Medical Hypnosis is the use of clinical hypnosis to treat medical conditions and to enhance health and well-being. When we are undergoing hypnosis, we are in a state of focused attention which allows us to access the creative part of our mind and be receptive to suggestions for healing and change. Hypnosis has been shown to be effective in the treatment of chronic pain, stress, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, nausea associated with chemotherapy, tinnitus, surgery preparation and autoimmune disorders, among many others. It has proven to be very beneficial and usually leads to a substantial reduction of symptoms and increased comfort. Additionally, as we work together you will be learning self-hypnosis in order to utilize this skill on your own to continue experiencing a reduction in your medical symptoms.
Frequently asked questions about hypnosis:
- Will I be “out” during hypnosis?
No, you will remain alert and aware during the experience. You will feel relaxed and very much in control of yourself and your actions.
- Will I do anything embarrassing during hypnosis?
No, it is not possible for you to do anything that you do not wish to do while experiencing hypnosis.
- Is it like the hypnotist I saw on stage once?
Medical hypnosis is nothing like the lay hypnosis that is done for entertainment by someone with no medical training. I am a professional with extensive academic and clinical training in conducting hypnosis for medical issues in order to help you achieve your goals.
