Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses a state of hypnosis to help clients change emotional and behavioral responses. When people are hypnotized, they are physically relaxed while mentally concentrating – and they are more open to suggestion. Hypnotherapy has been used for hundreds of years and benefited millions of people in many cultures. An analysis of 18 studies found that combining hypnotherapy with cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) led to a 70% greater improvement than when CBT was used alone.
