Robin Miller, Integrative Medicine, answeredHypnosis can be very useful for managing headaches. A study of children and adolescents with chronic headaches who were taught self-hypnosis found that it reduced the number and intensity of headaches. Several other studies have found similar results.
Hypnosis might be worth a try for managing headaches, but scientifically this treatment has not really been demonstrated to be effective. If you want to try it, make certain that you see a skilled individual.
