The Therapeutic Effects of Hypnosis

by Oasis Wellness Partners on May 19, 2023       Oasis Wellness Partners

Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique that aims to induce a trance-like state in which individuals become more receptive to suggestions and are deeply focused on their internal experiences. It can be used for a variety of conditions, including anxiety, phobias, smoking cessation, weight management, and chronic pain management. We are very proud of the successful results delivered by Laura Szafranski, our Oasis Wellness Partners team member and Scarborough’s Certified Consulting Hypnotist Hypnosis!

Clinical research concludes (and our treatment history confirms) that hypnosis can be effective for a range of conditions when used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. For example, a review of studies published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis found evidence supporting the use of hypnosis for pain management, particularly in reducing chronic pain intensity and related distress. Hypnosis has also demonstrated positive outcomes in addressing anxiety disorders, smoking cessation, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

The effectiveness of hypnosis treatment is influenced by various factors, including the individual's receptivity to hypnosis, the skill and experience of the hypnotherapist, the specific goals of the treatment, and the individual's commitment to the process. Our experience is that most people respond quite positively to this form of treatment.

If you are considering hypnosis treatment, contact Oasis Wellness Partners. It is vital that you consult with a qualified and licensed hypnotherapist (like Laura). Be advised and be wary of the fact that there are novices out there pretending to be qualified Hypnotists. Verify the credentials of those you consider. Only a certified hypnotist can assess your specific needs, explain the potential benefits and limitations of hypnosis for your condition, and guide you through the treatment process.
