Hypnosis Works for Pain Control

The US Institute for the Study of Healthcare Organizations & Transactions has a study on the effectiveness of Hypnosis in Pain Management.

As you can see from their graph, Hypnosis achieved a higher level of pain reduction than Acupuncture, Morphine or the Placebo. Hypnosis not only helps to relieve pain but it helps to preserve the dignity and well-being of patients without the dependence on large amounts of prescription medications .

Remember, ALL medications have side effects and people develop a tolerance eventually leading to increased dosages and possible addiction.

The US National Institutes of Health recommends using hypnosis as a tool in pain management! 26 million Americans have frequent or persistent back pain and 50 million Americans are partially or fully disabled from some form of chronic pain?How about the fact that 1 out of every 6 Americans have a form of painful arthritis.

The evidence suggests that, per capita, the  situation is much the same in Australia.
