Living with chronic pain can be very debilitating.

If you’re living with chronic pain, you’re familiar with the suffering, physical limitations, emotional distress and reduced quality of life it causes. You know how it can affect all areas of your life, interfering significantly with your normal activities such as work and social life.

If you’ve been suffering with chronic pain for months (if not years) it can be hard to know if you will ever experience any relief.

What if there was a treatment that could help to substantially reduce your pain?

“There is no pain in the body; it’s only in the brain,” Dr Olafur Palsson

In many cases of chronic pain, the signals being sent from the body are no longer serving a useful purpose, (because the area they’re coming from has healed) or they’re excessive or too intense. And because the signals no longer serve a purpose they can be stopped or changed.

One way to change the pain is with medication. However, chronic pain is extremely complex and is difficult to treat with medications alone. So, what if there was a treatment that could work along side your medication to help you to substantially reduce your pain?

A treatment that taps into the fact that the feeling of pain is created in the brain from signals sent from the body. Those signals are your body’s way of alerting you to harm and making you take care of yourself, so you don’t exacerbate the damage and can protect the area so it can heal.

So, what is this pain reducing treatment?


Hypnotherapy for pain relief is not new. It has been used for pain relief for centuries. It was the first anesthetic and is still used today for minor operations or dental treatments. It is tried, tested and safe – and can help:

  1. Reduce the intensity and/or unpleasantness of pain, often substantially
  2. Reduce the stress and anxiety related to pain
  3. Boost energy and motivation to get moving again

Recent research studies have confirmed that the effects of hypnotic suggestions on brain activity are real.

Research also confirms that when hypnosis suggestions are combined with other pain treatments, those other treatments become more effective.

So how do hypnosis suggestions create these real results?

“To retrain your brain out of pain, you have to break old habits and patterns.” ~

Hypnosis suggestions can be focused on relieving specific types of pain, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, complex regional pain syndrome, or on chronic pain management in general.

Targeted hypnosis suggestions change the way in which your brain habitually interprets and responds to the sensory pain signals sent from your body. As a result, you feel more ease, feel calmer and more relaxed throughout the day, sleep more soundly at night, and generally feel so much better in yourself.

Another benefit of hypnotherapy is that unlike with medications there are no side effects from experiencing pain reduction hypnotherapy.

Important: Because hypnotherapy is effective at reducing pain, it’s important that before you seek hypnotherapy for pain relief, you get a formal chronic pain diagnosis from your GP or medical specialist and confirmation that the pain is not a symptom of an illness or disease.
