Physical Pain: Relief using Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy
It is a little known fact that hypnosis is very effective in relieving and controlling physical pain, and the use of hypnosis to manage pain must therefore be approached with extreme caution. We know about hypnotherapy’s effectiveness as a pain management tool largely through the research and publications of Ernest Hillgard, former emeritus Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, who used a control research group to show that hypnosis was highly effective in managing pain.
Physical Pain Management
One of the major considerations for therapists should be that they do not use hypnosis to relieve pain unless the cause of that pain is already known and has been diagnosed by a general practitioner Pain can be a symptom of an underlying condition, for example, a persistent headache could be a symptom of a brain tumour. If the therapist were to treat the headache in this example, before the root cause of the pain was known, then this could lead to the brain tumour not being diagnosed for longer. However, if the patient had already been to their doctor and more serious causes of the headaches had been eliminated, then it would be fine for the hypnotherapist to proceed.
If you know the source of your pain and need to treat it, Our Watford therapy centre offers one hour sessions at £65.00 with thousands of hours of client work we are ideally suited to bring fast, lasting pain relief. Alternatively why not try one of our hypnotherapy downloads for pain relief and bring releif from you current physical discomfort….
Treating pain with hypnosis – when can it be done?
Pain should never be treated for its own sake, but if the underlying cause is known and your doctor gives permission, hypnosis can be very effective in relieving pain. Hypnotherapy is used in a variety of situations for treating pain, including the following:
- Post-operative pain – where traditional painkillers aren’t appropriate, perhaps because the patient is afraid needles or allergic to medication.
- Phantom limb pain – amputees sometimes experience pain from limbs which have been removed, and research has shown that hypnosis has had impressive results in treating this kind of pain.
- Palliative care – some hypnotherapists work with terminally ill patients to manage their pain and improve their quality of life. NB this is a specialism and not all hypnotherapists are happy to work with the terminally ill.
Hypnosis has been used for pain relief for centuries, and even today is widely used in surgical procedures. How does it work? By changing the way your brain interprets and responds to pain signals.
It is always important to check out what is causing any pain you may experience, as this is your body’s way of alerting you to problems and making you take care of yourself. But once it has served its purpose and you have taken or are taking the right course of action to deal with the problem, there is no need for you to endure more pain.
