It's widely accepted

Hypnosis is now routinely taught in over a third of accredited schools of medicine and in Ph.D. and diploma programs in both counseling and clinical psychology.1

It's widely approved

Hypnosis has been approved by the American Psychological Association, the American Medical Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the World Federation of Mental Health.1
