Humanity is unfortunately no stranger to pain. Regardless of where you live in the world, the socio-economic status you hold or your perceived level of happiness, you can be guaranteed that without fail you will experience some degree of pain in your physical body at some time during your lifetime.

What is Pain?
Pain comes in many forms, the most obvious being physical pain, in which a person experiences feelings of discomfort or hurt within the body. Not all physical pain is bad, nor is it necessarily associated with illness; ask any woman who has been through the birthing process, or a child proudly showing off their new tooth. Similarly, the pains felt when you break your arm, cut your finger or haul yourself out of bed after doing 200 sit-ups the previous day are all normal and healthy messages. Your body in its automatic self-preservation mode is alerting you to the fact that it has experienced trauma – just in case you hadn’t noticed!

Chronic Pain
However, some physical pain can become chronic. Chronic pain is pain that continues day in, day out, without any signs that the problem is resolving itself! Do you know what I’m referring to? It may have at its roots a long-term or presently incurable illness, or may have been brought about by injury or even a former operation. Some chronic pain may not even have an evident source; however its existence is keenly felt.

People who live with chronic pain will often testify that it affects their quality of life. It can physically prevent them from being able to participate in various activities of normal life, which then often leads to feelings of helplessness or even depression. For some, there seems to be no escape from the endless state of pain.

Chronic Pain Management for a Better Life
If the feelings I have just described sound familiar as a sufferer of chronic pain, I am sure that you would welcome any reasonable solution to help alleviate – and potentially remove – your symptoms. Some sufferers are willing to try any manner of pills, remedies and therapies in the hope of finding relief. They often turn to medication or even surgery in their quest for chronic pain management, but somewhere in the subconscious mind, the pain is still very real.

Pain Relief Hypnosis
I recommend that you consider pain relief hypnotherapy. It has been clinically documented that pain relief hypnosis works. In a report published in 2001, The British Psychological Society found that “…hypnotic procedures are effective in the management and relief of both acute and chronic pain and in assisting in the alleviation of pain, discomfort and distress due to medical and dental procedures and childbirth”.

As a pain relief hypnotherapist, I utilise the techniques of Hypnosis and NLP to change the way in which those pain signals are processed by the brain. As an outcome, the pain you perceive or feel will either be greatly reduced or controlled. How is this possible? Put simply, when you are in a relaxed state, your body is calmer – and when your body is calmer, the pain you feel is lessened.


Pain relief hypnosis offers a distraction from the pain you are feeling by allowing you to experience an altered state of mind. It is a very natural and non-invasive method of healing for both body and mind. There are many benefits to undergoing pain relief hypnotherapy; perhaps one of the most attractive – other than the relief experienced, of course – is that hypnosis offers a healing option which is non-medication based and therefore not habit-forming.
