Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapeutic intervention.
The therapist leads the patient to positive change while the patient is
deeply relaxed in a state of heightened suggestibility called trance.
Hypnotherapy has been used to stop self-destructive and addictive habits
like smoking. It has also been used to curb the urge to eat for
overeaters, to stem the disruptive actions of tics, relieve insomnia
stop bed-wetting, and minimize anxiety. Excessive stress can be generated from any number of sources and can be the springboard
for anxiety. Some of the more prominent sources of anxiety and stress for
which people seek hypnotherapy are: public speaking, test taking, and job
stress. Hypnotherapy also works well for other anxiety disorders such as
fears and phobias.
