Implications on hypnotherapy: Neuroplasticity, epigenetics and pain


Császár, Noémi; Scholkmann, Felix; Bókkon, István (2021). Implications on hypnotherapy: Neuroplasticity, epigenetics and pain. Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews, 131:755-764.

Abstract

We provide a brief review about the significance of hypnosis with respect to applications and physiological processes in hypnotherapy. Our review concludes that hypnosis is a promising method to manage acute and chronic pain. In addition, we discuss indications pointing toward the view that hypnosis can induce changes in neuroplasticity possibly involving epigenetic mechanisms.
