Medical hypnosis is the intentional induction, deepening, maintenance, and termination of the natural trance state to reduce suffering, to promote healing, or to help alter destructive behavior. Hypnosis was recognized as a complimentary healing modality by the British Medical Association in 1955, the American Medical Association in 1958 (there are “definite and proper uses of hypnosis in medical and dental practice”), and the American Psychiatric Association in 1961. Research has shown hypnosis to be effective in complex health issues such as infertility, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), allergies, erectile dysfunction, pain (and an alternative to sedation), and to increase healing after surgery. Medical hypnosis has also been shown to be effective in dermatology and surgery applications. We have heard several counts of hypnosis completely curing deep rooted addictions, anxiety, eating disorders, phobias, OCD, and other compulsive behaviors such as over-eating, shopping and nail biting!

Relieving anxiety, phobias, and compulsive behavior can then result in relief for physical health issues such as insomnia, TMJ, and IBS. We also find hypnosis to be directly effective at treating insomnia by inducing sleep and we have experienced the benefits first hand. Regular hypnosis allows for the learning of self-hypnosis,  whereby one can gain control over thought patterns for the purposes of relaxation, lowering blood pressure and heart rate, and inducing sleep. Best of all, hypnosis is completely natural without any side effects! Everyone can benefit from hypnotherapy for personal improvement, especially for combating stress and boosting the immune system. We encourage you to consider it as a natural alternative to potentially harmful medication.
