Default Hypnosis

Heeeeey! I feel like this topic fits this section of threads.
Do you guys feel like hypnosis actually works? If so, do you feel like it's spiritual, or just psychological? As in, you believe it works so therefore you access the information because of that?
I don't know what I think about this actually. That'd be cool if it's not just a psychological thing. I'd like to test it out myself actually. So what do you guys think about this?

It's a psychological fact. I don't know the details however.

It works, psychologically, because people expect it to work, so it allows their mind to enter a more suggestible state. Of course, any use of it to find memories or something similar is dubious at best and can often be highly unreliable - someone skilled in psychology can use it to 'create' the memories they want by suggesting things.

I guess it's not very useful if it's all based on placebo effect
