Hypnotherapy for Pain Management
Struggling with frequent or chronic pain?
Concerned about taking strong narcotics to control pain?
Hypnosis can help reduce your pain
When injury, disability, surgical aftermath, or disease cause unrelenting physical pain, it's hard to feel enthusiastic about life. This is the case for nearly 25 million adults in the United States who suffer mild to severe pain on a daily basis -- mostly in the joints and back -- according to the National Institutes of Health.
And when it seems like your whole life revolves around avoiding many normal activities, or finding the least painful position to be in, it limits what you want to do, and impacts you career and social life.
If you are a pain sufferer, you know how tiring it can be, how much it can drain your energy, and make you feel depressed.
You might yearn to have an active recreational life again, or maybe to just be able to tolerate an afternoon outdoors playing with your kids. But the pain now makes it impossible to more than sit on the sidelines watching others have fun.
So if you are ready eager for a pain reduction treatment that doesn't cause more problems than it fixes, it's time to consider hypnosis.

Hypnosis helps the mind feel less pain
Research into hypno-analgesia -- the use of hynosis for pain control --shows that the human mind is a powerful tool for changing how pain is perceived and responded to.
According to the American Psychological Association, hypnosis alters the psychological experience of pain, resulting in a lower need for narcotics and sedatives, and a reduction in hospitalizations for medical and surgical treatment of pain.
Through a combination of deep relaxation of the muscles and nervous system of the body, and the strategic by-pass of ingrained beliefs about expecting to feel pain, hypnosis helps the mind respond differently to the anticipation and observation of felt sensations of pain.
Post-hypnotic suggestions and other instructions for increasing relaxation and mindfulness between hypnosis sessions encourage the body to be less attentive and reactive to the stimulation of pain receptors in the brain. Using these suggestions and instructions every day reinforces the body's ability to perceive less pain.
The mind still recognizes and avoids normal injury-producing dangers that might cause new pain. Nothing about Power of the Mind hypnosis with me will cause you to engage in risky behaviors.
