Hearing the words, “You need surgery” can trigger elevated levels of anxiety and fear. And if you live alone, it can be a particularly vulnerable time.
As a certified life coach, certified clinical hypnotherapist, and certified in Peggy Huddleston’s Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster™ workshop, I serve as your surgery coach to guide and assist you on how to best prepare for surgery, to reduce anxiety before surgery, how to use less pain medication and to heal faster.
Hundreds of research studies have documented that people who prepare for surgery have less pain, fewer complications and recover faster.
My inspiration to help others prepare for surgery was my own experience undergoing a total hip replacement. My “aha” moment came after reading Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster – a Guide to Body Mind Techniques by Huddleston. I followed the five-step mind-body program using visualization and healing statements among other empowering techniques. I not only felt peaceful and empowered before surgery, I used very little pain medication following surgery and recovered quickly. My surgeon and his staff were stunned at my quick recovery.
With this mind-body approach, I will guide you to enhance your healing as you prepare for any type of minor or major surgery or medical or dental procedure.
