Healing After Surgery – Hypnotherapy & Recovery

One of the most daunting challenges faced by surgery patients is not the procedure itself, but the period immediately following the operation. During this time, the body needs to recover and heal. This time is often characterised by pain and stress as we regain our strength during the post-surgery phase. Hypnotherapy has been shown to aid the healing process, speed up recovery times, and alleviate pain in the days after leaving the operating theatre.

When we wake up in the post-operative ward to the smiling faces of family and health professionals, we’re naturally relieved at the realisation that the operation is over. In the hours and days following the procedure, however, pain and discomfort invariably set in, as the body gets to work healing itself. Organs, muscles and skin begin to naturally repair the damaged tissue as the immune system fights off any infections that might sneak into our bodies. This post-operative phase is a crucial period in the surgery cycle and by far the longest.

Post-Surgery Recovery is Tough

Our bodies are pumped full of antibiotics, pain meds and anti-inflammatories, designed to assist the recovery process and get us back up on our feet. But recovery takes time, and during this painful and uncomfortable period, our minds take strain. While we’re bed-ridden and away from home, anxiety and fear can complicate the wound healing process, leading to a longer recovery phase, higher costs, and stress.

Medicine Isn’t the Only Answer

While medicine can only do so much to alleviate our anguish, too many people still rely on pain medication to manage these difficulties, often leading to an unhealthy dependence on drugs. The same goes for those who have just received surgery. Doctors are obliged to reduce your medication following surgery, minimising the side effects caused by these chemicals, and allowing the body to recover its strength. Once this happens, the painful reconstruction of your cells and tissue begins to dominate the post-operative experience. Spending an extended period in the hospital can also lead to expensive medical bills, increasing stress, compounded with the pain associated with recovery.

How Hypnotherapy Can Help

Hypnotherapy is a powerful aid in taking control of your pain and accelerating recovery. It has been well documented as an effective treatment for post-op trauma, manging more than just pain. A variety of studies of surgery patients undergoing hypnotherapy have shown exciting results. In one case, observed patients were divided into three groups: Patients who received support from a psychologist, those who underwent post-operative hypnotherapy, and those who received no additional therapy at all. The results were outstanding. The patients who received hypnotherapy not only recovered quicker, but photo analysis also showed significant scar reduction in those who received hypnotherapy, versus those who received psychological support only or no therapy at all1. Beyond this, the added benefits of post-operative hypnotherapy extend to putting the mind into a calm and relaxed state, allowing patients to overcome the psychological trauma of the surgery experience and its associated anxiety.

The Mind can Heal

The power of the mind allows us to take control of our bodies, empowering us to quicken our healing consciously. While the science is still in its infancy, more and more evidence is emerging of our ability to influence what happens inside us. Hypnotherapy allows us to tap into the human will and effect change on ourselves. Through positive thoughts, affirmations and deep relaxation, our subconsciousness can be harnessed and put to good use in helping us to heal.

From pain management to accelerating recovery times, Hypnocare can teach you to prime your body for a surgical procedure and then take control of your recovery afterwards. By using various tried and tested hypnotherapy techniques, Hypnocare’s therapists can guide you through each phase of the surgery process.

Here's what our clients have to say

Have been seeing linda for a few months now and has changed my life for the better greatly! I was sceptical at first but Linda made me feel so comfortable and she really is great at what she does My issue was with alcohol and no longer is an issue for me. Thanks again Linda

I was a habitual worrier. If all was ok my mind would search for the next problem. I came out of my second session with Linda and this had disappeared. I felt light. I had a realisation that whatever my situation, I had a choice. It was highly liberating and has persevered. I ended up studying hypnosis and have a new respect for what Linda helped me achieve. She's genuine and down to earth. Thanks Linda

Linda is a very experienced practitioner in the field. I feel very lucky to have had support from such a seasoned professional. Thank you for all you have done to help me progress Linda. It is much appreciated.

It’s been 8 weeks smoke free and the idea of picking up a cigarette is so unappealing I now sometimes wonder how I was ever a smoker. My skin is better, I'm not carrying around guilt every day, I don't stink, I'm not as anxious, basically I'm so happy it's all behind me and count my lucky stars I don't have to live that smoker life anymore. I think I was really ready to quit this time, and can't thank Linda enough for helping me make that happen. I didn't know if I had the strength to quit for good, but the session we did reminded me just how strong I am. Thank you millions and millions Linda, that one afternoon in your chair has changed my life and helped me kick a habit I've struggled with for over 10 years. Thank you so very much 🙏🙏

In 2008 I visited Linda in her Subiaco clinic to treat a psychological tick involving constant jaw clenching/clicking (probably around 200 times per day - for years). After just 1 session it stopped dead immediately - 100%. It has now remained a forgotten habit for 9 years... had I not gone to her, I would have probably developed an arthritic jaw by now!

Wow! There are no words that can really express my transformation after a few sessions with Linda. When I initially came to see Linda, I was suffering from anxiety and depression from a number of traumatic experiences I had been through in recent years. My anxiety and depression had started impacting my work, relationships and health. I averaged 2 HRS of sleep a night and sat on my couch every painfully stricken day, debilitated by everything that was going on. After my first session, I drove out of Linda’s office feeling light as a feather; I slept like a baby that night and signed up to a gym. By my 3rd session, I was comfortable with speaking to a group of people, I was sleeping regularly and had a huge motivation to go to the gym six days a week. Not only is my life on track, I am following my dreams. Things that I promised myself I would do one day, I am already doing. What stood out for me, was that Linda’s work taught my inner being to help myself, rather than rely on other people to help me find my way. Linda’s work not only instantaneously helped me, the effects of Linda’s work has unfolded over the last 3 months. Thank you Linda. You are truly a blessing.
