Health or Hype? Kids Undergoing Hypnosis


Excerpted from

Some parents say it s made all the difference with their children, and for them seeing results is believing. The treatment involves relaxing music, soothing surroundings, and soft spoken words. It is intended to be a peaceful place conducive to healthy hypnosis. “A lot of people think of hypnosis as staged hypnosis because that’s what they’ve seen on TV or they’ve gone to a show, says Esmerelda Gonzalez. We have to ensure them that we’re not going to make them quack like a duck and that you know — and we have ethics.”

Little Julissa’s mom says math was a difficult area for her daughter not because she didn’t know how to do it but just because she didn’t have faith in herself. Hypnosis has helped, however. The treatments have also helped kids with problems like nail biting. For other parents, however, if anything it takes the pressure off and allows their kids to perform well in school with a little less anxiety.
