In 1958 the American Medical Association endorsed hypnosis and hypnotherapy as a legitimate treatment tool for pain, stress and relaxation management, weight loss, smoking cessation, childbirth, preparing for surgery, as well as overcoming fears of medical, dental and other hospital procedures. It is natural and free of side effects, when conducted by a certified competent practitioner the results are long lasting and often permanent.
Guidelines of Practice:
The National Guild of Hypnotists has ethical guidelines which all members must adhere to. Even though NGH Hypnotists do not require professional medical or mental health credentials a great number of their members are credentialed in health care professions as is Mr. Eslinger. Non physician hypnotists do not diagnose disease, but do use hypnosis as an adjunct to conventional medical or mental health interventions. Hypnotists use a unique non-diagnostic language with clients in order to help them achieve the healthy change they desire.
