Hypnosis For Healing
The Wall Street Journal (p33) explores the benefits of hypnosis as a therapeutic aid for some patients.
The paper acknowledges: “The mechanism may be similar to the placebo effect- in which patients’ expectations play a major role in how they feel. Hypnosis, in turn, can help patients adjust those expectations to minimise pain, fear and disability.”
Even so the paper says: “Scientific evidence is mounting that hypnosis can be effective in a variety of medical situations, from easing migraine headaches to lowering blood pressure, controlling asthma attacks, minimising hot flushes and diminishing side effects from chemotherapy.
“Last week, two studies from Sweden found that one hour a week of hypnotherapy for 12 weeks eased symptoms of irritable-bowel syndrome in 40% of patients (compared with 12% in a control group) and that the positive effects can last as long as seven years.”
