Is it true that with hypnosis, producing mental images on a patient can produce physical changes on the person's body if the images are, for example, of a traumatic experience like being tied with ropes behind his back and with hypnosis, this person develops indentations on his forearms that look like rope marks. I just read that a man experienced this in real life, can mental images really cause physical changes on a person's body like this? if so, can you explain how this is possible.

Not sure if that's possible or not, however I have been hypnotized twice, in a past life regression session and hypnosis is really different than I thought it would be or perhaps someone can imagine. I was able to hear street noises while at the same time experiencing another lifetime. Quite interesting to say the least. I think people give to much creedence to hypnosis's ability to change someone, or inflict damage in some, way but hey, because I haven't experienced it I can't say for sure. I only know what I have experienced.

I have been hypnotized twice in my life, and neither one "took". I think it's very over rated. I'm a very tense person though, so that may have had something to do with it. You don't act silly like they do on tv either.

Under hypnosis you would not do anything you wouldn't do not under hypnosis.
Yes, that is a misconception about hypnosis you are not completely "out"
