Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It's important to know that although you're more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don't lose control over your behavior.
Why it's done? Hypnotherapy can be an effective method for coping with stress and anxiety.
Hypnosis may help with pain due to burns, cancer, childbirth, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, temporomandibular joint problems, dental procedures and headaches.
Hypnosis may help treat symptoms of anxiety, phobias and post-traumatic stress.
