Mindful Hypnotherapy for Stress

The feasibility of Mindful Hypnotherapy (MH) intervention for stress reduction was investigated in a randomized trial.

Results indicated excellent feasibility, determined by participant satisfaction, treatment adherence (84% compliance rate), and low rate of adverse events (4.5%). There were significant differences between the MH and control groups post intervention, with the mindful hypnotherapy intervention resulting in significant and large decrease in perceived distress.

This study indicates that MH is a feasible intervention for stress reduction and increasing mindfulness.
