San Francisco Hypnotherapy
Ken Steinmetz, CCHT
What should I expect?
Many patients have questions prior to trying hypnotherapy. Get the facts here.
“What is hypnosis?”
It is not sleep, but a natural, normal, and relaxed state of focused attention. Simply put, hypnosis is an amplifying and focusing technique employed with either interactive guided imagery or as applied meditation toward a specific goal while in various levels of a trance state.
“Is hypnosis dangerous?”
Absolutely not. Hypnosis was approved by the Council of Mental Health of the American Medical Association in September of 1958 as a safe practice with no harmful side effects.
