My nose itches. Am I going to pop myself out of hypnosis and ruin the session?

While in hypnosis, it’s perfectly fine to attend to any physical needs. You can itch, scratch or shift yourself in the chair, feel free to do so. Hypnosis is not simply an on/off phenomenon. It is a continuum of consciousness. So, while you feel the itch, you may slide into a slightly lighter level of trance. The best thing you can do is to scratch the itch because doing so is going to immediately make it easier and easier for you to go deeper into drowsy relaxation. Finally, if you need a blanket or suddenly feel the need to go to the restroom, just let me know and we’ll find a way to make it happen easily and readily.
