Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 12, 2007
A recent survey by the Ontario Hypnosis Centre in Toronto, Ontario Canada showed that in a group of 2,000 individuals with 74.4% women and 27.6% percent men, 69.8% had used or were currently using complementary health care practices. Of those in the study with ages ranging from late teens to 70 years of age, all had tried a wide range of complementary medicine with the majority 70.9 % using massage and 69.8% having used hypnotherapy. Following those were other modalities ranging from: Reiki, Chiropractic, Homeopathy, Chinese medicine and others.
The study showed that 64.7% understood that all hypnosis was actually self-hypnosis and 72.9% knew that they were always in control rather than the outmoded belief that hypnosis takes over ones mind. 52% said their awareness of the benefits of hypnosis had changed over the past ten years and 47.2% said they understood the difference between clinical and stage hypnosis.
In the last several years complementary medicine is being used widely by individuals for stress management and a variety of other complaints.
