Quote from: Seany on 28/03/2008 13:02:52 In hypnothic state (trance) it is possible (at least for some people), to have surgical operations without anesthesia (it was on a Scientific American article some years ago). This can give you the idea of how hypnosis can be effective.

Wow.. That's coolDo you need to see a hypnosist.. Or just by reading?
Ohh..I watched Top Gear the other day.. And Richard Hammond got hypnotised, and didn't know how to drive a car. Is this possible?
I hate dentists! I hate those injections they put in your gum. I hate it when you have to dribble for the rest of the day and don't realise when you bite your tongue.Then I went to a dentist that believed in hypnotism. I'm the biggest sceptic in the world but when he said that he could do the filling without giving me an injection I was well up for it.He played relaxing music, the technician held my hand and the lighting was different to your average dental surgary. I can't say that I didn't have any pain but the experience was much better than I had experienced before.I think a lot of alternative therapies rely on making someone feel human and cared about. This is certainly what is missing from a lot of NHS treatments.However, be careful, hypnotism can be terrible if misused!!!!
I mean did your mum have to see a person who does hypnosis, or was it just like a book or a tape or..

I have a friend who used to do a stint as a stage hypnotist, but she was saying about how some of the guys would brag about being able to seduce girls with hypnosis (certainly, there have been stories in the past with professional hypnotists having affairs with their patients).
A hypnotist from West Sussex has undergone surgery on his right hand without a general anaesthetic.Alex Lenkei, 61, from Worthing, chose to sedate himself by hypnosis before undergoing the 83-minute operation.He said he was fully aware of everything going on around him during the procedure but was free from pain.The operation at Worthing Hospital involved removing some bone in the base of the thumb and fusing some joints in an attempt to improve his arthritis.Consultant orthopaedic surgeon David Llewellyn-Clark said he was happy in agreeing to the unusual sedation on Mr Lenkei, a registered hypnotist who has been practising since the age of 16. Mr Lenkei said Wednesday's surgery "went amazingly well"."It took between 30 seconds to a minute for me to place myself under hypnosis, and from that point I felt a very deep relaxation."I was aware of everything around me, from people talking and at one stage a hammer and chisel was used as well as a surgical saw, but I felt no pain."Throughout the operation, an anaesthetist was on standby to administer an anaesthetic if necessary.Mr Llewellyn-Clark said he had been confident that Mr Lenkei was a skilled hypnotist and was "delighted all went well".
