What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness achieved through the use of relaxation, concentration, expectation, and suggestion. During hypnosis, one has heightened sensory perception. All forms of daydreaming are levels of hypnosis. Some examples of day to day hypnosis are Highway Hypnosis ~ Reading a Book ~ Watching Television ~ Working on the computer for an extended period of time ~ Performing any enjoyable task where time appears to pass quickly.

Anyone with an open mind, moderate intelligence and is able to concentrate can be hypnotized. The more willing a person is to be hypnotized, their concentration is expanded and the commitment to obtain their desired goal increases the power of the suggestions.
