It is hardly surprising that the complete mental and physical relaxation that can be achieved in the hypnotic state can often benefit the patient to a considerable extent. (Hartland J. 1971)2
"There are, in fact, two things, science and opinion;
the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance"
Hippocrates of Coz, recognised as the father of medicine, circa 460BCE.3

In their book “Trick or Treatment?” (2009) Professor Edzard Ernst (Emeritus Professor, Exeter University, the world's first professor of complementary medicine) and Dr Simon Singh (Ph.D. in particle physics and producer on BBC's Tomorrow's World etc.,) note that the "prudent use of hypnotherapy can be helpful to some patients".4
The information provided on www.hypnotherapy-aberdeen.com (and
subsequent/ linked pages) is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient and their physician. It
is therefore wise to tell your doctor of any complementary treatment you are contemplating. In fact, in some cases Stan Gerard
may be reluctant to start treatment until you have done so.
Positive aspects of hypnosis include the production of a much more profound level of relaxation with a concomitant reduction in stress levels. Doctors are becoming increasingly supportive of hypnotherapy as an aid to better health. It is a non-invasive therapy, complementary to orthodox medicine.
