How to Pick Relaxing Music for Hypnosis

Learn how to pick relaxing music for hypnosis from clinical hypnotherapist Debbie Catz in this Howcast video.


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. The best music to use for hypnosis, for self-hypnosis is that which helps you to let go and get very, very relaxed. And it's different for everybody. I've had people that like rap music and they actually get relaxed to rap. So, it's different for everybody and one way that you can determine what is best, the best music for you to use for hypnosis is to sit down and assess your stress. How stressed or how unrelaxed am I right now? And give it a number, you know, maybe it's a seven right now. Then, listen to some different kinds of music and see what brings you down to a lower number where you would relieve your stress. So, that would be one way. There's all kinds of meditation CDs available on the internet and also in stores. So, it's a really good idea just to go and take a listen and take some time and just listen to all the different CDs and see what helps you to get into that state where you start to feel yourself letting go and just relaxing. And so, it might be something you listen to before you go to bed at night and you listen to it for a number of weeks or months and now, you put it on and your subconscious mind has associated it with going to sleep. So, believe it or not, people will relax to all kinds of things and even to noise outside and repetitive noises. So, there's a number of different ways to relax and, of course, music is just one. And music is a very personal thing so, choose the one that's right for you and let it help you to relax and get into hypnosis.
