hypnotism in DallasHere are a few of the most common myths about Dallas hypnosis:

  1. Hypnotism is Mind Control. This is probably one of the most popular myths about hypnosis therapy, reinforced by dozens of movie villains throughout the years. It also couldn’t be further from the truth. Many people think of hypnosis therapy as a surrender of their will power, and that hypnosis will leave them vulnerable to external influence or mind control. In reality, hypnosis is a cooperative undertaking. It requires full compliance from the patient, and is always conducted in a controlled environment. Also, there’s no such thing as mind control.
  2. Hypnosis Therapy Won’t Work On Me. Most people are skeptical that hypnosis therapy works at all, but they are especially convinced that they will be immune to its effects. Actually, hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that every individual experiences at least twice a day. The state of consciousness directly preceding sleep is comparable to clinical hypnosis therapy. Therefore, everyone is capable of being hypnotized. If you think about it, even worry is a form of hypnosis – a negative form, but still. *you have one example, is there another we should mention?  Worry is a natural but negative form of hypnosis.
  3. Hypnotists Are Frauds. Hypnosis therapy, like any clinical discipline, has strict regulations. It’s a practice based on research, with fundamental foundations in science. Certification is based on rigorous credentials. Not anyone off the street can conduct hypnosis therapy.
