The function of Pain.
Pain should always be taken seriously and not dismissed as being ‘imagined’. Pain is the signal that something in your body needs attention. It is your call to action. Once you have had medical attention for any pain you experience and it has been fully investigated you may find that Hypnosis and the strategies we use, to be a powerful way to manage pain.
Acute and Chronic Pain.
In general there are two types of pain. Acute pain is the type of pain you experience when you hit your thumb with a hammer or stub your toe. You know it is extreme at the time but the pain will end. Chronic pain is long term, even long after the injury has happened, it is where there appears to be no sign of it ending.
No Pain till it reaches the Brain!
Hypnotic suggestions are given to increase blood flow to the affected areas of the body to help release the body’s own natural pain relieving chemicals (endorphins). These endorphins are taken via the blood stream to reduce or eliminate the pain in the affected area. This is only one of a number of techniques you will learn to master. You will be asked to visualise during the process and post hypnotic suggestions are also used to allow the power of your mind to heal your body.
These techniques are now being used in cancer care treatment. Hypnotherapists also use these and other more powerful techniques to eliminate pain during surgery. Some people are unable to undergo the usual method of anaesthesia and many surgical procedures have been undertaken using hypnosis as an alternative to both general and local anaesthetics.
There are many examples of surgeons from James Esdaile (1845) to Jack Gibson at the turn of the century, who have successfully used Hypnosis during surgery. It is safe to say that if people can be taught to use hypnosis during surgery, you can be shown how to use the same methods to help relieve and eliminate your experience of Chronic pain in your every day life.
