Are there any side effects to medical hypnosis?

PLEASE NOTE: I will be out of the office and will return on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2024. During this time, you may still request a consultation, however I may not be able to get back you as quickly as I’d like. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I look forward to speaking with you soon. 

No. None.

However, it is not right for everyone. The patient must be motivated to learn and change their current position.

Although medical hypnosis has no negative side effects, Dr. Lazarus will often joke with his patients, telling them that there are 2 main side effects:

  1. Increased self-esteem
  2. Increased self-confidence

He then tells them that if they are willing to accept those, he is happy to work with them!
