Scientific study in Belgium shows the power of hypnosis in healthcare

Interesting article in the Telegraph yesterday (2 June 19) entitled….“Hypnotise older patients undergoing minor operations instead of using anaesthetics, study says” 

The research, involving surgeons at a hospital in Belgium, showed how hypnosis not only avoided the need for heavy sedation and its side effects, but also improved recovery times.  This finding echoes the findings of other scientific studies, for example use of hypnosis in treatment of cancer patients, about how of hypnosis can help patients to use the power of the unconscious mind for healing.
