Since the subconscious mind is our driving force, we always do what our subconscious believes. We can reprogram old information into the subconscious by substituting new constructive suggestions for existing negative ones, and then with reinforcement, new habits and thinking patterns are established. This is why clients often state that their new changes and responses seem “easy and effortless” since using hypnosis.
While using hypnosis the brain releases a chemical called Endorphin from the Hippocampus of the Brain, which are equalivent to 200mg. of morphine, as well as numerous other neurochemicals that allow your body to alleviate pain and increase mood.
While experiencing hypnosis your body will feel more peaceful and relaxed than it has ever felt before. Because of this deeply relaxed state, oxygenation is increased to all the muscles of the body allowing them to relax and release long held tension.
Generally speaking, nine out of ten people can be hypnotized. Since hypnosis can be an accumulative state in some clients, with more practice your results will only improve.
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring phenomenon, we actually go in and out of hypnosis constantly while watching an interesting program on television, reading a book, driving a car or even daydreaming.
People respond to hypnosis in different ways. Some describe their experience as an altered state of consciousness; others describe hypnosis as a normal state of focused attention, in which they feel very calm and relaxed. Once a state of hypnosis is achieved, a therapist will offer suggestions specifically geared to your goals. For example, it is possible to suggest to a person with Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction, that they relax the jaw muscles and then direction is given for the proper position of the jaw to stop the clinching and grinding process.( A person coming in for medical hypnotherapy must be under the direction of a medical provider) While a person whom wishes to achieve weight loss, might receive a suggestion to each balanced meals with no desire to snack and make healthy food choices. Your unconscious mind can then transmit these thoughts and images throughout your mind and body, setting the healing process in motion. A recording of the session will be made to reinforce the suggestions given to you and allow for practice sessions at home.
Over the years, there have been many misconceptions about hypnotherapy. Parlor tricks and stage shows aside, clinical hypnotherapist will not make you quack like a duck or sing like Barbara Streisand. A person using hypnosis is always in control, just as someone who is daydreaming can decide to go on or stop the process at any time. While a hypnotherapist serves as a teacher or a guide, the only person who can hypnotize you is YOU. Therefore, all hypnosis is truly self-hypnosis.
A typical course of hypnotherapy may require anywhere from one to six sessions depending on your on your hypnotizability and response to treatment. As well as your commitment to practice the process at home.

LDS Church Stance on Hypnotherapy
LDS Church Spokeswoman Kim Farah provided an official statement on the Church’s position on hypnosis in the Daily Universe BYU newspaper on November 3, 2004.
“Members of the church should not participate in hypnosis demonstrations for entertainment,” Farah said. “The use of hypnosis under competent, professional, medical supervision for the treatment of disease or mental disorder is a medical question to be determined by a competent medical authority.”
While the LDS Church is clear on it’s stance toward hypnosis demonstrations, the medical use of hypnosis is left to be decided by church members and medical experts.
Aaron Aldridge, a local hypnotherapist in Orem, further explains that when people are hypnotized, they will not do anything they normally would not do and cannot be forced to do anything against their will.
While in hypnosis, a hypnotist will suggest certain emotions, feelings or mindsets contrary to the old ,negative thoughts and conditions currently held by the client. The client always retains consent to accept the new suggestions or not. All hypnosis is truly self-hypnosis.
