The evidence related to accupuncture, accupressure, dietary supplements, homeopathy and hypnotherapy. Except for hypnotherapy, Ephedra sinica and other ephedrine-containing dietary supplements the weight of the evidence is not convincing enough to suggest effectiveness. Hypnotherapy, E. sinica and other ephedrine-containing dietary supplements may lead to small reductions in weight. Complementary Therapies for Reducing Body Weight: A Systematic Review, International Journal of Obesity, 31 May 2005 

In a 3rd meta-analysis of the effect of adding hypnosis to cognitive-behavioral treatments for weight reduction, additional data were obtained from authors of 2 studies, and computational inaccuracies in both previous meta-analyses were corrected. Averaged across post treatment and follow-up assessment periods, the mean weight loss was 6.00 lbs. (2.72 kg) without hypnosis and 11.83 lbs. (5.37 kg) with hypnosis. The mean effect size of this difference was 0.66 SD . At the last assessment period, the mean weight loss was 6.03 lbs. (2.74 kg) without hypnosis and 14.88 lbs. (6.75 kg) with hypnosis. The effect size for this difference was 0.98 SD. Correlational analyses indicated that the benefits of hypnosis increased substantially over time ( r = .74 ) .

Kirsch, Irving Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, Vol 64(3), Jun 1996, 517-519. doi: 10.1037/0022-006X.64.3.517
