Hypnotherapy is a medical modality which has been available to healers for thousands of years, yet it is often thought of as quackery and few doctors routinely recommend it. This is a real disservice to patients everywhere. If it only helped alleviate the anxiety surrounding diagnosis and treatment it would be worthwhile but there is so much more.
It is upsetting to me that I was not exposed to hypnosis and its uses when I was in training or practice, it would have been so very useful in the Emergency Department. Now, instead of taking classes purely for fun, puttering in the garden and traveling, I have a hypnosis practice to try to do my bit making others more aware.
