Pain and Hypnotherapy

How does Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy help in chronic pain management?

Do you prefer non-drug related remedies or alternative therapies for chronic pain management for yourself, a family member or a loved one?

While chronic pain tends to be more prevalent amongst older people, it is also commonly related to headaches, post-surgical pain, lower-back pain, cancer related pain, arthritis, and disability related pain.

The severity and frequency of chronic pain may vary but overall people affected by it face considerable suffering, physical limitations, and emotional distress.

And, despite treatment with analgesics and physical modalities, chronic pain often persists and is therefore a common reason for the use of complimentary or alternative therapies.

The resurgence of Hypnotherapy in modern day science.

Over the years, hypnosis has gone through several periods of adoption and rejection and various researchers came up with different theories of what hypnosis is and how it could be used.

Fast forward to the 21st century, and we now see growing interest in hypnosis as a therapy for pain management as evidence strongly suggests it can significantly help reduce pain.

In fact, research finds that Hypnotherapy is now commonly used by medical professionals as a pain management remedy.

Record of hypnotherapy usage in pain-relief

Hypnotherapy was first used in the early 1800’s by Liebault and Bernheim to treat sciatica. It was primarily used for relieving pain during an operation by Dr. Henry Munro. With the help of hypnosis, Dr. Munro could surgically operate on the patients by using 10% of the normal dose of ether.

Pain-relief areas where there is use of hypnosis

Research has shown that Hypnotherapy is effective in pain management. It is specifically successful in those areas where patients are allergic to analgesic. It is also used for controlling pain in some complicated conditions such as burns, muscular-skeletal disorder, post-surgery pain, and facial neuralgia. Even ordinary bouts of body ache, excruciating pain due to toothache or headache can be reduced by hypnosis. Certain operative procedures that are life-saving like cardio-vascular surgery, caesarean section, thyroidectomies and hysterectomies can utilise hypnosis to alleviate pain. Researchers from the United States National Institute of Health in 1996 have shown that hypnosis is beneficial for easing even the most chronic cancer related pain. The latest analysis provided by Mt. Sinai Medicine School of New York has justified the efficiency of hypnosis in the pain management, making it useful to reduce pains related to rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and cancer.

Hypnotherapy Techniques for pain-relief

Several methods such as Rhythm,  Imagery and Monotony are used as the tools in hypnosis for relieving pain. Another important technique is self-hypnosis, which is used by any person to generate positive thinking and for mitigating pain. Metaphor, suggestion, visualization are also effective in alleviating pain.

Hypnosis is not a miracle remedy or a stand-alone cure. When it is used together with the pain-relieving drugs. However, health care professionals have found good results with a lower dose of pain medication required. It is regarded highly valuable in cases of surgery-anxiety and drug-allergy.

Clinical research has shown that hypnotherapy as a healing modality, to be an effective management tool for pain.

Here's what our clients have to say

Have been seeing linda for a few months now and has changed my life for the better greatly! I was sceptical at first but Linda made me feel so comfortable and she really is great at what she does My issue was with alcohol and no longer is an issue for me. Thanks again Linda

I was a habitual worrier. If all was ok my mind would search for the next problem. I came out of my second session with Linda and this had disappeared. I felt light. I had a realisation that whatever my situation, I had a choice. It was highly liberating and has persevered. I ended up studying hypnosis and have a new respect for what Linda helped me achieve. She's genuine and down to earth. Thanks Linda

Linda is a very experienced practitioner in the field. I feel very lucky to have had support from such a seasoned professional. Thank you for all you have done to help me progress Linda. It is much appreciated.

It’s been 8 weeks smoke free and the idea of picking up a cigarette is so unappealing I now sometimes wonder how I was ever a smoker. My skin is better, I'm not carrying around guilt every day, I don't stink, I'm not as anxious, basically I'm so happy it's all behind me and count my lucky stars I don't have to live that smoker life anymore. I think I was really ready to quit this time, and can't thank Linda enough for helping me make that happen. I didn't know if I had the strength to quit for good, but the session we did reminded me just how strong I am. Thank you millions and millions Linda, that one afternoon in your chair has changed my life and helped me kick a habit I've struggled with for over 10 years. Thank you so very much 🙏🙏

In 2008 I visited Linda in her Subiaco clinic to treat a psychological tick involving constant jaw clenching/clicking (probably around 200 times per day - for years). After just 1 session it stopped dead immediately - 100%. It has now remained a forgotten habit for 9 years... had I not gone to her, I would have probably developed an arthritic jaw by now!

Wow! There are no words that can really express my transformation after a few sessions with Linda. When I initially came to see Linda, I was suffering from anxiety and depression from a number of traumatic experiences I had been through in recent years. My anxiety and depression had started impacting my work, relationships and health. I averaged 2 HRS of sleep a night and sat on my couch every painfully stricken day, debilitated by everything that was going on. After my first session, I drove out of Linda’s office feeling light as a feather; I slept like a baby that night and signed up to a gym. By my 3rd session, I was comfortable with speaking to a group of people, I was sleeping regularly and had a huge motivation to go to the gym six days a week. Not only is my life on track, I am following my dreams. Things that I promised myself I would do one day, I am already doing. What stood out for me, was that Linda’s work taught my inner being to help myself, rather than rely on other people to help me find my way. Linda’s work not only instantaneously helped me, the effects of Linda’s work has unfolded over the last 3 months. Thank you Linda. You are truly a blessing.
