Both patients stated that they were aware of the procedure under hypnosis but described no pain and would be most willing to have the procedure done under hypnosis in the future. Hypnosis can be a useful method of preparing carefully selected patients for percutaneous liver biopsy. The Truth and the Hype of Hypnosis. Provides information about hypnosis. Uses research data to define hypnosis , discuss the relationship between hypnosis and memory, and present some possible benefits.
Includes a chart with some common misconceptions about hypnosis and the corresponding true statement. Objectives The effects of hypnosis on physiological gastrointestinal functions are incompletely understood, and it is unknown whether they are hypnosis -specific and gut-specific, or simply unspecific effects of relaxation. Design Sixty-two healthy female volunteers were randomly assigned to either a single session of hypnotic suggestion of ingesting an appetizing meal and an unappetizing meal, or to relax and concentrate on having an appetizing or unappetizing meal, while the electrogastrogram EGG was recorded.
At the end of the session, participants drank water until they felt full, in order to detect EGG-signal changes after ingestion of a true gastric load. During both conditions participants reported their subjective well-being, hunger and disgust at several time points. Results Imagining eating food induced subjective feelings of hunger and disgust as well as changes in the EGG similar to, but more pronounced than those seen with a real gastric water load during both hypnosis and relaxation conditions.
These effects were more pronounced when imagining an appetizing meal than with an unappetizing meal. There was no significant difference between the hypnosis and relaxation conditions. Conclusion Imagination with and without hypnosis exhibits similar changes in subjective and objective measures in response to imagining an appetizing and an unappetizing food, indicating high sensitivity but low specificity.
Experimental validation of waveform relaxation technique for power Figure Neurophysiology of hypnosis. We here review behavioral, neuroimaging and electrophysiological studies of hypnosis as a state, as well as hypnosis as a tool to modulate brain responses to painful stimulations.
Studies have shown that hypnotic processes modify internal self awareness as well as external environmental awareness brain networks. Brain mechanisms underlying the modulation of pain perception under hypnotic conditions involve cortical as well as subcortical areas including anterior cingulate and prefrontal cortices, basal ganglia and thalami. Combined with local anesthesia and conscious sedation in patients undergoing surgery, hypnosis is associated with improved peri- and postoperative comfort of patients and surgeons.
Finally, hypnosis can be considered as a useful analogue for simulating conversion and dissociation symptoms in healthy subjects, permitting better characterization of these challenging disorders by producing clinically similar experiences. The theory in developing virtual reality hypnosis was to apply three-dimensional, immersive, virtual reality technology to guide the patient through the same steps used when hypnosis is induced through an interpersonal process.
Virtual reality replaces many of the stimuli that the patients have to struggle to imagine via verbal cueing from the therapist. The purpose of this paper is to explore how virtual reality may be useful in delivering hypnosis , and to summarize the scientific literature to date.
We will also explore various theoretical and methodological issues that can guide future research. In spite of the encouraging scientific and clinical findings, hypnosis for analgesia is not universally used in medical centres. One reason for the slow acceptance is the extensive provider training required in order for hypnosis to be an effective pain management modality. Training in hypnosis is not commonly offered in medical schools or even psychology graduate curricula. Another reason is that hypnosis requires far more time and effort to administer than an analgesic pill or injection.
Hypnosis requires training, skill and patience to deliver in medical centres that are often fast-paced and highly demanding of clinician time. Finally, the attention and cognitive effort required for hypnosis may be more than patients in an acute care setting, who may be under the influence of opiates and benzodiazepines, are able to impart. It is a challenge to make hypnosis a standard part of care in this environment.
Hypnosis , hypnotizability and treatment. There is broad agreement that a phenomenon we call " hypnosis " exists. However, there is no generally accepted definition of hypnosis. A brief historical overview of the use of hypnosis in healing practices demonstrates how it evolved willy-nilly, and like Topsy, "just growed" into its current status in medicine, psychiatry, psychology and dentistry.
The mechanisms underlying hypnosis and how hypnosis differs from other cognitive states are almost totally unknown. With the exceptions of suggestions for pain control, current concepts of high, medium, low or non-hypnotizability do not reliably predict clinical outcomes for most medical, psychiatric or dental disorders. We do know that it is relatively easy to reliably evaluate hypnotizability, but other than choosing volunteers or subjects who will or will not exhibit traditional hypnotic phenomena, we rarely know what to do with that evaluation with actual clinical patients.
Four case studies, representative of many others, chosen retrospectively from a practice that spans 45 years, illustrate how traditional or modern hypnotizability assessment is irrelevant in the clinical setting. Although the four patients differed obviously and vastly in hypnotizability, they all benefited from the use of hypnosis. Reorienting Hypnosis Education. The legacy model of professional clinical hypnosis training presents a restrictive frame increasingly incompatible with our evolving understanding of psychobiology, health, and care.
