Hypnosis has always been surrounded by an abundance of myth and misconception. Hollywood has portrayed hypnotic trance as a zombie-like state where the subject has their mind controlled by an evil, watch swinging savant.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact is, hypnosis is a genuine psychological phenomenon that has a valid application for positive behavioral change. Simply put, hypnosis is a state of highly focused concentration, often associated with profound relaxation and heightened suggestibility.
