Medical hypnosis is an accepted psychotherapeutic method to effectively solve problems or cure or alleviate disorders (acute or chronic, psychosomatic and physical).
Clinicians now agree that hypnosis can be a powerful, effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders. Hypnosis can also help people change their habits, such as quitting smoking.
Hypnosis is used to help people with depression, gastro-intestinal disorders and other health problems. Because hypnosis can help people manage and, in some cases, recover from illness, it is becoming a more common part of treatment plans.
To promote healing, searching and learning processes, either hypnosis in the more formal sense is practiced or everyday trance processes can be used for therapeutic work. In addition, hypnotherapy can also be designed as a self-hypnosis training.
