Today, Nick & Joanna will discuss the use of hypnotherapy pre, peri and post-operatively.

Where does consciousness go when patients are anesthetised? Is there an awareness that is awake and present when a patient is seemingly asleep? Are there patients who can recall the surgery, or even the conversations that occur in the OR? 

Can the power of suggestion be used to effect surgical outcome and healing time? 

Can the relaxation response help sugery go more smoothly, or possibly decrease the need for anesthesia/analgesia, and/or limit post op complications?

Can everyone be hypnotized effectively?  

We will be talking about these questions and more, so tune in for what promises to be an enlightening discussion about the power of the mind-body connection and how we can use it to our advantage if we need to have surgery.
