Is there a child in your family who suffers from headaches a lot. During the school year, that can make it really tough on a child to concentrate in class.
Here's what's new from the University of Minnesota, doctors there trained kids with chronic headaches to put themselves in a hypnotic state just two or three times a day in the privacy of their own home. They found that on average the kids who practiced this self induced hypnosis were able to reduce the number of headaches from more than four a week to maybe one a week. The kids said when they did have a heachache, it was less severe.
The study is in the Journal of Pediatrics.
