It is natural to question if hypnosis for pain control really works and to wonder why hypnosis eliminates pain. Hypnotherapy can be one of the most effective tools for managing and overcoming chronic pain. Stanford University, Mayo Clinic and others have long been documenting the effectiveness of hypnotic pain control. Chronic pain is debilitating and depressing. Not only does it affect you physically, it affects you mentally and emotionally as well. With hypnosis you can free yourself from aggravation of chronic pain. Learn self-hypnosis to forget and move through pain and live your life.
Why Hypnosis Eliminates Pain
Neuroimaging studies demonstrate that, during hypnotic analgesia, highly hypnotizable people have more physiological flexibility involving an active inhibitory process of supervisory, executive control by the anterior frontal cortex interacting with and modulating other parts of the brain.
In other words, the executive functions of their frontal lobe can better work with other parts of the brain in inhibiting the perception of pain from coming to consciousness.
Once subjects learned hypnotic analgesia techniques in the lab, they were able to transfer the learned ability to help control their own back pain. Their psychological wellbeing went up and their depression and levels of pain went down. Thus hypnosis is an excellent behavioral adjunct to more traditional approaches to pain control such as medications.
Chronic pain has a purpose: To get your ATTENTION! But once it has your attention, and you are addressing it, you no longer need the chronic pain. Time Magazine reports that we have to retrain the brain and find a way to shut the pain alarm down. Rather than mask pain with medication, you can learn self-hypnosis for pain reduction.
Hypnosis pain control really can work and improve your life.
