Hypnosis for Medical Issues?


Most are surprised to know that hypnosis is used to treat various medical conditions. Yet, this is an area of ongoing research showing the benefits of hypnosis in conjunction with standard medical treatment. And at times, it’s been shown that hypnosis alone can alleviate some medical and emotional symptoms.

Take a look below and read about some of the many things hypnosis can do to augment current traditional medical treatment, reduce symptoms and even reduce medication use (of course, you’ll work in conjunction with your prescribing provider for medication changes).
