Pain affects everything: mood, relationships, careers, family, finances, self-esteem and confidence, just to name a few.
Pain creates stress, and stress creates more pain – a vicious cycle that can be broken or modified. Chronic pain affects an estimated 100 million people in this country alone, nearly one third of our entire population.
The Reign of Pain Abides Mainly in the Brain.
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis can take the hurt out of pain. Hypnosis for pain relief is an amazing tool that when used, produces measurable results in pain relief. Hypnosis is the most dramatic of the external sources to overcome pain. Cortisol is the stress hormone which when received in small amounts, protects. However, in large amounts over time, it can cause arthritis and other chronic pain syndromes. The beauty of hypnosis is that it decreases cortisol levels.
Many of us live with unnecessary pain. Direct Path Hypnosis is on a mission to help people better understand it, subsequently learning to live without it. Any knowledge that brings clients into a clearer appreciation of their condition, decreases their anxiety. The fear of pain is often times worse than the pain itself. In short, change the mind, change the brain, change the pain. Along with the fact that it decreases cortisol levels, hypnosis is probably the most powerful non-narcotic tool we have to help people move from a state of discomfort to a neutral state or a state of comfort. Comfort has a way of spreading and generalizing, just as discomfort and pain does. Once you get the comfort ball rolling, so to speak, it builds momentum and keeps rolling.
