Hypnotherapy an effective treatment for gastric pain
126 patients in Manchester suffering from gastrointestinal disorders with pain in the abdomen (functional dyspepsia) were divided into three groups. For 16 weeks, one group received hypnotherapy, another received placebo medication, the third received medical treatment. The best results were achieved with hypnotherapy both in the short and longer term.
