What Happens if I Fall Asleep During Hypnosis?

Updated: Apr 7

Hypnosis is a form of complementary and alternative medicine that induces deep relaxation and concentration to facilitate change in an individual's thoughts, behaviors, and habits. While it is common for individuals to feel relaxed and even fall asleep during Hypnosis, this does not mean the Hypnosis session is ineffective.

During Hypnosis, the individual is in a state of deep relaxation, similar to the state of consciousness that occurs during sleep. However, it is essential to note that the individual is not asleep during Hypnosis. Instead, they are in a state of increased focus and suggestibility, which allows them to be more open to suggestions and to make positive changes in their thoughts and behaviors.

Even if an individual falls asleep during Hypnosis, this does not mean the session did not work. On the contrary, the subconscious mind remains active and receptive to suggestions even during sleep, so the individual may still experience the positive effects of the Hypnosis session.
