Are you suffering with pain… Is pain holding you back in life?
Would you like to be in control of your pain, rather than have pain control you?
Hypnosis helps people exert more control over their thoughts and perceptions by acting on multiple brain regions, including some linked to pain perception and regulation. Hypnosis has also been shown to quiet some parts of the brain involved in sensory processing and emotional response.
There is much scientific evidence proving the effectiveness of pain improvement through using hypnosis. Pain is a spinal nociceptive (harmful by sending signals to the brain) reflex. When a signal reaches the brain, a sensory and neural network acts to enable the conscious perception of pain.
Hypnotic analgesia is thought to be attention based in that incoming stimuli are hindered while awareness is at the same time used elsewhere.
Researchers at the University of Iowa conducted a case study in 2004 to determine the difference in pain perception in hypnotically induced individuals. A painful thermal stimulus was applied to the participants’ left hand. The subjects were then hypnotized, and their brain activity was recorded by an MRI scanner The hypnotic state was then broken and the procedure was repeated. Hypnosis was successful in reducing perceived pain in all of the individuals with participants reporting a significant reduction or no pain at all.

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind; people are often surprised that they hear every word and could get up and walk out of the room at any moment. Unless you enter a deeper state, you may not seem any different, just very relaxed. Most people are surprised at just how relaxing it is.
Hypnosis is very safe and depends upon your willingness to be receptive and responsive to suggestions given to you. Hypnosis will not make you do anything that you do not want to do. You are always in control. Hypnosis is a means of enhancing mind and body control.
Hypno-analgesia is likely to decrease acute and chronic pain in most individuals. Hypnosis can alleviate the sensory and/or affective components of a pain experience, which may be all that is required for acute pain.
During hypnosis you are in complete control of what you choose to reveal or conceal. Therefore you will not reveal to the hypnotherapist any secrets that you do not wish to share.
