Health Issues, Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy
“Some people use it to ease their aching backs. Others find it relieves eczema. Even one of the hot-air balloonists who broke world records by flying around the globe admits he relied on it to steady his nerves and catch some sleep while at the mercy of the jet stream. Hypnotherapy, or trance work, is a group of techniques that allow practitioners and patients to take advantage of the mind-body connection to foster healing. It’s also one of the most common referrals we make for our patients here at the University of Arizona’s Integrative Medicine Clinic. I’ve often recommended it … for a wide variety of conditions.”
—Dr. Andrew Weil, Self Healing newsletter

Even with health issues considered “difficult” to treat, such as addictions, chronic pain, and insomnia, hypnosis and hypnotherapy regularly get such positive results that clients are quite surprised.
