You might not realize this, but you are using hypnosis every time you see a patient. It's just that you haven’t been formally trained in how to use it effectively for patient care.
If you want to get better results treating and managing chronic pain as well as decrease the risk of opioid addiction, you need to learn how to make your words the narcotic, instead of writing a prescription.
I can train you how to do that using the MindWise Protocol for Drug-Free Pain Management .
Medical hypnosis is not new. As early as the 19th Century, physicians were the first to use it in patient care, and it has been backed by a century of scientific studies published in medical journals. Just do a PubMed search, and you’ll see hundreds of articles on its use for IBS, stress and anxiety, headaches, cancer, and pain management.
The American Medical Association (AMA), the British Medical Association (BMA), the American Psychological Association (APA), and the National Institute of Health (NIH) have all recognize hypnosis as an appropriate medical modality for a variety of conditions, and major university hospitals and cancer centers use hypnosis on a regular basis as an adjunct for patient care. Yes, there is a CPT code, and insurance companies reimburse for the hypnosis office visit.
A Brief History of Hypnosis in Medicine
1892: The BMA was among the first professional organizations to investigate hypnotherapy as a potential treatment.
1958: The AMA stated that “Hypnosis has a recognized place in the medical armamentarium and is a useful technique in the treatment of certain illnesses when employed by qualified medical and dental personnel.”
1960: The APA followed the AMA stance on hypnosis.
1961: The AMA Council on Mental Health recommended that medical students and doctors complete 144 hours of hypnotherapy training.
1995: The NIH validated the effectiveness of hypnosis for chronic pain in cancer, IBS, and tension headaches.
Hypnosis is simply an inwardly-focused awareness used to bypass the Conscious Mind and access the Subconscious Mind, which runs the physiology of the body. If a person can follow instructions, they can be hypnotized.
Everyone goes in and out of hypnosis throughout the day and no matter what people might think, everyone has been hypnotized. Your very first hypnotist was your mother when she rocked you in her arms as an infant, singing you a lullaby.
Now, even though a hypnotist might use the word “sleep” to guide a person into hypnosis, hypnosis is not sleep. A person actually has an increased sense of awareness while in hypnosis, whereas in sleep they do not. All of the myths and misconceptions surrounding hypnosis are false and based on Hollywood's portrayal of hypnotists. No one can be hypnotized against their will. A hypnotist cannot make a person do anything that is in a violation of their morals. The person must be a willing participant; therefore, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The hypnotist is just the guide.
