Benefits of Hypnotism

As more and more studies show hypnosis helps with common health problems, interest in the technique is greater than ever. Hypnosis is now available at some of the most respected hospitals in the world, and is routinely taught in over a third of accredited schools of medicine and psychology.
Smoking Cessation

Hypnosis has long been appreciated as an effective way to overcome unwanted habits. Studies show that a multi-session approach, combined with training in self-hypnosis increases your chances of long-term success. Those who use hypnosis to stop smoking also report a higher rate of satisfaction with the process, compared to other methods.
Weight Loss

One of the advantages of using hypnosis for weight loss is that it's a brief and pleasant process, with often long-lasting results. Studies have shown that incorporating hypnosis into a weight loss program can double your weight loss. Researchers also found that participants who use hypnosis are able to maintain their weight loss longer.
Sleep Problems

Hypnosis is a safe, side-effect free way to improve troubled sleep. In a study measuring brain wave activity, researchers found that hypnosis not only boosts deep sleep quantity, it also improves deep sleep quality. Study participants slept 67% more and saw their "deep sleep" time rise by roughly 80% after hypnosis.
Fertility / IVF Success

Hypnosis is a non-invasive technique that is proven to enhance fertility. Research shows that stress can interfere with and undermine the body's reproduction function, and that relieving stress greatly enhances fertility. According to studies, hypnosis can double IVF success rates and increase chances of natural conception by 50%.
Chronic Pain

Studies confirm that hypnosis is highly effective for reducing pain intensity in individuals with chronic pain. Evidence also shows that hypnotic intervention can enhance the effectiveness of other treatments. The conclusions are consistent: compared to standard care, hypnosis is more effective for reducing chronic pain and the benefits are often long-lasting.
Symptoms of Menopause

Of all complementary approaches, hypnosis is uniquely effective in alleviating symptoms of menopause. A report commissioned by the North American Menopause Society showed hypnosis significantly decreases hot flashes in both frequency and severity, and reduces hot flashes by as much as 74%.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Hypnosis is one of the most successful approaches for IBS, with a response rate of 80% or better in most published studies. Hypnosis has also proven to help people who fail to see improvements with other methods. According to research, those who improve with hypnosis can look forward to years of reduced bowel symptoms.
Relax Before a Medical Procedure

Feeling stressed or worried can negatively impact the outcome of a medical procedure. Hypnosis offers a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical way to tap into the mind's natural ability to reduce stress and pain. In clinical trials, those who received hypnosis reported far less pain and anxiety, suffered fewer complications, and recovered faster than those who received standard care alone. A 2006 study from Yale University School of Medicine concluded that "hypnosis significantly alleviates preoperative anxiety."
Stress-Related Skin Problems

Numerous studies have demonstrated hypnosis is especially helpful when dealing with stress-related skin problems (acne, psoriasis, eczema and hives). Hypnosis has also been shown to decrease pain and inflammation, and to limit behaviors such as scratching, skin picking and hair pulling.
