What is Hypnotherapy?
It is an accepted form of therapy which helps people overcome various ailments via a relaxed mind and strategic suggestion.
“While most people fear losing control in hypnosis, it is in fact a means of enhancing mind-body control,” Spiegel (Former President of the American College of Psychiatrists and the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis) says.
Believe it or not, you likely enter a hypnotic state at least twice a day. Common examples include arriving at your destination without memory of driving there, daydreaming, zoning out while reading the page of a book, or becoming so engrossed in the drama you’re binge watching that you barely realize half a day has passed.
IS IT HARMFUL?
The idea that one can become stuck in a hypnotized trance is a common misconception. In truth, hypnotized people never lose control of their mind or body, and are able to come out of the hypnotized state as easily as opening their eyes.

A growing body of scientific research supports its benefits in treating a wide range of conditions, including pain, depression, anxiety and phobias. Patients also can become more empowered by practicing self-hypnosis at home to reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, or alleviate some symptoms of depression or anxiety.
