Posted by on Feb 6, 2013 in BLOG: The Life Hypnotic, News | 0 comments

An interesting article in the New York Times online, February 6, 2013, focuses on research into why some people thrive on stress and competition and others do not: “Stress turns out to be far more complicated than we’ve assumed, and far more under our control than we imagine.

Yesterday was Veterans’ Day. That’s America’s day to honor those who have served this country as members of the armed forces.

Hypnosis can be useful before, during and after surgery. Hypnotherapy used before and after an operation has been found to calm people, cause them to need less anesthesia and make them more comfortable afterward. Because of this, it can shorten the length of the hospital stay — something that makes patients AND insurance companies pretty happy. Hypnosis can be used instead of anesthesia during an operation. That use is usually reserved these days for people who are allergic to the common...
