Stress and anxiety usually go hand in hand with medical procedures. My guess is that we’ve all  had the experience of getting our blood pressure checked in the doctor’s office and had our blood pressure go up. Hypnosis can help reduce stress and anxiety. You can learn how to hypnotize yourself with self-hypnosis and stay calm and relaxed.

Tuesday night I gave a talk at the Peninsula Cancer Center in Poulsbo, Washington, about using hypnosis and other stress reduction techniques to manage the stress and anxiety of medical procedures.

Having a medical procedure that is by its very nature intrusive can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. Researchers have determined a connection between the amount of anxiety or fear you have going into a medical procedure and your level of pain and recovery time afterwards. The more relaxed you are, the more quickly you’re likely to recover. Some studies have even shown that the amount of pain you feel three months after an operation is related to your stress and anxiety going into a medical procedure.

Studies show that hypnotherapy is a highly effective form of reducing pain and anxiety for people undergoing surgery and other medical procedures. Hypnosis leads to improved recovery after the surgery due to less anxiety  and pain associated with the procedure.
