When you suffer from chronic pain it's easy to feel alone so you may be surprised to know that 57.7% of the British population have sought medical help for pain relief. Common prescription medications for pain relief such as Tramadol and Co-codamol can cause side effects such as drowsiness and nausea as well as being addictive. You, like many others in the UK, may wish to manage your pain without relying on medication with the use of hypnosis.
The use of hypnosis for pain management has been widely used for centuries. One of the leading pioneers in hypnotherapy Dr Milton Erikson used his own skills to manage his own chronic pain through two bouts of polio.
Hypnotherapy enables the brain to reduce the amount of pain signals it responds to and you will learn new skills to manage pain for whenever the need arises.
