Does anyone have ANY knowledge of hypnosis. The scene is this: six year old girl breaks her arm. She is allergic to most anesthesia AND pain medications, our hero thinks he may be able to help by using hypnosis.
I know hypnosis can be used in surgery, I new a woman years ago who had major abdominal surgery using only hypnosis for anesthesia. However, I no longer know how to contact her. I think she had to have several sessions with the therapist before the surgery to get ready.
I need to know if it would be possible to:
1. work with a child that young.
2. work with someone already in pain.
3. if the answers are yes to 1 and 2. Would our hero then be able to tell the girl "fairy tells" while she was "under" to keep her mind occupied while the Doctor would be setting her arm?
If someone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
Ok, I got it finished. Thanks everybody!
