Before we get into how hypnosis can help you improve your overall health, it’s important to note that most people have the wrong idea about hypnosis. When it comes to medicine — using hypnosis as a method to heal — hypnosis refers to helping the patient reach a deep state of relaxation. The role of hypnosis in medicine is still evolving, but is being considered in various uses much more than a few decades ago.

Despite what you may think, hypnosis doesn’t involve the patient simply following a set of instructions. An encounter with a hypnotherapist does not involve any swinging pocket watches, and you won’t be made to quack like a duck. Instead, it focuses on actually changing the perception in your brain. It makes your mind more open to suggestions. Basically, you learn to start using your brain and thought to help yourself feel better.

Another important element of healing with hypnosis is that the hypnotic state is a natural state that reduces your brainwave frequency. And the simple fact of reducing your brainwave frequency to under 14 MHz is supporting your inner healing system in a way that science is trying to understand on a deeper level.

Hypnosis and Healing

The biggest myth surrounding hypnosis is that you lose control when you are hypnotized. In fact, if you examine it closely, you see that hypnosis can actually be considered self-hypnosis, since the patient will always be in control. The main goal of this type of treatment is to help you realize that all you need to fight your condition is already within you.

Hypnosis has been used in healing for a very long time. It first started getting used in ancient Egypt and ancient Greece. It was popularized during the 18th century when a man named Franz Anton Mesmer started noticing its therapeutic value. Hypnosis was starting to get used in medical applications during the 19th century. At the time, it was only being used by Scottish and English physicians. But did you know that since then, countless major surgical operations were being performed using hypnosis as the only anesthesia…

Although hypnosis may seem like it’s too good to be true, it actually works. Hypnosis is mostly used to address physical and mental illnesses associated with excess stress. Here are the five most notable medical uses for hypnosis.


In certain circumstances, hypnosis can be used as the only form of anesthetic for a surgery. It can even be used for serious surgical procedures such as amputation, removal of the gall bladder, and cesarean section. Sometimes, due to a patient’s hyper-sensitivity or allergy to chemical anesthesia, surgeons turn to hypnotherapists for help. Additionally, sometimes surgeons require conditions in which the patient is able to respond to their directives or questions.


It’s a well-known fact that medications can increase the risk of something going wrong during childbirth for both the mother and child. Nevertheless, not every woman is able to handle the pain during childbirth. When a woman doesn’t want to use medication but also can’t stand the pain, a hypnotherapist could provide some assistance. In fact, hypnosis can be the sole analgesic for labor.

It’s also worth noting that hypnosis can help reduce vomiting and nausea during pregnancy.

Chronic Pain

It doesn’t matter if you’re suffering from back pain, migraines, headaches, rheumatism, or arthritis, hypnosis can help you deal with the pain. It will also make it easier for you to perform everyday tasks without you paying too much attention to the pain.
