When we feel pain, it’s our natural survival mechanism kicking in, telling us that we’ve been damaged, so we can act fast. Acute pain typically occurs after an injury or illness, and the pain reduces and eventually resolves once the injury has healed. Without this reaction and useful purpose our survival would be threatened.
When pain serves no useful purpose, and becomes chronic and persistent, it is exhausting and will affect you physically and emotionally, often leading to stress, insomnia and anxiety. Daily activities become difficult and overwhelming, this means you’re unable to enjoy life as you used to.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you reduce your general levels of anxiety by helping focus on how you want things to be. As you feel calmer and less anxious it can help alter the brain’s perception of the pain message. Sessions are consolidated with hypnosis to bring about therapeutic change at a subconscious level, helping to turn down the pain intensity and enable the body’s natural pain control mechanism.
