Hypnosis to tackle problems of chronic pain: International expert
Presenting at the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, Annual Scientific Meeting in Brisbane, visiting rehabilitation expert Professor Mark Jensen, Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington, urged healthcare professionals to consider Hypnotic Therapy as a ‘mainstream’ treatment option in the management of chronic pain, and to discuss this option with their patients.
