Marriage Advice: Can Hypnosis Save Your Relationship? (VIDEO)

Even the happiest couples experience relationship slumps at some point. So how do you keep things from going from bad to worse? Hypnosis could be the answer, world renowned hypnotist Tom Silver said on "The Jeff Probst Show" Wednesday.

Silver told Probst that the focused attention demanded by hypnosis could potentially save a troubled relationship:

"[Couples] get comfortable and it's like, 'You didn't do this for me, I'm not doing this for you,' and all of a sudden, you've lost something, you've lost that essense of that love and that relationship," he said. "Under hypnosis, you can rekindle that -- you can even bring back the same emotions they felt when they first met."

According to the International Association of Pure Hypnoanalysts, hypnosis is a state of relaxation in which someone remains completely awake and susceptible to suggestions. Though the technique can be used to "modify your perceptions [and] behavior," persons remain completely in control of their actions, according to the Mayo Clinic.
