In Search of Hypnosis explores the world of hypnosis and its validity in science. For years now, therapists, law enforcement professionals, and doctors have attempted to use hypnosis to help people. Though it is widely practiced, many doctors and scientists still do not believe in its benefits and its uses. This video discusses the ways hypnosis can be used to control involuntary body functions, as an aid in psychological therapy, and as an alternative to anesthesia. Most law enforcement professionals utilize hypnosis to help recall forgotten events. Today, some scientists believe hypnosis can even help with weight loss and overcoming nicotine addiction.
