Welcome to The International Hypnosis Research Institute Web site. Our intention is to support and promote the further worldwide integration of comprehensive evidence-based research and clinical hypnotherapy with mainstream mental health, medicine, and coaching. We do so by disseminating, supporting, and conducting research, providing professional level education, advocating increased level of practitioner competency, and supporting the viability and success of clinical practitioners. Although currently over 80% of our membership is comprised of mental health practitioners, we fully recognize the role, support, involvement, and needs of those in the medical and coaching fields. This site is not intended as a source of medical or psychological advice. Tim Brunson, PhD

Foundations of sound therapy.

In the practice of music therapy, the use of the sounds of a live naturally singing voice appears to be the most effective; in some cases, results are obtained whereas there are no results using musical sounds, and generally results are obtained in a much shorter time. Sounds and singing in just intonation are particularly efficient. This practice introduces to a deep understanding of sound therapy. Sketched here are the vocal soundbody relationship and the vocal sound consciousness relationship, which are relevant in this therapy. Finally clinical examples are given (coma states, loss of speech, old persons, states close to death, mind handicapped persons, depression, etc.). Bibliography I.
