The way we experience pain is very personal and sometimes varies due to internal and external factors such as how stressed we are or how tired for example. In the hypnotic state the way we experience pain can be changed and sometimes that pain can even be eliminated or at least turned down. While pain management hypnosis is usually concerned with the physical pain of injuries or other medical conditions, there is sometime an element of emotional pain too. Clearly our mindset can influence all of these factors and hypnotherapy for pain management (whether that be physical, emotional or a combination of the two) is designed to utilise the powerful mind-body connection to make a positive change. To put it another way, we can reprogram your subconscious mind to experience pain in a much more manageable way.