Emerging science recognizes human experience not as disease and diagnosis, but as manifestations of individual, uniquely-endowed, adaptively self-regulating systems. Hypnosis is a particularly well-suited discipline for effecting beneficial change in this paradigm. Training in clinical hypnosis must progress from the current linearly-structured, diagnosis-based, reductionist model toward a more responsive, naturalistic, and client-centered curriculum in order to remain relevant and accessible to clinicians beginning to integrate it into their practices.
To that end, this article extends Hope and Sugarman's thesis of hypnosis as a skill set for systemic perturbation and reorientation to consider what those skills may be, the principles on which they are based, and how they may be taught. Parsing a clinical vignette reveals how incorporation of novelty and uncertainty results in less restrictive and more naturalistic hypnotic encounters that, in response to client-generated cues, elicit psychophysiological plasticity. This disruptive hypnosis education and training framework extends the utility and benefit of applied clinical hypnosis.
The effect of self- hypnosis on duration of labor and maternal and neonatal outcomes. METHODS: A hypnosis group receiving three 1-h lessons in self- hypnosis with additional audio-recordings to ease childbirth, a relaxation group receiving three 1-h lessons in various relaxation methods and mindfulness with audio-recordings for additional training, and a usual-care group receiving only Self Hypnosis for Elite Athletes.
A summary of the use of hypnosis in sport Morgan has suggested that the evidence in this area is equivocal, particularly in strength, endurance, and psychomotor tasks. However, some experiments have demonstrated the potential use of hypnosis.
This paper presents examples of two elite Australian athletes who achieve success using hypnosis or…. Hypnosis in nursing practice--emphasis on the "problem patient' who has pain--Part II. The program of treating burned patients with hypnosis was expanded to treating multi-problem and chronic pain patients on the same surgical unit at Denver General Hospital.
The majority of patients received some benefit. Many gained control over intense pain and many increased their sense of self-esteem and mastery. The behavioral problems diminished and the staff became reinterested and reinvolved with these very needy people.
Whether or not nurses elect to practice hypnosis , the principles are familiar and can be added to the repertory of nursing practice. Physical and psychological relaxation relieves distress and potentiates patients' comfort with or without pain medication. Communicate to the patient that what you are doing builds confidence and increases the probability that treatment wil be effective. Furthermore, recognizing imaginary capacities as powerful in promoting comfort adds an option for intervention not always considered or used by nurses.
Whether or not nurses describe what they do as " hypnosis ," the use of these techniques can be useful to their practice and to the patients in whom they attempt to alleviate suffering and promote comfort and growth.
Segmental dynamics in polymer melts by relaxation techniques and quasielastic neutron scattering. By using these techniques we have covered a wide timescale ranging from mesoscopic to macroscopic times s. For analyzing the experimental data we have developed a phenomenological procedure in the frequency domain based on the Havriliak-Negami relaxation function which in fact implies a Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts relaxation function in the time domain. The shape of the relaxation function is found to be similar for the different techniques used and independent of temperature and momentum transfer Q.
Moreover the characteristic relaxation times deduced from the fitting of the experimental data can also be described using only one Vogel-Fulcher functional form. We also outline a possible scenario for explaining this empirical correlation. The spirit of hypnosis : doing hypnosis versus being hypnotic. The spirit of hypnosis is reflected in the belief that people are more resourceful than they realize and through hypnosis can create meaningful possibilities. Thus, it is puzzling why hypnosis isn't better regarded.
Do we present as too internally conflicted to inspire others' confidence? Do we overstate the dangers of hypnosis and scare people away? Do we define hypnosis as such a unique approach that others don't see its relevance for their work? Self-exploration is important if we want to ensure we are not unwittingly adding to our image problems as a field. Beyond these considerations, the novel and spirited application of hypnosis in the context of captive elephant breeding is discussed, as is a personal acknowledgment of some of the pioneers who manifested the spirit of hypnosis.
Characteristics of patients with internal diseases who use relaxation techniques as a coping strategy. To assess sociodemographic, clinical, and psychological characteristics of patients with internal diseases who use relaxation techniques as a coping strategy.
Cross-sectional analysis among patients with internal diseases. Department of Internal and Integrative Medicine at an academic teaching hospital in Germany. Prior use of relaxation techniques e. Potential predictors of relaxation techniques use sociodemographic characteristics, health behavior, internal medicine diagnosis, general health status, mental health, satisfaction, and health locus of control were tested using multiple logistic regression analysis.
Of participants, Users were more likely to be middle-aged, female, well-educated, diagnosed with fibromyalgia, not smoking, not full-time employed, and not to have a good health status or high life satisfaction. A high internal health locus of control predicted relaxation techniques use.
Considering health locus of control. Jensen, Mark P. Evidence supports the efficacy of hypnotic treatments, but there remain many unresolved questions regarding how hypnosis produces its beneficial effects.
Most theoretical models focus more or less on biological, psychological, and social factors. This scoping review summarizes the empirical findings regarding the associations between specific factors in each of these domains and response to hypnosis.
