Pain Management With Hypnosis

Hypnosis is an astonishingly effective way of reducing – and even removing – pain responses.

Hypnosis For Pain Management

Some of the most impressive footage you’ll see of hypnosis is where it is being used for pain control. I recently watched a program where a woman had two front teeth removed with only hypnosis for anesthesia – you can’t argue with that! But how is it done, and how can you begin to use hypnosis to reduce pain yourself?

Hypnosis has been used for centuries to control pain. From major amputations to the resetting of broken limbs, hypnosis is excellent for producing analgesia and anesthesia. ‘Analgesia’ is the absence of pain, whereas ‘anesthesia’ means absence of any sensation. In the latter part of the last century, surgeon and master hypnotist Jack Gibson performed over 2,000 operations using hypnosis while working in an emergency ward in Southern Ireland. He is but one example of hypnotists who, every day, all over the world, use the power of hypnosis to help people reduce pain levels. Before I describe to you some excellent hypnotic approaches for lowering or banishing pain, I first want to consider the phenomenon of pain itself. Pain is a signal that something needs attention. Pain should be taken seriously and never treated as just ‘all in the mind’. I only ever use hypnosis to help alleviate pain after the signal that something is wrong has been fully addressed. It’s vital that you – or anyone else – get checked out if you are in any kind of pain.
