That is just one little reason why I love to educate people. A person does NOT go ‘under’. In hypnosis, you are guided into a natural altered state, or you guide yourself into self-hypnosis. Your hypnotist creates a comfortable, trustful environment in which hypnosis can occur.
Going ‘under’ is what happens when you receive anesthesia during surgery. There is a huge difference between the two! In surgery, you are under the control of your anesthesiologist or other medical staff.