The findings indicate that: 1 no single factor appears primary; 2 different factors may contribute more or less to outcomes in different subsets of individuals or for different conditions; and 3 comprehensive models of hypnosis that incorporate factors from all 3 domains may ultimately prove to be more useful than more restrictive models that focus on 1 or a very few factors.
The primary purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a hypnosis program with graduate students as a stress management strategy This study identified components of the program that were perceived as beneficial in relieving stress. Additionally, this study determined the amount of time necessary for benefits to be realized. Hypnosis and Education. Hypnosis is a state of mind which manifests a high degree of suggestibility.
Advertising, political campaigning, and religious contemplation are all areas in which hypotism is employed, usually without knowledge on the part of either the "hypnotist" or the subject. Because of its association with entertainment, magic, manipulation, and…. Neural mechanisms of hypnosis and meditation. Hypnosis has been an elusive concept for science for a long time. However, the explosive advances in neuroscience in the last few decades have provided a "bridge of understanding" between classical neurophysiological studies and psychophysiological studies.
These studies have shed new light on the neural basis of the hypnotic experience. Hypnosis research offers powerful techniques to isolate psychological processes in ways that allow their neural bases to be mapped. The Hypnotic Brain can serve as a way to tap neurocognitive questions and our cognitive assays can in turn shed new light on the neural bases of hypnosis. This cross-talk should enhance research and clinical applications.
An increasing body of evidence provides insight in the neural mechanisms of the Meditative Brain. Discrete meditative styles are likely to target different neurodynamic patterns. Recent findings emphasize increased attentional resources activating the attentional and salience networks with coherent perception. Cognitive and emotional equanimity gives rise to an eudaimonic state, made of calm, resilience and stability, readiness to express compassion and empathy, a main goal of Buddhist practices.
Structural changes in gray matter of key areas of the brain involved in learning processes suggest that these skills can be learned through practice. Hypnosis and Meditation represent two important, historical and influential landmarks of Western and Eastern civilization and culture respectively. Neuroscience has beginning to provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of both Hypnotic and Meditative Brain, outlining similarities but also differences between the two states and processes.
It is important not to view either the Eastern or the Western system as superior to the other. Cross-fertilization of the ancient Eastern meditation techniques. This article presents a critique on K. Amon and A. Research Report In this paper, a mathematical programming approach is presented for the assembly of ability tests measuring multiple traits.
The values of the variance functions of the estimators of the traits are minimized, while test specifications are met. The approach is based on Lagrangian relaxation techniques and provides good results for the two…. Managing children is a challenge that many dentists face. The use of hypnosis is generally an overlooked area, hence the need for this review.
This systematic review attempted to answer the question: What is the effectiveness of hypnosis with or without sedation for behaviour management of children who are receiving dental care in order to allow successful completion of treatment? Null hypothesis: Hypnosis has no effect on the outcome of dental treatment of children.
Electronic and manual searches were performed using controlled vocabulary and free text terms with no language restrictions. Date of last search: 11th June All children and adolescents aged up to 16 years of age. Children having any dental treatment, such as: simple restorative treatment with or without local anaesthetic, simple extractions or management of dental trauma.
Information regarding methods, participants, interventions, outcome measures and results were independently extracted, in duplicate, by two review authors. Authors of trials were contacted for details of randomisation and withdrawals and a quality assessment was carried out. The methodological quality of randomised controlled trials RCTs was assessed using the criteria described in the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions 5.
Only three RCTs with 69 participants fulfilled the inclusion criteria. Statistical analysis and meta-analysis were not possible due to insufficient number of studies. Although there are a considerable number of anecdotal accounts indicating the benefits of using hypnosis in paediatric dentistry, on the basis of the three studies meeting the inclusion criteria for this review there. The effects of music relaxation and muscle relaxation techniques on sleep quality and emotional measures among individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder.
PTSD is marked by recurrent nightmares typified by the recall of intrusive experiences and by extended disturbance throughout sleep. Individuals with PTSD respond poorly to drug treatments for insomnia. The disadvantages of drug treatment for insomnia underline the importance of non-pharmacological alternatives. Thus, the present study had three aims: first, to compare the efficiency of two relaxation techniques muscular relaxation and progressive music relaxation in alleviating insomnia among individuals with PTSD using both objective and subjective measures of sleep quality; second, to examine whether these two techniques have different effects on psychological indicators of PTSD, such as depression and anxiety; and finally, to examine how initial PTSD symptom severity and baseline emotional measures are related to the efficiency of these two relaxation methods.
Thirteen PTSD patients with no other major psychiatric or neurological disorders participated in the study. The study comprised one seven-day running-in, no-treatment period, followed by two seven-day experimental periods. The treatments constituted either music relaxation or muscle relaxation techniques at desired bedtime. These treatments were randomly assigned.
Analyses revealed a significant increase in objective and subjective sleep efficiency and a significant reduction in depression level following music relaxation. Moreover, following music. Research on hypnosis as an adjunct to cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. There is a growing body of research evaluating the use of hypnosis with cognitive-behavioral techniques in the treatment of psychological disorders. The central question for research is whether the addition of hypnosis enhances the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral treatments.
