Past-life regression therapy (PLRT) is a technique of hypnotherapy whereby the patient is regressed back in time to a former lifetime. It is recognized by the mental health profession as an effective and important modality of treatment.
There are instances where methods of traditional psychotherapy are not able to bring about the desired change or removal of the symptom. Past hurts, losses, phobias, fears, compulsions, and even physical pains, for example, may have no relevance to something in the present life; instead there may be a connection to events in a prior lifetime. Recall of a past-life may assist in the ‘letting go’ of the symptom and result in subsequent healing. It is generally recommended that one’s current life be examined before PLRT is attempted.
