I just found out that Good Morning America (tv show) did a story about hypnosis. Diane Sawyer trained in self-hypnosis so she could walk over hot coals. In the intro, The Power of the Mind video, she talks about how the power of the mind can rid the body of common symptoms & ailments. The clip shows the 1st c-section done in the 1960s with hypnosis & they show a little bit of video of the woman singing while they do the procedure! Amazing!
