Integrative Medical Hypnosis
Numerous studies and clinical trials support the use of hypnosis
as adjunct therapy for a variety of medical conditions

Clients may desire help with sensory changes such as taste or smell, swallowing medicine or relieving nausea. For some it may be the courage to tolerate their next treatment, so changing the mental and emotional perceptions of those treatments can be beneficial.
Perceptual change can be advantageous to daily tasks such as tolerating a CPAP or an injection, but also to more invasive or challenging treatments such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
