Pain and anxiety have a long history of being treated effectively with hypnosis and guided imagery. Numerous studies show that guided imagery and hypnotherapy can be effective in managing anxiety symptoms and pain. That makes hypnotherapy or our audio options to consider if you are coping with chronic pain or anxiety.
Coping with any kind of pain –and especially post-surgical pain, chronic pain or migraines– can be challenging. Chronic pain is wearing and can significantly interfere with quality of life. Pain is created in the brain, sometimes without obvious causes. Because it’s created in the brain, it makes sense that the brain can be used to eliminate it, as well. And in fact, Medicine is learning that the brain can actually reprogram itself to let go of the pain.
A California physician who specializes in helping patients with serious pain learned this firsthand after a terrible accident left him in constant, severe pain. He taught himself to use visualization to stop his pain. Over time and with constant practice, this doctor became pain-free and remains so today.
One-on-one hypnotherapy via Skype or in person can help those with chronic pain or anxiety. Contact ccassara(at)gmail.com and let’s talk about it.
So can our audios. Guided imagery (which is really self-hypnosis) is a way for you to learn to use the mind’s power to control pain in the body or anxiety and to set the tone for positive surgical recovery. We have three options: One audio program in this series is meant strictly for pain, another for anxiety and the third is for pre- and post-surgery for anxiety, pain, and recovery.
If you’re preparing for surgery, our surgery audio helps set you up for less pain and a positive outcome. In fact, after using our audio, one patient reported that his doctor had warned that it would be a painful recovery, but he experienced absolutely no pain and was released early from both the hospital and his doctor’s care.
After purchasing any of our guided imagery audios, simply download the recording onto your device, insert earphones and listen during treatment, before surgery or anytime at all, as long as you aren’t driving or doing something else that requires your full attention.
While these techniques are not intended as a substitute for medical attention, they can be helpful in managing your discomfort and improving quality of life. By helping you engage the connection between your mind and your body. They’re certainly worth a try.
