What does hypnotherapy feel like?

Hypnotherapy temporarily alters brain wave activity, lowers blood pressure and lowers heart rate. It induces a state of complete relaxation of body and mind. The subject cannot feel any of life's stresses or worries. He is happy, calm and at ease. At the same time, while in a completely relaxed state, the subject is fully awake, mentally alert and can respond to the hypnotherapist's suggestions.
