Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

No doubt those familiar with current research in psychobiology will be interested in hypnotherapist Rossi's description of therapeutic hypnosis, as will lay readers not daunted by the numerous citations to the professional literature. Integrating information from clinical and experimental studies on the placebo response, stress, neuroendocrinology, molecular genetics, the neurobiology of learning and memory, and psychosomatic medicine, he postulates a theory of mind-body communication and explores the idea of a mind-gene connection. His approach to mind-body healing is to help patients convert "stress symptoms into meaningful signals and psychological problems into creative functions" through therapeutic hypnosis. Appropriate for professional and large public libraries. Jodith Janes, University Hospitals of Cleveland

Format: Hardcover
The book explains in great detail the influence and the effect of mind over body from the perspective of neuro-biology. In simple terms, most healing performed with hypnosis are a result of mind influencing the blood-flow, which then creates corresponding changes in the body.

Rossi provides a some amazing case-histories where hypnosis has helped people deal with problems which were unresponsive to regular medical treatment.

Together with a number of healing techniques, the focus is on Ericksonian principle of utilization. In this respect he also points out the significance of "utradian rhythm" - the fact that throughout the day we all drift in and out of trance naturally, and that one could do hypnosis even more-effectively by doing it in accord with ultradian rhythm, at a time when the person feels naturally more relaxed and drifting into a trance state.

In a word, excellent. A wonderful explanation of mind-body dynamics and the placebo effect. Some excellent hypnotic and mind-body healing techniques. Dr. Rossi is a true expert in his field. He fully justifies that reputation with this book.

this book is easy to read & gives easily replicable procedures. many of his advanced interpretations are based on very basic material used in the national guild of hypnotists certification training. this book acts as an upgrade to the training.
