Hi, I'm Debbie Catz. I'm a certified clinical hypnotherapist here in the San Francisco Bay area. I have a masters degree in social work. To learn more about this you can visit my website at And now I'm going to help you understand the simplicity of hypnosis. All hypnosis is self hypnosis and belongs to most people. We all in hypnosis every day of our lives at least twice a day. So even we know hypno therapist use the term I am going to put you in hypnosis. Even though we know we can't do that and she want to go because all hypnosis is self hypnosis. From the demnestify hypnosis for you and show you who you are in hypnosis every day of your life. This is a picture of a brain waves, we can see through miracle technology,we can see our brain waves and if you little look it inside the brain like right now show watching in this video for usually in better state. the brain waves is pretty quick, as you can see. Now in house sit down and listen to quite music, we go in to the ALPHA state,you can see the brain waves beginning to slow down, them we curl in to the bed at night and we begin to drift after sleep, if you ever almost feel in sleep and you feel self falling and jerk and you wake up after pack up that is the state of THETA state which is hypnosis. So every night on the way to sleep we are going through hypnosis which is THETA state and almost the sleep in and drift off in to hypnosis that is DELTA state. Then in the morning if you are lucky enough to with if you don't wake up with an alarm clock as you come back you probably if you think about the aware to starting to come back in not only come back yet, come back yup and back to hypnosis again later come back to wake up state. So you can see naturally in hypnosis at least twice a day. If a cure naturally every night,it also cure in day dreaming. Most of us day dream. Day dream is the state of hypnosis, if you probably experienced the driving, if you ever driven on a long boring road if my be old area and you drive in your driving you get your destination and you look in your clock and you say 'had I get so quickly!' were you driving in conscious mind , you were driving in hypnosis you are in a sleep of hypnosis and driving in it. So we experience in time distortion when we are in hypnosis state, so you can see all hypnosis are self hypnosis. pretty cool to know that ha!