Overall, studies demonstrate a substantial benefit from the addition of hypnosis ; however, the number of published studies is relatively small, and many of them have methodological limitations. For cognitive-behavioral hypnotherapies to be recognized as empirically supported treatments, a number of well-designed, randomized clinical trials are necessary.
Currently, the efficacy of hypnosis as an adjunctive treatment remains unresolved. Comparison of relaxation with counterpressure massage techniques for reduce pain first stage of labor. Based on interviews of so me mother who entered the first stage of labor lack of care from health workers to the effort to reducing the acuteof labor. Health care workers appertain hospital in effective in implement maternity nursing interventions in reducing acute the first stage of labor.
The reducing acute have two method are pharmacological and non-pharmacological. In this case, has several techniques there are: relaxation and counterpressure massage techniques that capable to reducing acute first stage of labor. The of non-pharmacological is one of authority which must be implemented by midwives especially breathing relaxation techniquesand massage. The research is Quasi Exsperimen with pretes-posttest design.
The statistic test has T test paired and unpairedt test. To indicatea reducing the level of acute before and after given relaxation technique result p-value pain. Therefore, the health of workers, especially for a study to apply relaxation and massage to provide of mother care, mainly to the primigravida who in experienced in process of labor.
Full Text Available Background: Numerous studies have documented on flexibility of muscles. Flexibility is defined as the ability of the muscles to lengthen allowing one joint or more than one joint in a series to move through a range of motion.
Flexibility allows tissue to accommodate more easily to stress thus minimizing or preventing muscle injury. But this study sought to identify the study to compare the effectiveness of Static stretch and Hold relax technique over the hamstring flexibility. Methods: 30 healthy male adults with Hamstring tightness aged 21 to 35 years selected from general population through simple randomized technique.
Samples are divided into two groups, static stretch Group-I no. Conclusion: Both static stretch and hold relax Technique can cause very highly significant result in Hamstring Flexibility, further comparison shows very high significant difference between two groups and concludes that hold relax is better than static stretch in Hamstring Flexibility.
Elucidating unconscious processing with instrumental hypnosis. Most researchers leverage bottom-up suppression to unlock the underlying mechanisms of unconscious processing. However, a top-down approach — for example via hypnotic suggestion — paves the road to experimental innovation and complementary data that afford new scientific insights concerning attention and the unconscious.
Drawing from a reliable taxonomy that differentiates subliminal and preconscious processing, we outline how an experimental trajectory that champions top-down suppression techniques , such as those practiced in hypnosis , is uniquely poised to further contextualize and refine our scientific understanding of unconscious processing.
Examining subliminal and preconscious methods, we demonstrate how instrumental hypnosis provides a reliable adjunct that supplements contemporary approaches. Specifically, we provide an integrative synthesis of the advantages and shortcomings that accompany a top-down approach to probe the unconscious mind. Our account provides a larger framework for complementing the results from core studies involving prevailing subliminal and preconscious techniques.
Full Text Available Most researchers leverage bottom-up suppression to unlock the underlying mechanisms of unconscious processing. Much of the field of hypnosis education focuses on what to teach content and who to teach professional identities.
A deserving area of focus, and less often addressed, is how to teach basic hypnosis concepts. Worldwide models for teaching hypnosis have mostly included lecture, demonstration, and practice, with little attention paid to the meta-level of educational principles i. Trainers in hypnosis have been compared to parents: They teach the way they were taught adults parent the way they were parented. There is a human tendency to repeat what we have experienced.
Mirroring is a part of all learning, and this article asks what else is needed in faculty education for the trainer to take students beyond mere mimicry to scientifically informed, skilled, and clinically creative uses of hypnosis. This article addresses the unique requirements for teaching hypnosis , reviews a teaching program for clinical hypnosis educators developed by the authors, and looks to future innovations in clinical hypnosis training. Full Text Available Background: Flexibility is important in prevention of injury, muscular and postural imbalance more over the Hamstring flexibility has a lion share in sports performances and preventing DOMS.
Stretching procedures increases the ROM by embarking on biomechanics and Neurologic and molecular mechanics. Hamstrings, the two joint muscle plays a crucial role in two joints integrity and also spine as they are in closed kinematic chain. The hamstring muscles represent the primary flexors of Knee. Hamstrings tightness results in Limits Knee extension when hip is flexed, Posterior Pelvic tilt, and flatten the lumbar spine.
Methods: The subjects selected randomly and divided into two groups Experimental group and control group. The knee joint range of motion was measured at the end of every week with Universal goniometer. Brain Oscillations, Hypnosis , and Hypnotizability.
This article summarizes the state-of-science knowledge regarding the associations between hypnosis and brain oscillations. Brain oscillations represent the combined electrical activity of neuronal assemblies, usually measured as specific frequencies representing slower delta, theta, alpha and faster beta, gamma oscillations. Hypnosis has been most closely linked to power in the theta band and changes in gamma activity. These oscillations are thought to play a critical role in both the recording and recall of declarative memory and emotional limbic circuits.
