What is Hypnotherapy?






Guided Imagery and Breast Cancer


Researchers at Oregon Health and Science University study the effect of guided imagery on immune function in patients being treated for Stage I or II breast cancer.


Researchers at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon, studied the effect of hypnotic guided imagery on immune function and psychological parameters in patients being treated for Stage I or II breast cancer. Psychological profiles, natural killer (NK) cell number and activity were measured at baseline, after the 8-week imagery training program, and again at the 3-month follow-up.

There were significant increases in improvement in depression (P<.04) and an increase in absolute number of NK cells, but these were not maintained at the 3-month follow-up. Hypnotic-guided imagery did cause some transient changes in psychological well-being and immune parameters. However, these changes were not retained after the treatment ended.

The study concludes that there is a role for this method as an adjuvant therapy. [Ed note: perhaps the imagery practice needs to be continued as an ongoing part of daily life in order to maintain its benefits on psychological well being and NK activity.]

Women's health and hypnosis

Very early in my study of hypnotherapy I was required to focus on many issues of women's health as relates to my field. I became interested in the number of reproductive-related issues that can be affected by a woman's mental state. There are a high number of researchers who had looked into how stress affects various issues regarding a woman's health. As way too many in the medical field considered hypnosis primarily as a stress reduction tool, they were more than willing to look at the relationship between hypnosis and woman's health. Over the years there has been more interest in looking at...

What is TMJ?

TMJ is the acronym for temporomandibular joint. Frequently people say that they have TMJ. However, what they actually mean is that they have TMD, which means temporomandibular disorder. The TMJ is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to temporal bone of the skull. TMD occurs when there are problems with the jaw, jaw joint, and the surrounding muscles. TMD can occur due to numerous causes. These include accidents, clinching or grinding the teeth, arthritis, or stress. While the use of hypnotherapy normally focuses on stress alleviation, it should not be ruled out as part of the...

All About Psychology

Essentially, psychology is the study of the mind. More accurately the word means the body of knowledge about the mind. Current textbooks, however, describe it as the “science of the mind.” This is despite the fact that many practitioners of the field take a rather idealistic, unscientific approach. The field of psychology can trace its roots back to Wilhelm Maximilian Wundt, a German whose life spanned the previous two centuries.
