The area of increasing physical healing through hypnosis is a swiftly growing area of research. This study is of particular interest: This Harvard Medical School study shows that hypnosis significantly reduces the time it takes to heal physical injuries and wounds. “Six weeks after an ankle fracture, those in the hypnosis group showed the equivalent of eight and a half weeks of healing.”Harvard Medical School, Carol Ginandes and Union Institute in Cincinnati, Patricia Brooks, Harvard University Gazette Online at http://www.hno.harvard.edu/gazette/2003/05.08/01-hypnosis.html.
