Managing Chronic Pain with Hypnotherapy

Chronic Pain Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis with Experienced Medical Doctor Hypnotherapist Chester

Control Chronic Pain with Hypnosis

Natural, Safe and Powerful Treatment for Pain without Strong Drugs or Side Effects

Pain is a highly complex symptom. In some situations, pain can be helpful, alerting us to tissue damage or injury so that we can seek the appropriate help we need.

When pain becomes persistent and long-lasting, it is highly debilitating and causes stress, depression, anxiety, poor sleep, disablilty, even isolation. Persistent pain negatively impacts on mental health and every area of life, including relationships, work, hobbies and interests.
 

Advanced Hypnotherapy: A Powerful Approach to Pain Management

When pain has been present for a long time, many changes occur within the body and the nervous system. It is as if the brain and body has got into the 'bad habit' of perceiving pain when acute tissue damage has long since resolved or healed. Advanced hypnotherapy can be an excellent way to 're-educate' and reset the mind's perception of the pain signal's - turn down the intensity of the perceived pain.

As an Hypnosis Pain Management Specialist Practitioner, experienced Medical Hypnotherapist, Medical Doctor and Advanced Pain Coach, I have helped very many people over my years of practice find freedom from their struggles with chronic pain and gain mastery over their comfort.

As a rare full-time hypnotherapist in the UK who is also a qualified medical doctor, I am regularly referred clients struggling with pain via GPs, hospital consultants, physiotherapists etc many of whom have already seen numerous specialists, including Pain Specialist Consultants and therapists previously with little success.

Most clients are very keen to find natural, safe and effective ways to improve and manage their pain so that they can minimise strong pain-killing medications, many of which are addictive,  or avoid often painful and risky pain procedures, such as nerve blocks, injections or surgery.

I am experienced worked with clients struggling with the full range of different types of pain issue. such as cancer pain, post-injury pain, spinal / neurological damage, painful neurolopathies, phantom limb pain, pain associated with paraplegia,  IBS pain and other functional pains, Atypical facial pain, Chronic pelvic pain syndromes and so many more. Some clients will present with medically unexplained pain.

Regardless of the type of pain, advanced hypnotherapy treatment, coupled with teaching my clients applied mindfulness techniques, guided visualisation /imagery, self hypnosis and others powerful methods as appropriate, can bring substantial  relieve and help clients find comfort.

Certainly the research evidence that hypnotherapy helps with pain relief is substantial and well recognised. The public are often aware of the cases where surgery has been performed under hypnotic anaesthesia alone and if the power of the mind is so great, you too can learn to use the power of your phenomenal mind to bring you the comfort you were born to enjoy.

Pain can be classified briefly into 3 types, with some overlap:

  1. Nociceptive pain arises from various kinds of trouble in tissues, reported to the brain by the nervous system.This is the type of pain most people are familiar with for example, burns, bone fractures, repetitive strain injuries, cancer, tumours, and inflammatory arthritis. Nociceptive pain typically changes with movement, position, and load and has particular characteristics.
     
  2. Neuropathic pain arises from damage to the nervous system itself, central or peripheral, either from disease, injury, or pinching. The simplest neuropathies are mechanical insults, like sciatica, but this catagory includes anything that damages nerve cells, from multiple sclerosis to chemotherapy to alcoholism to phantom limb pain. It’s often stabbing, electrical, or burning, but nearly any quality of pain is possible. 
  3. 'Other' - Some common kinds of pain are not a great fit for either of the two official categories above and as medicine loves to classify, these types of pain are often classified as 'Other'. A prime example is the pain of fibromyalgia. Historically these types of problem have often been called “functional pain disorders' (meaning pain is perceived in the apparent absence of structural diseas or obvious tissue damage on tests) Other major examples include Complex Regional Pain Syndromes(CRPS), non-specific chronic low back pain, irritable bowel syndrome, primary (unexplained) headache etc.

 

Hypnotherapy for Pain Control can safely be used alongside pain killers and other conventional medical treatments if consulting a medical hypnotherapist with experience in managing combined pain management approaches.
