The use of mindfulness-based interventions for cancer recovery has grown exponentially throughout health care. Some of the most challenging aspects of living with cancer, loss of control, uncertainty and constant change can be mitigated when you learn mindfulness hypnosis. The emotion-regulation strategies practiced in mindfulness hypnosis help to prevent worry about the future and rumination over past events, and allow people to live more fully in the present moment, regardless of what lies ahead. In this study, people in the mindfulness group improved the most on outcomes of stress and mood disturbance, having less anxiety and depressive symptom.
I will be presenting on mindfulness hypnosis at 5 different Navigating Cancer Survivorship workshops throughout Puget Sound in March, April and May.
Mindfulness-based cancer recovery
Mindfulness and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MSRB)
Mindfulness is often defined as present-moment nonjudgemental awareness. This is contrasted to typical experience that may involve ruminating over events of the past, planning or worrying about the future, or analyzing and judging current experience. Mindfulness is both a way of being in the world, and a discrete practice. Mindfulness practice can take the form of formal meditation or informal practices, such as simply remembering to be present as one undertakes day-to-day tasks. The practice of mindfulness through formal meditation and informal practice ideally leads to a more mindful way of being in the world. This heightened sense of presence leads to a cascade of salutary effects that transfer across all life domains.

Psychosocial interventions providing stress reduction and emotional support resulted in a trend toward telomere length maintenance in distressed breast cancer survivors compared with decreases in usual care. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the potential for short-term interventions to affect this important biomarker, but the clinical implications of the finding require further exploration.
