More Hypnotherapy research planned

The Medical School Hypnosis Association plans to bring medical specialists and students together with hypnotherapists to conduct coordinated national trials of the effects of hypnotherapy. The first trials will examine the effect of hypnosis on stress reduction using standardised questionaires and measuring levels of stress hormones in trial participants. The Association believes it is time for clinical hypnosis to take its proper place in medicine. New Scientist 18 October 2008 p18
