In a study published September 2007 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, women who underwent hypnosis before their surgery for breast cancer experienced less pain, fatigue and nausea afterwards. A hypnosis session of only fifteen minutes long resulted in these improvements. Not only that, but the cost of the surgery was less because these women spent less time in the operating room.
From my experience with clients, hypnosis can also significantly decrease healing time. Some clients I’ve worked with have healed much, much faster than expected. Not to mention the reduction of discomfort, pain, anxiety, and fear they feel. Because of all this, I would recommend hypnosis for anyone who plans to undergo surgery.
