Hypnosis can relieve symptoms in children with respiratory diseases
Date:2/12/2010

New Rochelle, NY, February 12, 2010Hypnosis has potential therapeutic value in children with respiratory disorders for alleviating symptoms such as habit cough or unexplained sensations of difficulty breathing and for lessening a child's discomfort during medical procedures.
