Serious illness and end-of-life choices and medical decisions have complex psychological and social components and consequences; these decisions are often stressful and have significant impact on suffering and the quality of living and dying. Hypnosis offers a way to move forward with less stress and with positive impact on the quality of recovery, living, and dying.
Serious illness hypnosis — "There is robust evidence of the efficacy of medical hypnosis exists for reduction of pain and emotional stress, duration of interventions, drug consumption during medical interventions, and reduction of irritable bowel symptoms." ~ The Efficacy, Safety and Applications of Medical Hypnosis (Dr. Winfried Hauser, et al., 2016)
End-of-life hypnosis offers an exceptionally focused, unique supportive care approach. It can be a powerful complementary therapy for individuals nearing end-of-life and while not a cure for any disease or illness, it addresses the mind-body concerns of the dying in a non-medical and holistic manner.
How is hypnosis conducted?
Hypnosis is performed by a trained practitioner who uses verbal cues to create mental images, whereby a state of calm and relaxation is induced to help the patient to cope better with anxiety or pain.
