Pain is the human bodyguard, the cop on the beat racing to the scene, sirens wailing, shutting down traffic. You’ve been cut, burned, broken: pay attention, stop the bleeding, apply heat, apply cold, do something…But what happens when the pain goes rogue, when it send off false alarms so that all sirens keep sounding, all the cops keep coming, all the hurts keep hurting…. Rather than saving lives, it wrecks them… it becomes an illness in itself. The result: persistant, unceasing torment.
Alice Park, Healing the Hurt
Do you think you struggle with pain management?
Mental attitude can make a big difference to perception of pain, which is biologically programmed to grab your attention, stop what you are doing, and seek help.
Techniques such as hypnotherapy, which trains the mind to live in peace with the discomfort, can help ease the symptoms, break the cycle and greatly improve quality of life for sufferers.
How does hypnosis for pain management work?
Hypnotherapy is a modified state of consciousness in which the mind is temporarily re-routed. This allows the subconscious mind to open up to selective, positive and mood-boosting suggestions.
Because there are different types of pain, each person’s treatment is unique. I use a variety of techniques and methods to help you live at relative peace. I will also retrain your brain to be less disturbed by pressure. By guiding your subconscious mind to process the uncomfortable sensation like it does everyday unconscious automated functions, hypnosis can make the pressure seem less noticeable.
If you are concerned that you are suffering from discomfort, it is important to have your health checked by a doctor or specialist. They will recommend further investigation and treatment as appropriate. If the underlying cause is unclear, your treatment will focus on making day-to-day life more manageable.
