The Hypnotherapist for IBS
"Hypnosis appears to calm the GI tract." —Olafur S. Palsson, PsyD, Chapel Hill, Noth Carolina

Only about half of irritable bowel syndrome patients will find real relief after six months of treatment. This statistic led Palsson to develop a radically different therapy—a hypnosis technique that soothes the digestive system. After seven sessions, patients see a 50 percent reduction in their symptoms, on average. More than 400 mental health professionals in the country use this method.
