About OHA

Founded in Salem, Oregon, in 1995 the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association is a professional organization comprised of dedicated individuals committed to preserving professionalism in the field of hypnotherapy. We provide our members continuing education and an open forum for the free exchange of ideas, techniques, and occupational discussion concerning hypnotherapy.

Important OHA resources through the years have been the OHA Northwest newsletter, the official publication of the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association, and the OHA web site, the very first web site devoted exclusively to the promotion of hypnotherapy in Oregon.

The Oregon Hypnotherapy Association supports an exchange of ideas, association, mutual confidence and cooperation among its members.
