Peggy Huddleston’s

Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster™ Workshop

I trained with Peggy Huddleston and am certified to facilitate the “Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster™” workshop based on her book by the same name.

Patients love this program and can’t imagine how they would have gotten through their surgery without it. Using the program is a win-win situation.  It benefits patients, doctors and hospitals. Patients are less anxious about surgery and less likely to cancel elective surgeries. Patients using less pain medication and leaving the hospital sooner save hospitals and insurance companies money.

      Learn Mind-Body Techniques to:

  1. Feel calmer before surgery

  2. Use 23-50% less pain medication

  3. Recover sooner

What healthcare professionals are saying:

      Learn five key steps to Prepare for Surgery:

  1. 1.Calm preoperative jitters using guided relaxation CD. Feeling peaceful strengthens your immune system and creates the biochemistry that enhances healing

  2. 2.Visualize your recovery by turning worries into healing imagery

  3. 3.Surround yourself with the love of family and friends to feel calmer before surgery

  4. 4.Use “healing statements” that reduce the use of pain medication by 23-50%

  5. 5.Establish supportive doctor-patient relationships

Ideally, you will schedule a one-time one-hour session with me one to two weeks before your operation. Even if you only have a few days before surgery, you can still benefit.

The workshop can also benefit patients undergoing medical procedures, chemotherapy and radiation therapy

Book and CD are included in the price of the workshop.

You may attend with a friend or family member at no extra cost

Workshop may be done in person or by phone.
