Dear clients of Knoxville Family Hypnosis:
Per the Knox Co. Health Department’s mandate, my office building at Executive Plaza will be locked and closed to the public until further notice. As my business is not considered essential, my office is closed and all of my sessions will be by video conferencing over the internet for the foreseeable future.
The safety and well-being of my clients is my primary concern during these unprecedented times. If you do not have to be out in public, please stay home.
Exercise sound judgment and be well.

Do Online Hypnosis Sessions work?
Just a note… I’m using Zoom for my online sessions because it is set up for businesses, is a little more robust, and has a level of security I’m comfortable with.
Now then… yes, you can be hypnotized online.
Online hypnosis works, and no, online hypnosis is not dangerous.
If the connection fails during the session, because technology being what it is, you would come out of hypnosis in a few minutes on your own anyway. The worst that could happen is you drift off to sleep and take a short nap.
However, what will actually happen is I’ll call you, you will come out of hypnosis, we will restart the session, and you will go right back into hypnosis.
A funny thing is, one of the techniques we use in hypnosis is called fractionation, where I put you into hypnosis, take you out, and then hypnotise you again. Each time we do this you do deeper into hypnosis.
So a lost connection will probably just wind up making your hypnosis deeper.
Another thing I have found is that some people actually do better with online hypnosis, because they get to stay home and set the session up in an area they are comfortable with. You are not coming to an office you are unfamiliar with, not dealing with the hassle of traffic on the drive over, etc.
So, what do you need to do?
You just need to find a place you can relax in, a place that is quiet and where you won’t be interrupted.
Other than that, you will need an internet connection and some kind of camera so I can monitor you during the hypnosis. A comfy chair, a smartphone or a tablet, a place to prop it up so the camera is on you, and maybe a pair of headphones of some sort will work just fine.
The technology issues aside, other than that everything else is just like what we would do if you came into my office.
I hope to see you soon!

Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behavior.
Hypnosis itself is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. I usually do hypnosis with the help of verbal repetition and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions.
Even in the lightest states of hypnosis, you may be anywhere from two hundred to a thousand times more open to suggestion than usual, providing these suggestions don’t go against any of your core beliefs.
Have you ever been driving along, and suddenly realized you don’t recall the last several minutes? But you were still in control. You were steering the car, giving it gas, and if someone pulled out in front of you, you would have hit the brakes. You were still in control, but were drifting along sort of on “autopilot”. It’s safe to think of hypnosis being like this. They even call this state “highway hypnosis”. In hypnosis, you are always in control.
Why it’s done
Hypnotherapy can be an effective method for coping with stress and anxiety. In particular, hypnosis can reduce stress and anxiety before a medical procedure, such as a breast biopsy.
Hypnosis has been studied for other conditions, including:
Pain control. Hypnosis may help with pain due to burns, cancer, childbirth, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, temporomandibular joint problems, dental procedures and headaches.
Hot flashes. Hypnosis may relieve symptoms of hot flashes associated with menopause.
Behavior change. Hypnosis has been used with success in the treatment of behavioral issues such as insomnia, bed-wetting, smoking, and overeating.
Cancer treatment side effects. Hypnosis has been used to ease side effects related to chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
Mental health conditions. Hypnosis may help treat symptoms of anxiety, phobias and post-traumatic stress.
