Amazing Proven Statistics in Hypnotherapy: Hypnosis Over 30 Times as Effective for Weight Loss Investigated the effects of hypnosis in weight loss for 60 females, at least 20% overweight. Treatment included group hypnosis with metaphors for ego-strengthening, decision making and motivation, ideomotor explora- tion in individual hypnosis, and group hypnosis with maintenance suggestions.
