Hypnosis for anesthesia has been used since the 1840s.

A hypnotherapist helps patients control their subconscious reflexes so that they do not feel pain in the traditional sense.

Patients are aware of sensation as the operation progresses and often describe a tingling or tickling sensation where the pain would normally be expected.
