When you’re faced with health issues or ailments, from high blood pressure to chronic pain, hypnosis is a practical complement to medical advice and intervention.
Hypnosis therapy allows you to actively participate in your own health and healing.
Using your imagination by means of hypnosis is a powerful way to help your mind and body stay strong, heal and perform properly.
Many disorders or conditions are identified as stress related. By using hypnosis and experiencing the deep relaxation associated with it you can have a significant impact on your general feeling of wellbeing, healing, and ability to cope. It can also help calm emotional distress that may be associated with medical issues.
There have been numerous studies supporting the use of hypnosis therapy for health and healing. Research done by the Cleveland Clinic points to hypnosis as a valid tool to reduce surgical stress, decrease the need for pain medication and shorten hospital stays. In other research at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, children who were taught to use self hypnosis had similar results.
Positive results in these and other areas have been reported in the Lancet, Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery, Journal of the American Medical Association, Harvard Mental Health Letter, and many others.
While hypnosis is not a “cure” for physical disease, it may make a positive contribution to the overall quality of your comfort, healing and outcome. You may consider hypnosis for the following:
- Pre-surgery preparation
- Post-surgery healing
- Back pain
- Irritable bowl syndrom
- Skin conditions
- Much more
Hypnosis should not be used as a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and medical care.
