Hypnosis For Chronic Pain Management

For chronic pain management, I will help you experience the affects of hypnosis-induced pain reduction. Then you will be taught self-hypnosis so that you can create the reduction of pain yourself. Individual results vary depending on the origin of the pain. Sometimes the pain is eliminated, or reduced, or reduced to the point where less medication is required, leading to a higher quality of life.

Hypnosis For Stress and Anxiety Relief

Hypnosis for stress and anxiety reduction is a wonderful way to begin to move toward health and healing. Stress and anxiety are one of the greatest friends of disease. Through learning self-hypnosis and other hypnotherapeutic techniques, you can begin to feel a lifting of everyday stress and anxiety or reduction of stress and anxiety related to illness. Hypnosis for stress relief is also recommended for caregivers.

Hypnosis has also been demonstrated effective in many other medical situations, including some skin conditions.

Hypnosis For Managing Depression Associated with Chronic Illness

One commonly overlooked area in which hypnotherapy can be very useful in medical situations is dealing with the mental health of the patient. Depressed patients do not seem to heal or bounce back from illnesses like patients who are mentally healthy. Hypnotherapy can help the depressed patient regain their will to live or recover.
