Milwaukee Hypnotherapist Hosts Mastectomy Meditation
Saturday, October 27th, at Mayfair Mall
Rick Paddock to provide free medical meditation seminar
for those diagnosed with breast cancer at Mayfair Mall from 11:30am to 1:00pm
(Milwaukee, WI – October 10, 2012) Local hypnotherapist Rick Paddock, from the Milwaukee Hypnosis & Wellness Center, will present a free seminar demonstrating how meditation can reduce pain and complications, as well as shorten recovery time following surgery on Saturday, October 27th at Mayfair Mall. Admission is free and those preparing for, or recovering from mastectomy surgery are welcome to attend. More information is available by visiting MilwHypnosis.com.
“We want to show people how they can take an active & effective role in preparing for, and recovering from mastectomy surgery by learning some basic meditation skills that anyone can do”, said Rick Paddock, a hypnotherapist working in Milwaukee.
According to a University of Wisconsin School of Nursing study, surgery patients who learned simple relaxation and meditation techniques stayed in the hospital an average of 1.5 days fewer than those in a control group. Results also included faster recovery from surgery, fewer complications and reduced post-surgical pains. And these findings were consistent in 191 studies.
According to the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, hypnosis is a natural state of "inner absorption, concentration and focused attention" that most healthy people experience several times a day. "As hypnotherapists we often use this state of focused concentration to help people overcome bad habits such as smoking or overeating, but these same skills can be taught as meditation to anyone to help relieve pain and shorten recovery times after surgery," says Paddock. “These simple meditation skills, when used for just minutes at a time each day, can have a profound effect on anyone’s quality of life.”
As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and inspired by a family member recently diagnosed with breast cancer, Paddock decided that a free seminar teaching medical meditation was a simple yet powerful way to share processes that anyone can learn and use.
“In my practice, I help people overcome smoking, overeating, stress, anxiety, as well as physical and mental pain with hypnotherapy,"
