Hypnosis Can Multiply Your Chances of Successful Weight Loss By More Than 30!
60 females, at least 20% of whom were overweight were involved in a clinical study, where treatments included group hypnosis, individual hypnosis and maintenance suggestions. An average of 17 lbs (7.7kgs) was lost by those that were hypnotised, compared to just 0.5lbs (225grams) in the control group who were not hypnotised.
