Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Hypnosis is a state of detached awareness, almost like a daydream. Under this state, with a responsible hypnotist, it is possible to implement some amazing positive changes on both the mind and the body. This is because under hypnosis the subconscious mind becomes much more receptive to suggestion. This in turn helps reshape negative patterns, reinforce positive solutions and also override any negative emotions or associations.
