How many scientific studies have concluded that Hypnotism
is a highly effective treatment?
Many! Here are just a few:
Is Hypnotism accepted by the Medical and Psychological Communities?
Hypnotherapy has been approved by the medical and scientific establishment as far back as the 19th century (England). The American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Psychological Association (APA) first recognized hypnotism as a valid medical procedure in 1958. Since 1995, the National Institute of Health (NIH) has recommended hypnotism as a treatment for chronic pain. In 1961 the AMA Council on Mental Health recommended that medical students receive 144 hours of training in hypnosis over a 9- to 12- month period at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In 1960 the APA endorsed Hypnosis as a branch of Psychology.
