I don't want to say to much out of fear of an argument.
I personaly place hypnosis at about the same level as shock therapy.
I have been hypnotized before and it was exactly what I expected.
Your mind opens up completly to suggestion. You give semi control of your mind to someone else.
Not all suggestions are good mind you.
For instanse, You can take in my suggestion to not get hypnotized or you can just say I am dumb and get hypnotized anyway. It is your choice to determine if my suggestion is good or not.
When you are hypnotized you lose your choice in the matter.
If I tell you to do something wile hypnotized you will most likely do what I command.
I get this from experience, not from hearsay.
I am just personaly very against hypnosis. I don't understand how intelligent doctors can even recomend it.
hopenfaith let us know how it goes.
