Is Hypnosis Dangerous?

Many, many doctors and psychologists state that there are no dangers involved with hypnosis-- only in being ignorant of it.

Dr. David Cheek, M.D., a noted authority writes:

"We can do more harm with ignorance of hypnotism than we could ever do by using hypnosis and suggestion constructively"


Dr. William S. Kroger, author of "Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis," states:

"Platonof, an associate of Pavlov, who used hypnosis over fifty years on over fifty-thousand cases, reports as follows: 'We have never observed any harmful influences on the patient which could be ascribed to the method of hypno-suggestion therapy, or a tendency toward the development of unstable personality, weakening of the will, or pathological urge for hypnosis."


As stated in "The Psychology of Mental Health," Dr. Louie P. Thorpe, Professor Emeritus, University of Southern California, writes:

"Hypnotism is a natural phenomena, and there are no known deleterious effects from its use."


Leslie N. LeCron, Psychologist, states:

"As to self-induction, many thousands have learned it and I have yet to hear a report of any bad results of its use"


Andre M. Weitzenhoffer, Ph.D., a highly regarded authority in the field of mind science, writes:

"As far as it is known today, hypnosis per se is no more dangerous than natural sleep. There is no evidence that hypnosis in itself weakens the will, damages the nervous system or in any way adversely affects the physical or mental well being of individuals."

Something to consider...

Could it somehow be harmful if a person did not learn how to use their mind in an effective and powerful manner?

"As you think, so you are."
