Hypnosis help chronic pain
I received this email from Jason in Boise, Idaho, asking can hypnosis help chronic pain.
“I was referred to you by my sister who saw you online for cancer. She has talked to me about you for the past two years and insisted that I contact you.
I was injured in a construction accident. My hip was broken and I herniated a disc between L4 and L5. I live in chronic pain. Surgery made the pain worse. Medication didn’t help much and I hated how I felt so I quick taking pain pills.
So far, pot has helped the most but I don’t want to be dependent on that.
Can hypnosis help chronic pain? Can you do hypnosis for pain on the internet? Will hypnosis help me?
I hope that you can help me and that we can get started soon. I live in Boise.
Hypnosis pain control
Here is my reply to Jason:
“Jason I am so sorry to hear about the accident and that you are in chronic pain. I can’t imagine what that might be like for you, but I have successfully helped people with chronic pain here in Seattle and on Bainbridge Island since 1997 and in more recent years worldwide online.
Jason, I can’t guarantee that hypnosis pain control will work for you, but I can tell you that hypnotherapy can be one of the most effective tools for managing and overcoming chronic pain.
According to the University of Washington
“Several studies have proven that different hypnotic suggestions can reach all of the brain areas involved in pain processing.
Brain scans show that suggestions to decrease pain intensity draw a response in some regions, while suggestions that increase acceptance of pain — perhaps by encouraging patients to examine it from a distance or realize that it is temporary — will register in others.
Hypnosis is one of the most promising things we can offer to retrain the brain’s pain response.”
This is just one example of many scientific studies showing that hypnosis for chronic pain is effective and accepted in medical centers throughout the world.
For some people who have had their body assaulted by injury or disease, the physical pain may not go away. But, with hypnosis, these people discover that they can forget about it and they are able to dial it down.
For example, if the pain is a 7 on a scale of 0 to 10 with 0 being no pain and 10 off the chart, a 6 can feel great! And then the 6 can become a 5 …. And then a 4 …… and a 2 …….
Maybe they can dial it all the way down to zero or maybe not. When someone has been living with a 7, a 2 becomes very manageable.
Medical hypnosis for pain control is not an alternative to or replacement for professional medical care
Be sure to consult with your physician and continue medical treatment. Medical hypnosis is used in cooperation with your professional medical treatment.
Jason, the next step is for you and I to either talk on the phone or meet online so that I can learn more about you. If you would like to do this, let me know and I will email you a 4-page Medical Hypnosis Questionnaire for you to complete and return to me before we talk.
If we decide to work together, we can schedule your first hypnosis pain control session. In the meantime, I invite you to go to download Orange Blossom, my free 27-minute hypnosis MP3 download and listen daily for 2 weeks.
I look forward to meeting you Jason and I am confident that hypnosis can benefit you.”
