Dr. David Spiegel: ‘Hypnosis is a way of enhancing people’s own control over their bodies and their consciousness… It’s a matter of teaching them how to restructure their approach to their problem and manage it better.'”

Are You Afraid of Needles? Self-Hypnosis Techniques Can Help!

Hypnosis for Medical IV’s and Needles and Blood Draws

http://www.allthingshealing.com

Seth-Deborah Roth writes: “Working in the medical world, I get to see many situations where simple, easy, hypnosis could be used. There are everyday medical procedures that frighten many patients. Such is getting your blood taken or even getting a shot. Some patients get so frightened that they actually can faint. Sometimes people actually get so frightened that their veins constrict and get smaller, therefore, making it even more difficult to start an IV line. Some people will never go to a doctor because of this fear. Hypnosis affords a simple perfect solution to this problem that you can carry with you anywhere.”
