What does hypnosis feel like?

You will feel a profound sense of relaxation and comfort. It is an extremely peaceful feeling. (Alpha)

Most people experience different bodily sensations ranging from limbs feeling very heavy, tingling sensations or a feeling of floating. Some even deny they were hypnotized because it feels so comfortable and “normal”.

Please note that hypnosis is NOT the same as being sound asleep.

Did you know that you can be in the Alpha during waking moments? Have you ever driven somewhere, but not actually remember the driving part? You were probably focused and alert, but thinking deeply about something else. You could have been  reviewing a recent conversation or even planning a dinner menu. You were in a light Alpha. It’s a natural state and very comfortable!

Not all will go into the Alpha in exactly the same way. Just like relaxing is different for us each. Some are relaxed by keeping their minds busy (crossword puzzles  and video games), while others are comfortable through music or the simplicity of being quiet. A hypnotist can guide you into the Alpha in a way that works best for you.

  1. Thank you for your explanation, it was quite thorough. I always find this feeling so hard to put into words but you’ve really bottled it very well.
