Hypnotherapy for Pain Relief and Physical Symptoms

Hypnosis for Pain Management

Hypnotherapy for Pain Relief will help you reduce, control and possibly eliminate many types of pain.

Are you in constant pain and don’t know how to change it?  Do you feel like it’s taking over your life?  Do you find it difficult to think about anything else?  Is it affecting your sleep, work or other activities?  If that’s the case, you’re in the right place.

Hypnosis and Pain Relief

Pain is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong and needs attention.  For example, if you break an arm or leg, the pain experienced lets us know that we need to rest this part of the body and give it time to heal.  This is “useful” pain.   Hypnotherapy for pain relief can be used to speed up the healing process and reduce temporary pain more quickly.

Pain becomes a bigger problem when it’s long lasting or chronic.  In many cases the body has healed, but the pain remains and this causes further distress and a feeling of lack of control.  The symptoms of pain are no longer useful.  What often happens is that the pain sensation gets tangled up with the emotions and memories that occurred at the time of the accident or illness.  As a result, the pain remains even though the original cause has gone.

Hypnotherapy for Pain Relief can help you untangle pain that is linked to emotions or memories and provide lasting relief.

Get it checked by a Doctor first

It is vital that you understand the cause or source of the pain before commencing hypnotherapy for pain relief treatment.  I always recommend that you see your doctor first and get a medical diagnosis.  You can then use Hypnotherapy along with other treatments recommended by your doctor to make a speedy recovery.

Pain and Mental Health

If you currently live with chronic pain, you know that the feeling is very real.  Besides impacting your physical wellbeing, pain often affects a persons mental health and quality of life as well.  The way that we think, perceive, interpret and experience pain significantly affects how we actually experience pain.

Physical Pain often feels worse when you think about it, dwell on it, remember what the pain felt like in the past or worry about how the pain might change in the future.

It is in this area that hypnotherapy for pain relief and physical symptoms can help a great deal.

How does Hypnotherapy for Pain Relief help?

If the pain is exacerbated by stress or anxiety, then relaxing the mind and body is a great first step to resolving the discomfort.  I may then use visualisation techniques to reprogram your brain to turn down the pain sensations.   I will help to reduce how often you notice the pain.  The more you can reduce the psychological affects of the pain, the easier it will be for your body to let go or reduce the physical symptoms.

I will teach you self-hypnosis for pain relief, so that you can naturally feel relaxed and comfortable between sessions.  Regular use of self-hypnosis techniques will help retrain your brain to turn down the pain sensations.

Prior to the discovery of anaesthetics, hypnosis was widely used for medical and dental procedures.  Some doctors and dentists still use this today for patients that are allergic to anaesthetics.  This is known as Hypnoanesthesia.  I use a special type of hypnoanesthesia that is very effective in reducing and providing relief for many types of pain, whether mild, severe, short-term or chronic.  It is also something that I can teach you how to do yourself.

Our minds tend to have a habit of focusing on what we don’t want.  This is especially true when it comes to pain and physical symptoms.  Over time, this can negatively affect your beliefs around healing and pain reduction.  In my hypnotherapy for pain relief sessions, I will help you to reprogram your unconscious mind to focus on healing, comfort and great health, so that your mind naturally latches on to these thoughts instead.  This will then strengthen the neural pathways in the brain for health and healing and reduce the ones associated with pain and discomfort.

Your unique solution to Pain Relief and Physical Symptoms

Pain can be a complex beast, often comprising of past remembered pain, present pain and anticipated future pain.  We all experience pain in our own way and differently in different circumstances.  Some people have a higher pain threshold than others.

I will spend a lot of time in the first session to really understand your physical pain and the psychological affects as well.  I can then determine the best approaches that will help you detach from the pain, manage it better, reduce it and give you more control over it.

How many sessions will I need?

As everyone is unique, this will tend to vary.  If you are looking to speed up recovery following surgery, accident or illness, then one or two sessions should be sufficient.  For more chronic pain and physical symptoms, a short course of treatment of 3 to 6 sessions may be required.  However, you should start noticing some changes after the first session.

For the best results, it is recommended that you use the self hypnosis techniques that I will teach you between sessions.
