Hypnosis & Research

Hypnosis has come a long way.

It’s nothing like what you see in the movies. Just ask University of Washington School of Medicine, where ongoing studies under Mark Jensen, PhD, through grants from the National Institute of Health, show how effective hypnosis is for pain associated with Multiple Sclerosis. (The International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, volume 57(2):198)

Many people would be surprised to know that the American Psychological Association has an entire division dedicated to hypnosis/hypnotherapy. And studies with children who suffered post traumatic stress after terrorist attacks, indicate the Spiritual- Hypnosis assisted treatment was effective for children. (American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis 52:1, July 2009.)

Hypnosis delivers that inspiration to the conscious mind and then reinforces it through the subconscious mind. Whether you are motivating yourself to reach a goal, develop a new habit or let go of an old one, hypnosis helps by accelerating your learning ability. Learning new habits, behaviors and beliefs is the result of building new associations to replace the outdated ones, which is strengthened by repetition.

Medical Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy
Dr. Elvira Lang is the Chief of the Interventional Radiology Division and Director of the Nonpharmacologic Analgesia Program at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Dr. Lang is a pioneer of medical hypnosis in health care settings and incorporates medical hypnosis along with the traditional medical model. Medical Hypnosis works in support of the relationship between the mind and the body.

Dr. Lang has done extensive research on the effectiveness of hypnosis, particularly in surgical settings. Once such study Adjunctive self-hypnotic relaxation for outpatient medical procedures: a prospective randomized trial with women undergoing large core breast biopsy  Pain. 2006 Dec 15;126(1-3):3-4. found that self hypnosis provided more powerful anxiety relief without undue cost.

A medical hypnotherapist may help a person feel more comfortable as they prepare for surgery or they may help a person increase the flow of endorphins to fight acute or chronic pain or even phantom pain. Medical Hypnosis helps prepare women for a more comfortable childbirth experience and  helps the body with IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, TMJ, and HTN. Research shows that hospital stays, healing time and use of medication decrease with the aid of Medical Hypnosis.
