Secrets Be Divulged While Under Hypnosis? A person can freely lie and is more likely to be creative with the truth when in a hypnotic trance, as this enables them to have access into their subconscious where there are many other resources.
Can You Get Stuck In Hypnosis? It is not possible to get permanently stuck in a state of hypnosis. A person might remain in a hypnotic trance only by his or her own choice and it is usually due to feelings of relaxation and comfort. Most hypnotists end the session by having the individual come out of the trance. However if this were not the case, the individual, on their own, would either return to full alertness or fall asleep.
Can Only Gullible, Uneducated Or Less Intelligent People Be Hypnotized? Research shows that the opposite is true and that the best subjects are intelligent, imaginative and creative individuals.
Is Hypnosis Anti-religious? There are no religious connotations involved with hypnosis and in fact, it is reported that many individuals often report having had a spiritual experience while in a hypnotic trance.
Does Hypnosis Derive From “Black Magic” Or The “Supernatural”? Hypnosis is a natural state that has been studied scientifically. Hypnotists are not Psychics, nor do they have “special powers”. Hypnosis is based on many years of clinical research by Dr. Sigmund Freud, Dr. Carl Jung, Dr. Milton Erikson and Dr. John Kappas.