The authors propose that this role may be the mechanistic link between theta and perhaps gamma oscillations and hypnosis , specifically, that the increases in theta oscillations and changes in gamma activity observed with hypnosis may underlie some hypnotic responses. If these hypotheses are supported, they have important implications for both understanding the effects of hypnosis and for enhancing response to hypnotic treatments. Hypnosis is an ancient method of treatment, in which an enhanced state of mind and elevated susceptibility for suggestion of the patient, are increased.
Hypnosis is executed, either by a caregiver or by the person himself after brief training. The use of hypnosis in alleviating labor pain has been studied as of the second half of the 20th century. In early studies, the use of hypnosis for this purpose has been proven quite effective. However, later studies, performed in randomized controlled trial terms, have shown controversial results. Other studies, in which the effect of hypnosis was tested in various aspects of both obstetrics and gynecology and with different levels of success, are elaborated on in this review.
Location estimation in wireless sensor networks using spring- relaxation technique. Accurate and low-cost autonomous self-localization is a critical requirement of various applications of a large-scale distributed wireless sensor network WSN. Due to its massive deployment of sensors, explicit measurements based on specialized localization hardware such as the Global Positioning System GPS is not practical. In this paper, we propose a low-cost WSN localization solution.
Our design uses received signal strength indicators for ranging, light weight distributed algorithms based on the spring- relaxation technique for location computation, and the cooperative approach to achieve certain location estimation accuracy with a low number of nodes with known locations. We provide analysis to show the suitability of the spring- relaxation technique for WSN localization with cooperative approach, and perform simulation experiments to illustrate its accuracy in localization.
Full Text Available Accurate and low-cost autonomous self-localization is a critical requirement of various applications of a large-scale distributed wireless sensor network WSN. Mental training, relaxation techniques and pedagogical instructions to reduce Music Performance Anxiety MPA in flute students. Music Performance Anxiety MPA is, frequently, one of the problems faced by a musical performer in his or her career. This study observes way in which stage fright affects in musicians, which is a possible factor that may later lead to anxiety in public performances and, furthermore, how we can intervene to mitigate or reduce its effects.
An initial interview was conducted with four upper division students of transverse flute. This was followed by some training techniques - relaxation techni An hypnotic suggestion: review of hypnosis for clinical emergency care. Hypnosis has been used in medicine for nearly years.
Yet, emergency clinicians rarely use it in emergency departments or prehospital settings. This review describes hypnosis , its historical use in medicine, several neurophysiologic studies of the procedure, its uses and potential uses in emergency care, and a simple technique for inducing hypnosis. It also discusses reasons why the technique has not been widely adopted, and suggests methods of increasing its use in emergency care, including some potential research areas.
A limited number of clinical studies and case reports suggest that hypnosis may be effective in a wide variety of conditions applicable to emergency medical care. These include providing analgesia for existing pain e. Although it is safe, fast, and cost-effective, emergency clinicians rarely use hypnosis.
This is due, in part, to the myths surrounding hypnosis and its association with alternative-complementary medicine. Genuine barriers to its increased clinical use include a lack of assured effectiveness and a lack of training and training requirements. Based on the results of further research, hypnosis could become a powerful and safe nonpharmacologic addition to the emergency clinician's armamentarium, with the potential to enhance patient care in emergency medicine, prehospital care, and remote medical settings.
Hypnosis and pain in children. The development of studies on neuroimaging applied to hypnosis and to the study of pain not only helps to validate the existence of a hypnotic state but also to ratify its therapeutic effects. These studies also enable us to understand how hypnosis is effective on the cortical level. It also helps us see, from another perspective, the mechanisms of pain leading perhaps to a different definition of pain. This article develops the latest knowledge in the domain of hypnosis and pain, and approaches the clinical practices and their applications in the management of pain in children.
Hypnosis , hypnotizability, and placebo. Raz's speculations about the relation between placebo responsivity and hypnotizability are critically examined. While there is no generally accepted theoretical definition of hypnosis , there is a general consensus that hypnotizability can be reliably measured.
In contrast, there seems to be a general consensus about a theoretical definition of placebo including placebo effect, placebo response, and nocebo. There is no widely accepted measure of individual differences in placebo responsivity. Various methodological considerations about how to examine the relation between placebo responsivity and hypnotizability are identified. Studies are identified which indicate that response to treatments which utilize adjunctive hypnosis are superior to placebo treatments.
The only study which examined whether placebo responsivity was correlated with hypnotizability seems to indicate that they are only slightly related at best. The possibility that there may be such thing as a "good placebo responder GPR " is questioned, while the known clinical value of hypnotizability assessment is reaffirmed.
Future directions for empirical research on the relation between placebo responsivity and hypnotizability are identified. Hypnosis , hynotizability, and placebo. Raz' speculations about the relation between placebo responsivity and hypnotizability are critically examined. In contrast, there seems to be a general consensus about a theoretical definition of placebo including placebo effect, placebo response and nocebo.
