Hypnosis has long been associated with the strange and mysterious, with sideshows and faith healers. The truth is that hypnosis isn’t the least bit mysterious or supernatural. In fact, you have been in a hypnotic state literally thousands of times. You didn’t notice it because it seemed such a natural state of mind.

Hypnosis is characterized by an increase ability to produce desirable changes in habit patterns, motivation, self image and life style. Alterations may be produced in physiological functions, such as pain, as well as in psychological functions such as stress and depression.

It is important for you to know that hypnosis is not in any way harmful and that the hypnotic subject is always in control. It is your choice to enter the trance state, and you can always choose to leave it.

Most hypnotherapy sessions require a light trance state to achieve the desired goals. The changes can make dramatic differences in your life style, success, and feelings of well-being.

Noticeable improvements in some IBS patients receiving hypnosis

*In a pair of studies, scientists randomly assigned 138 patients with IBS that did not respond to traditional treatments to either 12 sessions of hypnosis or to a “control” group. One study, which involved 90 patients, saw 38 percent of hypnosis patients responded to their treatment after three months, meaning symptom “scores” had fallen by at least 25 percent. That compared with just 11 percent of patients in the control group, who were only given advice on diet and relaxation techniques as their treatment.

In the second study involving 48 patients, a quarter of the hypnosis group responded to treatment, while just 13 percent of the control group responded. That difference, said researchers, was not statistically significant, meaning the results could have been due to chance. Still, hypnosis patients did have a larger average drop in symptoms of bloating and pain.
