What is Hypnosis: Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness where the subconscious level of the mind is in a state of hyper-suggestibility and deep relaxation. While in this state, a patient becomes highly responsive to suggestions. A patient does not lose consciousness during hypnosis, and is always able to make decisions. The reason for hypnosis is to open the subconscious mind to suggestions that will assist the patient with their specific issue. Hypnosis is NOT sleep, loss of self-control, being controlled or being unconscious.
