What is Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a mild meditative state where we bypass the conscious mind and talk to the subconscious mind which is where we store all our past experiences from birth upwards.
Is Hypnosis the same as we see on TV?
No. TV hypnotism is something we call mentalism and the contestants are quite often competing for a prize. In Hypnosis we cannot make you say or do something that you don't want to do. You can come out of hypnosis at any time, you are always in control .
