Old pain can be described like a fire alarm that is still running long after the fire has been put out. The pain is genuinely felt, but the unconscious keeps firing the signal unnecessarily. This can be turned down to a more comfortable level or even switched off completely.
The feeling of chronic pain can be very stressful and can be associated with common side effects such as stress, anxiety and disturbed sleep.
Through hypnosis I can change the thought patterns related to pain by reducing any pain induced stress, this can make a huge difference to pain perception.
Pain often has an emotional content to it and the relief of the feelings of pain can be accompanied by an overall feeling of wellbeing and freedom.
