While the thought of hypnosis as treatment for medical conditions may seem unusual, the truth is that medical hypnosis can actual promote and protect your health.

This is, instead, a clinical procedure that is used in conjunction with other treatment and therapies. In fact, there are several benefits to medical hypnosis, which you can learn more about by reading below:
