Pain affects us in a multitude of ways, it saps energy, causes lack of sleep, increases stress, can lead to depression, stops us from doing the things we love. Your thoughts and emotions affect your experience of pain, negative thinking and emotions increase your experience of pain.
As you read this I would like you to imagine what it would be like if your pain could be reduced by even 10%. Now what about if it could be reduced even more, or even switched off for periods of time. Would that be a useful skill to you?
"Hypnosis is the most frequently cited form ofic nonpharmacologic cognitive Pain Management. Hypnotherapy for the management of chronic pain has been demonstrated to provide relief for the symptoms of pain in cancer, arthritis, sickle cell disease, temporomandibular disorder, and fibromyalgia. Hypnosis has demonstrated positive outcomes for the reduction of chronic and procedural-related pain in oncology." - Gary Elkins (PhD), William Fisher (MA), and Jim Sliwinski (MA), Cancer Network
Hypnosis, NLP and other powerful tools, at my disposal, have helped millions of people have a better life. Helping overcome negative thoughts, release unhelpful emotions and reduce or eliminate Pain. Hypnosis for pain management has lots of evidence to back its efficiency. In their 2003 review of controlled clinical studies, Dr. Patterson and fellow psychologist Mark Jensen, PhD, found that hypno-analgesia (Pain Management through hypnosis) is associated with significant reductions in: ratings of pain, need for analgesics or sedation, nausea and vomiting, and length of stay in hospitals. Hypnosis has also been associated with better overall outcome after medical treatment and greater physiological stability. Surgeons and other health providers have reported significantly higher degrees of satisfaction with their patients treated with hypnosis than with their other patients.Studies have shown that the majority of people get good results in the reduction of pain.
Pain is caused by the brain - it's all in the mind. That does not mean that it is not real. The medical community is changing its view on chronic/persistant pain. It is being classed more and more as a disease.
"If you're looking for a gentle way to reduce the pain that comes with chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or osteoarthritis (OA), hypnosis may just do the trick. Studies show that more than 75% of people with arthritis and related diseases experience significant pain relief using hypnosis." - Jenny Nash, Arthritis Foundation
