The term "hypnosis" comes from the Greek word “hypnos” meaning, "sleep." Hypnotherapists use exercises that bring about deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness, also known as a trance. In fact the person would be in a state of “Deep focused relaxation with heightened awareness”.
A person, in a deeply focused state, is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but this does not mean that a hypnotist can control the person's mind and free will.
It refers to techniques that bypass the conscious mind and use altered mental states to facilitate behavioral, emotional, or attitudinal change, to treat stress, phobias, and therapeutic side effects, and to promote healing.

Every Human being in the World has a “Body & a Mind”.
The structure of everyone’s mind is :


Allopathic Medicines deal with physical aspects of the body. Psychiatry deals
with the “Conscious Mind” (which is just 10 %) & further they use different types
of drugs like anti – depressants & tranquilizers. Consequently please note that
all “Training Programs, Personality Upliftment Modules, Psychiatric suggestions and Psychometric Models & Tests” deal with just the 10 % of our
Conscious Mind.
If you searched Google for “Normally used Psychiatric Drugs”, it lists out 101 active drugs used by Psychiatrists. It also gives details of  “side effects” of each of these drugs.
Hypnosis deals with the 90 % of our Sub – Conscious Minds, that is left unattended to & which is a major “Trigger Point of many of our mental / Physical - actions / reactions”. It is like working furiously on the Gear – Box to set the Car right, when the problem is actually with the Main Engine.
