When being in pain causes stress or being stressed worsens pain, therapies, including hypnosis and relaxation may help break the cycle. For pain therapists, these treatments, which focus on the relationship between the mind and body, are mainstream. For other professionals, they may be considered alternative or complementary therapies. Regardless of how they are labeled, there is evidence that for many people they work.
Clinical or medical hypnosis is more than fun and games. It is an altered state of awareness used by therapists to treat psychological or physical problems. During hypnosis, the conscious part of the brain is temperately tuned out as the person focuses on relaxation and letting go of distracting thoughts.
Research has shown medical hypnosis to be helpful for acute and chronic pain. In 1996 a panel of the National Institutes of Health found hypnosis to be effective in easing cancer pain. More recent studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in pain related to burns, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and reduction of anxiety associated with surgery.
For people in Central and South Mississippi, the services offered by the Hypnosis Center of Mississippi in allowing them alternatives to strong medications and being able to control their pain on their own is invaluable.
