The Use of Hypnosis for Medical Procedures

October 18th, 2011 Comments Off on The Use of Hypnosis for Medical Procedures

Hypnosis is often used instead of, or in conjunction with anesthesia, for a variety of medical procedures. In this report, which appeared on the CBS Health Watch segment of the Early Show, hypnotherapist Alex Lenkel volunteers to go under the knife for a surgical procedure on his hand, completely free of anesthesia.

Dental hypnosis is also very popular, and can aide patients who suffer anxiety in the dentist’s chair in addition to reducing or completely eliminating pain. Hypnosis is a great advantage for those allergic to Novocain, those who suffer with needle phobias, and those who suffer with hemophilia.

It is also becoming more and more popular to use hypnosis during childbirth, and yes, it is possible to have a completely painless childbirth!

The advantages to using hypnosis in lieu of anesthesia include financial savings, less risk due to decreased medication in your system, and most importantly, for surgery patients it reduces the need for painkillers, relieves grogginess and speeds recovery as this article shows:

While this is great news if you are contemplating a surgical procedure, or you have a dental phobia and you need to have work done, you don’t need to be in either of these categories to take advantage of the benefits offered by hypnosis.

At Intuitive Hypnosis, in Portland, Oregon, I work with clients on a variety of issues including pain management. Hypnosis is often a last resort for many clients after trying surgery and/or medication for painful conditions. Hypnosis can bring a great deal of relief to those suffering from chronic or acute painful conditions.
