Advances in brain function imaging using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) scanning techniques have allowed us to see that hypnosis modulates activity in the anterior cingulate cortex, which links the limbic (emotions) and sensory cortical areas of the brain during hypnotic pain relief. This appears to allow sensations that would normally be experienced as painful to no longer have the suffering or negative emotions that would normally be associated with them.
A labour contraction, for example, can be felt as either the most terrifying and painful of sensations or a wonderfully fulfilling experience that tells the mother she is getting closer to her baby. These very different perceptions may be experienced despite the intensity of uterine contractions being identical. This is how hypnosis works, it doesn't control pain, it controls the perception of pain.
Do you want to lose weight while feeling inspired and confident? Do you want your results to last? If so, get hypnosis and strengthen your conviction to lose that weight.
Research studies have found hypnosis to be an effective weight loss tool. In one study, the results indicated that adding hypnosis increased weight loss by an average of 97%. Additionally, hypnosis increased the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral therapy for weight loss after treatment by over 146%, which means that hypnosis helped make the results last. (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1996). The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH), the largest U.S. organization for health and mental health care professionals using clinical hypnosis, endorses the use of hypnosis for weight loss.
