A Comprehensive Learning Experience on the Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is an intensely relaxed mode that leaves individuals in a naturally occurring and enhanced state of awareness (also known as a trance). In this state, an individual may focus specific attention on certain tasks or suggestions. Hypnotherapy sessions may be conducted in the comfort of an office, in the emergency room (in the event a serious situation should occur) or even at the dentist (to control gag reflex and bleeding). These sessions are conducted by certified or licensed mental health professionals that teach individuals how to master their own states of awareness (contrary to the popular concept that hypnotherapy is some form of mind control).

Though hypnotherapy (and similar modalities of treatment) have been documented throughout the course of history, the practice truly gained popularity in the mid-1900s when a well-known psychiatrist, Milton H. Erickson, successfully utilized hypnosis in his practice for treating patients with various ailments. Then, in 1958, both the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association accepted hypnotherapy as a valid medical procedure.
