With The Help Of Hypnotherapy, You Can Manage Your Pain!
How often throughout your life have you taken for granted feeling physically well and fit? Many years I am sure. So if you find you’re at a time in your life, where you’re experiencing prolonged periods of pain, you’re no doubt also feeling frustrated and finding the reverberating effect impacting on many other aspects of your life.
- Are you feeling angry and frustrated?
- Are you becoming depressed and anxious that you are living with daily pain?
- Are you beginning to feel as though nothing will help?
Fortunately for you, your mind is very clever and works on two different levels.
- The conscious level – which is where our everyday thoughts and daily decision making comes into play.
- The subconscious level – which is where we store and file away all our memories (pain and injuries) and experiences, both good and bad.
In simplistic terms, this subconscious side of our brain is like a massive “filing cabinet” we are able to “tap” into with the use of hypnotherapy. Once we have gained access to the “filing cabinet”, we then need to locate the “pain management file”, pull it out and have a good read through it. Once we’ve done this, hypnotherapy is then able to “turn on” our bodies’ natural pain relief receptors and release our bodies’ natural opioids, getting them to work for us in helping with pain management long-term.
Hypnotherapy is not a miracle cure for pain relief, but is a proven beneficial and powerful therapy that is medically recognised to work with long-term effect.
Hypnotherapy helps reduce the intensity of perceived pain messages delivered to the brain from wherever that pain is felt…
I use a number of combined techniques, depending on each person’s individual pain management requirements.
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
- Positive Visualisation.
- Anchoring: Giving your mind a physical anchor to work with – such as rubbing two fingers together at any time during the day, as a trigger to kick start your bodies natural ability to switch on its own pain receptors, activating the release of your bodies own natural opioids as a from of pain relief.
- Positive reframing.
- Using a CD of a session.
- Self-hypnosis – teaching you to practice relaxation techniques so that once your sessions have come to an end you will be able to continue using the skills your have learnt on a daily basis.
I have had great success using hypnotherapy as a pain management tool. That said if you are suffering from any form of pain, it’s advisable to first visit your GP, before undertaking any hypnotherapy sessions, because pain can also be a warning signal of a more serious underlying medical condition, which needs to be ruled out.
