Medical Hypnosis for cancer

Medical Hypnosis is a viable option for cancer patients, who, once trained in self-hypnosis, may employ these techniques to manage a myriad symptoms.

I’ve been offering Medical Hypnosis for cancer since 1997. Medical Hypnosis is used to augment your professional medical treatment. It is not an alternative or replacement for professional medical care, but it does offer you the possibility of beneficial change even in difficult cases. Often this change can occur quickly.

I teach you self-hypnosis to empower you to manage a myriad of cancer symptoms and the side effects that can occur from cancer treatment. If you’d like, you may invite your partner, spouse or caregiver to participate in your sessions so that they too can benefit from the positive results of hypnosis and learn the hypnotic skills to support you.

If you’d like to know how you too can benefit from Medical Hypnosis, give me a call at (760) 219-8079 or send me an email. We can meet live online worldwide from your home, office, hotel or RV.

How Is Hypnosis Currently Used in Cancer Care?

Hypnosis has been specifically employed in the palliative care of cancer patients to reduce symptoms associated with radiation and chemotherapy, such as pain, nausea, fatigue, hot flashes, and sleep dysfunction. Length of hypnotic treatment varies depending on the nature and severity of the problem. Clinical hypnosis treatment for cancer patients may range from a single session to multiple sessions. In research, cancer patients undergoing clinical hypnotherapy typically receive approximately five sessions or more of clinical hypnosis, each involving a hypnotic induction and instruction in self-hypnosis. The practice of self-hypnosis helps patients achieve a relaxed, therapeutic, hypnotic state. Professionals serve as facilitators of self-hypnosis, often providing hypnosis audio recordings for patients to use between sessions.

Hypnosis is frequently offered in conjunction with other therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Research suggests that using a combination of hypnosis and CBT improved outcomes more than those achieved for at least 70% of patients who used CBT alone. Additionally, CBT techniques can be utilized in a hypnotic context by preceding the CBT technique with a hypnotic induction.
