Cancer Treatment Hypnosis - Interview and Demonstration of Hypnotherapy Post-Surgery






Imagery Works as Well as Actual Practice


Researchers from the Department of OBGYN at Texas A&M University Health Sciences Center tested the effects of varying the amount of physical practice vs. mental imagery rehearsal for training medical students to perform basic surgical procedures. Using a sample of 65 second-year medical students, 3 randomized groups received either: (1) 3 sessions of physical practice on suturing a pig's foot; (2) 2 sessions of physical practice and 1 session of mental imagery rehearsal; or (3) 1 session of physical practice and 2 sessions of imagery rehearsal.


All participants then performed a surgery on a live rabbit in the operating theater of a veterinary college under approved conditions. Analysis of variance was applied to pre- and post-treatment ratings of surgical performance.

The findings showed that physical practice followed by mental imagery rehearsal was statistically equal to additional physical practice. The researchers conclude that initial physical practice, followed by mental imagery rehearsal, may be a cost-effective method of training medical students in learning basic surgical skills.

What we're finding is this dominance play continues to into our adulthood. Furthermore, the perpetrators are often people who have been previously bullied and never received adequate counseling or other psychological care. Yes, victims of bullying often...

Enjoy dogs with out fear

I could hardly think of what life would be like without the company of man’s best friend. The bond that comes from the deep understanding between a person and their dog (or dogs) is a unique relationship. Yet, to many people even the thought of being around one makes them very uncomfortable and may even evoke feelings of horror.

A fear of dogs may have been installed during your youth. It could have started due to a warning from a loved one or may even be due to an incident where you were attacked or felt threatened. Like any fear or phobia, this fear is a learned behavior that...

The Difference that Self-Confidence Brings

I want to start out by saying that it is okay for you to read this article. I know that you will get something out of it and that you are capable of reading it in its entirety. Of course, most people already know this. Clearly they don’t need my permission. However, there are others who seem to always doubt that they have the capability – and the right – to face life’s obstacles no matter how small and insignificant.
