Why Celebrities Use Hypnosis

Now and again you see articles about celebrities going for hypnotherapy. And for many people this may come as a surprise. Hypnotherapy has been recognized as a totally natural thing, just as any other natural healing such as meditation, reiki or yoga. Due to the significant and permanent advantages of hypnotherapy, it has already gained huge popularity amongst celebrities as well.

Those celebrities visit their hypnotherapists for a variety of reasons. Either it can be to earn a sporting edge, give up smoking, overcome a phobia or to lose weight etc. Hypnotherapy is now more popular among the celebrities than any time before. Whether they are athletes, movie stars, TV actors, musicians etc, celebrities from all fields have been known to choose hypnosis.

It surely gives a boost to the hypnotherapy business when celebrities disclose the positive results they received from it. Take the example of English recording artist Lily Allen, who has dropped her size from 12 to 8 with the help of hypnotherapy. Tiger Woods is one of the best golf players of all time, and he also received hypnotherapy treatments. Actually he credits his strong mental health to the years of hypnosis he got since he was a child. Steve Collins, another sports star has successfully used hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy has become a big part of many athletes because it can give them motivation, or make them immune to distractions, or to step up their mental strength.

Mel Gibson underwent hypnosis to help him deal with his problems, while Kevin Costner hired a private therapist to treat his phobia. Smoking is a big problem among celebrities, and because of all the stresses and controversies it becomes very difficult to beat the addiction. But a lot of celebrities have successfully been treated with hypnotherapy to get over it, Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Joel, Matt Damon and Drew Barrymore to name a few.

TV actress Tina Malone lost 6 stone in weight using only hypnotherapy. It helped her to alter her eating habits and allowed her to lose the weight. A good hypnotherapist will identify the root cause of the problem then assists to treat in accordance, like Lily Allen who dropped her size mostly by going to gym and not just altering her eating habits.

Richard Lee, the goalie of Brentford Football Club has also benefitted from hypnosis. Charlotte Church, a Welsh singer also quit smoking when she was pregnant with her children. You will discover so many celebrities who have tried hypnotherapy that it would certainly be much easier to list those celebrities who have not advantaged from it!

It shouldn't come to us as a shock that so many celebrities currently use hypnotherapy. It's surely not a new trend. People such as Mozart, Henry Ford, and Thomas Edison etc. all have been known to use hypnotherapy to resolve their problems. Despite the fact that it can be sometimes relatively expensive to hire a good hypnotherapist, it surely does not mean that only celebrities can afford it. It's actually an affordable therapy (especially given its speed, effect and the money it would save in the long run if you no longer smoke/eat/consume drugs etc any longer). The benefits of hypnosis are almost limitless and the effort is minimal, this is what has made hypnosis really popular both among celebrities and the rest of us.
