Hypnosis is a safe and effective treatment for the management of persistent nonmalignant pain.” – American Medical Association

Chronic pain is the body’s way of informing us that it is not at peace; you are in distress (the body is in disharmony). In some cases, it’s an aftereffect of an injury that appears to have healed or a lingering symptom of a past illness. And in other cases, chronic pain develops out of the blue, with no link to trauma or disease. Often when you try to explain it, chronic pain is something of a mystery. Tests and examinations may uncover nothing abnormal, but your body’s distress is real.

Over time, a chronic illness takes its toll not only on the body but also on the mind and spirit. Anxiety, discouragement, and depression are common consequences of dealing with chronic pain.

There is much research and medical acknowledgment that much of chronic pain is a result of the body storing negative memories. Gary Craig, the founder of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or sometimes called Meridian Tapping, says: “Our unresolved negative emotions contribute significantly to most physical pains and diseases. When we are unable to express emotions such as anger, resentment, and grief, they are swallowed and repressed. They later show up in the body as pain and illness.”

According to Bessel A. Van der Kolk, Harvard Review of Psychiatry, wrote: “Ever since people’s responses to overwhelming experiences have been systematically explored, researchers have noted that a trauma is stored in somatic memory and expressed as changes in the biological stress response.”

John Sarno, MD, has written extensively concerning the Mind-Body connection relating chronic pain to negative energy stored in the body. Below you will find a list of his published books on the subject:

  • Healing Back Pain: The Mind – Body Connection
  • The Divided Mind: The Epidemic of Mind – Body Disorders
  • The Mind – Body Prescription: Healing the Body – Healing the Pain
  • Mind Over Back Pain

I want to make sure you understand the concept. The pain is real, often a result of an accident or injury; itʼs not just in your head. After a short period of time, the pain should release; however, it often lingers for weeks, months, and even years. So let us discuss the role of Hypnosis in releasing the energy around the memories which will result in the easing and releasing of the pain.

Hypnotherapy does not take the place of qualified medical care, but it can be a valuable adjunct to medical treatment for this condition. Hypnosis can help alleviate painful symptoms and help your body to work at its best, and you can become more relaxed through the day and therefore improve focus and concentration.

Hypnosis assists chronic pain sufferers in obtaining deeper levels of relaxation, which often leads to more peaceful sleep, increased energy levels, and diminished pain. It can help you learn to manage your pain. It can keep you motivated to do the exercises needed for flexibility and movement. Hypnosis can help you function for longer periods of time without the discomfort you have experienced in the past. The unconscious mind handles the automatic body functions, and hypnosis can encourage those systems to operate at their best. Chronic pain does not have to rule your life.

I will work with you using many tools to help you manage your pain. We will use Gentle Suggestive Hypnosis to relax the body and bring healing energy to the pain receptors. I use imagery and feelings to relax the pain. Healing Regression Hypnotherapy will find and release any stored negative emotions that may be buried in the subconscious mind. Finding the root cause of the emotion is important to release the stored pain and make way for healing. EFT or meridian tapping is a modality that is very effective in relieving pain. I will teach you how to use this tool for everyday relief.

I record the hypnosis portion of your session on your iPod or a CD while you are being hypnotized. At the end of the session, you receive this recording to take home with you, and the more that you listen to this recording, the faster you will see results. The key to transformation is repetition. The more you see, hear, and feel your body healing, the more it becomes real for you.
