It is my belief that hypnotherapy is the best complimentary therapy
because hypnosis affects people at every level including psychological,
physiological, emotional, and even spiritual. And really, only
hypnotherapy has the power to do that.

It allows you to work on specific problems one by one, but at the same
time, it can improve your overall health and well-being in several areas
concurrently. Some people seek hypnotherapy to address a specific area
while others seek the overall benefits of hypnosis on a regular, ongoing
basis. Many people use hypnosis alone while others supplement it with
other forms of therapy.

Although every form of therapy is valuable on its own, there is a
definite overlap within all methods of treatment. What hypnosis does is
it provides a link and it connects those areas together physiologically.

Whether you are in physical therapy recovering from an injury, or in
psychotherapy due to emotional stress, it doesn’t matter. Hypnosis can
compliment either or both of those treatments, because hypnosis has the
power to affect all those areas in a positive way. So in compliment to
your physical therapy, it can help you cope on an emotional level with
the strain of the injury.

If you are trying acupuncture to help you quit smoking, there is a
specific technique that addresses your physical need for nicotine, but
acupuncture alone does little to tackle the psychological craving, the
mental tug of war that plays out in the early stages of breaking any
pattern of long standing, habitual behaviour. Hypnotherapy can compliment
the acupuncture by addressing the psychological need for relief.
Another excellent example of combined therapy is the effect of
aromatherapy. When I tried an aromatherapy massage, there is no question
I was subdued into total relaxation. It was a fantastic experience in
itself, and in my case, I actually achieved hypnosis. It’s beneficial by
itself, or it can be used as an aide for inducing hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy utilizes a mixture of different models that people are
already exerting; they’re just made more powerful when used with
hypnosis. Nearly all therapies are successful at producing change in a
specific area. Hypnotherapy simply produces change in more areas. This
fact makes it the best complimentary therapy in addition to being an
excellent stand alone treatment for many problems, specific or combined.

It is important to remember that hypnotherapy is not intended to replace
modern medicine or in any way refute its effectiveness. You may choose to
use hypnotherapy alone instead of mainstream treatment for whatever
condition you are addressing, and that’s a personal choice any individual
can make, but it’s not our mandate as hypnotherapists to replace modern
medicine, nor do we suggest that hypnosis ever could.

Alternative medicine, which is quite commonly used these days, is very
much positioned to offer people a different way to address their health
issues. It essentially opposes traditional medicine, by offering stand
alone treatments that would directly conflict with traditional treatment
and cannot be safely or effectively combined. I would absolutely not
place hypnotherapy in that category. Hypnotherapists are not in
competition with doctors and health care workers, and we do not suggest
that anyone abandon their medical practitioner in favour of hypnotherapy.

By contrast, I believe that hypnosis is an excellent companion to modern
medicine. We tend to forget that hypnosis has been used for many years by
doctors and health care professionals like psychologists. It in no way
undermines the effectiveness of modern treatment. Rather, it can
compliment it quite naturally and quite effectively.

For instance, if you are trying to quit smoking, hypnotherapy alone can
help immensely, but if you are also using the patch, then you are
increasing your odds of success. There is no conflict… one treatment
works extremely well with the other.

If you are taking any type of treatment for a medical condition and you
find yourself struggling with the side effects, you can turn to
hypnotherapy to alleviate the intensity of the side effects and increase
you tolerance of the medication, so that it can do its job.

The word alternative suggests that we are looking for a different way of
doing things. We’re not. We’re looking to provide a means for the
improved physical and mental health of anyone and everyone who needs it.
I believe that modern medicine is already doing that. I also believe that
hypnotherapy is the ultimate complimentary therapy and can help in so
many ways.
