Q: Is hypnosis new?
A: Evidence of hypnosis has been found as far back as 3000B.C. in the Egyptian dream temples. Until chloroform was discovered, hypnosis was the only method for anesthesia.

It is becoming much more accepted and used by many, including Tiger Woods, Micheal Jordan, Martha Stewart, Bruce Willis, Britiey Spears, Dolly Parton, Princess Diana and even Albert Einstein.
Q: Can a person be hypnotized against their will?
A: You might have seen that in movies or on television, but the reality of hypnosis when it is used for therapeutic purposes is that you are always in control. So, No; the hypnotist must always have consent of the client. If you are seeking hypnosis as a way to improve your performance -and your life- your hypnosis session will no doubt be a lot less dramatic than anything Hollywood has ever concocted … but just as powerful!
Q: Can a person be made to perform any immoral or criminal act in hypnosis?
A: All researchers and studies agree that this is not possible. The person can not be made to do anything in hypnosis to which they do not agree and give consent. Contrary to popular belief, the hypnotist has no magical power and cannot control you or make you do things you don’t want to do. Hypnosis is a completely voluntary act wherein you always remain conscious; you’re always aware and able to hear, to talk, and to make decisions. At any time during the session you even have the ability to get up and leave if you desire. Once again the state of hypnosis is natural and everyone experiences it daily.
Q: Will I be asleep?
A: No. A relaxed state is the only similarity. A person in hypnosis is much more aware of all that is going on in a very focused way, though being relaxed. In fact, its quite the opposite, their senses are more acute due to this state of heightened focus and concentration.
Q: Is it possible to get stuck in hypnosis and not come out of it?
A: No. Inducing a self-hypnotic state is an active process requiring continued interaction. If the hypnotist left the room, the person would quickly come out on their own, being completely aware and in control.
Q: Will I tell all of my secrets in hypnosis?
A: No. You will not tell any secrets in hypnosis any more than you would out of hypnosis. Hollywood is responsible for making people believe that hypnosis is related to a truth serum. Hypnosis is in no way related to a truth serum. You are always aware of what you are saying. Hypnosis is not a long drawn out therapy where you need to discuss your personal life details. You can tell me what you think is important. Hypnosis is not about understanding WHY. Hypnosis is about understanding HOW to help you today. And, in fact it is possible to have profound positive change without ever revealing even your topic of concern, if you wish.
