just wondering if anyone on the board has had any experiences regarding hypnosis that they want to share. I mean hypnosis in a clinical setting, not a party game here is what i know so far:
-drunk people cannot be hypnotized
-people cannot be hypnotized against their will, and will not do anything under hypnosis that they would not ordinarily do

It feels great! Hypnosis is a natural state that feels similar to that feeling you get right before you fall asleep at night.
When you awaken, you feel refreshed and revitalised.
You just feel as if you are relaxing in a very comfortable space with your eyes closed. You can hear everything--my voice, the sounds outside the building, a car going down the street outside, whatever.
Think about it - your unconscious mind uses the same set of ears that your conscious mind hears with! How effective would it be if, once you entered the trance state, you suddenly lost all ability to hear the hypnotherapists's words?
You're mindful the entire time, aware of everything going on around you as well as what your unconscious is revealing to you.
I liken it to watching TV in one room while a radio plays in another; you can shift your awareness back and forth between the
two, concentrating on one but still aware of the other.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a very normal and natural altered state of consciousness (an altered state of awareness), one we all experience from time to time in which the mind remains clear, alert and focused on something. Have you ever "become really absorbed" while watching TV? Or driven to work on "auto pilot?" That's the same kind of altered state as hypnosis.
Some misconceptions about hypnosis are that it's a frightening or eerie state, or that it feels very weird, but it's actually very normal and very pleasant.
Some people ask if they've really been hypnotised, just because it feels like such a normal state and they were expecting
something very strange. The zombie-type states you see depicted in movies and on TV are pure fantasy.

Suggestion Therapy
This clinical form of treatment is ideal for helping to cope with such things as self-development, particular fears, doubts, nerves, smoking, certain habits, some weight-control problems, stress, hypno-healing
(working with the body`s immune and healing systems) and so forth.

Analytical Therapy
This is used for the more fundamental or deep-seated problems or issues. This approach aims to find and eliminate the underlying rudimentary cause of such things as irrational fears, emotional problems, relationship difficulties, psychosexual problems, lack of confidence, personality problems, sleeping difficulties, stuttering/stammering, anxiety, inferiority complex, unhappiness, phobias, etc. and most other problems and issues where there is a psychological factor at work.

I currently have an anatomy instructor who is a medical doctor who also specialized in stress management and hypnosis.

He says the latest rage is women using it to give birth without medications.

From what he has demonstrated, I believe it would be analogous to having a dream you wish to show you all the answers you need.

It's not a freaky thing, like those stupid human tricks of people clucking like a chicken. It's a very private consultation with an emphasis on your comfort and ease.
