Abstract

Hypnosis has existed since the beginning of humankind, and is a part of everyday life. It is a valuable addition to the methods and techniques available to all health care-providers, as well as a safe and uncomplicated method used to enhance patient health care. It is simply a state of complete physical and mental relaxation which produces an altered state of consciousness acceptable to suggestions. It is characterized by an increased ability to produce desirable changes in habit patterns, motivation, self-image, lifestyle, and personal health.
