From ‘Hypnosis in dermatology’ by PD Shenefelt in ‘Arch Dermatol’, 2000
Researchers at the Department of Dermatology, The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA carried out a three month study into the use of hypnotherapy in adults suffering with stable, chronic, plaque-type psoriasis. The researchers found hypnosis to be an effective treatment of psoriasis with the highly hypnotisable patients receiving greater benefit than those who were only moderately hypnotisable.
