What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of mind in which a person remains calm, concentrated and aware, whilst their body becomes completely relaxed. This altered state of awareness allows access to the subconscious mind, having relaxed the thought processes of the conscious mind.
The subject is not asleep or unconscious, and is aware of what is being said to them and any noises in their environment, as their normal physical abilities are not impaired. It’s similar to being engrossed in a television programme, whilst hearing a conversation in the background. Basically, all else just fades into unimportance
