5 Fascinating Facts About Hypnosis

𝟏 Hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness. We all experience hypnosis multiple times a day whether we realize it or not.

2 Hypnosis is the state between ‘awake’ and ‘asleep’. We all pass through hypnosis while falling asleep and then pass through it again upon awakening. There are different levels and depth of hypnosis but the state itself is simply one of lower conscious mind activity and higher subconscious mind activity.

3 Hypnosis can be used as an anesthesia. In fact, hypnotic anesthesia has been around longer than any modern chemical anesthesia. During times of war, it was used to replace anesthetics when supplies were low.

4 Hypnosis has nothing to do with magic, intelligence or religion. Hypnosis is science – and therefore works regardless of one’s belief system. Everyone can be hypnotized.

5 Hypnosis happens in the nervous system; not in the mind. And the most profound state of hypnosis is produced when both parts of the autonomic nervous system become symbiotic (bringing balance instead of resistance)

I had my first session with Jackie and she was kind and patient with all my before questions. During the session I felt as if I was sleeping but I could still clearly hear her voice. She made me feel at ease through the entire process. Later that night while at work I didn’t feel the usual stress that my job normally gives me. I look forward to continuing our sessions so that I become a better me.

I was excited to learn about Jackie’s hypnosis training and was lucky to have a session with her before 10 days of travel that might be proving challenging. Jackie did a wonderful job setting my environment for success as well as delivering the messages with calm, even tone. I fell into complete relaxation, as Jackie noticed with my breathing patterns. She taught me about different types of hypnotic states and the ability to learn to go deeper into hypnosis with practice. Since I personally find it difficult to relax, I wasnt sure what the outcome of the session would be, but was pleasantly surprised! I am excited to have future sessions with Jackie!
