RELIEF FROM CHRONIC PAIN
Pain is a signal. It usually signals physical danger, or that something needs attending to. For serious persistent pain, please have your doctor check it out before your session at our office. Our techniques do not take the place of traditional medicine, but they are a wonderful complement. There are many cases of persistent painful sensation where the signal is not serving a useful purpose any longer. In many cases the traditional practitioner can’t do much except prescribe pain medication, which is not a sustainable long term solution.
Your perception of painful sensation is affected by the meaning you attach to it, and the degree that you focus on it. You may fear that it will get worse, recall memories of past experiences, worry about the cause, etc. These things have a tremendous impact on how the painful sensation affects you. And this is where Hypnosis is such a powerful option for people to know about. When everything that can be done and should be done has been done, then it’s perfectly fine to let go of the painful feelings. Hypnosis can help you change your perception of pain and morph it into a minor annoyance or even delete it from your awareness. Let me give you some simple examples of how your Kinesthetic (feeling) perceptions can be altered.
Have you ever frantically looked all over the place for your glasses and then finally realized that you were wearing them? How could you forget a sensation that was so familiar? Actually, we do this all the time as we change our focus of attention.
Or another: I bet you weren’t aware of the feeling of your shirt collar (or blouse) touching the back of your neck until I mentioned it just now.
Or here’s another one: Have you ever gone to a lecture or performance and found the seat to be really uncomfortable? The more you thought about it, the more uncomfortable you got, until the performance started---and then you got so absorbed in the performance that you forgot all about the uncomfortable seat!
You have this natural ability to change your perception of discomfort already. Our techniques take this natural ability and amplify it in the way that will help you the most.
