This answer is really quite simple…… YES it is ! Hypnosis is a altered brain wave state in which we go thru each time we wake up and fall asleep. There are many myths to Hypnosis which can make it seem quite scary to people. Scary Myths scare us all. Remember the Boogie Man. Hypnotic state varies with each individual and depending on how deep THEY LET THEMSELVES GO. Yes how deep they let themselves go is a major factor in Hypnosis. The biggest thing in a Hypnosis show is trusting the hypnotist. I always respect each and every volunteer and never will let them spew out personal information or go past a certain point on stage. I do this for a living and plan on hypnotizing the same people each and every time I return to perform. Many of my volunteers return to my shows to get re-ypnotized because they had so much fun at the last show. If you come to one of my shows be aware that you will become the star of the show IF YOU WANT TO! I look forward to expanding the world of Hypnosis with each of you.
