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

Gradual effects of therapeutic touch in reducing anxiety in university students

This is quantitative research conducted with 42 students of a public university using the Therapeutic Touch - Krieger-Kunz Method and the application of a questionnaire validated in Brazil to assess anxiety in three sessions. Subjects were divided into two groups: experimental (1), in which the complementary therapy was used; and control (2), in which a mock of the technique, with no therapeutic intention, was applied. The objective was to identify the gradual influence of that health complementary therapy upon the students' state of anxiety. The analysis of the data showed a statistically significant reduction of the state of anxiety in both groups, with pd' 0.05.
