Let me tell you my personal experience, says Dr. Bunny Vreeland, Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I first experienced the amazing power of Hypnotherapy when I was 8 years old. My own father had surgery, without any anesthetic or medication, and after the surgery he got up, got into his car and drove himself home, without any pain or bleeding.
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique, shown to have incredible results, both on its own and when used as a complement to traditional medicine. In 1958, the American Medical Association approved a report on the medical use of hypnosis.Â In 1960 the American Psychological Association endorsed hypnosis as a branch of psychology.
The American Medical Association, American Psychiatric Association and the British Medical Association studies have shown that hypnosis can be a valuable tool when dealing with a wide range of medical issues.
