Research on hypnotherapy has been looked upon to treat patients with BII phobia. Hypnotherapists are known for using relaxing therapies towards individuals with common anxiety issues. A form of therapy given to patients with BII phobia include the “Applied Tension” method, which was developed by Lars-Göran Öst and his colleagues at the University of Uppsala in Sweden. This “coping method involves creating tension on a person’s arms, legs, and chest until they start to feel their body temperature rising,” (Robertson) which usually occurs within 10 to 20 seconds. These sessions of muscle tension is repeated 5 times with 20 to 30 second breaks. Patients should complete this form of therapy over the course of 5 weeks. This helps to prevent the patient from fainting by applying tension to the body, the blood pressure steadily rises, preventing any sudden drop until their vaccination is complete. By using this treatment, there was a noticeable improvement by 90% of patients with BII phobia. Compared to patients that only used the relaxation methods, where only 60% showed noticeable improvement.
