A single session of hypnosis and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) in the treatment of chronic pain

Description

Hypnosis and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) in the treatment of chronic pain were examined. In a randomised controlled trial, patients in a crossover design experienced one session of hypnotherapy and EMDR. Subjective pain within treatment sessions was assessed using the McGill Pain Questionnaire. Subjective pain between treatment sessions was assessed using a diary record of pain. Treatment brought about reductions in subjective pain with evidence for the superiority of hypnosis.
