Yesterday, the results of a pilot study on HelloMinds’s effect on itching caused by atopic eczema were presented at Aarhus Universitetshospital in Denmark. The headline was:
“Hypnosis on an app actually works”
We are not surprised but very happy that the study shows such good results for people with atopic eczema. We are looking forward to seeing more studies about hypnosis and HelloMind.
“HelloMind is an app, that coaches without a coach and provides therapy without a therapist.”
Last week we were in Paris to explain how to relieve stress, bad sleep, unhealthy habits and low self-esteem – just using an app and a pair of headphones at home from the couch. We were selected as one of the top 10 ideas out of 368 very different proposals from all over Europe to the “Start Here Awards 2017”. Photo: Girls & Tech : Meet StartHer

HelloMind wishes to push forward the development of digital services that are used to improve mental well-being. That is why we have sent our CEO Jacob Strachotta out into the world to tell everyone about our app.
Here he is on stage in New Orleans talking about HelloMind at the 30th annual Psych Congress. The theme was “Disrupting Mental Illness”.
FYI, Jacob is the guy with the white shirt and no jacket.

A recent study have discovered that distinct areas of the brain show altered activity and connectivity during hypnotic trances in individuals who are highly hypnotizable:
“In patients who can be easily hypnotized, hypnosis sessions have been shown to be effective in lessening chronic pain, the pain of childbirth and other medical procedures; treating smoking addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder; and easing anxiety or phobias. The new findings about how hypnosis affects the brain might pave the way toward developing treatments for the rest of the population — those who aren’t naturally as susceptible to hypnosis.”
“ . . . this is the best self hypnosis app I’ve tried. Before, I was afraid of success. Now I am not afraid of success anymore. Not even a little bit. . . ”
