Publisher's Summary

A 2007 study conducted at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York City showed that a single 15 minute hypnosis session prior to breast surgery significantly reduced pain and anxiety, reduced the amount of anesthesia needed during surgery, and shortened the length of the surgery itself. Numerous articles in medical journals such as Lancet support the efficacy of hypnosis in shortening surgical time and stabilizing vital signs during surgery.

In this hypnosis program, longtime paramedic and clinical hypnotist Maggie Staiger combines calming imagery of a lakeside dawn with suggestions for healing, relaxing and remaining stable during the operation itself, and for understanding the surgery as a tool for healing rather than a traumatic event.

Just the help I needed

Maggie Staiger's voice, pace, and messages were the very thing I needed to prepare for a surgical procedure without fear or trepidation. Practicing relaxation with this audiobook helped quell anxiety and keep my mind and body relaxed.

Having experienced the powerful effect of hypnotherapy through Marie Mongan's hypnobirth method, I felt that Maggie Staiger's approach was compatible, and, for me, this turned out to be true.

While healing from the procedure, I am also listened to Ms. Staiger's other titles, "Healing a Part of the Body" and "Sleep Through the Night". Practicing hypnosis has enhanced my comfort and well-being, undoubtedly facilitating faster healing. I'm so glad I found her books.
