MEDICAL SUPPORT HYPNOTHERAPY
"Any idea that exclusively occupies the mind becomes reality."
(Dr. Emile Coue')
Hypnosis has been utilized by the medical community as early as the late 1800's. Most remarkably by Dr. Emile Coue' who discovered that patients got better faster when their perception of their condition was shifted from "illness" to "health" and their treatment was praised. Coue' believed any idea exclusively occupying the mind becomes reality. Based on this discovery he opened his private villa in Nancy, France to all levels of patients, including the terminally ill, and enjoyed a documented 93% curative success rate.
Hypnotherapy is becoming a more recognized and utilized way for patients to manage their health and well being in conjunction with their current medical treatment plan.
