What my Hypnotherapy clients say Hypnosis feels like

Have you ever wondered what hypnosis feels like? Perhaps you’ve heard of hypnosis before, but have never actually experienced it yourself. Many people have a common misconception that hypnosis is a form of sleep, but in reality, it is far from it. Hypnosis is a state of heightened focus and attention, and it’s often described as being in a theta brainwave state, similar to when you first wake up or just before you fall asleep.

During hypnosis, you may experience a variety of sensations. Some people feel heavy, as if they are sinking deeper into the surface they are sitting or lying on. Others feel light, almost as if they are floating outside of their own body. Some clients report feeling numbness in their arms and legs, while others may experience a change in temperature, feeling either hot or cold. It’s not uncommon to experience time distortion during hypnosis as well, with many people feeling as though the session was much shorter than it really was.

The experience of hypnosis can also be visually stimulating. Some clients report seeing colors and shapes, while others describe feeling as if they are inside a lava lamp, with many lights and darkness swirling around them. In fact, some clients have even asked their hypnotherapists whether they were shining a bright light in their eyes during their session.

Although hypnosis is a very relaxed state, relaxation is not always necessary to enter hypnosis. However, many hypnotherapists do use relaxation techniques to create the hypnotic state, with progressive relaxation being one of the most popular methods. Clients often report feeling a clear mind after hypnosis, with racing thoughts disappearing and an overall feeling of relaxation and energy.

For some, the changes from hypnosis can be immediate, particularly if anxiety was the reason for seeking hypnotherapy. If the hypnotherapist is able to tackle overthinking and differentiate which thoughts to pay attention to, clients may experience a shift in their thought processing almost immediately. Others may experience more gradual changes in their lives, as if a ripple effect has been set in motion. Some clients may have a mind shift and feel different about specific things that previously caused them stress.

In conclusion, hypnosis is a fascinating state that can have a range of effects on the individual experiencing it. From feelings of weightlessness to changes in thought processing, hypnosis has the potential to help individuals address a variety of issues and create positive change in their lives. So, if you’re curious about what hypnosis feels like, consider giving it a try – you might be surprised at what you discover!