Effect of yoga relaxation techniques on performance of digit-letter substitution task by teenagers. Techniques to improve these skills are not taught either in education or company training courses. Any system which can systematically improve these skills will be of value in schools, universities, and workplaces. Materials and Methods : Subjects consisted of school students, boys, 97 girls, in the age range years, who were attending a day yoga training course during summer vacation.
The selected subjects had English as their medium of instruction in school and they acted as their own controls. They were allocated to two groups, and tested on the DLST, immediately before and after The first group performed CM on day 9 and SR on day For the second group, the order was reversed.
Results : Within each group pre-post test differences were significant for both the relaxation techniques. The magnitude of net score improvement was greater after SR 7. Significance levels were P relaxation techniques lead to more wrong cancellation errors. Are Anesthesia Providers Ready for Hypnosis?
Anesthesia Providers' Attitudes Toward Hypnotherapy. This study sought to measure current attitudes toward hypnosis among anesthesia providers using an in-person survey distributed at a single grand rounds at a single academic teaching hospital. One hundred twenty-six anesthesia providers anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists were included in this study.
These data suggest that there is a self-reported lack of knowledge about hypnosis among anesthesia providers, although many anesthesia providers are open to the use of hypnosis in their clinical practice. Anesthesia providers are more likely to support the use of positive suggestion in their practice than hypnosis.
Practical concerns should be addressed if hypnosis and therapeutic verbal techniques are to gain more widespread use. Effectiveness of passive stretching versus hold relax technique in flexibility of hamstring muscle. Full Text Available Aim: To compare the effectiveness of passive stretching and hold relax technique in the flexibility of hamstring muscle.
Methods: A total of 80 normal healthy female subjects between age group years referred to the department of physiotherapy, Sumandeep Vidyapeeth University, sampling method being convenient sampling. The subjects were randomly divided in two groups i. Active knee extension range was measured before and after the intervention by goniometer. Conclusion: Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation technique is more effective in increasing hamstring flexibility than the passive stretching.
Hypnosis : placebo or nonplacebo? If the theory is adopted that hypnotic effects depend upon mobilization of the patient's hypnotizability, which is a measurable characteristic, a testable theory is provided. Experimental literature is reviewed that shows that placebo effects are not related to hypnotizability. Clinical outcome studies make it clear that results of hypnotherapy are related to hypnotizability in some disorders such as pain and anxiety, but not in the treatment of addiction or habit disorders.
An example of a procedure is given in which hypnosis is nonetheless usefully applied for its placebo value as a method to generate positive expectancies. Hypnosis and meditation, as a whole, form a heterogeneous complex of psychosomatic techniques able to control mind and body regulation. Hypnosis has been pragmatically used for limited therapeutic targets, while Eastern meditation has much wider philosophical and existential implications, aiming for a radical liberation from all illusions, attachments, suffering and pain.
The efficacy and safety of hypnotic techniques in somatic medicine, known as medical hypnosis , have not been supported to date by adequate scientific evidence. We systematically reviewed meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials RCTs of medical hypnosis. Meta-analyses involving at least patients were included in the present analysis. Out of the publications retrieved, five were reports of metaanalyses that met our inclusion criteria.
One of these meta-analyses was of high methodological quality; three were of moderate quality, and one was of poor quality. Hypnosis was superior to controls with respect to the reduction of pain and emotional stress during medical interventions 34 RCTs, patients as well as the reduction of irritable bowel symptoms 8 RCTs, patients.
Two meta-analyses revealed no differences between hypnosis and control treatment with respect to the side effects and safety of treatment. The effect size of hypnosis on emotional stress during medical interventions was low in one meta-analysis, moderate in one, and high in one. The effect size on pain during medical interventions was low. Five RCTs indicated that waking suggestion is effective in medical procedures.
Medical hypnosis is a safe and effective complementary technique for use in medical procedures and in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. Waking suggestions can be a component of effective doctor-patient communication in routine clinical situations. Effect of two yoga-based relaxation techniques on memory scores and state anxiety. Full Text Available Abstract Background A yoga practice involving cycles of yoga postures and supine rest called cyclic meditation was previously shown to improve performance in attention tasks more than relaxation in the corpse posture shavasana.
This was ascribed to reduced anxiety, though this was not assessed. All participants were assessed before and after i Cyclic meditation CM practiced for minutes on one day and ii an equal duration of Supine rest SR or the corpse posture shavasana, on another day.
Sections of the Wechsler memory scale WMS were used to assess; i attention and concentration digit span forward and backward, and ii associate learning. There was no correlation between percentage change in memory scores and state anxiety for either session. Conclusion A cyclical combination of yoga postures and supine rest in CM improved memory scores immediately after the practice and decreased state anxiety more than rest in a classical yoga relaxation posture shavasana.
