The Integration of Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy and Targeted Medical Hypnosis
in the Surgical/Emergency Medicine Milieu
Robert B. Speigel*
Abstract: Hypnosis and hypnotherapy, and specifically Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy are shown to be effective interventions for the mind-body treatment of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual injury, disease, and symptoms. Hundreds of highly trained mental health professionals practice as Certified Heart-Centered Hypnotherapists treating thousands of patients all around the world every day.
This paper reviews an impressive body of knowledge regarding Targeted Medical Hypnosis, and specifically digital audio delivered medical hypnosis, demonstrating its effectiveness in directly intervening with specific physiologic processes and modifying important physical responses during traditional medical intervention. The author differentiates the use of Heart- Centered Hypnotherapy and Targeted Medical Hypnosis in the treatment of mind-body injury and disease, and proposes a specific, convenient, efficient and low cost technology for the use of Targeted Medical Hypnosis interventions in the surgical/emergency medicine milieu.
