Hypnosis is safe and effective if done by properly trained and licensed health care professionals

Share Article

In light of recent media reports of hypnosis being performed by unlicensed individuals, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis has published an article on their website that outlines how hypnosis will be optimally effective when the patient is highly motivated to overcome a problem and when the practitioner is well trained in both hypnosis and in the general considerations relating to the treatment of the particular problem.

The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) does not support the practice of hypnosis by individuals who lack professional education and clinical training in a health care discipline.

Many practitioners claim to offer hypnosis to the public for a variety of purposes such as: losing weight, managing pain, or stopping smoking, etc. Frequently, extravagant statements and guarantees are presented in a sensational way, and it can be confusing for those wishing to use hypnosis.

In light of these claims and recent media reports about the use of hypnosis by untrained professionals, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis has published an article on the safe and effective use of hypnosis if done by properly trained individuals. The article can be found on the ASCH website or by clicking here.
