More and more everyday Psychologists, Doctors, and Psychiatrists are digging into facts about how and why hypnosis creates results. Our vast subconscious mind is powerful and robust, and its connection to accelerating the healing of our body is studied worldwide. There are literally dozens and dozens of articles similar to the one below. Just do a Google Search on Hypnotherapy Research.

In a 2011 American Psychological Association article, Brendan L. Smith says:

“The first task for many psychologists who use hypnosis is telling patients what hypnosis is and what it isn’t.”

“Even though stage hypnotists and TV shows have damaged the public image of hypnosis, a growing body of scientific research supports its benefits in treating a wide range of conditions, including pain, depression, anxiety and phobias.”

“Hypnosis can create a highly relaxed state of inner concentration and focused attention for patients, and the technique can be tailored to different treatment methods, such as cognitive- behavioral therapy. Patients also can become more empowered by learning to hypnotize themselves at home to reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, or alleviate some symptoms of depression or anxiety.”

“Hypnosis has been used for centuries for pain control, including during the Civil War when Army surgeons hypnotized injured soldiers before amputations. Recent studies have confirmed its effectiveness as a tool to reduce pain. Among the leading researchers in the field is Guy H. Montgomery, PhD, a psychologist who has conducted extensive research on hypnosis and pain management at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he is director of the Integrative Behavioral Medicine Program.”

A November 2014 Google search of “Hypnosis” produced 23.5 million results. For the period of time between January 2009 and Jan 2014, Google search trends (which shows how often a particular term is queried) indicates consistent search activity for the Word “Hypnosis.” In other words Google searches for Hypnosis are neither trailing off or increasing. Compare this with the Term “Psychiatry” on thee same day which produced 51.8 million results, however the Google search trends show a 30% decline for the same January to January time period.

The same statistics for the search term “Psychology” show 230 million results, and for the same January to January period, there is a decline of 5% in Google searches. These statistics show us that interest in Hypnosis as a “searched term” has maintained consistency over the past 5 years while Psychiatry and Psychology have gone down.

Please note that these numbers are not a qualitative measure of the relative treatment modalities, simply internet search trend data from Google Analytics.

The field of Hypnotherapy Research is wide open. It will continue to expand as more is truly understood about the “mind body connection”
