Hypnotherapy for Pain Management

Hypnotherapy for Pain Management

One of the little known uses for hypnosis is that it is can be extremely effective when used to help people with pain. Many people are unaware that operations can be carried out under hypnosis without the need for any form of anaesthesia and if you Google this you will see that plenty of people are able to create this state easily and quickly. In fact there is an increased use of hypnosis and pain management through the use Hypnobirthing by expectant mothers. This is almost starting to become mainstream however the use of hypnosis to tackle chronic pain is still in its infancy. Hypnotherapy for pain management is a little known tool that can be used in addition to conventional medicine to alleviate the intensity of pain.*

Psychological and Physical Pain

In traditional medicine a doctor or consultant will give their clients painkillers or other anti-depressants to help alleviate their pain. In many people these can help but for others the pain does not appear to change and this can leave their patients feeling helpless because their quality of life is being impacted. What the doctors don’t generally address, unless the person is sent to a specialist pain clinic, is that there are many cases where there is a psychological aspect to this pain as well. A very easy demonstration of this is that the real intensity of a persons pain may be at a level 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. Now if that patient is in a state of anxiety or worry that pain will increase and perhaps now be perceived as a level 7 or 8.*

Before working with a client for pain control we ask that their symptoms have been thoroughly checked out by a doctor before work progresses. We will not attempt to alleviate pain in a person who is unaware of what is causing the problem as we could mask a problem which needs to be addressed.*
