Dr. Julius Grinker states, "The so-called dangers from hypnosis are imaginary. Although I have hypnotized many hundreds of patients, I have never seen any ill effects from its use."
Dr. David Cheek, M.D., who has vast experience in the field writes, "We can do more harm with ignorance of hypnotism than we can ever do by intelligently using hypnosis and suggestion constructively."
Psychologist Rafael Rhodes in his book "Therapy Through Hypnosis" writes "Hypnotism is absolutely safe. There is no known case on record of harmful results from its therapeutic use."
In his book, "Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis," Dr. William S. Kroger 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 any tendency toward the development of unstable personality, weakening of the will, or pathological urge for hypnosis. "Dr. Louie P. Thorpe, Professor Emeritus, University of Southern California, in his book "The Psychology of Mental Health," writes, "Hypnotism is a natural phenomena, and there are no known deleterious effects from its use."
Leslie N. LeCron, psychologist and authority on hypnosis, 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 respected authority in the field of hypnotism 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 mental and physical well-being of individuals."
|The instructions presented are from the personal collections and writing library of Mr. Robert E. Cutter, who died December 13, 2001, while in the process of completing the transfer of his work to the internet. These are offered as educational instruction only. The purpose of this instruction is the effective learning and use of hypnotic techniques for vocational or avocational self-improvement. This instruction is not offered as a substitute for, nor as a supplement to, any form of therapy concerned with physical, mental, nervous or emotional illness. Robert E. Cutter served as web consultant for American Psychotherapy and Medical Hypnosis Association for three years. His hypnosis education came through the training he provided at a school he owned in the 1950's in Los Angeles, California, along with his wife who preceded him in death in 1980. Robert Cutter was not a psychologist and did not practice psychotherapy, but his interest in hypnosis motivated him to provide free resources materials for others who wanted to learn to use the power of their minds to improve well being and health-related issues.|
