From my perspective,  all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. I am the tour guide and you are the one on the tour. I always recommend using self-hypnosis with Written Suggestions or Power Minutes at least five times a day, every day. I consider self-hypnosis to be Course Corrections. says that: “Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus, concentration and inner absorption. With hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and you can concentrate intensely on a specific thought, memory, feeling or sensation while blocking out distractions.

With hypnosis, you’re more open than usual to suggestions, and this can be used to modify your perceptions, behavior, sensations and emotions. Therapeutic hypnosis is used to improve your health and well-being and is different from so-called stage hypnosis used by entertainers. Although you’re more open to suggestion during therapeutic hypnosis, your free will remains intact and you don’t lose control over your behavior.

Hypnosis is intended to help you gain more control over undesired behaviors or emotions or to help you cope better with a wide range of medical conditions. Hypnosis isn’t considered a treatment or a type of psychotherapy. Rather, it’s a procedure typically used along with certain treatments and therapies to help a wide variety of conditions.”

Hypnosis has proven applications in medicine, dentistry, psychology, obstetrics, counseling, law enforcement, habit management, pain control and in virtually every area of education. Major hospitals are now including hypnotherapists on their staffs.

In the September 27, 2006 issue of Newsweek magazine, Dr. David Spiegel of Stanford University School of Medicine, wrote: “One of the interesting ironies about hypnosis is that old fantasy that it takes away control. It’s actually a way of enhancing people’s control, of teaching them how to control aspects of their body’s function and sensation that they thought they couldn’t.”

There are unlimited applications for hypnosis in self-improvement for both personal and business use. Ellen DeGeneres spoke on her talk show in 2006 about overcoming a long-standing cigarette addiction with hypnosis and in the December 31, 2006 Parade magazine, she said that hypnosis worked and she will continue using it. Professional, Olympic and collegiate athletes use hypnosis to enhance concentration and performance. More and more sports teams employ their own hypnotists and even provide training to their players in self-hypnosis techniques. Jan, a tri-athlete, successfully used hypnosis for style correction, speed and strength. She reported back to me that she exceeded her time goals.

The use of hypnosis in sports has been around for hundreds of years. In the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, the Russian Olympic team took no less than 11 hypnotists to develop mental clarity and help the athletes with visualization. In hypnosis it is possible to communicate with the unconscious mind in order to promote healing or even speed up a slow metabolism. You can use hypnosis to create new conditioned responses as well as to change your perceptions of things like food and exercise. Repeated reinforcement makes it last.

Never in recorded history has there ever been any danger linked to hypnosis. Hypnosis is fun, feels good, and is relaxing and beneficial.
