What is the difference between Hypnotherapy and stage hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy is a gentle, safe, and efficient tool with distinct ethical boundaries employed by a Certified Hypnotherapist who has had at least 100 hours of combined education, experience, and supervision. It has the specific purpose of helping a client reach their mental, emotional, and/or physical goals.

Stage hypnosis is usually a rather abrupt process used for the purpose of entertainment.
