Medical Hypnosis is gaining credibility! The use of hypnosis is starting to be recognized, as complementary, within the medical field as a useful technique in the treatment of certain illnesses.
In 1996, an NIH Technology Assessment Panel confirmed hypnosis as an effective adjunct in alleviating pain. In July, 2001, Scientific American stated, "Though often denigrated as fakery or wishful thinking, hypnosis has been shown to be a real phenomenon with a variety of therapeutic uses especially in controlling pain."
The Wall Street Journal in the October 7th, 2003 issue stated, "Numerous scientific studies have emerged in recent years showing that the hypnotized mind can exert a real and powerful effect on the body."
In 2005, Harvard did a study regarding the use of pre-operative hypnosis to relieve anxiety and a similar study was done in 2007 at Mt. Sinai Hospital regarding the use of pre-operative hypnosis for breast biopsy patients in speeding up healing and reducing the amount of pain medication needed during and after surgery.
According to the Mayo Clinic:
"Who is hypnosis for?
