Weight Loss

As studies have shown, hypnosis not only helps participants lose weight, but it helps them keep it off, which is arguably the harder of the two feats. These promising studies indicate that hypnosis, in conjunction with lifestyle changes, could be a major factor in sustained and lasting weight loss. MS Faith Allison lauds the real potential of hypnosis in weight loss efforts, noting that in her 1996 study on obese participants, “researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy, such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self-monitoring or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of the non hypnosis, and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended.” If anything, this link between hypnosis and prolonged weight loss and weight management suggests that those who are able to master their mind are ultimately the most successful in weight management ventures.