The effects of progressive muscular relaxation and breathing control technique on blood pressure during pregnancy. Full Text Available Background: Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy are the main cause of maternal and fetal mortality; however, they have no definite effective treatment. The researchers aimed to study the effects of progressive muscular relaxation and breathing control technique on blood pressure BP during pregnancy. Materials and Methods: This three-group clinical trial was conducted in Mashhad health centers and governmental hospitals.
Progressive muscular relaxation and breathing control exercises were administered to the two experimental groups once a week in person and in the rest of the days by instructions given on a CD for 4 weeks. BP was checked before and after the interventions. BP was measured before and after 15 min subjects' waiting without any especial intervention in the control group.
Results: After 4 weeks of intervention, the systolic by a mean of Conclusions: The interventions were effective on decreasing systolic and diastolic BP to normal range after 4 weeks in both the groups. The effects of both the interventions were more obvious on systolic BP compared to diastolic BP. Effects of hypnosis during pregnancy: A psychophysiological study on maternal stress. Because it induces a state of reduced awareness and deep relaxation , hypnosis is thought to be efficient at relieving stress and anxiety.
This study examined whether hypnosis may alter the pattern and time evolution of maternal and fetal stress. Here we report a yrs-old primigravida woman at weeks' gestation who underwent daily sessions of hypnosis during one week. An A baseline -B intervention - A' return to baseline design was used.
Each study phase lasted one week. Uterine contractions as well as maternal and fetal heart rate were recorded over h periods in each of the study phase. Uterine contractions and maternal systolic blood pressure showed clear reductions during the hypnosis phase. In addition, a statistically significant declining trend in anxiety scores was observed during the hypnosis phase, and anxiety re-increased in the return-to-baseline phase phypnosis phase.
Our results suggest that a short-lived hypnosis intervention combined with standard care holds sufficient promise for antenatal stress relief to justify testing its efficacy in larger groups of pregnant women. Clinical hypnosis is an important mind-body tool that serves as an adjunct to conventional medical care for the adolescent patient. Clinical hypnosis specifically uses self-directed therapeutic suggestions to cultivate the imagination and facilitate the mind-body connection, leading to positive emotional and physical well-being.
Clinical hypnosis can be used by health care providers to teach adolescents coping skills to deal with a wide variety of conditions such as chronic headaches, recurrent abdominal pain, anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement, phobias, anger, family stressors, sleep disorders, or enuresis. Clinical vignettes are given to help illustrate the effectiveness of hypnosis in adolescents. Clinical hypnosis is an important mind—body tool that serves as an adjunct to conventional medical care for the adolescent patient.
Clinical hypnosis specifically uses self-directed therapeutic suggestions to cultivate the imagination and facilitate the mind—body connection, leading to positive emotional and physical well-being. Hypnosis in paediatric respiratory medicine.
Hypnotherapy is an often misunderstood yet effective therapy. It has been reported to be useful within the field of paediatric respiratory medicine as both a primary and an adjunctive therapy. This article gives a brief overview of how hypnotherapy is performed followed by a review of its applications in paediatric patients with asthma, cystic fibrosis, dyspnea, habit cough, vocal cord dysfunction, and those requiring non-invasive positive pressure ventilation.
As the available literature is comprised mostly of case series, retrospective studies, and only a single small randomized study, the field would be strengthened by additional randomized, controlled trials in order to better establish the effectiveness of hypnosis as a treatment, and to identify the processes leading to hypnosis -induced physiologic changes.
As examples of the utility of hypnosis and how it can be taught to children with respiratory disease, the article includes videos that demonstrate its use for patients with cystic fibrosis. Examines the relationship between hypnosis and human development. Defines hypnosis within a communications framework, and identifies essential features of hypnosis in the communicative exchanges of the first months of life; this forces a reconsideration of the understanding of the ontogenesis of hypnosis.
Identifies four key features of hypnosis ,…. Hypnosis , suggestion, and suggestibility: an integrative model. This article elucidates an integrative model of hypnosis that integrates social, cultural, cognitive, and neurophysiological variables at play both in and out of hypnosis and considers their dynamic interaction as determinants of the multifaceted experience of hypnosis.
The roles of these variables are examined in the induction and suggestion stages of hypnosis , including how they are related to the experience of involuntariness, one of the hallmarks of hypnosis. It is suggested that studies of the modification of hypnotic suggestibility; cognitive flexibility; response sets and expectancies; the default-mode network; and the search for the neurophysiological correlates of hypnosis , more broadly, in conjunction with research on social psychological variables, hold much promise to further understanding of hypnosis.
The measurement of very short spin-lattice, or longitudinal, relaxation SLR times i. The ability to measure such fast SLR data on amorphous Si and copper-chromium-tin spinel led to an understanding of the role of exchange interaction in affecting spin-lattice relaxation , while the data on polymer resins doped with rare-earth ions provided evidence of spin-fracton relaxation Pescia et al. But such fast SLR times are not measurable by the most commonly used techniques of saturation- and inversion-recovery Poole, ; Alger, , which only measure spin-lattice relaxation times longer than s.
