What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness where the subconscious level of the mind is in a  state of hyper-suggestibility. A person enters hypnosis through an induction or guided relaxation,  usually by a hypnotist. Hypnosis works by bypassing the critical conscious mind and speaking  directly to the unconscious in a language which it understands such as pattern, association, and  metaphor. 

A state of hypnosis is only achieved with the “permission” of the conscious mind. Though the  unconscious mind is being accessed through hypnosis, and governing what the hypnotized  person does and experiences, the conscious mind is always present and able to step in to prevent  the person from doing something that they might otherwise regret. Inhibitions may be lessened  when in hypnosis, but a hypnotized person will never violate their morals or beliefs, or divulge  personal information or secrets that that they would not share in a normal state of mind. The  conscious mind protects our minds and bodies at all times while we are in hypnosis. 

H3 Hypnosis offers two kinds of hypnosis: stage and clinical hypnosis. Check out our pages on  both to learn more about what they are and how we use them. 

We have trained with some of the most renowned hypnotists in the country to bring the highest  quality clinical hypnosis to Iowans.

Hypnosis FAQ
  • What is hypnosis?
    Hypnosis is a powerful tool used in a clinical setting to coach, guide, instruct, and train individuals to achieve a healthier lifestyle through the use of self-hypnosis. It is an altered state of consciousness where the subconscious mind becomes highly receptive to suggestions.
  • How does hypnosis work?
    Hypnosis works by bypassing the critical conscious mind and directly communicating with the unconscious mind. This is done through inductions or guided relaxation techniques, usually facilitated by a trained hypnotist. The unconscious mind understands language in the form of patterns, associations, and metaphors, allowing positive suggestions and changes to be made at a deeper level.
  • What is the self-hypnotic state?
    The self-hypnotic state is a state of relaxed concentration that anyone can naturally enter. During a hypnosis session, the hypnotist guides the client into this state through the use of an induction, often progressive relaxation. The guidance of the hypnotist helps the client enter the self-hypnotic state more easily and effectively.
  • What happens during a hypnosis session?
    While in the self-hypnotic state, the hypnotist suggests ways for the client to achieve their goals for the session. This can involve real-time processing of feelings and events as well as post-hypnotic suggestions that continue to work after the session. The hypnotist's guidance and expertise ensure a productive and beneficial experience.
  • Is hypnosis a form of mind control?
    No, hypnosis is not a form of mind control. A state of hypnosis can only be achieved with the permission of the conscious mind. Although the unconscious mind is accessed during hypnosis, the conscious mind remains present and can intervene to prevent any actions that go against a person's morals or beliefs. Hypnosis respects personal boundaries and ensures the conscious mind's protection at all times.
  • Can hypnosis make me do things against my will?
    No, hypnosis cannot make you do anything against your will. In hypnosis, inhibitions may be lessened, but you will never violate your morals or beliefs. The conscious mind acts as a protective barrier and will prevent you from doing something you might regret. Hypnosis is a collaborative process where you are always in control.
