Following scientific studies confirming the benefits of hypnosis, a large burns unit at Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) in Switzerland now use hypnosis on a daily basis to help patients recover from burns and wounds more quickly, decreasing the number of skin grafts necessary.
Hypnosis has been shown to reduce the doses of opiates and sedatives necessary during the recovery process as well as decreasing the time patients are kept in intensive care and saving the authorities an average of 19,000 Swiss francs per patient.
Hospitals in Romandy are now set to lead the way by making hypnosis available for more patients. Psychiatrist Eric Bonvin, who is claims to be an expert in hypnosis, explains to his patients what goes on in the brain and how hypnosis activates the areas connected to the imagination Dr Bonvin explained, 'hypnosis has a similar effect to morphine, acting on areas of pain perception that alter this perception and even get rid of it entirely'.
At Hypnotic World we have a number of pain management scripts, including achieving anaesthesia, anxiety reduction and dissociation techniques which are the amongst routes taken in pain management.
