Hypnosis for Children

Examining the research on the use of hypnosis for children facing medical anesthesia, pain, or chemotherapy, a summary of benefits suggests that:

  • Hypnosis reduces pain and anxiety before, during, and after the use of anesthetics.
  • Hypnosis reduces pain and anxiety during dental procedures.
  • Hypnosis can be used to manage the pain of recurrent headaches, abdominal pain, and distress around receiving chemotherapy.
  • Hypnosis can also be helpful in treating nighttime disorders such as insomnia and bed wetting.
