Some of the most popular therapies we offer deal with pain management issues.
Backing these types of therapies, the June 2002 Harvard Mental Health Newsletter
reported, “One of the best-confirmed therapeutic uses of hypnosis is the control
of pain.” Also noted in the same newsletter, “A meta-analysis of 18 controlled studies
found that hypnosis provided significant pain relief for more than 75% of the 900
patients involved in the studies.” There is an ever increasing body of
evidence supporting the use of hypnosis to speed post-op recovery as well as dealing
with pre-operational anxiety and stress as is a number of contemporary studies indicating
that hypnosis has multiple applications at several differing levels of cancer care.
Those interested in sessions concerning these types of health issues should
note that we require a medical referral. We are willing to fax your doctor prior
to your first appointment or if you prefer you may email us requesting a copy of
our Doctor Referral Form and we'll reply with the appropriate form attached. If
you would prefer a consultation visit with us first, before obtaining a doctor’s
referral, we'll be happy to accommodate you, but keep in mind that pain specific
sessions require a signed doctor’s referral.
Studies have shown hypnosis to be beneficial in helping relieve asthma, chronic
pain, nausea, anxiety, and phobias....
