The claim that hypnosis does work to relieve PTSD symptoms is supported by numerous studies comparing groups of PTSD patients receiving hypnosis with groups receiving interventions such as systematic desensitization.

A study of Vietnam veterans found a history of physical abuse in childhood has been shown to be strongly associated with dissociative symptoms later in life. Vietnam veterans with PTSD have higher than normal hypnotizability scores on standardized tests.

The hypnotherapy group showed significantly lower pain ratings than the control group and reported a significant reduction in pain from baseline. There was a significant reduction in trauma reexperience scores in the hypnotherapy group but not the control group. The findings support the efficacy of hypnotherapy in the management of both pain and reexperiencing of trauma in burn patients.
