WHAT MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS SAY ABOUT COMFORT TALK:
“Patients who experienced the great benefit of the relaxation techniques once kept coming back asking for the same treatment again.”
- Dr. Verena Stinshoff
Comfort Talk benefits the entire department from a customer satisfaction point of view.
“Comfort Talk benefits the entire department from the person sitting at the front desk to the language that you use to the TV channel that you turn on. You use it on every patient every day, and you use it when you talk to each other too. It just increases the overall standard of your environment.”
– A Director of Imaging Services From A Major Hospital
Comfort Talk just sets the whole tone of the procedure right from the get-go.
“If you have a child that is walking to the room very calm and takes the mask calmly or has the IV put in calmly, it just makes the whole process much smoother and faster, and calmer and less stressful for everybody involved. Not just for the patient but for everyone.”
– Jacqueline Vegas, Nurse for Children’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada
Our claustrophobia rate was reduced significantly, down from an average of 1.9% to 1.3%. This translates into better patient care, but also in increased revenue.
“We had about 12 trainees – nursing staff, technical staff and also some administrative support staff to go through an intensive 2-3 day training with Dr. Lang and two of her associates. It was eye opening, learning new ways to interact with patients, not only when using self-hypnosis techniques, but even over the phone with our language with patients, and when they come in, with our body language.”
– Mary Ellen Tobey, Client services Manager, North Shore Magnetic Imaging Services
I’ve never had ONE bad experience with Comfort Talk!
“It’s easy to do once you’re trained in it. The more you practice it and become more confident at offering it and doing it, you recognize more situations where it can be useful.”
– Ian Lipski, Anesthesiologist

WHAT PATIENTS SAY ABOUT COMFORT TALK
Every hospital in the world should offer Comfort Talk as a choice for a patient. It’s easy, it’s economical, and it works.
“Comfort Talk allows you to take your medical care, your fear, your desire for a good outcome into your own hands, and it’s the most painless, easy, convenient way to dissipate your fear. It’s such a no-brainer really. Why wouldn’t you use something that is this convenient and easy and that works?"
– Debbie Phillips, Comfort Talk Patient and Founder of Women On Fire
I stayed calm the entire time.
“My anxiety went through the roof before my breast biopsy and before I was offered to be guided in self-hypnotic relaxation. Without hypnosis I’d probably have been crying and in more pain; I’d also have been a lot more worried about whether I had cancer.”
– C. Lopez, Comfort Talk Patient
The time just went by so good. You said about 45 minutes to an hour - it felt like 20 minutes to me. Comfort Talk made the time go right by.
— Claustrophobic Patient (After MRI procedure)
