Hypnotherapy is highly effective for children with long-term abdominal pain or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), new research has found.

Researchers from St. Antonius Hospital in the Netherlands used hypnosis to relieve IBS pain in children aged 8 to 18.

During the three months of hypnotherapy sessions, children were taught about the mind’s ability to regulate bodily functions as well as learning general relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques.

My guest on my radio show, Hypnosis For Your Health (KKNW 1150 AMSeattle, Tuesdays at 3:00 PM) on December 4th & 18th is Melissa Roth and our topic is Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
