Non-Cardiac Chest Pain Can Be Treated By Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy has been found to be effective in reducing chest pain, not associated with cardiac abnormalities. Nearly 1/3rd of patients with chest pain have no identifiable cause // for their pain.

Additionally, hypnotherapy was found to reduce the use of painkillers, other similar drugs and improve the general health status of the study participant. The levels of depression or anxiety however remained similar in both the groups.

Only 3 out of the 13 people treated by supportive therapy and placebo reported pain relief in the control group. Brain scans done on hypnotherapy treated patients have already shown that it affects a specific region of the brain that is associated with processesing emotional content of a painful stimulus. Furthermore, a substantial reduction in levels of gastric acid secreted by the stomach has been noted.
