Chronic Pain, Cancer Pain and Opioids with M. Ron Eslinger, RN, CRNA, APN, MA, BCH, CMI, FNGH, OB
Ron Eslinger is presenting an overview of his four session Pain Program and the 21 Step Model that he developed. It started with his pain clients in 1979 and has continued to evolve into new techniques and ideas added as recently as 2018. It also includes his personal use of hypnosis for chronic pain and tongue/throat cancer; what he did and how he survived. According to Ron: It is not cancer it is “Can-Ser-Vive”.
Ron has found in his practice that a pain patient is also involved in other wellness and medical issues. He will discuss why weaving client issues into a holistic practice will result in greater success for clients and, in turn, greater success for the hypnotist.
