There is convincing evidence that hypnotic procedures are effective in the management and relief of both acute and chronic pain and in assisting in the alleviation of pain, discomfort and stress due to medical and dental procedures and childbirth.

Hypnosis and the practice of self-hypnosis may significantly reduce anxiety, tension and stress in a manner similar to other relaxation and self-regulation procedures.  Likewise, hypnotic treatment may assist in insomnia in the same way as other relaxation methods.

There is encouraging evidence demonstrating the beneficial effects of hypnotherapeutic procedures in alleviating the symptoms of a range of complaints that fall under the heading 'psychosomatic illness'.  These include tension headaches and migraine; asthma; gastro-intestinal complaints such as irritable bowel syndrome; warts and possibly other skin complaints such as eczema, psoriasis and urticaria. 

There is evidence from several studies that (hypnosis') inclusion in a weight reduction programme may significantly enhance outcome.              British Psychological Society  2001
