British researchers find that foot massage and, to a lesser extent, guided relaxation, substantially improved calmness and well-being in post-op coronary bypass patients.

Researchers at the University of Brighton in East Sussex, UK, sought to identify a safe and effective therapeutic intervention that would promote well being in post-op patients recovering from coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery - something that could easily and practically be provided by nurses on the floor. Foot massage and guided relaxation were the interventions chosen to be studied.

Meta-analysis at the University of Connecticut reveals that, not only does hypnosis/imagery double weight loss when added to a behavioral program, but the benefits escalate substantially over time.

Researchers from the University of Connecticut at Storrs ran a third meta-analysis of the effect of adding hypnosis to a behavioral program for weight reduction. They collected data from 2 more studies, and corrected for computational inaccuracies in the 2 previous meta-analyses. Just as with the Canyon Ranch pilot study with our Weight Loss imagery, it continues to look like adding a right brain intervention like hypnosis and/or imagery to a behavioral program will double weight loss.

Hungarian researchers find that autogenic training reduces the frequency of tension, migraine and mixed headaches, as well as the consumption of drugs for these conditions.

In controlled, clinical trials at Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary, researchers examined the effects of Schultz-type autogenic training (a simple form of self-hypnosis) on headache-related drug consumption and headache frequency in patients with either migraine, tension-type, or mixed (migraine plus tension-type) headache over an 8-month period. There are only a few studies that compare the efficacy and durability of the same treatment in different types of primary headache, and the effects of treatment on headache-related drug consumption rarely have been assessed even in these studies.
