​Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of hypnosis to create subconscious change. This change comes in the form of new responses, attitudes, behaviors or feelings. Together, the hypnotherapist and client work to decide on the changes and goals desired.

In 1955, the British Medical Association officially accepted the use of hypnotherapy as a valid medical treatment. The American Medical Association followed suit by approving its use in 1958. Today hypnosis is used in a number of fields of medicine and research. Research on the effectiveness of hypnotherapy on a variety of conditions – whether as a primary therapy, or adjunct to other techniques is extensive.

​Most often, the feeling of being in hypnosis is compared to daydreaming,  or the feeling of “losing yourself” in a good book or movie.

The majority of people can achieve a state of hypnosis. For most purposes, a light state of hypnosis is all that is required in order to experience the benefits of hypnotherapy.

​ Hypnosis is a state of consciousness involving enhanced focused attention and concentration, while blocking out distractions. This state also entails a heightened response to suggestion or direction. The conscious mind becomes less involved and the subconscious mind becomes more engaged in the subject at hand. During hypnosis a person is typically physically relaxed and at rest, while being aware and in control at all time.
