Questions about hypnotherapy answered


Can you get "stuck" in hypnosis?

During hypnosis, you enter a trace, which is simply a relaxed state of focused concentration. In fact, you enter natural trance states every day before falling asleep and before waking from sleep among other times you may not even notice. You can't get "stuck" during your hypnosis session any more than you can during any other trance state you naturally go into.
