At Newton Integrative Health Services, we provide comprehensive support and therapy for patients facing the end of their lives, and for individuals and families frightened or grieving over the impending or recent death of a loved one.
Many patients use hypnotherapy to partially block fear and grief in order to enjoy the rest of their lives as much as possible. It many cases, it is remarkably effective at helping patients relax, and shifting the balance of their concentration away from death in favor of the life they still have. A short but intensive course of treatments generally provide the best relief. Hypnotherapy is unlikely to prevent fears and grief from recurring altogether, but it usually helps considerably.
For patients who hope to confront and resolve long-term emotional or relationship issues before they die, we will create an accelerated course of focused counseling, and we'll work hand-in-hand with you to get it done.
For patients concerned about the well-being of family members and other loved ones, we will compassionately work with you and them to create the best possible program of individual and family support. If you'd like to provide for this in advance, we can work with you to make that happen as well.
Of course, there's no treatment that can or should make the pain of profound loss go away. But in most situations, a short to moderate course of therapy helps maintain a healthy balance of mourning and moving forward. We will work with you to determine the best course of individual, family and/or group counseling.
For families who want to provide for comprehensive care during their grief, we can also ensure appropriate nutrition for the family, provide individualized healing therapies for each member, and manage final relations with the departed's healthcare providers.
