If you suffer from chronic pain, fibromyalgia, Parkinsonís disease, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis or chronic then this information may help you.
Did you know that hypnosis has been used for pain management by the medical community for centuries?
Have you ever met someone who had an extreme tolerance to pain? Or someone else that was very susceptible to pain?
Most people think of pain as something to do with the body, but in reality pain is in the mind. When you feel pain, itís really your brain interpreting the impulses arriving from the nerves.
A hypnotist can use suggestion to affect how that interpretation is made. Your hypnotherapist can alter "dial down" the amount of pain you feel.
Even individuals with chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia, Parkinsonís disease, arthritis and chronic fatigue can be helped.
Today many people use hypnosis successfully to manage their pain.
Hypnosis is widely used and accepted as an adjunct to treatment for pain control, habit disorders, symptom reduction, and many medical problems.
Approximately 50-75 million Americans suffer with persistent (chronic) pain. The number of people suffering with chronic pain is higher than, and includes, those with breast cancer, AIDS, and nearly all other serious or terminal illnesses.
Unlike those major illnesses, most chronic pain is untreated or under-treated Chronic Pain can occur if the brain does not understand the signal and sends back the wrong message.
This result is Chronic Pain that does not respond to conventional treatment.
Hypnosis is also an excellent modality to help people with any medical condition that is a result of stress. IBS, headache problems, acne, cardiovascular disease and autoimmune disorders are just a few of the conditions that can be alleviated by the kind of deep relaxation that hypnosis brings.
One of the reasons why Hypnosis can be so helpful is that when in pain, people often feel helpless and out of control. Hypnosis gives an emotional boost by helping to relieve pain and allows a person to have increased control.
Hypnosis should not be used as a replacement for medical treatment or prescriptions.
