Manage Your Chronic Pain With Therapeutic Hypnosis
Therapeutic Hypnosis is a poweful tool to lessen chronic pain and provide remarkable relief to those who suffer from it. A recent analysis of 18 studies by researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York revealed significant pain-relieving effects from Therapeutic Hypnosis, supporting the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for pain management. Among those conditions studied were: cancer related pains, arthritis, neck and back pains, and relieving anxiety related to surgery.
Scores of scientific studies attest to the power of the mind and the fact that many illnesses have a psychological component to them. These studies verify that it is possible to control physical responses — such as pain — through use of the mind. Your subconscious mind is powerful. The same way it can cause pain or aggravate illnesses and pain if you are stressed or anxious, it can also lessen or silence discomfort altogether. Case studies consistently show the power of the mind in managing pain by resolving pent-up emotions or just defusing them.
This is exactly what therapeutic hypnosis can help you do. Psychological approaches to pain relief are well documented, and hypnosis has been widely used for decades in this area. Dr Milton Erickson, one of the world's leading lights in the use of Therapeutic Hypnosis, used his skills to manage his own chronic pain from the two bouts of polio he suffered during his lifetime.
"Hypnosis takes the edge off and makes [patients] feel better. With some, it’s dramatic. It works so well they don’t need pain medicine at all. . . Hypnosis is an astonishingly powerful pain reliever. . . that seems to be useful for virtually every clinical pain problem imaginable."
– Dave Patterson, MD, University of Washington, Harbor View Burn Center
One of the problems with chronic pain management is that the brain habituates to pain-killing drugs, requiring higher and higher doses. Hypnotherapy works in a different way, causing the brain to stop responding to pain signals. The trick to using hypnosis for pain management is to learn the skills contained within sessions, so that you can then use them yourself whenever you need them. Many people quickly grasp the techniques and gain relief from the start.
Through the deeply relaxing state of hypnosis, you can reduce — or even eliminate — mild to chronic pain. Hypnotherapy is unsurpassed in its ability to make you feel calm and comfortable again. All therapeutic hypnosis sessions include teaching you self-hypnosis, so that you have the ability to control your comfort level — to relieve pain and boost your comfort level whenever you need to.
