I just got back from two full days of taping a show for "Myth Buster" on the Discovery Channel. The purpose of the show was to debunk the myth that hypnosis could make you do things you didn't want to do and some other "stuff".
I am about to take a nice warm shower and chill out a little but I did want to share something that was so validating about hypnosis. There were three "Myth Busters" and each one was hooked up to EEG and various biofeedback equipment during the "testing for suggestibility phase". The EEG totally correlated with the degree of suggestibility that the participants showed. During the actual hypnosis session, one could see the alpha waves going into theta as the participant went more and more deeply into hypnosis.
The misconceptions about hypnosis are so prevalent out there.
