What is Hypnosis Used For?
Hypnosis can be divided into two main categories: stage and clinical hypnosis.
Stage hypnosis is what most people think of when they think of hypnosis. This form of hypnosis provides entertainment for a crowd of people by creating an interactive performance experience in which volunteers from the crowd come up on stage and are hypnotized and led through a series of skits and scenarios. Our hypnotists tailor the content of each show to the audience and venue, so it’s guaranteed to get you laughing and keep the fun going all performance long.
Clinical hypnosis is the lesser known side of hypnosis, and it provides the benefits of our first two “H” hypnosis benefits: healthy and healing. Performed in a calm, private setting, clinical hypnosis can aid in:
- Athletic performance
- Smoking cessation
- Weight management
- Post-traumatic stress
- Anger management
- Age regression
- Past life regression
- Stress management
- Test Anxiety
- Self confidence
- Mind/Body Healing
- And much more
We have trained with some of the most renowned hypnotists in the country to bring the highest quality clinical hypnosis to Iowans.
How Does It Work /What To Expect
A person enters hypnosis through an induction or guided relaxation, usually by a hypnotist. Hypnosis works by bypassing the critical conscious mind (usually through relaxation or linguistic techniques) and speaking directly to the unconscious in a language which it understands – pattern, association, and metaphor. During hypnosis a person is able to block out daily distractions and experience a heightened sense of focus and concentration needed to work through issues, visualize events or change how they react to certain situations. The hypnotist will likely give a post-hypnotic suggestion which occurs after the person awakes from hypnosis. The suggestion evokes a response or action based on a cue or trigger given during the hypnosis session. For example, whenever you see the color red you will feel confident.
Common Hypnosis Myths
Will I get stuck in hypnosis? People cannot get stuck in hypnosis. If you were to be hypnotized and the hypnotist left you would naturally awaken from hypnosis much like you wake up in the morning.
Will I do things against my beliefs or values? A hypnotized person will not do anything against their moral or ethical values. The person is always in control of their actions. Hypnosis may help remove some inhibitions but the conscious mind is always present and protecting you.
Will I tell secrets? A hypnotized person will not unwillingly or unknowingly tell secrets. If you wouldn’t normally tell someone your computer password you are not going to tell them under hypnosis.
