Pain can be extremely distressing. Depending on its severity, it can affect your mental health just as much as it affects your physical wellbeing.
All parts of your life can be affected by pain. This includes work, career, relationships, sleep, social life, leisure time and even just the general state of being. More specifically, pain can affect your body in the following ways;
- Lack of attention span
- Ineffective memory control
- Lack of flexibility when it comes to mental functioning
- Lessened problem solving capabilities
- Slower brain processing times
- Anger / Irritation
- Inability to concentrate
- Rage / Fear
An example of how Hypnotherapy addresses pain problems
Maybe you have heard of an athlete that sustains an injury and continues playing. Only after the game or the competition are they aware of the intensity of the pain. How does this happen? This is the effect of the mind influencing the perception of pain. The mind was preoccupied with something else, and the pain was not perceived by the mind. When the distraction of the game or competition is gone, the mind then perceives the pain that was there all along. But when the mind is distracted, the perception of pain diminishes. With hypnosis, we are able to distract the mind from the pain. We can use hypnosis to focus on other perceptions and change the intensity of the feeling to decrease the discomfort.
How Hypnotherapy can help you?
If you’re suffering from chronic pain or chronic illness or both, hypnosis equips you with a resource to shift from a physical context of discomfort to a more comfortable (or neutral) state. You can expect that the process of altering your state of consciousness will be associated with (partial or complete) relief from the symptoms of chronic pain.
In addition if you are scheduled for surgery, or know someone else who is, consider surgical recovery hypnosis to accelerate the healing process and manage the pain.
When experiencing pain, it is important it be investigated by a medical professional to become aware of the cause to rule out any possible complications before utilizing hypnotherapy for pain reduction.
The Pain Management Hypnosis Program will Help You:
- Identify the Source of the Pain
- Release and Relieve Emotions or Feelings Associated with Pain
- Eliminate Pain
Hypnosis for pain management offers natural alternatives in which you employ multiple steps to help you overcome pain. First, you’ll be made to understand the source of your pain. Next, I’ll help you isolate the very intricate way in which your brain can disassociate from pain. The last and final step is the actual dissociation. This will be executed by you, with my help. At the same time, we work together to raise your threshold for what you can handle and in turn this results in a reduction of symptoms.
The above steps will result in an elimination of the feeling of pain or at least a significantly reduced intensity of pain.
You’ll also learn how to use deep relaxation and self-hypnosis to “turn your pain down”, without my help and to incorporate these techniques into your lifestyle. You’ll be able to use it on demand, every time you experience pain, to nullify its symptoms, to live virtually pain free.
Depending on the severity and intensity of your pain, it might take just one session to empower you with techniques that you can use to be pain-free. Sometimes, it may take additional sessions as a part of an individual’s ongoing treatment plan.
“Comparative efficacy studies have demonstrated that hypnosis is often more effective than biofeedback, relaxation, cognitive behavioral therapy, acupuncture, or morphine for both acute and chronic pain with 75% of those who use hypnosis experiencing some relief of pain (Patterson & Jensen, 2003). Hypnotic techniques have proven useful for pain associated with burns, cancer, invasive medical procedures, headaches, musculoskeletal conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, and fibromyalgia (Haanen et al., 1991; Lynch, 1999; Montgomery et al., 2000). Hypnosis has demonstrated particular utility for reducing cancer pain, including bone marrow transplant pain and coping with invasive procedures associated with cancer treatment (Ernst, 2001; Handel, 2001; Lynch, 1999; Marchioro et al., 2000; Pattison, 1997; Renouf, 1998).”

Hypnosis and Pain Management:
Pain management hypnosis has been proven to work on reducing the pain that a person experiences. The pain killers that reside in your body are responsible for this.
These natural pain killers are endorphins. Pain management hypnosis can access this natural morphine in your body and train your mind to access and activate the appropriate neurotransmitter to reduce the pain that you feel.
Your subconscious assures you that you are not feeling pain and the release of endorphins ensures that pain is diminished.
