Overview

Many of the hypotheses that Rossi proposed when this book was published in 1986 have now been confirmed. The mind-body connection is a process that can be seen, measured and accessed through hypnosis. In establishing that it is possible to use the mind to heal body illness, he now brings together new evidence from psychoneuroimmunology, neuroendocrinology, molecular genetics and neurobiology. More than a dozen new approaches to mind-body healing are outlined in a series of teaching tutorials.
