Pain means that something is wrong with the body. The cause needs to be discovered first and foremost. Therefore it is important that you have discussed any of these issues with your medical professionals. This ensures that you have received the appropriate medical attention prior to seeking hypnotherapy to help you manage your levels of discomfort.
Pain which persists for six months or longer is termed chronic. Maybe associated with persistent headaches, migraines, tinnitus, phantom limb, dental work. Hypnosis can be used to alter your pain level, for whatever happens in your mind also happens in your body. What happens in your body also happens in your mind.
