Emergency Response

Emergency Response Training

Tailored to first responders, law enforcement officials, EMTs, paramedics and firefighters, our Emergency Response and Pain Control Hypnosis training teaches valuable techniques to help avoid shock in trauma cases and accident victims.

Specifically designed for emergency situations, these techniques enable us to distract and bypass the barriers of the conscious mind to deliver efficient suggestions, help avoid shock, block pain, decrease bleeding, boost the immune system, reduce the severity of injuries in burn victims and provide vital assistance to those in critical situations.

The nature of emergency in itself presents a unique combination of factors enabling the efficiency of a hypnotherapeutic approach.

The Anatomy of Emergency

One of the keys of successful hypnosis lies in the ability of the subject to concentrate. The victim of an injury is concentrating intensely. By so doing, they have already bypassed the analytical part of the mind, enabling direct access to the subconscious level of the mind. A person in a state of emergency has a heightened need and desire for help, along with a willingness to trust and believe in the possibility of receiving such help.

The ingredients for successful hypnosis, which in a typical, non-threatening situation, would take preparation and coaching to achieve, are gathered. Studies reveal direct hypnotic suggestions enable injured children to reduce the severity of bleeding. Substantial decreases in the severity of the burns in burn victims are also recorded when hypnotic suggestions are delivered within the first hour.
