For millions of people, pain is an unavoidable and disabling part of life. Here we examine the effects that it can have on someone and how hypnosis will help to deal with that pain.
Do you think you’re one of the millions of people in the UK afflicted by chronic pain? (1) For many people, long term pain will have a significant effect on their daily life and can at times be very draining. Pain can come from many sources, including disease, being injured and surgical treatment, and even the stress and strain of life. Pain killers will often be the primary source of short term pain relief, but in cases of chronic pain, the possibility of a life of pain is something that a lot of people simply have to come to terms with.
Unfortunately for most, it isn’t something that can be easily resolved. No matter whether or not the discomfort is from a recent injury, or from a chronic condition, it can still have devastating effects on a person’s day to day life.
Listed here are just a few of the effects related to pain:
Reduction in or increased appetite through comfort eating to divert them from the pain.
Pain in many cases causes disturbance to their normal sleep patterns.
Depression symptoms and low moods connected to continually attempting to manage the pain.
Thoughts of despondency, low self-worth and confidence – feeling ‘broken’.
Hypnotherapy could assist you to with pain management.
Hypnosis is a legitimate strategy to pain management that is totally non-invasive. It is particularly useful in relation to conditions where stress or anxiousness has a considerable effect on the symptoms or pains associated with the condition. IBS, as an example, has been proven to worsen through stress and anxiousness, so when these emotional problems are taken away, the condition should then calm in its intensity.
Hypnosis doesn’t remove pain, but it changes the perceptual experience of it as well as the reaction to it. So the person will be able to successfully reduce their own pain levels and modify their perceptions of the pain they are going through.
In essence, you allow your mind to contend with the pain signals in a more beneficial way. Hypnotherapy treatments could well be the answer you are searching for. Pain management hypno-theraputic approaches will give you the tools to relax deeply and significantly change the way you cope with your pain.
Lyta Humphris from Hypnosis Devon based in Plymouth, Devon explained why in their view hypnotherapy is extremely helpful at reducing and controlling long term pain,
Hypnosis is an excellent tool to control acute pain, especially pain that is anticipated. Many dentists and obstetricians continue to use hypnosis. for example a motivated woman can usually have her baby with a minimum of discomfort, especially with hypnosis, especially if she has been taught hypnosis for birthing beforehand.
