Pain is the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Once we are taking all the necessary steps to address the condition pain becomes redundant. Unfortunately it does not simply go away. Hypnotherapy has considerable success in helping to reduce pain. In some cases, where it is safe and appropriate to do so, you may even be able to eliminate pain altogether.
Pain can be a consequence of surgical procedures, injuries, physical stress and illness. It can also sometimes be psychological in origin. We do insist that you visit your doctor first before we treat you for pain management because it is important to know exactly what the origin and implications of pain are before modifying it.
Hypnotherapy works by teaching you to relax deeply, helping you to detach. You will also learn how to focus your attention upon more positive and useful sensations. By giving you a real sense of being in control we also eliminate much of the anxiety associated with recurrent or intense pain and thus allow you to lead your life as comfortably and productively as possible whilst you and your doctor continue to resolve any underlying medical issues.
