What is Medical Hypnosis?

Medical hypnosis is a specialized form of hypnosis that harnesses the power of the mind/body connection to:

  • enhance healing of acute conditions
  • manage chronic symptoms
  • increase comfort before/after procedures
  • manage stress (nearly 90% of all doctor visits are due to stress-related problems)
