Clinical hypnosis is the application of hypnosis to medical conditions. Hypnotherapy is not an alternative to proper medical treatment but can sometimes complement medical treatment. To complement medical treatment is to fill in the gaps that the medical treatment cannot fill. It is not an alternative to proper medical care. For example, Professor Peter Whorwell has for many years been researching the effectiveness or hypnotherapy in treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Hypnosis has been used to treat medical conditions safely for hundreds of years. Science now acknowledges the mind / body link in the study of psychoneuroimmunology.
Clinical Hypnosis can help with Medical Conditions
Clinical hypnosis is thought to be effective in two ways. Firstly, by helping resolve any psychological issues influencing the complaint (such as stress) and secondly, by helping mobilise the body’s healing mechanisms through focusing the subconscious on the site of the problem.
Many believe that there is a psychological component to all physical conditions therefore making it possible that there is a clinical application for hypnotherapy in all physical complaints; everything from allergies to warts.
