Are there people who should not be hypnotized?
Medical doctors and mental health professionals may indicate that hypnosis is contraindicated for a number of conditions, including:
Schizophrenia and other mental health disorders. Developmental disabilities. Use of certain drugs. Ongoing psychiatric treatment.
Although hypnosis has seen some amazing results over a wide spectrum of conditions, hypnotherapy is generally an adjunct therapy and is not a substitute for medical or psychiatric care.
