The term psychosomatic describes the so-called soul-body problem. This refers to the connection between physical and mental complaints. Thus, psychological problems can lead to physical complaints and, conversely, physical complaints can also lead to psychological ones. People suffering from depression often go to the family doctor because they have physical complaints, such as headaches, stomach pains or back pain. If organic causes are excluded from the symptoms, it can be assumed that the pain is psychosomatic. Repressed experiences, experiences that have not been processed, or even stress and strain can show up on the surface through physical complaints. Psychosomatic is an important field of application of hypnosis. Through hypnosis, imbalances can be redressed by working with the subconscious. Thus, psychosomatic complaints can be treated with hypnosis.
