Man Braves Surgery with the Help of Hypnosis

(KCPW News) A Salt Lake City hypnotherapist celebrated World Hypnotism Day by sitting through a two-hour operation on his leg Tuesday morning with just a local anesthetic and the power of his mind. KCPW’s Whittney Evans reports.

  1. I am a retired Nurse Anesthetist as well as a Hypnosis Instructor.

    I did the same thing for my hernia surgery and my dental implant surgery. The doctors kept on asking me how I was doing. The endodontist said I was more sedated than their patients who received sedation.

You matter!
