My Surgery Success
A unique program to help you feel prepared for your upcoming surgery. Participants meet with a member of the Integrative Care Team via a group online class to review self-management skills that can be learned prior to your surgery. Some of these skills include: aromatherapy, guided imagery, mindful breathing and virtual reality. Learning these skills before you join us in the hospital gives you an opportunity to practice and ask questions. In addition, the Integrative Care team will be able to schedule you for more comprehensive services such as acupuncture, reiki, or hypnosis.
Participants will have the opportunity to utilize guided imagery before, during and after their surgery to support their healing journey. Research has proven that guided imagery significantly reduces anxiety before surgery, decreases their pain during and after surgery, and allows them to leave the hospital sooner.
