The Ledger: Hypnosis may accelerate recovery from serious injuries and surgeries according to a Harvard Medical School study. Fractured bones of patients who received regular hypnotherapy were fusing at an advanced rate. Six weeks after the break, their bones appeared to have been healing for 8 1/2 weeks. A separate Harvard study also found that incision wounds of women who were hypnotized before and after breast-reduction surgery healed more quickly and these women had less pain. What the mind can conceive, the body will achieve!
