Is hypnosis effective?
Hypnosis is a state of concentration achieved when the brain suppresses beta wave activity (normal alertness) in favor of increased theta wave activity (the dream state). Wh…ile in this state, many people find themselves becoming more suggestible, as many of the unconscious filters that monitor dislikes and inhibitions are likewise suppressed. Because of this, clinical hypnosis can be used to treat some psychological disorders such as smoking, overeating and mild depression. Deep meditation, daydreaming, and lucid dreaming (the act of taking control of one's dreams, without waking up) are naturally-occurring examples of hypnosis. Hypnosis refers to the induction of a state of consciousness that results in loss voluntary action making one responsive to suggestion or direction.

Hypnosis has long been a mystery. The effects of hypnosis have been proven to help several patients in varying different areas. But what has yet to be explained by science is …exactly how hypnosis works. The perception that most people have of hypnosis involves a magician with a shiny object. This magician waves this object in front of a crowd member to put them in a trance. After a few snaps of his fingers and a few soft words, the crowd member is soon barking like a dog or clucking like a chicken.
Hypnosis really only works for people who are very imaginative and have a rich fantasy life, so hypnosis can't affect people who are completely against that sort of thing. M…any people believe that hypnosis is good for recalling forgotten events but the truth is that usually it doesn't work for that purpose and responses to memory recall are only due to leading questions the hypnotist asks. For example: If a hypnotist asks if a person was beaten as a child, the person under hypnosis may believe that they were because it was asked of them like as if it had happened. They tell themselves that that was what they wanted to remember and they alter their actual memories to support the claim. This is why hypnosis is no longer really trusted for criminal cases and important memory recall.

The effectiveness depends on your actual will, how bad you want to end your phobia, and how effective your hypnotherapist is. You can even try to cure your phobia by hypno…tizing yourself.

Franz Mesmer started the idea that there is a state similar to sleep that people can experience in more controlled settings. Mesmerism was named after him, and psychologists l…ike James Braid and Freud expanded on his ideas with some more closer to legitimate scientific evidence to develop his ideas into hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is medical in nature, stage hypnosis, however, is a performing art.
Hypnosis basically involves the same things as meditation. They both focus on relaxation more than anything else. It also involves complete control over your own thoughts. If …somebody says "don't think about elephants," in a hypnotic state where you are in complete control over what you're thinking about, you should be able to actually not think about elephants. So it really mostly involves relaxation, and control (in meditation the control is in the hands of the meditator, and in hypnosis, the control is in the hands of the hypnotist).
Some things that hypnosis can do are, well basically anything. But one thing that it can not do is make the person who is hypnotized do anything against their will. Meaning th…at if you want them to be a slave forever, they will not do it, unless they want to. Also, you must note that when you hypnotize someone, they will not have super human abilities. For example, the hypnotized victim can not lift a bed with one finger. So a hypnotized person can put away your clothes, or you can make them think they are a cat, but you can't make them be a slave and make them do something against their will.
