Facts everybody needs to know about.. Hypnosis? What is hypnosis? There are as many definitions for hypnosis, as there are authors. The simplest and most popular are: Hypnosis is really a super concentration of the mind; it is an altered state of consciousness. Can everybody be hypnotized? Up until 1960s, it was believed that 20 percent of the people were poor subject. But, Milton Erickson proved that everybody is hypnotizable. If, a person is not hypnotized, it is the problem of the agent who cannot hypnotize the subject, and not the subject himself/herself. More intelligent the subject, more s/he will be hypnotizable. Is a deep hypnosis necessary for medical work? No, for medical work light hypnosis is quite sufficient if used properly. Is hypnosis dangerous? Absolutely not, hypnosis is very beneficial for psychological hygiene and a theory called "hypnosynthesis," indicates that a simple hypnotic relaxation without any therapeutic suggestion enables the subject to get rid of some psychological disorder, even psychosomatic pain. What is difference between clinical and stage hypnosis? Clinicians and doctors are against stage hypnosis that the people watch on television, movies and read in the fiction books. Stage hypnosis, is a role playing amusement and stage hypnotists have undermined the science and art of hypnosis.
