Hypnosis is a Legitimate Tool for Wellness Backed by Science
Many people ask if hypnotherapy is effective. Sometimes the question is more subtle and disguised under a request for data. How much success rate do you have? It is a fair question, the kind of question that we should all ask when it comes to seeking help from any scientific therapy. But do you ask the same question when meeting with a more traditional practitioner?
There is an urgent need for education about certified hypnotherapy services. The American Psychological Association on its page Looking beyond the media portrayal educates the public on the benefits of hypnosis. Actually many medical and psychological associations have endorsed hypnosis because it really works and its benefits last a long time.
How Does Hypnotherapy Compare Against Other Therapies?
We cannot emphasize enough the considerable amount of research on hypnosis. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are rooted in science with evidence-based results that have been reported for decades. Here are the astounding results from a comparative study released in 1970.
- Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
- Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
- Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions
According to this study, hypnotherapy can be more effective and faster than other traditional approaches.
Other studies show a significant reduction in pain levels thanks to hypnosis for pain management. The ramifications are many, the most important one being the ability to keep people away from addictive pills. Another benefit of hypnosis is the reinforcement of self-esteem. A disease can be devastating enough, but sometimes the perceived sense of loss of control can be a major roadblock to recovery.
Why Should I Consider Hypnosis as a First-Resort Tool?
Firstly, research shows its benefits and medical and psychological associations supports its use for a series of ailments (pain, anxiety, IBS…). The benefits are long-lasting. Hypnosis gives you access to your inner resources.
Also, hypnotherapy is a client-centered approach that acknowledges the mind-body connection. The body is not just a bag of hormones and cells. Thoughts and emotions influence physiology.
Finally, hypnosis is a natural state. A skilled hypnotherapist guides you into that state and you are actively entering it. Because it is a natural state, it is safe. The icing on the cake is that you might experience some very positive side-effects. It is very common for people to report better sleep after hypnotherapy sessions unrelated to sleep.
How do I Know that Hypnosis is for Me?
In a nutshell, hypnosis can help you change habits and deal with emotional and physical challenges. The mind can overcome DNA. If you are still reproducing the same negative patterns when you logically know that you should make changes to your life, then hypnosis is for you. If you are interested in exploring a safe and fast way to achieve greater wellbeing and performance, then you should do some hypnosis. There has never been a better time for you to leverage your inner capabilities and make the most of your life. Please consult our dedicated page on what hypnosis can treat.

Hypnosis can help address conditions unique to each gender.
