Check out this article from the NIH about including hypnotherapy as an adjunct therapy into the treatment options for patients who are suffering with cancer pain.
“There is significant evidence that hypnosis is effective at reducing cancer-related symptoms such as pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, and anxiety”
“Hypnosis has been found to be not only effective in the management of procedural pain, anxiety, and distress but superior to structured attention, empathy, and IV analgesia for those conditions”
Hypnotherapy is scientifically proven and widely accepted as a powerful adjunctive therapy- applied along with traditional cognitive therapy. With hypnotherapy, we are addressing the potential unconscious ideas, beliefs, and emotions that often limit the patient from achieving optimal medical outcomes or potentials.My role as a clinical hypnotherapist is to motivate patients to engage their mind, body and emotions on their healing journey. And I help them achieve this through focused discussion, guided imagery and exercises in creating calm and relaxation. Acting as a guide, I support patients with engaging in their treatment program and/ or their journey back to health. I help patients with directing their locus of control back to self. So join me in a weekly – online Guided Imagery and Hypnosis for Healing course!
