Hypnosis to Treat Cancer’s Side Effects
Cancer centers around the world are using hypnosis to treat cancer’s side effects. Hypnosis can reduce side effects and stress for patients with cancer, and even substitute for anesthesia during some surgeries.
Lorenzo Cohen, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Palliative, Rehabilitation and Integrative Medicine and director of the Integrative Medicine Program at MD Anderson “believes that we are entering an era of less-invasive medical care, during which, he says, ‘“something like procedural hypnosis, that has this tremendous evidence base, is waiting there to be plucked up by different centers, where we know it will reduce pain and the use of post-operative pain medicine and opioids, in particular.”’
At Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore I’ve been supporting people living with cancer for many years in Seattle, on Bainbridge Island, at Peninsula Cancer Center and worldwide online.

“Hypnosis has been shown to be safe and effective, and can help patients with all types of cancer and for many different purposes, and there’s evidence of its value and efficacy.
Hypnosis is most commonly used to manage side effects of treatment — fatigue, nausea, pain and anxiety. Sessions usually start with a discussion of the patient’s diagnosis, treatment and struggles. Then, after guiding the patient into a state of hypnosis, the therapist offers suggestions to reduce stress or anxiety, or to help relieve symptoms. When the session is over, the patients are given a recording of it that they can use any time. Researchers have found these treatments to be decisively beneficial.
The strategy is so well-proven that the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, which develops clinical guidelines for standard cancer care, recommends hypnotherapy for fighting treatment-related fatigue and managing pain.”
