Procedural Hypnosis At The Abbey
REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY
This is a technique to help patients use their internal resources and focused attention to have a comfortable experience of any medical or dental procedure they wish to undertake.
What is Procedural Hypnosis?
This is NOT hypnotherapy in its usual sense. We teach a ‘self-hypnosis’ technique to help you to deal with any stresses and anxieties that occur.
This gives the patient a skill they can use on their own for future procedures in any setting. It is a useful asset to have.
The Benefits of Procedural Hypnosis
Having learnt the self hypnosis technique, patients can extend its use to help them:
- deal with stress and anxieties that occur
- manage chronic pain
- improve their compliance with wearing dental, occlusal and sleep apnoea appliances
