Alternative medicine has been around for thousands of years, probably even older than all the traditional methods we know and use today to address the common ailments we get every now and then, which has evolved into modern methods complimented by the technology that has created newer ways for health and advanced medical practices. Despite this modernization, alternative medicine is still widely used and patronized in many corners of the world, proving its effectivity in a wide range of illnesses, and continue to be useful for a lot of people who find modern medicine too invasive at times.

Hypnotherapy, one of the most popular alternative method in medicine today, is perhaps the least invasive of all, as it only works into one's subconscious mind to facilitate a psychological change for the better, creating new responses and thoughts that help patients cope properly with their ordeal. Although it has been commonly used to address psychological issues like trauma, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, hypnotherapy has also been used to treat non psychological issues like sleeping problems, sexual problems, weight issues, teeth grinding, irritable bowel syndrome, tinnitus and even some skin problems.

Quite commonly, however, hypnotherapy is used more in relieving psychological symptoms and problems and can be used as a therapy for low self esteem and for those with a negative self image. When it comes to coping with stress, hypnotherapy is also a useful method to help the mind focus better on positive and more productive thoughts more constantly. Hypnotic therapies are also now given in different forms aside from the traditional method, such as those incorporated with cognitive behavioral therapy, those that focuses on solutions, and curative hypnotherapy. Advanced hypnotherapy are also used to induce an anesthetic effect during medical procedures.
