Hypnosis for Pain Management
Hypnosis for pain management is not a newly invented therapy, but in fact has been used with great success for more than two centuries in the west. Using hypnosis as a tool for pain relief is not experimental, it is in fact, true and proven.
There are two types of pain, acute and chronic. Acute pain is a necessary function because it signals that the body is in danger while chronic persistent pain is pain that has outlived its usefulness. More than 50 million Americans are partially or fully disabled by chronic pain.

It is empowering and skills-based.
It allows for the release of harmful beliefs, trauma and habits as well as empower patients to learn how to lower their pain as needed.
