Clinical hypnosis for pain management
Hypnotherapy or hypnosis for the control of pain, chronic pain and general pain management has been common place for many years. For those individuals who suffer daily pain you may have noticed when your focus is taken off the area of pain, for instance your focus is placed on an interesting television programme, your pain becomes less or is completly removed until you think about it again.
Hypnotherapy / hypnosis works in the same way to control the perceived pain and turn it down, or even completely remove it.
A 2009 study suggests that hypnotic interventions can result in significant reductions and perception of pain and can be found here.
Conditions that I have found Hypnotherapy to be particularly helpful for are -
All types of headache including migraines
Cancer based pain - a reduction in stress and anxiety is also believed to aid a patients recovery
All the above can trigger stress and also be made worse by stress which obviously compounds the problem, and it's a cycle that needs breaking. Hypnotherapy is a great tool for combatting the stress and anxiety which is 1 of the first steps in helping to control the pain.
