20 women undergoing breast biopsies were randomly assigned to a hypnosis or control group (standard care). It was established that hypnosis reduced post surgery pain and distress. Initial evidence also suggested that the effects of hypnosis were mediated by pre-surgery expectations ('The International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis', January 2002)..†

All 5 patients showed significant improvement as a result of the hypnotic intervention. Four of the 5 patients reported using significantly less pain medication during the treatment phase ('Hypnosis for the Control of HIV/AIDS-Related Pain' by Mark Christopher Langenfeld, Ennio Cipani, and Jeffrey J. Borckardt in 'The International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis', April 2002).†
