We just love Stanford University! They do a lot of research on what happens with hypnosis. In fact there’s buckets full of research going on about hypnotherapy as scientists glimpse how it affects the brain. And it’s all good stuff.
A group of researchers at the Stanford School of Medicine just used brain imaging to see what was actually happening to people while they were under hypnosis.
Stanford psychiatry professor David Spiegel, reported “That [hypnosis] has therapeutic potential. You can get people to shake up the way they react to problems and approach them from a different point of view.” He added “It is a neurobiological phenomenon.“
