Welcome to Basel 2020

Building Bridges and Travelling Cross Roads

Dear Colleagues, 
Dear Friends

Hypnosis bridges mind and body while recognizing their connections and their crossroads. The individual, in the center of medical hypnosis, is accompanied by a specialized therapist dedicated to helping the patient change from hurting to healthy.

Research through neuro-science is making important strides to uncover the relationships between brain and body while answering these questions: “What happens during therapy? What new options will develop from these discoveries?
Basel Switzerland, an old yet modern University city is a well-adapted venue to share this wealth of knowledge in hypnosis.

We are assured that you will feel at home in Switzerland, which by its central location bridges east and west, as well as north and south. It connects German, French, Italian, Romansh languages and ways. The Swiss constitution and its government place the good of the individual at the center of its system bridging differences and sameness.

During your participation, hypnotherapists will share with you in workshops and by presentations in English, French or German language. The capturing of their methods and ways, we hope, will facilitate your own creativity. Whether by the acquisition of new approaches or the consolidation of your methods, your patients will most certainly benefit from your participation. But, also you as a therapist should make a positive jump in your own professional enthusiasm and satisfaction. Likewise the updates from researchers should keep you abreast of the latest discoveries. The more inventive among us will be invited to stimulate your imagination when exploring the applications and integration of hypnosis in the medical world of tomorrow.

Furthermore, the modern and well-equipped Congress Center in Basel is located in the heart of the city. The architectural design provides zones for catering, for moments of relaxation and spaces to meet and to share with other participants. Adequate parking facilities are near by. The well-developed public transportation to and from greater Basel, which includes neighboring Germany and France, provides excellent mobility towards the numerous surrounding hotels with prices amenable to all budgets.
