To manage pain, you may be happy to hear that our mind has the ability to create chemicals that act as effective painkillers naturally. These painkillers include endorphines, oxytocine and encephalins. Unfortunately, when we are stressed or anxious, these chemicals are scarce.
Our emotions and negativity can make pain worse because of the power of thought. You can manage pain by starting to take more control of your own wellbeing by creating a positive attitude with your thoughts.
Hypnotherapists would never use hypnosis to treat or manage pain unless the cause of that pain is already known. A medical practitioner should first diagnose the cause of the pain. Pain is sometimes a symptom of a more serious underlying condition. Fortunately, you can relieve pain effectively using hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is used in a variety of situations for treating pain. Consequently it can be used through child birth and surgery. Our mind can become confused and as a result, send a pain signal. Even though we have suffered no physical reason for this. In this situation, it is known as phantom pain.
Hypnosis has helped manage pain for years
Surgeons and doctors alike used hypnotherapy to control pain long before medication was available. In 1850, an English surgeon known as Dr James Esdaile demonstrated that hypnosis could remove the acute pain of major surgery. The patients recovery rate were improved. Since then, many more studies in more recent years have shown hypnosis to be effective. However in your private time, it is important for you or the patient to continue all you learn in the sessions, .
Pain is essential
For our survival pain itself is an essential element. In fact, acute pain is our body’s way of telling us we are being damaged and we’d better do something about it — fast!
Our very survival would be threatened without this kind of pain. Actually, there is some pain that even powerful medicines have difficulty controlling. Our lives are made really difficult with headaches, back pain, arthritis and the terrible pain associated with cancer.
Pain comes in two forms
In fact, pain is both physical and psychological. The most well known psychological pain is phantom limb pain. This pain continues to be felt in an amputated body part. So it clearly demonstrates the fact that our brain is capable of interpreting messages of pain from the body and self conjuring. Our brain can initiate these messages independent of any physical cause. Such pain can be as real and intense as pain coming from any injury.
Hypnosis can help pain control
If you have experienced chronic pain for any length of time, you may have the feeling that you are you’ll suffer from that pain forever. And few things are as soul-destroying as having to endure this.
Hypnosis used for pain control and pain management offers help where medication and alternative medicine have failed. I can teach you to alter the brain’s perception of the pain message. In effect, to turn down the intensity or to produce its own internal medication.
