One of the problems with chronic pain management is that the brain habituates to pain-killing drugs, so your body gets used to or immune to the drug, which then requires higher & higher doses.  Hypnosis works in a different way, causing the brain to stop responding to the Pain signals.

The management of chronic pain can be helped greatly by Hypnotherapy & NLP.  Psychological approaches such as hypnosis & pain relief have been well documented over the years.


Your body feels pain because it serves a useful purpose.  Pain is a signal from your body to your brain, telling it that something is wrong & causing it to take some sort of action to stop the pain & move away from possible danger.  


Chronic pain is a serious & debilitating.  If you suffer from ongoing pain then you should see your doctor as soon as possible to seek diagnosis & treatment if available.

Persistent pain can have a devastating effect.  You may feel tired, frustrated, irritable & often depressed, as well as anxious, stressed, fearful & worried.
