Medical hypnosis (SMSH/GHypS)

Hypnosis has been used as a therapy to treat mental, physical and psychosomatic disorders since time immemorial. Hypnosis can be seen as a special style of communication in the doctor-patient relationship, and one that focuses attention on empathy, creativity and suggestion.

For example, hypnosis can be used to manage anxiety and pain. It can also support medicinal treatment and reinforce psychotherapy.
