“Don’t fight your pain; you can’t win. The paradox of recovery is that you have to surrender to win. Accepting what you cannot change makes the difference.” – Adapted from Pain Recovery: How to Find Balance and Reduce Suffering from Chronic Pain
Hypnosis is a very effective tool that can help with the management of pain. Hypnosis doesn’t make the pain go away. Rather you learn techniques to help you deal better with the pain, and reduce the stress associated with it.
As a client once told me regarding her pain in her leg: “I know that the pain is still there, but I just don’t think about it that much any longer. I used to think about it 24/7 and it was all that was on my mind.”
Pain And Your Mindset
If you are always thinking to yourself, “I cannot do anything about my pain!” then it will constantly be on your mind. You will never be able to dissociate with it. One of the things that hypnosis for pain management can do, is to help you to change thinking patterns that make your pain feel worse. How incredible would it be if you knew the pain was there, but you learned techniques through hypnosis to help you change your mindset so you could focus on other things!
According to a July 2, 2014 article from the American Psychological Association: “A meta-analysis (a study of studies) in 2000 of 18 published studies by psychologists Guy Montgomery, PhD, Katherine DuHamel, PhD, and William Redd, PhD, showed that 75% of clinical and experimental participants with different types of pain obtained substantial pain relief from hypnotic techniques.”
Consult With A Physician
Before using hypnosis for pain management, you want to ensure first that the pain isn’t being caused by something that requires medical attention. In fact, if a client wants to see me for pain management hypnosis, it is my policy that I will send a letter to their doctor to make them aware that the client is using hypnosis to help them with a pain. Hypnosis can help to manage the pain, and after a short time, essentially help you to “forget” about the pain and concentrate on other things in your life.
There could be huge implications if the headaches were caused by something far more serious (a tumor, circulation issues, etc.) that required medical intervention, and you ignored them! So it is very important that you first consult with a physician regarding any pain before starting hypnosis.
