BACKGROUND: Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a disease of the urinary bladder in which the lining may become inflamed and ulcerated, resulting in pain, urinary frequency and urgency. While traditional hypnotherapy has been shown effective in treating IC, some clients do not want the use of suggestion, daily self-hypnosis or extended treatment. CASE: A woman presented with a 9-year medical history of IC without resolution despite multiple medical treatments. Six sessions with Dr. Sidman's advanced approach to hypnotherapy resulted in her being free of pain and related symptoms for at least 5 years since this intervention. CONCLUSION: Resolution of IC symptoms was obtained in a client who had been refractory to conventional medical treatment.
