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.

Effect of music on patients undergoing colonoscopy: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

PURPOSE: Music has been utilized as a therapeutic tool during colonoscopy, but various randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have been inconsistent. We conducted a meta-analysis to analyze the effect of music on patients undergoing colonoscopy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Multiple medical databases were searched (12/06). Only RCTs on adult subjects that compared music versus no music during colonoscopy were included. Meta-analysis was analyzed for total procedure time, dose of sedative medications (midazolam and mepiridine), and patients' pain scores, experience, and willingness to repeat the same procedure in the future. RESULTS: Eight studies (N = 712) met the inclusion criteria. Patients' overall experience scores (P < 0.01) were significantly improved with music. No significant differences were noted for patients' pain scores (P = 0.09), mean doses of midazolam (P = 0.10), mean doses of meperidine (P = 0.23), procedure times (P = 0.06), and willingness to repeat the same procedure in future (P = 0.10). CONCLUSIONS: Music improves patients' overall experience with colonoscopy.

SHARON LEVIN's Gravatar Again this a most wonderful site - fibromyalgia research has
espoused most fervently that music (audio-somnic esp) to be the greatest benefitter to patients with FM/Adrenal Fatigue?CFS/ME-Cfids
and all stress-related illnesses, whether auto-immune/functional
medicine. After practicing RELIOUSLY, DEEP BREATHING WITH
GUIDED IMAGERY AND MUSIC, relaxation has become My and
MILLIONS of sufferers+ (ex-sufferers) 1st-line destressing/pain
relieving therapy. Self hypnotherapy should become routine, as
should meditation and relaxation to specific music! So glad to
