Hypnosis can be a powerful tool prior to surgery, during surgery as well as the post operative phases. Before surgery, hypnosis can help to reduce stress, anxiety and fears by helping to achieve a more positive, comfortable state. Prior to surgery, it is important to maintain the health and well being of your physical and emotional body by working on healthy eating habits, smoking cessation, getting enough exercise and sleep. During surgery, hypnosis can be effective for reducing the amount of anesthesia, infections, bleeding, and complications and thus a quicker recovery.
