Hypnosis 101 with Taylor Sherman

In this episode...

Today on the Soul of Life I call in a professional hypnotist to help me keep my head in the game of tennis. I think you’ll get a kick out of seeing Taylor Sherman try to improve my tennis game and you can follow right along as he uses a deep relaxation technique and guided imagery that may also help you deepen your own focus and resolve.

People know hypnosis for really three things: stopping smoking, losing weight and lowering stress, but Taylor performs hypnosis to help people change all sorts of habits, and he specializes in using hypnosis for improving athletic performance. We talk about how hypnosis works in the brain, what kind of people are most likely to benefit from hypnosis, and where is hypnosis less effective?

"We had one person who came into a group hypnosis session and actually believed they were going to lose 20 pounds in the session itself. That they were going to walk out 20 pounds lighter."

-Taylor Sherman, professional hypnotist in Washington, DC
