Research shows that hypnosis is very effective for weight loss, whether used as a stand alone treatment or combined with cognitive behavioural therapy ("CBT").
An analysis of many different scientific trials showed that in the group that only received hypnosis (and not CBT):
The average participant receiving some form of hypnosis lost more weight than about 94% of control participants at the end of treatment and about 81% of controls at follow-up.
An analysis of many different trials involving the use of both hypnosis and CBT showed:
The average participant receiving CBT plus hypnosis lost more weight than about 60% of participants receiving only CBT at the end of treatment and about 79% of participants receiving only CBT at follow-up.
In summary, hypnosis is a very effective treatment in producing weight loss and it is a treatment option for obesity.
