Your subconscious is powerful. You have the power within you to heal. Hypnotherapy can help you activate those parts so that you can find the answers you seek. Hypnotherapy has been used in psychology for a while, but has also been used for helping women prepare for birth to reduce pain, helping individuals with bulimia, and other treatment uses.
Hypnotherapy began around the 1700’s and has continued to this day due to its usefulness in helping alieve pain and other symptoms. Originally discovered by Franz Friedrich Anton Mesmer (1734-1815), it was later changed and utilized for psychotherapy due to help from Milton H. Erickson, M.D. (1901-1980) in the 1950’s. This became “Ericksonian hypnotherapy” and is the conversational hypnotherapy you see used in many psychotherapeutic practices today, including ours.
