OK, so if when you think “hypnosis” you picture a mustachioed man swinging a pendulum back and in front of your face, think again.
Clinical hypnosis is a powerful tool used by licensed and trained doctors or masters prepared individuals. It’s used to help with psychological issues — like a fear or heights — or physical problems, like insomnia.
And don’t worry, when you get hypnotized you’re still totally in control; hypnosis is simply a state of deep concentration and attention. While in this state, the subconscious mind can powerfully focus on the problem or issue at hand and work through it in a way that they likely couldn’t while working in their conscious mind.
