Hypnosis, Psoriasis and Skin Conditions

Recent research shows that hypnosis helps psoriasis sufferers

Psoriasis is chronic relapsing skin disease which may be triggered by a number of factors, including trauma, infections and most notably emotional stress. For this reason, researchers at the Department of Dermatology, The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA carried out a three month study into the use of hypnotherapy in adults suffering with stable, chronic, plaque-type psoriasis. 

Five patients received an active suggestion technique in which positive statements relating specifically to the patient's skin are given , and six patients received a neutral hypnosis technique in which there is no mention of the disease. 

Although this was only a small scale study, it suggests that hypnotherapy may be a useful therapeutic treatment for those patients diagnosed with psoriasis who are highly hypnotisable. However, more comprehensive research on a much larger scale is needed, not only to discover the mechanisms and degrees of healing for psoriasis patients, but also to establish which patients are 'highly hypnotisable'.

Research shows that the brain causes our skin to respond to hypnotic suggestion

In a classic experiment, Japanese doctors Ikemi and Nakagawa hypnotised volunteers and told them that a leaf applied to their skin was a toxic plant, such as a poison ivy. The plant was harmless but the subjects' skin became red and irritated. The same experimenters applied the real toxic plant to other subjects' skin after telling them it was innocuous. The expected biological reaction of irritation did not take place.

In 1928, Drs. Heilig and Hoff of the University of Vienna used hypnosis to alleviate outbreaks of oral herpes (cold sores). In a separate experiment, they could also trigger new outbreaks in these patients by reminding them, under hypnosis, of the painful events that had triggered them originally (such as a death in the family) and of the itching and tingling that usually come just before the sores appear.

Drs. Kaneko and Takaishi of the Osaka University Medical School used a similar procedure with hives. Fourteen of the twenty-seven patients they treated made complete or near-complete recoveries; only five reported no benefit. They too could bring the symptoms back with hypnosis, either by suggesting skin irritation directly or by bringing to mind situations that aroused anger.

Additionally, two dozen scientific reports, including several large-scale studies, describe successfully treating warts by using hypnosis. In recent years, many more researchers have effectively applied these techniques to a wide variety of symptoms and conditions.
Rather than dividing illness into "emotional" or "psychosomatic" and "physical," we need to think of emotions as a factor in all skin problems. This is the principle of "mind-body" medicine.

How hypnotherapy helps

The theory is that through focusing the mind, via relaxation and suggestions, we effect tiny changes in blood flow, body temperature, muscle tension, and immune function which makes enormous differences in the physical processes that produce various skin symptoms.
Hypnosis is an complementary therapy that has been used since ancient times to treat medical problems. Today, it is successfully used with a wide variety of skin conditions as well.
