Hypnosis is Being Used to Help Kids Get Through Their Cancer Treatments

This morning I came across a FOX news report regarding a young boy, Anthony, who has been using hypnosis to get through his cancer treatment since being diagnosed with a brain tumor. This young man was suffering PTSD and insomnia as a result of his treatment.  Anthony’s doctor utilized hypnosis, which is approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Anthony learned self-hypnosis and has learned to turn down his pain. His parents report that he is now a healthier and happier child who is even doing better in school.

Here is a link to the FOX video about Anthony:

I’m frequently asked to work with children. They are wonderful clients. Children easily enter trance and through the use of their powerful creative imaginations are responsive to beneficial changes in their lives. They look so happy, relaxed, and relieved when their sessions are completed.
