Pain relief through distraction is not all in your head. Mental distractions make pain easier to take and that is where hypnosis for pain control comes in. In both my Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge Island hypnosis offices (and via Skype) I have coached many people who learn hypnosis to control their pain. Learn self-hypnosis and discover how you can forget pain. Hypnotherapy for pain control is being used in medical settings such as Stanford and Mayo throughout the world. Hypnosis is one of the most effective tools for managing and overcoming chronic pain.
Pain Relief Through Distraction:
It’s Not All in Your Head
ScienceDaily, May 17, 2012: The findings based on high-resolution spinal fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) as people experienced painful levels of heat show that mental distractions actually inhibit the response to incoming pain signals at the earliest stage of central pain processing.
“The results demonstrate that this phenomenon is not just a psychological phenomenon, but an active neuronal mechanism reducing the amount of pain signals ascending from the spinal cord to higher-order brain regions,” said Christian Sprenger of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf.
Those effects involve endogenous opioids, which are naturally produced by the brain and play a key role in the relief of pain, the new evidence shows. The findings show just how deeply mental processes can go in altering the experience of pain, and that may have clinical importance.
One way to distract yourself from pain is to sing the song, Row, Row Your Boat. Its hard to suffer when you are singing merrily merrily life is but a dream!
Pain is your body’s natural warning system. This system produces whatever is necessary to draw your attention to an imbalance in the body so that it can be restored to balance as quickly as possible. You don’t have to listen to the body’s alarm constantly to address it. Like a fire alarm, a few short blasts and you are aware of the need to respond, but you don’t have to hear it constantly to effectively put the fire out. Suffering with pain is not necessary. Learn hypnosis for pain control and forget your pain so that you can feel great and enjoy your life.
