At my hypnosis office, I work under physician referral and supervision for conditions of a medical nature. For example, pain, hypertension, anesthesia and psychiatric conditions such as psychogenic paralysis, pain, or conversion disorders.
At the Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services Inc., I usually make the contact with your physician and get the medical referral. If you do not have a physician, we can recommend a doctor that is knowledgeable in working with a hypnotherapist.
Hypnosis For Chronic Pain Management
For chronic pain management, you can expect to meet with a hypnotist that will help and guide you into hypnosis. Help you experience the affects of hypnosis induced pain reduction. Then you will be taught self-hypnosis so that you can create the reduction of pain yourself. Individual results vary depending on the origin of the pain. Sometimes the pain is eliminated, or reduced, or reduced to the point where less medication is required, leading to a higher quality of life.
Hypnosis For Stress and Anxiety Relief
Hypnosis for stress and anxiety reduction, is a wonderful way to begin to move toward health and healing. Stress and anxiety are one of the greatest friends of disease. Through learning self-hypnosis and other hypnotherapeutic techniques, you can begin to feel a lifting of every day stress and anxiety or reduction of stress and anxiety related to illness. Hypnosis for stress relief is also recommended for caregivers.
Hypnosis has also been demonstrated effective in many other medical situations, including some skin conditions.
Hypnosis For Managing Depression Associated with Chronic Illness
One commonly overlooked area, where hypnosis can be very useful in medical situations is dealing with the mental health of the patient. A depressed patient does not seem to heal or bounce back from illness like the patient that is mentally healthy. Hypnosis, being a brief psychotherapy can help the depressed patient regain their will to live or recover.
