Pain is a complicated problem that everyone experiences at some point in their life. Everyone however experiences pain differently with varying symptoms and have different pain thresholds.
Pain can have a purpose. So, if you are experiencing pain, you should always see your doctor. This is the starting point to investigate what is causing your pain, and how best to treat it. The reason you are experiencing pain can be identified, for example it may be as a result of a medical condition.
However, in some cases, there may not be any obvious cause. If you’re experiencing pain on a regular basis, then it will be worth considering Hypnotherapy for your “Pain Management”
One important focus of Hypnotherapy for pain management is that it helps us looking at the link between the body and mind. For many people, stress and anxiety are commonly experienced alongside pain and can exacerbate pain.
The perception of physical sensations is directly linked with the way that the mind responds to pain. Focusing on changing the thought patterns related to pain can make a huge difference to pain perception, and helping to reduce associated stress.
Hypnotherapy combined with Mindfulness techniques enables you to focus on relaxation and let go of any distracting unwanted thoughts and feelings, by temporarily tuning-out the conscious part of your mind.
A common misconception is that a hypnotherapist will try to convince you that your pain doesn't exist. As a Hypnotherapist I will never make the pain go away but make it manageable for you to carry on with your day to day life without being in discomfort.
