Consider Hypnosis

The Morning Call (Allentown, PA), October 16, 2007

The Mayo Clinic Guide to Alternative Medicine 2007 lists hypnosis as one of the top 10 alternative therapies.
Hypnosis is a technique that is based on the mind-body connection and uses the power of suggestion and trance states to bring about change.  It has been used successfully for smoking cessation, weight loss, anxiety reduction, and pain control (e.g., headaches, childbirth, and dental procedures).
There are many misconceptions about hypnosis.  A big one is that you are being controlled by the hypnotist and you lose your free will.  In actuality, you cannot be made to do anything you don’t want to do.
Due to the skill that is needed with this procedure and the controversies that exist, such as trying to uncover memories, it is best to locate a trained professional.
