What is Hypnosis? And what is the difference between Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?


Hypnosis is a natural state of very focused awareness where the body is usually quite relaxed, and the mind is open to suggestions. It is a trance state, and believe it or not, we go in and out of this state on a daily basis. The two most common times we do this are upon awakening and right before drifting off to sleep, but there are other times as well. Some of these include becoming so absorbed in a movie or book that emotions arise or even driving your usual route to work or home and not recalling the actual drive itself. In a trance state, time is lost. 


The word hypnosis refers to the inducing of a passive state of mind, or trance, that promotes better communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy is the psychological healing process that uses hypnosis to achieve a desired result.
