The IBS Register was established in July 1997 by Michael Mahoney, a medical centre based clinical hypnotherapist, who through medical research project experience and specialising in treating IBS with hypnotherapy, developed specific hypnotherapy processes to assist IBS sufferers to reduce and manage their physical and emotional IBS symptoms, and in some cases remove symptoms of IBS altogether. With success rates of 85-95% during trials, Michael runs Continued Professional Development (CPD) workshops to teach his specific protocol method OPSIM™ (Ongoing Progressive Session Induction Method) to qualified Hypnotherapists to make this successful treatment more widely available to IBS patients.
Michael Mahoney is also the developer of the highly acclaimed home based IBS Audio Program 100® specifically developed for the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and is trusted by users in over 48 countries worldwide.
