During the past 10 years,hypnotherapy in nyc has slipped quietly into mainstream medicine -- helping people quit smoking, even cut back or stop using pain and anxiety medications.There's good research backing it up. But many people don't really understand what hypnosis is all about.Marc Oster, PsyD, a Chicago psychologist, relies on self-hypnosis when he gets dental work done. "I get novacaine, just like other patients, but I don't need as much of it because I'm under hypnosis. Afterward, I can go back to work for a full day. When the novacaine wears off, I don't have the pain, the jaw ache, or the headache that other people have," he tells WebMD.Hypnosis is merely a tool,a technique to tap into the subconscious, says Oster, who heads the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
Thank you for your comment. Excellent advice. I don't mind dentists either. As a matter of fact, I was so relaxed in the chair one time (shortly after having my baby) that I fell asleep! Kind regards. Mg
