Hypnosis is emerging as a fibromyalgia (FM) treatment. Some FM sufferers use hypnosis to master their minds, and their debilitating chronic pain. Hypnosis, according to research on hypnotherapy for FM, has been proven to be a successful new treatment for pain management.
Some treatments found helpful for the pain of fibromyalgia:
- Exercise. Regular exercise has proven one of the best treatments.
- Regular sleeping habits. This is critical for reducing pain and improving energy and mood
- Relaxation techniques.
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Acupuncture or massage.
- The Feldenkrais Method.
A little-known fact about pain is this: most of what we perceive as pain is not caused by the injury or disease. Most pain is caused by the restriction or blockage of blood flow (hence: oxygen) to the painful area. When muscles relax, blood-flow increases back to its normal level. Pain is relieved.
When muscles relax, the blood-flow is restored. Result: reduction of pain. This is especially true for fibromyalgia, which is little-understood. However, what we do know is that the relaxation of the muscles reduces pain levels.
The restoration of blood-flow also encourages restored nerve activity. Reduction of perceived pain level.
Relaxation causes the release of serotonin, which in turn creates the release of endorphins: the body’s own natural pain-killer.
Hypnosis can alter the pain signal messages from pain to a mild warmth or tingling or any other preferable sensation. If hypnosis can make you forget a number or your name, it can make you “forget” your pain. Pain reduction.
If these facts have not yet convinced you, why don’t you schedule a free consultation. I can explain more. Or think about purchasing an hypnosis MP3 recording for pain relief. Look on the tab above: Hypnosis Recordings.
