Life After Cancer

Cancer’s journey is tough, but life after cancer is often tougher. Post-treatment, survivors face numerous emotional and physical challenges. But there’s hope. Enter hypnosis.

Navigating Emotional Aftermath

Cancer treatments may end, but emotional scars remain. Fears of recurrence loom. Side effects persist. Changes to body image confront. Sometimes, survivor’s guilt weighs heavily. Transitioning from “patient” to “survivor” is overwhelming.

How Hypnosis Helps

Hypnosis isn’t just for entertainment. It’s a therapeutic tool. It can alleviate post-cancer anxiety and stress. Hypnosis promotes relaxation and healing. It addresses body image concerns. It even helps in reframing the “patient” to “survivor” transition.

The Science Behind Hypnosis

Many studies validate hypnosis’s effectiveness. Hypnosis taps into the subconscious. It rewires negative thought patterns. Result? A stronger, more positive mental state. Essential for healing after cancer.

Conclusion: A New Tool for Healing

Life after cancer is a new journey. It’s filled with challenges. But tools like hypnosis offer survivors a path forward. Embracing such tools can make the journey smoother and more empowering.

Hypnosis as a Therapeutic Tool

Hypnosis is not just a stage trick or a fleeting trend. It’s a well-researched therapeutic method that helps individuals reach a state of deep relaxation and heightened suggestibility, allowing them to address and manage various concerns more effectively.

  1. Emotional Healing:
    The trauma of battling cancer can leave survivors with anxiety, depression, or PTS. Hypnosis can help individuals process these emotions, replacing fear and anxiety with a sense of calm and confidence.
  2. Body Image and Self-Esteem:
    Surgeries and treatments can change the way survivors view their bodies. Through hypnosis, survivors can work towards accepting, loving, and embracing their transformed selves.
  3. Fear of Recurrence:
    One of the most pervasive fears among survivors is that of the cancer returning. Hypnosis can help manage this fear, allowing survivors to live in the present without the constant shadow of what-ifs.
  4. Physical Healing:
    While the cancer may be gone, side effects and pain can linger. Hypnosis has been shown to help with pain management, and it can also assist survivors in achieving better sleep and relaxation.
  5. Re-establishing Identity:
    Cancer can shift one’s identity. With hypnosis, survivors can reclaim their sense of self, separating their identity from the disease and embracing their new life chapter.

Moving Forward with Hypnosis

For those considering hypnosis as part of their post-cancer journey, please note that many cancer survivors have found hypnosis to be a valuable resource in navigating life after cancer.

Life after cancer is a testament to human resilience and the indomitable spirit to thrive. With tools like hypnosis, survivors have the opportunity not just to move on but to lead enriched, fulfilled lives, celebrating each day as the gift it truly is.

Since 1997, I have helped many people in all stages of cancer. People in my private practice, and at Peninsula Cancer Center in Poulsbo, WA and Cancer Pathways in Seattle found that hypnosis for cancer to be a valuable resource.

Hypnosis, Meditation, and Relaxation for Pain

Research shows that medical hypnosis can help with both sudden (acute) and long-term (chronic) pain from cancer, burns, and rheumatoid arthritis. It may also ease the anxiety some people feel before surgery.

When researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York analyzed 18 studies, they found moderate to large pain-relieving effects from hypnosis, supporting its use for pain management.

Life After Cancer

By: Shay Moraga

It’s been 2,259 days since my oncologist told me I no longer had cancer. When I stop to think about each day, it still brings tears to my eyes and butterflies to my belly. I have learned so much about who I am as a person, and how I want to show up in the world before I die.

After cancer, I soon realized that there was little understanding of what someone goes through after cancer. No one talks about it. No one teaches you how you may or may not feel. Like cancer, each person has their own experience. Some of us navigate perfectly fine and can go on with life as before. Some of us fall into deep states of anxiety, guilt and depression, while others find a middle ground in between it all.
