You have seen extreme Yoga practitioners do it, pass large needles through their body parts with no pain and no bleeding. You have read how people under hypnosis can undergo dental procedures with no pain medication of any type. People with chronic pain seem to be able to reduce their suffering significantly utilizing hypnotic techniques and in some cases actually speed the bodies healing process. HOW DO THEY DO THAT??????
The process is actually very simple, by using a mindfulness relaxation discipline such as hypnosis a person is able to reduce their blood pressure to area of the body and make it go numb. Much the same as when you fall asleep on your arm the wrong way and cut the circulation off and the arm goes numb. This permits such procedures such as dental surgery to be carried out without pain and very little bleeding.
When it comes to such things as back pain the more it hurts the more the muscles tighten up and more irritation occurs. Usually a muscle relaxant drug is used to help reduce the irritation allowing the body to help repair itself. By using hypnosis a person is able to accomplish this relaxation with a mindfulness practice and reduce the pain without introducing any drugs.
After major surgery such as joint replacement or recovery from an accident the rehabilitation exercises are usually very painful and create major emotional crisis for a person interfering with such things as sleep and concentration. Hypnosis can be used to reduce the emotional burden to allow the client to sleep and relax which will in effect, speed up their healing time significantly. This is accomplished by reducing the person’s anxiety and allowing the body to heal faster while carrying out their rehab exercises.
How do I know this? Besides observing my clients accomplishing this, I have also experienced this for myself. A few years ago I severely burnt my hand on my wood burning stove and was prescribed T3 pain killers to allow me to sleep. I was also advised that I would have to go for plastic surgery and physio therapy because the pain would be too intense for me to move my hand. I utilized the Hypnotic pain control techniques with the use of no pain meds including the T3’s.. I was able to sleep and exercise my hand to maintain its mobility and increase the circulation to speed the healing process. Three weeks to the day of the accident ,I went for my appointment with the plastic surgeon. He was amazed that I had more flexibility in my burnt hand than my undamaged hand. The surgeon at that point sent me back to work with no surgery.
