Hypnosis addresses the mind body link and this is often recommended to those having to deal with long term pain. The stress and anxiety that comes with long term pain cam make the sensation worse and hypnotherapy can help you cope as well as the way the mind responds to pain and physical sensation.

Helping to reduce this stress and change the thought patterns related to pain can make a huge difference to the perception of pain. Hypnotherapy is often used to achieve this.

Hypnosis focuses the mind on relaxation and letting go of distracting thoughts. You conscious mind is temporarily tuned out opening you up to the power of suggestion. This is where I can make suggestions to encourage pain relief.

Hypnotherapy will not convince you that your pain does not exist. Instead it help to manage anxiety and fear you may have relating to your pain. Hypnosis will help to relax your mind and reduce stress therefore helping you to become less reactive to pain.

Hypnosis for pain can refocus your mind using visualisation techniques such as imagining you are somewhere nice like a beach. Thinking about the details of your nice place such as what it looks like, feels like and concentrating on minor details can help distract you from your pain.
