hypnosis conferenceSelf Hypnosis for Successful Surgery and Recovery

Saturday, March 23, 2019
Presentation: 10:30 – 11:20 am


This will be an overview of an approach to preparing oneself/clients for surgery or a procedure, or even for living more comfortably with a chronic condition. Ideas for creation of suggestions/auto-suggestions that foster healing will be offered. The presenter’s own personal experience with surgery and recovery will be described and offered as an example of what such an approach may look like.

    • Learn the importance of having a working knowledge of the condition/procedure
    • Learn that one can be playful with the imaginal creation of “healing assistants”, which may even serve to improve the efficacy of these metaphorical aides.
    • Learn the benefit of, and an approach to, making all individuals concerned allies in the goal toward health and healing.
