Does Hypnosis Really Work?

At last, it’s official.

Hypnosis really does work – and it has an impact on the brain which can be measured scientifically, according to one of America’s leading psychiatrists.

David Spiegel, from Stanford University, told the prestigious American Association for the Advancement of Science that he had scanned the brains of volunteers who were told they were looking at coloured objects when, in fact, they were black and white.

A scan showing areas of the brain used to register colour highlighted increased blood flow, indicating that the volunteers genuinely ‘saw’ colours, as they had been told they would.

‘This is scientific evidence that something happens in the brain when people are hypnotised that doesn’t happen ordinarily,’ Mr Spiegel told delegates.

He added that there were ‘tremendous medical implications’ and envisaged people being able to manage their own pain and anxiety, which most of us realise is completely possible!

Well, I am relieved to know that the clients I have seen over the years were not just putting it on to please me (as if they would). More importantly, I am please to know that those who have come to me with all manner of fears and phobias were genuinely cured.

I am delighted that this research confirms what professional hypnotherapists, such as myself, who have been successfully using hypnosis, have known all along – hypnosis has a genuine effect on the functioning of the mind, as well as the body.
