More and more medical settings are teaching their patients how to use hypnosis to take control of their symptoms. Hypnosis for pain control has been used for centuries but only recently has the medical community embraced hypnotherapy as a part of medical procedures. Hypnosis is not at all about giving up control or being out of control. Hypnosis is the ultimate display of control. Learn self-hypnosis and take control of your symptoms.

Using Hypnosis to Take Control of Your Symptoms

NY Times, April 15, 2011: Some critics find the research into mind-body therapies unconvincing, but their skepticism has not deterred patients. And there are researchers who say they believe that by helping patients feel in better control of their symptoms, hypnosis can reduce the need for medication and lower costs.

“Hypnosis is an effective and inexpensive way to manage medical care,” said Dr. David Spiegel, director of the Center on Stress and Health at Stanford University School of Medicine and a leading authority on hypnosis.

A study by radiologists at Harvard Medical School, published in 2000, found that patients who received hypnosis during surgery required less medication, had fewer complications and shorter procedures than patients who did not have hypnosis. In a follow-up study in 2002, the radiologists concluded that if every patient undergoing catheterization were to receive hypnosis, the cost savings would amount to $338 per patient.

“When patients are groggy from anesthesia drugs, it costs more to recover them,” said Dr. Elvira Lang, an associate professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School and a lead author of both studies. “Hypnosis calms patients.”

“People think hypnosis is about giving up control,” said Dr. Spiegel. “But it’s actually giving control back to the patients.”
