The objective of this research was to test the effectiveness of hypnosis as a natural treatment for migraine and aura. The assumption that hypnosis is primarily psychological in nature whereas migraine and aura are psycho-neurological phenomena, determined the adoption of a psycho-neurological model for this research.
