Are you suffering from chronic pain but physical therapy and medicines don’t seem to give you any relief? Then you may want to try pain management hypnosis.
Yes, it is a mental tool, but hypnosis for pain alleviation can be quite effective. That is because in most cases, the pain we experience is tied to emotional problems such as anxiety and stress. If you can be able to deal with these mental issues, then you can stop the pain that tags along.
But how do you really do it?
Well, during a pain management session, you’ll be put in a trance-like state during which the hypnotist will assist you to gain full access into your subconscious mind.
This is actually training to access and relax the subconscious mind. Instead of allowing this part of the brain to have a strong reaction to anxiety, stress, etc., you can train it to take things lightly. That does not mean you will never experience these emotional ups and downs again; it’s just that you could change the way you respond to the muscle aches, nausea, and headaches that are a result of stress and anxiety.
But what if the pain you’re experiencing isn’t mental and is a result of something like an injury or disease? Well, hypnosis for pain relief can also help with as well.
Notice that everything is connected to the subconscious mind. So, even strictly physical feelings are still tied to this part of the brain. That means that the hypnotist can train you reduce the intensity of the pain by teaching you how to respond differently to that stimulus.
But is that really Possible?
Well, how do you think some individuals have an extremely high tolerance for pain in competitive sports while others can barely function under immense pressure? Your pain tolerance is tied to the subconscious mind’s ability to distract you from the pain.
You will not experience any extra discomfort when you explore pain management hypnosis, but you may learn how to reduce that discomfort a lot.
