Hypnosis (Definition)

Hypnosis has been shown in some studies to help with nausea and vomiting. The term "hypnosis" comes from the Greek word hypnos, meaning "sleep."

What to do if i faked my hypnosis session yesterday?

You can expect : no improvement. Faking or lying to your therapist/hypnotist only misled you. They need honest feedback in order to best help you. If you weren't relaxed enough, ask for more suggestion and time to relax before they implant suggestions. This process requires trust and honesty on both parties to work. Try again tell them what happened. They will understand and be glad you told the truth hopefully! ...Read more
