The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - One Day To Go Wedding Of The Decade -

HYPNOSIS has been iden­ti­fied as an ef­fec­tive drug-free treat­ment for chronic lower-back pain.

A study, pub­lished in jour­nal Pain, found when com­bined with pain man­age­ment ed­u­ca­tion classes, the in­ten­sity of the pain was re­duced with hypnosis.

But the Fac­ulty of Pain Medicine has cau­tioned pa­tients against rush­ing out to be hyp­no­tised, say­ing the jury is still out on the prac­tice for man­ag­ing chronic pain. Hypnosis can work by help­ing the brain to “calm the noise of pain”.
