Hypnosis can be described as a state of focused attention and receptivity.
It has a long history and has been used in the healing arts for hundreds of years.
Although there is no universal explanation for HOW hypnosis works, there are a large number of scientific studies supporting the efficacy of hypnotic states when utilized in a therapeutic context.
So, in a sense, hypnosis is a type of MAGIC.
Hypnosis is also widely accepted as being an adaptation of a natural and normal state of consciousness that occurs spontaneously and is a very pleasant experience for most people.
Hypnotic trance can be used successfully in treating in a wide range of life challenges such as chronic pain, breaking habits (e.g. smoking), anxiety and many more.
