Feel confident, calm, and in control.
Are you eager to calm anxiety and worries about your upcoming surgery?
Mind-Body Practices Can Help
There is plenty of valid research confirming that mind-body techniques can help ease your pre-operative anxiety, reduce sedation meds needed, shorten procedure time, reduce surgical blood loss, reduce the length of hospital stay, and enhance wound healing. They can also reduce post-operative pain and reduce medication use. Wow! It’s incredible that a non-pharmacologic treatment can have these dramatic effects. Even more valuable is how low-cost these techniques can be to learn. By investing in just a few private consultation sessions, you can be completely independent to practice these techniques on your own without relying on a medical provider.
Your Brain is Adaptable
It is clearly understood that your brain changes in response to the experiences it encounters. You naturally have a negativity bias to look out for potentially dangerous experiences and avoid pain. It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious and fearful about your surgery outcome. There are simple and effective ways to teach your brain to regulate these thoughts and emotions so you are more in control and feel confident walking (or wheeling) into surgery. Brain changes take consistent practice, but in as little as three five-minute sessions a day over a few weeks you can feel entirely ready and optimistic about your upcoming surgery.
Customized to Meet Your Needs
Dr. Frazee will discuss your personal fears and hopes about your surgery and customize your home practice to specifically address your physical and emotional needs. After your specific practices have been created, she will record your practices using her voice on your cell phone or send you mp3 files to download. Expect for your mindful surgery prep to be effortless. You will get comfortable, turn on your device and follow her guided imagery and breathing instructions while your stress melts away.
Take Back Your Power
Your surgery may or may not be optional. Often patients are told they must have a surgical procedure given the circumstances. This can lead to feeling vulnerable, powerless and helpless. By choosing to work with Dr. Frazee to develop your personal mindful surgery prep program, you are reclaiming your power. You are not sitting back and nervously counting the days until the surgery. No! You are taking action to manage stress while creating positive inner feelings about your surgery. You can arrive at your surgery feeling confident, calm, and optimistic about the outcome!
