What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a technique very much like daydreaming; it enables a person to achieve an altered state of consciousness for the purpose of directing attention to a specific goal. Behavioral changes are made over time without anxiety.
While in the hypnotic state, the patient has complete control of his actions, and cannot be forced to do anything immoral or illegal. The patient remains capable of making decisions based on his own values, religious beliefs, or accepted patterns of social behavior. The belief that hypnosis is mystical or witchcraft is a myth popularized by media and theatrical events. There are no negative side effects of hypnotherapy. On the contrary, there are many beneficial results for the patient when this unique form of therapy is practiced appropriately.
