Hypnosis might sound like a magic trick to some, but the therapy can be an effective pain reliever, a new review shows.
The review covered 85 studies that have tested hypnosis for easing "experimental models" of pain—that is, lab studies where brave volunteers agreed to be subjected to a painful stimulus.
And overall, researchers found, hypnosis and hypnotherapy eased the pain people felt by 29% to 42%, compared to doing nothing. People deemed to be highly "suggestible" were at the high end of that range, while moderately suggestible people were at the lower end.
