Hypnotherapy for the Control of Pain
“Pain is a more terrible Lord of Mankind than even death itself“ (Dr Albert Schweitzer, 1931)
Hypnosis is a useful tool in the management of pain. A large number of clinical trials have demonstrated that hypnosis helps to relieve pain for cancer patients and after all kinds of surgery. Hypnosis works to reduce pain in the following ways:
Using relaxation can slow down some of the chemicals working within the nervous system, thus slowing down “pain” messages to the brain.
The anxiety that naturally accompanies pain is reduced.
Linda can also use a variety of other methods to assist you in gaining some control over your pain.
