Anodyne Awareness Training & The National Board...

Anodyne Awareness is a concise set of language and rapport techniques used by medical and dental professionals and others who wish to quickly relieve pain and anxiety.
As a new component of their practice, physicians, nurses, dentists, dental assistants and other health care professionals use Anodyne techniques to help patients very quickly relax and relieve pain and anxiety, regardless of the circumstances.

The specific Anodyne techniques have been refined through clinical use with hundreds of patients undergoing a wide variety of medical and dental procedures, and are successful with virtually every patient.

Because Anodyne is conversational and fluid, it accompanies any procedure without requiring extra time. In fact, Anodyne patients' greater ability to relax and cooperate saves time and enhances procedural efficiency.

The specific techniques of Anodyne Awareness are drawn from the fields of hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), intuitive awareness, guided imagery, and conscious breathing. Anodyne is grounded in clinical experience of what works quickly and effectively in the acute, time-conscious domain of modern medical and dental practice.

Anodyne is useful in any procedure where patient comfort is an issue and serves especially well as a complementary alternative to pharmacological conscious sedation for relief of pain and anxiety.

Anodyne is also used to quickly control physiological processes such as blood pressure, heart rate, bleeding, peristalsis, and rapid metabolizing of chemical anesthesia. Because it is fluid and conversational, the Anodyne interaction takes no additional time and most often saves time.

Although Anodyne is technique-based, it is not a modality or form of therapy. Rather, it is a new way of bringing higher awareness and mindfulness to every patient interaction.

Medical professionals also trained as Anodyne practitioners have many more choices for successfully interacting with patients. Patients feel empowered as they learn relaxation tools they can use anytime.
