Hypnosis is more than tricks and mirrors. Many have conceptions of it being a circus show with catch phrases and induced trances that remove control. This is farther from the truth. Hypnotherapy is actually a respected alternative therapy with more and more states even adding regulations to how it is presented by professionals.
The American College of Hypnotherapy with AIHCP offers an extensive Clinical Hypntotherapy Program for qualified professionals who seek to use hypnotherapy in their practice. Through this, one can see that hypnotherapy has multiple layers of proven strategies to help individuals deal with subconscious trauma. Hypnotherapy can help many with past pain and other issues that the conscious mind does not wish to deal with.
Hypnotherapy can also aid individuals with more basic issues, such as overcoming phobias or quitting bad habits.
The article, “Discover: ‘You’re getting sleepy’ — the amazing science of hypnosis” by Jenny Lamothe looks deeper at the science of Hypnotherapy. She states,
“Hypnotherapy, the practice of accessing the subconscious mind in order to change behaviour, has been around for some time – more than 200 years really. And though it began as a pseudoscience, without much in the way of standard practice and some outlandish theories to say the least – how’s the idea of disease called ‘animal magnetism’ featuring an internal liquid magnetic force – it has now been shown not only to have an effect on the subconscious mind, but a measureable one. ”
