When you hear the term “hypnosis,” you likely picture a stage magician levitating a sleeping woman or a self-proclaimed hypnotist making a man cluck like a hen when he hears his name. These images of the hypnotist at work are deeply rooted in the public imagination and part of a cultural fascination with the mystical or the occult. And while it makes for great entertainment, it has very little in common with real, practical hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy has a long history—as long as the history of medicine, in fact!—and has been used as a tool for healing, growth, and personal change since the late 1800s. Recent studies continue to shed light on the power of hypnosis to help unlock the brain’s hidden potential and bring about positive change.
