DOES IT REALLY WORK?
The bottom line is YES. Every week people quit smoking (some with heavy habits of 3 packs per day for decades), lose weight, improve their sports game, self confidence, sleep habits, self esteem, & much, much, more through hypnosis.
You may even know some people who have used hypnosis in their personal lives.
HOW WELL DOES HYPNOSIS WORK?
Hereâ€™s a Recent Comparison Study:
o Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
o Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
o Hypnotherapy 93% recovery after 6 sessions

As this study clearly shows, Hypnosis is more effective and requires less time to achieve its goal than traditional behavior therapy or psychoanalysis.
In a hypnotic state, you are more receptive to new ideas and you can more effectively process the emotions linked to the experiences which created the pain, the fear, the sadness, the anger, the guilt, the shame, the humiliation and the low self-esteem in the first place. Thus enabling you to regain control of your life.
- What if I
can't be hypnotized?
EVERYONE with normal brain functioning can be hypnotized. It's not like
what you see in the movies. It's just about being very deeply relaxed in
both mind and body. When you are in that altered state, things you learn
or meditate on stick better.
- What is
A state of relaxation and/or a level of concentration that the average
individual reaches daily. Self- hypnosis is accomplished most often when
one is "absorbed" in a TV program, experiencing repetition
(highway driving), or daydreaming. However, "Hypnotherapy" is
guided relaxation and/or concentration where the ideas expressed
(suggestions) by the therapist are generally remembered more readily,
which in turn creates anew awareness. Depending on your motivations, there
may be a shift in attitude about specific subject matters (habits and
stresses). The only requirement for getting therapeutic results is that
the you have a conscious desire to change, or in other words, are in
agreement with the suggestions.
- Do people
do things under hypnosis that are against their morals, or values?
No. Hypnosis cannot detach the ego. As a general rule, if you were given a
suggestion you did not agree with, you would simply refuse, laugh at it,
or awaken (regain normal awareness). In stage hypnosis, the volunteers are
usually under the influence of alcohol and have come to the show for the
purpose of relaxing, acting silly and having a good time, therefore, they
are easily encouraged to do so. Because inhibitions are often reduced
under hypnosis, the subject is more likely to experience their inner
character traits and motivations.
- Can a
person's memory be erased?
No. If one undergoing hypnosis wants to remember, he/she will. In some
cases, amnesia can he produced with a post-hypnotic suggestion, but it
wears off as quickly as the subject wishes. However, a certified hypnotherapist
can help a person transform a memory that may be causing problems. The
mind contains unconscious memories that generally are responsible for our
decisions, attitudes, feelings, and behaviors.
- Do people
under hypnosis go to sleep or become unconscious?
No. One should not expect to go to sleep! Hypnosis is a hyper-state of
awareness that feels very relaxing. One is completely aware of everything
that is occurring in the surrounding environment as well as that which is
happening in the inner mind. Many authors in the field feel that hypnosis
is a state of consciousness somewhere between being awake and asleep. Some
people may go out of hypnosis by falling into natural sleep, but then they
may need to be awakened.
- What can
be treated with hypnotherapy?
Act Now therapists have the capability to help alleviate or transform a
multitude of symptoms and problems. They have helped people eliminate
phobias, pain and fear, helped individuals eliminate drugs and alcohol
from their lives, helped people quit smoking, lose weight and a achieve a
number of other goals. Basically, if the problem is in the subconscious
mind -- whether bad habits or bad ideas -- hypnotherapy will help.
