Front Cover
New Harbinger Publications, 1997 - Medical - 220 pages
Even a relatively minor operation is still an assault to the system--and a source of anxiety and stress. Studies and research suggest that mind-body preparation for surgery can help relieve anxiety and reduce the severity of physical symptoms following an operation. This workbook distills the results of these studies into a usable, supportive guide.
