Often surgeries are far more complicated and invasive than need be because the patient’s state of mind and cooperation are occupied with fear and worry. Negative thinking can activate defensive mechanisms in the patient and create constriction in the body which may impede surgery as well as the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Doctors are now understanding the value that hypnotherapy plays in performing a successful surgery, minimizing invasive procedures or drug use, and ensuring an optimal postoperative recovery period for the patient. In fact, blind studies have demonstrated that those who underwent hypnosis before a hysterectomy showed greater improvement in bowel health and recovery time compared to the control group. Through hypnotherapy, we can access the subconscious mind and create positive and life affirming belief systems associated with the upcoming procedure.
Various studies have shown that surgical patients treated with hypnosis experienced substantial pre, intra and post-operative benefits. “These include reduced preoperative anxiety, less adverse events during surgery, less chemo analgesic requirement during surgery, less procedural duration, and better postoperative outcomes.”(www.researchgate.net) When an individual has negative thinking or worry about an upcoming procedure, the body may often respond by expecting a painful and difficult experience. Our subconscious mind is responsible for the majority of the autonomous functioning of the body and it is important that we are mindful of the thoughts and expectations we have of an upcoming surgery. Hypnotherapy will alter any negative belief systems and allow you to experience greater feelings of trust and optimism. You will also leave your session with tools that you can apply to deepen your relaxation when negative feelings arise or moments before the surgery. These tools will become a powerful resource for you.
Hypnotherapy is a perfectly natural process that does not rely on medicative intervention. In fact, it may even minimize or completely eliminate medication during the procedure. The less invasive the procedure, the less stress your body will experience and recovery time will be improved. The objective of any procedure is to create a better state of health and balance. Hypnotherapy can help shift your perspective from fear of surgery to joy and gratitude about receiving treatment that will correct or improve an issue and bring you greater health.
