Chronic Pain

The Bad News 

Chronic pain, which continues beyond the usual time to recover from an injury, usually involves inter-related factors and requires more complex treatment than that for acute pain.

The Good News

There is a lot you can do without the use of drugs. 

Did you know that the sensation of pain comes from your brain? Pain is a signal that something needs attention. Pain should be taken seriously and never treated as just ‘all in the mind’.  

But did you also know that you can retrain your brain to put an end to the suffering caused by chronic pain?  

In my hypnosis office I teach people just like you hypnosis for pain control so that you can reduce or even eliminate persistent pain. 

Using pain control hypnosis, you change your relationship with pain and you will also change your physical experience of pain. Unlike medications, talk therapy, and medical devices, self-hypnosis is a skill that once learned, is always available for use at any given moment.  

Another huge advantage is that there is no risk that you might have a serious “side effect,” forget to take a medication, have batteries fail, or have a pain flare-up without having helpful resources available. 

Hypnosis gives you an additional tool to manage your pain.  

At The Hypnosis Center of Howard County, you will learn self-hypnosis to use on your own whenever pain strikes.  

I used the strategies you gave me and had no problems at all.

Thank you! I've been recommending you to everyone. *

Hypnosis for Chronic Pain

Thirteen studies conducted by the University of Washington School of Medicine and reported by the National Institutes of Health found that hypnosis consistently produce significant decreases in pain associated with a variety of chronic-pain problems.

The Arthritis Foundation has reported that more than 75% of people with arthritis and related diseases experience significant pain relief using hypnosis. 

The American Psychological Association has reported that hypnosis works as part of a treatment program for a number of conditions with pain relief being one of the most researched areas. 

Studies have shown clinical hypnosis and self-hypnosis to be effective as adjunct treatments for children in pain. Examples include painful medical procedures, such as bone marrow aspiration and lumbar puncture in pediatric cancer patients, postoperative pain and anxiety in children undergoing surgery, and chronic headache.
