Parasympathetic activation in cancer care
and some practical ways to achieve this through hypnosis


A talk by Paul Byrne

Although modern chemotherapy and radiotherapy is more specialised and efficient than ever before, those undergoing cancer treatment may develop anticipatory nausea, vomiting, general anxiety, insomnia, nerve damage, loss of appetite, pain, irritability, breathing difficulties, excessive wind, digestive issues, pre and post-operative anxiety, headaches, poor concentration and other individual symptoms.

These symptoms can not only be upsetting to the patient, but the emotional stress they cause can also have a negative impact on the functionality of the immune system.

Paul Byrne has developed a therapeutic approach that places cancer-care in a manageable context for the patient. At the September 2011 meeting Paul explained howhe uses hypnosis to help patients explore ways to change their relationships with their illnesses and participate in aiding their own recovery.
