Recent psycho-physiological data supports the concept that hypnotic interventions for pain management are beneficial. The aim of this study was to evaluate pain relief induced through hypnosis in two chronic pain conditions: fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic migraine (CM). Participants were treated during 5 weekly hypnosis sessions, each lasting 60 min. A battery of self-reported questionnaires assessing quality of life, pain intensity and depression levels were administered at the beginning and end of the treatment. Differences in outcomes of an important group, particularly, CM patients were observed.

Key words: Neuromatrix theory, hypnosis, fibromyalgia, chronic migraine.
