Pre-surgery hypnosis may be the single most underutilized application of hypnosis.
We have great hospitals in Rhode Island and Massachusetts: Women and Infants, Rhode Island Hospital, Roger Williams, Merriam Hospital and of course so many well known hospitals in the Boston area. And we are blessed with wonderful surgeons.
Yet it is only natural to feel nervous. Hospitals and the surgery process are unfamiliar experiences. And there are risks associated with surgery, though often not as likely or as grave as our imaginations create.
Fortunately, hypnosis can help you greatly relieve your anxiety before surgery and, as a result, potentially improve its outcome. Here are some of the benefits that hypnosis offers. It can:
- Significantly reduce your anxiety before surgery
- Reduce bleeding during surgery
- Promote more rapid healing after surgery
- Speed your recovery time
- Reduce pain
Click here to read an article in Anesthesia and Analgesia Journal that backs up these remarkable claims. It shows that hypnosis, even pre-recorded hypnosis, has been demonstrated to improve the surgery outcomes in almost nine out of ten of cases
The study summarizes its finding by concluding that “the results indicated that patients in hypnosis treatment groups had better clinical outcomes in surgery than 89% of patients in control groups. These data strongly support the use of hypnosis with surgical patients.
What hypnosis before surgery does is program you to be relaxed and at peace with the surgery process from the days and weeks awaiting surgery to the actual moment you are wheeled into the operating room.
