Hypnosis is generally regarded as an altered state of consciousness, a broad category that includes meditative states, the “flow” state, psychedelic drug-induced states, and psychosis. But since consciousness isn’t understood, alterations to it aren’t very well understood either.

More specifically, hypnosis is a state of extreme “suggestibility,” a phenomenon that includes the placebo effect, advertising, and religious cults, but may also include any context-specific behaviour. If a stranger at a train station asks you to take off your clothes, you would call the police. But if a stranger wearing a white coat at a hospital makes the same request, you would comply naturally.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a form of guided imagery and suggestion to help you relax, getting around the conscious minds' defence. The mind is much more likely to accept change when as a rest state.


In the fully engaged and focused state, the brain will show a Beta wave pattern which is from 15 to 40 cycles per second. In a restful state, the brain will show an Alpha wave pattern which is from 9 to 14 cycles per second.​

In a deeper state of hypnosis, similar to dreaming and some meditative states, the brain shows a Theta wave pattern which is from 4 to 8 cycles per second.

And in the deepest state of hypnosis, the brain shows a Delta wave pattern which is from 1 to 4 cycles per second and it is associated with deep dreamless sleep. The deeper the sleep, the higher the amount of delta waves.
