Are there any side effects to medical hypnosis?

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!
