Hypnosis for pain relief

If you’re looking for a gentle way to reduce the pain that comes with chronic conditions, hypnosis may just do the trick. Studies show that more than 75% of people with arthritis and other chronic diseases experience significant pain relief using hypnosis.

Forget what you’ve seen in movies about hypnosis. Today’s practitioners are using it to give patients an additional tool to help manage their pain.

Learning to Relax with Hypnosis

Hypnosis isn’t about convincing you that you don’t feel pain; it’s about helping you manage the fear and anxiety you feel related to that pain. It relaxes you, and it redirects your attention from the sensation of pain. In a hypnosis session, which usually lasts 20 – 30 minutes, you willl start by focusing on your breathing to help you relax. Then the hypnotist will instruct you to imagine a pleasant place and describe it in detail, refocusing your attention from something that triggers negative emotions, to something that will activate positive emotions, whatever that may be for you.

If your mind is off to the beach for example, and you’re imagining the warmth of the sun, the cool of the breeze and the sand at your feet, you will be less focused on your pain – and ready for the indirect suggestion of how to react to pain in the future.
