There is much more to hypnotherapy than just listening to self-induced hypnotic audio or receiving suggestions from a hypnotist. While these are both valid components of hypnosis, there is far more science behind the method. Brain waves are influential in the effectiveness of hypnosis. Your brain has
several states; they are:

  • Beta: Waking state
  • Alpha: Focused concentration
  • Theta: Deep meditation
  • Delta: Dream state

When the brain is in the alpha or theta state, hypnosis is successful. The mind is influenced during the delta and theta states. In this situation, the voice can be a compelling tool; hence the hypnotherapist is a critical influencer here. The subconscious mind can be seen as the relationship between the nervous system and the conscious mind. This is how hypnosis is often-times used to unblock memories.
