The answer is simple and straightforward:
Hypnosis can be put into use to improve one's general well being and functioning so that one feels better both physically and mentally.
Some of the common frequently asked questions on hypnosis (by the subject to the hypnotherapist) are:
What can hypnosis do to me?
When I am in a trance, can you make me do things that are silly, like barking like a dog or crying like a baby?
Can you make me do something against my will, like pickpocket someone or kiss a stranger?
Will I reveal my innermost secrets that I have never revealed to any one before?
Will I get stuck in one position and never come out of the trance?
Could I harm myself or someone during the trance?All these doubts are based on the basic distrust that the individual has against hypnosis and the prevailing myths about hypnosis.
Make Hypnosis Work for You
The fact is that during hypnotic trance, no one can make you act against your own moral and social values and acceptable patterns of behavior. That is, unless you want to, you cannot be manipulated against your will!
It is important to understand that even during deep trance, you remain conscious and under control. The hypnotist only makes you act according to the dictum of your own conscious and subconscious. You can terminate the trance state any time you feel like.
Even if you are left in trance state by the hypnotist or a hypnotic tape, you would either return to normal wakeful state on your own, or enter a natural sleep and wake up feeling fresh and energetic. In the centuries old history of hypnosis there has never been any incident of an individual remaining 'under hypnotic trance' for prolonged period of time.

Well have you ever read a book, and felt emotions from reading that book. I’m sure you have, would you ever say those emotions where as a result of black ink on white paper? No of course not, they were a result of you using your imagination, bringing the story and characters to life in your mind. Well that’s exactly what hypnosis is, using the power of your imagination to create biochemical changes within you. What are biochemicals? Well they’re emotions. Let me give you a quick example… Example of how hypnosis creates change within you I want you to imagine that you are in your kitchen, imagine that you walk over to the fridge and pretend to open it in your mind. Then imagine you see a bowl of big juicy yellow lemons. Imagine grabbing one with your hand and taking it out of the fridge. Imagine that it’s yellow rind feels cold and waxy in your hand. Then imagine taking a knife and cutting into it, the fibers of the lemon tearing and the juices squeezing out. And then for a moment close your eyes imagine taking that juicy yellow lemon and biting deep into it. Then notice the saliva in your mouth. It increased didn’t it! And what’s saliva? It’s a biochemical. I know it’s just a small and common biochemical, but by using your imagination we created a biochemical change within you. And that’s how hypnosis works. During hypnosis, we use your imagination to create the exact emotional and biochemical changes within you to create the change that you want in your life at an unconscious level.
