If you have ever been totally engrossed while watching a spellbinding movie or reading a best-selling book — you’ve experienced hypnosis.
We all experience some form of hypnosis many times during the day. It is a time of intense focused concentration, totally free from any and all distractions.
Hypnosis is a proven tool to resolve concerns that lessen the quality of life for millions of people. With it you can stop smoking, lose weight, improve your confidence, manage fears and phobias, and relieve chronic pain, stress, and much more. Create change in all areas in your life, safe and naturally through hypnosis.
Today, numerous research studies — covering everything from weight loss and smoking to pain control, stress management and accelerated learning — conclude hypnosis is more effective and longer lasting than other methods to change behavior or responses to stress or pain.
Smoking, Alcohol or Drugs Abuse
With hypnotherapy you have the possibility to stop smoking, alcohol and drugs with a very high success rate.
A University of Iowa analysis reviewing the findings of more than 600 studies involving 72-thousand patients in the United States and Europe found hypnosis was three times more effective than the nicotine patch and 15 times more effective than willpower to quit smoking. 1
The University of Washington School of Medicine reported a 90.6% success rate for smoking cessation for 6 months to three years after hypnosis. 2
A study published in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship found smokers who had undergone hypnosis were more than twice as likely to remain smoke-free after two years. 3
Obesity and Weight Gain
A University of Connecticut analysis of 18 studies comparing cognitive behavioral therapy such as relaxation training, self-monitoring, or goal setting found people who received hypnosis lost more weight than 90% of people who had not tried hypnosis and they maintained the weight loss even after two years. 4
A study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology concluded a weight management program, which included hypnosis, was over 30 times more effective than a weight management program alone. The study evaluated patients for two years and found the patients who received hypnosis continued to lose weight, while the control group experienced little additional change. 5
Another study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found adding hypnosis to a weight loss program more than doubled its effectiveness and the benefits of hypnosis increased substantially over time. 6
Pain, Stress, Anxiety Management And Healing
Researchers at a Belgian university found more than 1,400 surgical patients, who received only local anesthesia supported by hypnosis, experienced faster recovery and greater post-operative comfort, including less anxiety, less pain and less need for pain medications. 7
A study reported in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management found the addition of hypnosis to a pain management program significantly reduced patient reports of intense pain. 8
Researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine who used randomized controlled studies found hypnosis has a reliable and significant impact on acute procedural pain and chronic pain conditions. Studies of central nervous system activity found evidence of actual physiological differences in how patients who had hypnosis responded to pain. 9
A separate study by scientists in Sweden also noted biological changes in the cerebral blood flow of pain patients supported by hypnosis.
Two studies from Harvard Medical School show hypnosis significantly reduces the time it takes to heal. One found that six weeks after an ankle fracture, those in the hypnosis group showed the equivalent of eight and a half weeks of healing. The other found that patients supported with hypnosis healed "significantly faster" than other patients after breast reduction surgery. 10
A study reported in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnotherapy found 261 veterans who were supported with hypnosis three to five times per week during treatment for drug and alcohol abuse reported the highest levels of self-esteem and serenity, and the least anger/impulsivity, compared to control groups. 11
