Hypnosis has been used to manage the pain, depression and anxiety related to the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Our founder, Eva M Clark, dedicated 2 1/2 years to studying the effect of hypnotherapy on treating multiple sclerosis and designed a MS Hypnosis Program.
The program is not a form of symptom management but a complementary treatment of multiple sclerosis.
The program is based on previous research in hypnotherapy for MS and other diseases, as well as interviews with other hypnotherapists already successful and current literature.
Research in hypnotherapy for multiple sclerosis have mainly focused on pain management:
Mind-Body Medicine for Multiple Sclerosis: A Systematic Review
Hypnosis for Pain and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation with Multiple Sclerosis: Case Summary, Literature Review, and Analysis of Outcomes
Effects of Self-Hypnosis Training and Cognitive Restructuring on Daily Pain Intensity and Catastrophizing in Individuals with Multiple Sclerosis and Chronic Pain
Hypnosis as Adjunctive Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis: A Progress Report
The Effectiveness of Hypnotherapy in Treating Multiple Sclerosis. This study, the result of 2 1/2 years of our founder Eva Clark's work with 24 volunteers, shows that hypnotherapy, including medical hypnosis, NLP and voice dialogue, may improved many symptoms related to MS and increase patient's overall quality of life. The study shows cognitive function increased from 65% to 95%, energy from 30% to 60%, and pain improved from 35% to 50%. Overall the physical health composite score improved from 45% to 60% and the mental health composite score from 50% to 80%. All participants, both RRMS and PPMS forms of MS, show symptom and quality of life improvement.
This study was used by Eva to design an effective Multiple Sclerosis Hypnotherapy Program. The Program focuses on transforming the mental patterns present in people with MS so that their response to life and stressors is more robust and is the basis of the medical hypnotherapy training.
