CES 2017: Forget the shrink with hypnotherapy app
A Danish company called HelloMind has a hypnotherapy app that claims to offer the perfect fix just a click away. Just download the HelloMind app and choose the area to work on, whether that's to get rid of a phobia or strengthen a certain aspect of your personality.
If you need immediate relief, you can get five minutes of complete relaxation. Press play for the soothing sounds of a hypnotherapist. Of course, plenty of people don't take hypnosis seriously to begin with, so why not do it on an app?
The treatment consists of 10 half-hour sessions. Each session is about $9, or just pay $13 per month. Henrik Hancke Nielsen, a partner at HelloMind, says many users have gone back for more treatment sessions.
The app launched in Denmark last August and is arriving in the US. It's one of the products being showcased at the CES tech show in Las Vegas.
