The Difference Between Meditation and Hypnosis For Relaxation

At first blush, meditation and hypnosis may appear to be similar relaxation techniques. Both involve quieting the conscious mind, which works constantly throughout the day and needs a break in order for us to avoid "burnout." However, hypnosis relaxation is a bit more goal-oriented than meditation. It typically involves incorporating thoughts, images and/or sounds while you are under hypnosis. Think of meditation as an instrumental version of your favorite pop song and hypnosis as that same song you love but with the words included. Both are effective tools; you need only decide which is appropriate for your relaxation needs at that time.
