Managing Pain With Hypnosis
Long term and acute pain is affecting many individuals in the United Kingdom. In this article, we examine the effects of pain and how hypnotherapy may help to deal with and even overcome the issue.
There are actually ten million people living with persistent pain within the UK are you one of these people? (1) Pain is designed to warn us of damage, but when that warning lasts for long periods, it can be both incapacitating and stressful. There are plenty of things that can cause chronic pain including surgical procedures, cancer treatment, injury and of course the wear and tear due to day to day life. The use of pain killers can be a great help with pain but in most cases they would only go part way in removing the pain for periods of time and some people simply have to accept the pain.
Pain is often a warning that is difficult to ignore. The detrimental effects of pain on a person’s life happen no matter the cause and they’ve got to be handled daily.
The following are just a few of the effects related to pain:
Increase or appetite loss.
Pain often causes interruption to their normal sleeping patterns.
Stress and anxiety, natural depression and swift changes in mood due to continual pain.
Lack of confidence and low self-esteem.
How hypnotherapy helps to handle pain.
Hypnosis is a legitimate solution for pain management that is thoroughly non-invasive. It is extremely useful in relation to conditions where stress or anxiety has a substantial effect on the symptoms or pains associated with the condition. Irritable bowel is an example of physical pain which is made worse by feelings of emotional stress and anxiety.
Hypnosis doesn’t remove pain, but it changes the perception of it as well as the reaction to it. So the person is empowered since they are given the control to deal with their pain on their own.
With hypnotherapy you learn how to tackle pain differently. Could this be the answer you have been seeking out? Pain management hypnotherapy should give you the tools to relax deeply and significantly modify the way you control your pain.
Chris Russell from The Manor Consultancy based in Drayton, Portsmouth, Hants explained why in their view hypnotherapy is extremely effective at reducing and controlling long term pain, By letting the subconscious or Deep Inner Mind know that we are aware of the pain and talking with the Deep Inner Mind about the causes or possible causes and or help that can be given; we can usually reduce the level of pain to one of discomfort and maintain that while the healing process takes place. This applies to both physical and mental pain.
