Clinical hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that uses hypnosis to induce a state of deep relaxation and promote positive change. Medical hypnosis is a safe and effective complementary technique for use in medical procedures and in the treatment of many conditions.
According to the American Psychological Association (APA), Hypnosis is defined as “a state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion.” Hypnosis changes the state of consciousness of a person and allows unconscious experiences to become a modified way of looking at reality.
