Pain and Hypnotherapy

Chronic pain is estimated to affect between one-third and one-half of the population of the UK, yet the American Psychological Association, consider hypnotherapy is likely to be effective for most people suffering from diverse forms of pain. This is supported by an ever-increasing amount of strong research evidence showing the effectiveness of hypnotherapy in treating a wide range of pain types and management applications. For many years, those experiencing pain were treated within the ‘biomedical’ model.  The emergence of the ‘biopsychosocial’ model offers a broader range of treatment and management options, including hypnotherapy.

What is it used for?

Hypnotherapy pain management can be used to effectively alleviate chronic and acute pain within the therapy session. Clients can also learn how to apply self-care and use pain management techniques both within self-hypnosis and in the alert state. This empowers the client to enhance their own quality of life and enables them to relieve their discomfort part beyond the therapy session. Clients can experience significant decreases in their level of pain, whether relating to injury (e.g. sunburn, fracture pain) health conditions (e.g. headache, low back pain, bruxism pain), disease (e.g. cancer pain) or procedural pain (pre, during and post medical and surgical procedures and interventions)
