Review of Sammy the Elephant and Mr. Camel

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter (Summer 2006 issue) reviewed Sammy the Elephant and Mr. Camel by Joyce Mills, PhD.

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter

"Dr. Mills' CDs come as a set of two—one for children that contains metaphoric trancework to retrieve resources, and the other for parents to use for fostering their own mental health. The format takes into account the fact that any concern affecting a child naturally also affects the entire system, so the second CD addresses parents' needs for managing their stress and emotional reactions to their child's situation. The parents' CD is fairly brief—about 10 minutes long—and contains an induction followed by guided imagery that serves as a "Mini Mind Vacation."

To the untrained listener, the children's CD is just like any other bedtime story one might tell a child, but, those schooled in Ericksonian trancework will quickly come to appreciate...continue reading »

Nick Usborne Recommends Productivity Engineering

Productivity Engineering was "test driven" and reviewed by award winning writer, Nick Usborne.

Here's his take on the program:

"Buy a hypnosis CD program? Will that really help me get more work done? Can it improve my work performance?"

I know, this is a little off the beaten path when compared to the usual courses and services I review. So first, to make real sense of this, let me tell you why I decided to go through and review this program.

I would like to be more productive, consistently

As someone who works from a home office, I am very aware of a huge variation in how productive I am. Some days and weeks I am extremely productive. My work performance is excellent. At the end of each day I'll sit back and wonder how I managed to get so much done.

But for each day or week that I am wildly productive, there are other days and weeks when it feels like I'm trying to run through treacle. I find it almost impossible to fight my way through my work. When I feel like that, it's frustrating, depressing...continue reading »

Hypnosis for Weight Loss: Does It Work?

Yes, research demonstrates a significant effect when using hypnosis for weight loss.

In a 9-week study of two weight management groups (one using hypnosis and one not using hypnosis), the hypnosis group continued to get results in the two-year follow-up, while the non-hypnosis group showed no further results (Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1985).

In a study of 60 women separated into hypnosis versus non-hypnosis groups, the groups using hypnosis lost an average of 17 pounds...continue reading »

Hypnosis and Pain Reduction: The Latest Research

Although hypnosis has been shown to reduce pain perception, it is not clear how the technique works. Identifying a sound, scientific explanation for hypnosis' effect might increase acceptance and use of this safe pain-reduction option in clinical settings.

Researchers at the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and the Technical University of Aachen, Germany, used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to find out if hypnosis alters brain activity in a way that might explain pain reduction. The results are reported in the November-December 2004 issue of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine.

The researchers found that volunteers under hypnosis experienced significant pain reduction in response to painful heat. They also had a distinctly different pattern of brain activity compared to when they were not hypnotized...continue reading »

Hypnosis and Headache Pain: The Research

In a study conducted by Anderson (1975), migraine patients treated with hypnosis had a significant reduction in the number of attacks and in their severity compared to a control group who were treated with traditional medications. The difference did not become statistically significant until the second six-month follow-up period. In addition, at the end of one year, the number of patients in the hypnosis group who had experienced no headaches for over three months was significantly higher.

In a controlled trial conducted by Olness (1987), self-hypnosis was shown to be significantly more effective than either propranolol or placebo...continue reading »

How Effective Is Hypnosis in Relieving Pain?

Hypnosis is a state of altered awareness in which we can become absorbed in more relaxing thoughts, ideas, images and feelings, and more easily distracted from negative or painful ones. Many people who benefit from hypnosis respond well to suggestions about feeling less pain, more comfort, increased energy, better sleep, and having rapid healing outcomes. Only about 10-20% of the general population does not receive good results from hypnosis; this group may benefit more from biofeedback and other methods.

There are many published, well-controlled research studies that focus on the use of hypnosis with surgery. In a recent review of 18 of these studies1, the overall result was that most patients treated with hypnosis have moderate to significantly better surgical outcomes...continue reading »

Hypnosis and Faith

We receive questions about hypnosis and faith regularly, and would like to attempt to address the issue.

Before we start, here are two points of clarification:

  • First, we want to be clear that all of the following discussions refer only to the programs our therapists create at The Hypnosis Network. Other hypnosis publishers may not follow the same standards for their audio CD programs. We cannot vouch for their programs.
  • Second, we do not claim to be experts in matters of faith. Our office staff and therapists consist of people from multiple faiths, and we are not involved in issues of faith as a company unit.

Program Content

We produce self-hypnosis audio CD programs that address particular issues for which hypnosis has been shown via multiple academic research studies to be an effective treatment...continue reading »
