So, what exactly is hypnosis?

Many definitions abound, and it can be challenging to pin down one that covers all aspects of this versatile practice.

In this state, individuals can tap into their subconscious mind, essentially their direct connection to the Universe, and effect positive changes at a more profound level.

During hypnosis, a person enters a relaxed state where their conscious mind, the analytical part of the mind that often questions and criticizes, takes a backseat. As this happens, the subconscious mind becomes more receptive to suggestions and new ideas, providing the perfect opportunity for profound changes to take place.
