sciencedaily1.gifIt is always great when I can find studies like this to share with you. The ScienceDaily.com website, a highly respected source for medical news, reports that “People who used self-hypnotic relaxation techniques during surgery needed less pain medication, left the operating room sooner, and had more stable vital signs during the operation…” This research was conducted at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. This was a “large randomized clinical trial [which] included 241 people who underwent interventional radiology procedures…” This is just the kind of real empirical research than needs to be done in our profession, and I for one am very happy to see it. The article goes on to describe more precisely how the group benefited and the hypnotic procedures used. Here is a link, http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2000/04/000428073847.htm
