For reducing anxiety
(Pre-) Before-Surgery

Before(Pre) surgery hypnosis :

How the induction works : It is reducing your anxiety by letting you vividly imagine your own lucky ending movie of what will happen. We will start with the end and move to the start, filling the movie with good stuff. And when you have already mentally rehearsed the operation process many times there is not so much to be anxious about. We have investigated the spots that you were most anxious about and in that moment of time we have added special stuff of your own picking that makes you feel comforted, relaxed and happy instead of anxious.

It sounds easy and it is, when you know how to do that, because the anxiety is all in your mind, it is not in your foot, is it, or your toe, or in my mind, it is your anxiousness and you can of course change it. It is just an idea in your head of some anticipated imagined situation in the future, that might never occure, that makes you feel anxious now, at this moment. Some people are in a hurry aren't they, why wait, lets feel anxious and bad now for something that probably never happens.

Why do pre-surgery stuff matter? If you think that you will have pain, maybe you will need more painkillers, and longer stay after surgery.

"We all know that anxiety increases the chances of postoperative pain, postoperative analgesic consumption, and also hospital stay and recovery," researcher Haleh Saadat, MD, tells WebMD.

Medication or Hypnosis? I don't know in your country but I have seen that some receive relaxing medication a short time before (maybe one hour) for relaxation. Still I have not seen any medication about calming anxious patients facing surgery.

So this induction is for you!

Repeated use of this script will significantly effect rates of healing.

Research during a long time shows that psychologically prepared patients for surgery have better outcomes. Hypnosis, with or without anesthesia, can reduce anxiety and pain and accelerate healing. Hypnotically prepared patients have shorter hospital stays, less post-operative pain and nausea, use fewer pain medications, suffer less anxiety and blood loss relative patients receiving routine care.

The inductions are combining your imagination creating a safe effective way to reduce stress and relieve pain. You will get into your own inner and getting the best frame of mind for surgery. You will have less pre-operative anxiety, less post-operative discomfort and accelarated healing. Three inductions cover pre-surgery reducing stress and anxiety, post surgery to further promote healing and recovery. And the Super placebo pill.

You may choose to believe me and going for a great time or not to believe me and let your unconscious learn anyway by listening. Sometimes it is better to just do it, listen and relax.

Medical hypnosis : Major medical journals are beginning to recognize hypnosis as a legitimate clinical tool, citing proof positive that it can help ease chronic pain, lessen the side effects of chemotherapy, counteract anxiety and sleep disorders, and more.  The following medical hypnosis inductions are not intended for any kind of replacement of proper medical treatments. The following medical hypnosis inductions can act as a tool for your mental wellbeing and induce positive mental perspectives, views, emotions, feelings. There is no body and mind split, it is a well known fact that the brain is a part of the same body.

Enqvist B (1996). Pre-surgical hypnosis and suggestions in anesthesia. Thesis, Karolinska Institutet.

In a medical setting patients are often dependent, vulnerable and easily influenced by information, which may be interpreted in a way that creates anxiety and expectations of pain and complications. Information is often forgotten. Time can be experienced as very short or long, and there may be a feeling of unreality.
Regression, time distortion, dissociation, suggestibility and amnesia are other expressions for these pheno- mena which can also be recognized as characteristics of hypnosis. Thus hypnosis and altered states of consciousness may be part of the daily clinical routines.

This increased suggestibility is seldom systematically utilized for a beneficial influence. In the present thesis presurgical hypnosis and suggestions in anesthesia by means of audio tape were used with the following aims:
- To give the patients better control of anxiety, pain and rehabilitation.
- To influence the patients in a beneficial way regarding bleeding, oedema and rehabilitation.
- To use therapeutic suggestions during anesthesia alone or in combination with preoperative hypnosis to improve peri- and post-operative behavior.

The audio tapes started with a hypnotic induction-relaxation. The suggestions given were adapted to resolve problems associated with the various surgical procedures. The audio tapes lasted for 20 minutes and daily listening was recommended during the week before surgery. Therapeutic suggestions during anesthesia by means of audio tape were also used to improve peri- and postoperative behavior. Hypnosis by means of listening to a "hypnosis tape" preoperatively alone or in combination with suggestions during anesthesia produced the following (significant) results compared to the control groups.


Studyl/ Hypnosis before maxillo-facial surgery performed in general anesthesia reduced peri-operative blood loss. The addition of suggestions during anesthesia did not increase the effects. Suggestions during anesthesia only lowered blood pressure and reduced the duration of hospital stay.


Study 2/ The combination of preoperative hypnosis and suggestions during anesthesia reduced postsurgical oedema and fever. Less anxiolytic medication was needed.


Study 3/ Hypnosis before surgical removal of wisdom teeth produced more calmness in the hypnosis group and reduced the postoperative analgesic requirements.


Study 4/
Hypnosis before breast reduction surgery reduced postoperative nausea, vomiting and consumption of analgesics.


Study 5/ The same suggestions as in the previous study given during anesthesia only, did not
influence postoperative nausea and vomiting in breast surgery.


Relaxation-hypnosis and instructions in stress reduction can influence factors like perioperative bleeding and postoperative swelling, nausea and vomiting. Pain medication can be reduced. The effects of suggestions given during anesthesia seem to be marginal. If the effects are due to increased calmness, improved expectations, posthypnotic suggestions, increased levels of plasma cortisol, or a combination of the above mentioned factors is not known.


Several of the effects shown in study 1-4 have been possible
to achieve with eg procedural information, increased care, behavior modification and/or cognitive therapy. Hypnotherapy has much in common with other sorts of therapy, and indications for the different preparatory methods are desirable, as well as a simple diagnostic tool to select the right patient to the right method.

Key-words: Hypnosis; anesthesia; preoperative; relaxation; stress reduction; maxillofacial surgery; breast surgery; wisdom teeth; blood loss; nausea; vomiting; pain; analgesics.

"By the way my mother-of-tongue is swedish and as I am born and raised close to the norwegian border my natural swedish dialect is a "singing" dialect"

Some people have detected this in my english and asked me about it.
I got a very cute remark that I treasure highly, somewhere in a forum, it goes "couldn't go through with it since he had me in constant hysteric laughter because of his crazy grammar and bad English".

So be warned! you may have a really good time, and that is bad isn't it.
Still, you know, WHY do people listen to them? Please think of other stuff or whatever, these are targeted to your unconscious not your conscious mind. Just relax, let your imagination work and wander off in a train of thoughts.

There are many stories, short and long with stuff like embedded commands, metaphors, and lots and lots of other stuff, the stories are only there for your unconscious mind making you associate and sometimes disassociate in your own fantasy

It is very probable because the nature of the stories are very ambiguous, and sentences that run into each other. Some sentences are not completed before the other sentence start. Your brain will probably present to you different fantasies from time to time when you listen to them. I don't have an inkling what you will be thinking about.

OBSERVE: The induction uses a way to put you faster into trance by adding two low frequencies that puts you into a theta mode. It works better if you use stereo headphones. (Theta wave - the normal brainwave of a person who is awake but relaxed)
