Pain Management and Pain Control are specialist areas of Hypnotherapy
Pain is basically a message from the brain to let you know that there is a problem somewhere in your body and as such should not be ignored. If you stub your toe or cut your finger it is obvious what is causing the pain and it can be easily dealt with, but if the cause is unknown, then it should always be properly diagnosed by a suitably qualified medical professional before any treatment can be determined.
Within Hypnotherapy, there are many tried and tested methods of reducing the amount of pain that is experienced and these can be particularly beneficial to long term and chronic sufferers. Giving you a degree of control over the pain can be very empowering and help to enhance your quality of life, often restoring your confidence to do things that you had given up on.
Hypnotherapy can also be very useful in coping with the anxiety of anticipated pain such as surgery or perhaps dental treatment. By learning how to control the level of pain through self-hypnosis the anxiety will be reduced, leaving you much more calm and relaxed and it is also proven to reduce recovery time after the procedure.
“I went to Joy for help with my chronic back pain. I had been seeing a chiropractor for a few months and although the treatment I was receiving relieved the pain in the short term, it would soon return. The pain had originally appeared after I had suffered an emotional trauma and I felt that maybe the stress of this was somehow linked to my back pain. I had 7 sessions in total with Joy and was amazed with the results. She used hypnotherapy to help me deal with my emotions and also taught me techniques to use in my everyday life to deal with any future pain. I am now not only pain free, but more positive about what the future holds.”
