Hypnosis helps children with cancer
Hypnosis helps children with cancer in a variety of ways. Kids with cancer not only have the trauma of a cancer diagnosis, they are being poked, prodded, spend countless hours in doctors offices and hospitals in addition to dealing with the challenges of treatment.
Children are naturals at hypnosis so it can be very effective helping them to relax and reduce stress. Cancer hypnosis can also help the immune system to work with treatments, reduce side effects, improve sleep and increase energy.
If you have a child that is living with cancer, please call or send me an email. We can meet online or in the Medical Dental Building in downtown Seattle or on Bainbridge Island.
Hypnosis could soothe the anxiety that children feel while undergoing cancer treatment, researchers say.
“Children who have cancer often face repeated painful and frightening procedures—the distress involved can lead to subsequent poor mental health and is often harder to deal with than the cancer itself for the young patient, their family and their staff,” Tamsin Ford, a child psychiatry professor at the University of Exeter Medical School in the U.K. told Newsweek in an email.
