In simplest terms, medical hypnosis is the use of hypnosis to achieve physical healing. While the most common use of hypnosis is to create changes in psychological behaviours and patterns, medical hypnotherapy deals with the physical being and psychogenic disorders.

Physical issues may include autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, physical trauma recovery, preparation for and from surgery and many more, whilst psychogenic disorders are physical illnesses that stem from emotional or mental stresses.

There are many common conditions that can be treated by medical hypnotherapy. These include Irritable Bowel Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, some physical symptoms associated with cancer treatment (e.g. nausea, weight loss, insomnia, pain and fatigue), Psoriasis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

Medical hypnotherapy can also help prepare people for many medical and surgical procedures, has no side effects and can also bring psychological benefits with regard to emotional and mental well being.

How Does Medical Hypnotherapy Work?

Medical hypnotherapy leverages the power of the subconscious mind to promote positive physical changes. The subconscious mind plays a significant role in governing bodily functions, such as wound healing, immune function, blood pressure, and heart function. Through hypnosis, the subconscious mind can be effectively reset to align with the body’s natural healing processes and overcome any subconscious or psychological obstacles to physical health. By working in harmony with the subconscious, medical hypnotherapy supports the body’s innate healing abilities.
