Hypnosis and Pain Relief
Hypnosis can help with managing pain. However, before working with a pain management client, I ask for a doctor’s authorization.
In hypnosis, the mind can dissociate from the site of the pain. The client can use self-hypnosis, which is taught during the session, to help diminish or redirect the intensity of the pain that they are experiencing. By using self-hypnosis, the client can also manage the stress and anxiety associated with elevated pain levels.
During the session, clients are taught self-hypnosis thus gaining control through their subconscious mind.
