Hypnotherapy for Pain Relief in Hounslow
Pain itself is an important part of life. In fact it plays a big part in your survival. Pain is our body’s way of letting us know that we are being damaged and we had better do something about it. Without this kind of pain, our very survival could be threatened.
It is when the pain signals are no longer useful, that we need some way of handling it more appropriately. Medication can only do so much, and there is some pain that even medication cannot control. Injury, headaches, back pain, arthritis and surgery are just some of the chronic pains that can make our lives very difficult.
While the pain may be localised in the body, the signals get sent from the site to the brain. The brain then interprets these signals and responds accordingly. The brain itself is capable of not only interpreting messages of pain that come from the body, but it can even initiate these messages independent of any physical cause.
If you have endured pain for any length of time, you are probably well aware of the feeling that you are condemned to suffering from the pain forever. This can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety that often co-exist with pain.
Hypnotherapy can help to manage pain.
Hypnotherapy has been used for pain control and pain management for hundreds of years. By using hypnotherapy, and then self-hypnosis, the client is taught to alter the brain’s perception of the pain, to turn down its intensity and even remove it completely for a while.