A summary of relevant experimental data is presented in Table 1. Impact of self-administered relaxation and guided imagery techniques during final trimester and birth. The objective of this study was to test if and how self-administered practice of relaxation techniques , positive affirmation and guided imagery, in the final part of pregnancy had an impact on giving birth.
Further to see if the use of a simple method, a CD with a booklet, with no previous training or specific support of the participants neither required nor delivered , affected the birth experience. Outcome measures were monitored both during and after delivery: During delivery, pain and anxiety were measured at different stages of birth.
Those in the CD-intervention group also reported how many times they had practiced the techniques. The study employed a randomized controlled trial. Tension and relaxation in the individual. Increasing materialism in society is resulting in more wide spread nervous tension in all age groups. While some degree of nervous tension is necessary in everyday living, its adverse effects require that we must learn to bring it under control.
Total tension is shown to have two components: a controllable element arising from factors in the environment and the inbuilt uncontrollable residue which is basic in the individual temperament. The effects of excessive or uncontrolled stress can be classified as 1 emotional reactions such as neurotic behaviour anxiety hypochondria, hysteria, phobia, depression obsessions and compulsions or psychotic behaviour and 2 psychosomatic reactions nervous asthma, headache, insomnia, heart attack.
Nervous energy can be wastefully expended by such factors as loss of temper, wrong attitudes to work, job frustration and marital strains. Relaxation is the only positive way to control undesirable nervous tension and its techniques require to be learned. A number of techniques progressive relaxation , differential relaxation , hypnosis , the use of biofeedback, Yoga and Transcendental Meditation are described and their application to dental practice is discussed.
Effect of self- hypnosis on duration of labor and maternal and neonatal outcomes: a randomized controlled trial. To examine the effect of a brief course in self- hypnosis for childbirth on duration of the labor and other birth outcomes. A randomized, controlled, single-blind trial. Aarhus University Hospital Skejby, Denmark. A total of healthy nulliparous women. A hypnosis group receiving three 1-h lessons in self- hypnosis with additional audio-recordings to ease childbirth, a relaxation group receiving three 1-h lessons in various relaxation methods and mindfulness with audio-recordings for additional training, and a usual-care group receiving only the usual antenatal care were compared.
Duration of labor, birth complications, lactation success, caring for the child, and preferred future mode of delivery. No differences were found across the three groups on duration from arriving at the birth department until the expulsive phase of second stage of labor, the duration of the expulsive phase, or other birth outcomes. Fewer emergency and more elective cesarean sections occurred in the hypnosis group. No difference was seen across the groups for lactation success or caring for the child but fewer women in the hypnosis group preferred a cesarean section in future pregnancies because of fear of childbirth and negative birth experiences.
Learning self- hypnosis to ease childbirth taught as a brief course failed to show any effects on duration of childbirth and other birth outcomes. Hypnosis for pain management in the older adult. Pain is a physical, emotional and psychologic phenomenon that is often ignored in older adults causing depression and poor quality of life. Although physical pain in the older adult is usually managed with pharmacologic interventions, methods that may reduce the use of prescription drugs may decrease adverse effects that can compromise the physiologic state of the older adult.
Hypnosis has continued to gain acceptance within mainstream medicine as an appropriate treatment and can be integrated safely with conventional medicine as an effective treatment for a variety of conditions in the older adult. It is an intervention that can be used for relaxation and pain control, especially when conventional pharmacologic regimens have failed. The purpose of this article is to review the concepts related to pain in older adults; the use of complementary and alternative medicine in the older adult; hypnosis and the older adult i.

Waking self- hypnosis efficacy in cognitive-behavioral treatment for pathological gambling: an effectiveness clinical assay. This study evaluated the effect of self- hypnosis in cognitive-behavioral treatment of pathological gamblers. Forty-nine participants were assigned to 2 groups. Both groups received a cognitive-behavioral protocol, and Group 1, the no- hypnosis group, received an session intervention and Group 2, the hypnosis group, received 7 sessions that included self- hypnosis.
Both groups were equal in gambling chronicity, frequency, intensity, change motivation, and problems derived from gambling. All participants reported significant improvement in gambling behavior and consequences at both treatment end and 6-month follow-up. Data show no differences between the interventions in abstinence, therapeutic compliance, fulfillment, and satisfaction.
Results suggest that self- hypnosis reinforces treatment and can be a supportive technique for future brief interventions. Lagrangian relaxation technique in power systems operation planning: Multipliers updating problem. All Lagrangian relaxation based approaches to the power systems operation planning have an important common part: the Lagrangian multipliers correction procedure.
It is the subject of this paper. Different approaches presented in the literature are discussed and an original method for the Lagrangian multipliers updating is proposed. The basic idea of this new method is to update Lagrangian multipliers trying to satisfy Khun-Tucker optimality conditions. If Khun-Tucker optimality conditions are satisfied the value of this function is in range -1,0 ; otherwise the function has a big positive value.
