Hypnosis is defined as a modified conscious state, different to sleeping or dreaming. You will have already experienced it as it occurs in many aspects of life (like being absorbed by a movie, when listening to music or when driving on the highway).

The OMNI method

Gerald Kein, the founder of the OMNI Hypnosis Training Center (OHTC, 1979), based his method on that of Dave Elman’s (1900-1967). The latter is one of the foremost figures of Hypnotism of the 20th century. He brought forward his own school of thoughts as well as specific hypnotic techniques (Elman Hypnosis). This method is certified ISO 9001.

The Underlying Principle 

When in a state of hypnosis, you remain conscious and in touch with reality. You cannot be made to do anything that you would not have decided to do for yourself. You can leave this state at any time.

When in this state, your brain becomes more receptive to suggestion; your memory as well as the involuntary control of physiological processes can be modified. Hypnosis enables the hypnotherapist (Frédéric Aebischer) to intervene on certain processes of communication which occur between the mind and body, in order to restore balance and a proper functioning to the nervous system.
