What is Hypnotherapy?






Hypnotherapy in radiotherapy patients: a randomized trial


PURPOSE: To determine whether hypnotherapy reduces anxiety and improves the quality of life in cancer patients undergoing curative radiotherapy (RT). METHODS AND MATERIALS: After providing written informed consent, 69 patients were randomized between standard curative RT alone (36 controls) and RT plus hypnotherapy (33 patients). Patients in the hypnotherapy group received hypnotherapy at the intake, before RT simulation, before the first RT session, and halfway between the RT course. Anxiety was evaluated by the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory DY-1 form at six points. Quality of life was measured by the Rand Medical Outcomes Study 36-item Health Survey (SF-36) at five points. Additionally, patients answered a questionnaire to evaluate their experience and the possible benefits of this research project. RESULTS: No statistically significant difference was found in anxiety or quality of life between the hypnotherapy and control groups. However, significantly more patients in the hypnotherapy group indicated an improvement in mental (p <0.05) and overall (p <0.05) well-being. CONCLUSION: Hypnotherapy did not reduce anxiety or improve the quality of life in cancer patients undergoing curative RT. The absence of statistically significant differences between the two groups contrasts with the hypnotherapy patients' own sense of mental and overall well-being, which was significantly greater after hypnotherapy. It cannot be excluded that the extra attention by the hypnotherapist was responsible for this beneficial effect in the hypnotherapy group. An attention-only control group would be necessary to control for this effect.

Improving your performance

Improving the performance in any given area most likely requires that you stop bad habits and strengthen the necessary parts of your brain and body. When someone is performing poorly they should realize that actually what they're doing is doing their poor performance at an expert level. This proves that they have the ability to achieve mastery. However, they are merely doing it in the wrong way. Getting rid of an expertly performed bad habit is not easy. In fact the brain and body will resist any efforts to change. Additionally, such efforts will most certainly strengthen the hold that...

Unleashing your Inner Mastery

Let’s face it. More than likely you have the same brain and same physiology as the most prodigious genius and top Olympic athlete. Yes, an inventory of your brain sectors, organs, and muscle groups show a surprising similarity to the top performers. Yet, why haven’t you achieved such greatness? This is a question that I’ve asked for several decades. It surprised me what I discovered.

Our first obstacle is that each and every one of us is programmed to be mediocre. Think about this for a moment. Back when you were in school, two groups of people were often criticized. These were the...

Self-Help Transformation or Clinical Intervention

Let’s face it. Each and everyday we are faced with challenges to which we must adapt. They may involve threats to our survival, obstacles standing in the way of our desire to become happier, or even represent an urge to take one’s musicianship or golf game to the next level. For most of us, our ability to make minor adjustments to our way of thinking does not present much of a difficulty. For others, no matter how hard we try, we just don’t seem to make much progress. In fact, often our efforts seem to make matters worse. A common question that I often hear is whether self-help efforts...
