How to Reduce Anxiety before Surgery in San Diego, Del Mar, La Jolla

How to Reduce Anxiety before Surgery 

in San Diego, Del Mar, La Jolla 

by Kathleen Lisson, CMT, CLT

Are you anxious about an upcoming surgery?
Are you concerned about using pain medication after surgery?

There is a way to reduce your anxiety and your need for pain medication after your operation in San Diego, Del Mar or La Jolla. Earlier this year, I spent an amazing weekend learning from psychotherapist, researcher and Harvard Divinity School graduate Peggy Huddleston about how to share the proven techniques from her book Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster. 

Research conducted at Tufts University Medical Clinic, New England Baptist Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (A Harvard Medical School teaching hospital) shows that men and women following the protocol described in Huddleston's book had:

  • Less anxiety before surgery
  • Used less pain medication after surgery
  • Less irritability, insomnia, nightmares and loss of appetite after surgery

The entire protocol is explained in her book Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster and she offers a relaxation CD that makes the process very simple.

If you would like a more hands-on approach, I offer one hour group workshops free of charge at locations throughout San Diego, including:

Adams Avenue Integrative Health

If you would like to book a one-on-one private workshop, I can come to your home and guide you, step by step, through the process. This is an ideal choice if you need to be discreet about your upcoming surgery or would like to gather with several of your supporters and learn about the relaxation process as a group! The fee for the one hour private session in the comfort of your home is $125, and is part of my Back to Health Program for Plastic or Orthopedic Surgery Clients.
