Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic practice that uses guided hypnosis to help a client reach a trance-like state (many of us have already done this while driving somewhere and forgetting the actual drive to our destination) of focus and concentration. The American Psychological Association and American Medical Association have recognized hypnotherapy as a valid procedure since 1958. The National Institute of Health (NIH) has recommended it as a treatment for chronic pain since 1995.
