21 May hypnosis f.a.q.
Hypnosis - coming from the Greek word 'Hypnos' (meaning sleep) was so-called because while in the state of Hypnosis, a person is very, very relaxed. While a person is in this more relaxed state, they find it easier to accept beneficial suggestions (e.g. "you are now a nonsmoker") and their memory is enhanced. There is absolutely no question of being controlled or manipulated, or even induced into a deep trance state.
