Hypnotic analgesia has been described in anecdotal terms for centuries. Recent research has built on a modern understanding of hypnosis using psychometric, neurophysiological, and imaging techniques. We now have a better understanding of the psychological and neurophysiological mechanisms that underpin this phenomenon. At the same lime, clinical trials testing the efficacy of hypnosis in acute and chronic pain management have been growing in number. This chapter surveys current knowledge of the mechanisms of hypnotic analgesia and the efficacy of hypnosis in acute and chronic pain management.
