unresponsiveness, but a state of mind where our

directed toward a specific mental idea

suggestions

The purpose is to use a therapeutic
technique help a person gain control
over your behavior, emotions, and
physical well-being.

MYTH OR REALITY?
1. When you’re under hypnosis, the hypnotist controls you.
MYTH! You do hypnosis voluntarily. The hypnotist is there to
serve as a guide
2. Under hypnosis, you lose consciousness and have
amnesia.
MYTH! A small number of people actually go into a very
deep state. Most people remember what went on during
their experience
3. You are aware when being put under hypnosis.
REALITY! Successful hypnosis depends on your willingness
to experience it, even with voluntary participants. Not
everyone can be lead into hypnosis.
