Q. How can hypnosis be used for pain management?
A. There are several steps to working with pain management. First, I teach clients a daily self-hypnosis process with techniques specifically designed for pain management. Then, we usually have to go back and process or heal the source or roots of the pain and any associated emotional connections. That step sometimes includes doing some forgiveness work. Sometimes, processing the roots can create significant changes in the way a person feels about themselves and the discomfort they were experiencing.
Working with pain management usually takes about four sessions. Some people hope that they can go in for one session and the hypnotist can simply rewire all this programming, but as you can imagine, it doesn't work that way. You do have to address and process the issues.
To do this work, hypnotists must have a form signed by the client’s doctor. You can usually just fax the form to the doctor for a signature, ask them to fax it back to you, and then bring it with you to your first appointment. The form is the medical.pdf form on my web site at http://www.rmhypnotherapy.com/Come_to_Denver.php.
