Imagine being able to use your mind to manage pain by utilizing the body’s natural pain killing endorphins.
When you experience pain, you may ask
“What’s the safest way to reduce or eliminate my pain?”
“Why do some people have a higher tolerance for pain?”
“The side effects of my pain medication are scary, is there a natural way to reduce pain?”
Being able to access and then activate the natural pain controlling resources in your body
Being able to control mild to severe pain, without strong medications
Using the body’s natural abilities to manage pain and accelerate the healing and recovery process following surgery
Pain management hypnosis has been proven to work on reducing the pain that a person experiences. The pain killers that reside in your body are responsible for this. These natural pain killers are endorphins. Let’s look at the origin of the name endorphin. Endorphin is the name for one of the brain’s neurotransmitters. When this neurotransmitter was first isolated in 1974, it was called endogenous morphine. This is just a medical phrase meaning morphine produced by the body, or the body’s morphine. Endorphin is an amalgam of the two words.
Pain Management Hypnosis
Pain management hypnotherapy can access this natural morphine in your body and train your mind to access and activate the appropriate neurotransmitter to reduce the pain that you feel. The pituitary gland and the hypothalamus produce endorphins naturally during activities such as exercise (the so-called runner’s high is an example), being in love which can produce a bit of an adrenalin rush, as well as experiencing and orgasm.
Like real morphine, endorphins produce good feelings, blocking out the bad feelings. In this case, pain. Your nerve endings send messages to your spinothalamic tract. These nerve endings receive their messages from sensations that affect your body. The sensations activate the nerve endings which then transmit the messages to the spinothalamic tract, a pathway through your spinal cord.
The spinal cord is also called white matter. In the white matter, there are fibers that then transmit the message to your neurons which transmit the information to your thalamus. There are four main categories of messages — pain, itch, touch and temperature. Have you ever hurt yourself and felt that initial numbness before the pain kicks in? The delay between the painful hit and the sensation of pain is due to endorphins.
As the nerve endings send their messages to your spinal cord, your body releases endorphins that slow down the next transmission of the pain signal to your thalamus. Relieve pain hypnosis raises your level of endorphins. You can see how the pain message is intercepted in your spinal cord by the increased level of endorphins and the overall pain sensation is mitigated by your body’s natural morphine.
Coupled with this natural relief from pain are the messages that relieve pain hypnotherapy sends to your subconscious. So as well as the natural physical relief from pain, your subconscious is diminishing your mental reaction to pain. Both the mind and the body are working together to manage pain. As your body actually feels less pain, your mind picks up on the cessation of intense pain and begins to embrace the inner positive messages.
Your subconscious assures you that you are not feeling pain and the release of endorphins ensures that pain is diminished. If you are scheduled for surgery, or know someone else who is, consider surgical recovery hypnosis to accelerate the healing process and manage the pain.
Pain management hypnosis trains your subconscious mind to turn on the body’s natural production of endorphins to reduce pain and to diminish how your mind reacts to pain to and manages pain. Relieve pain hypnosis can decrease your need for pain medications, and accelerate healing and recovery after surgery or injury.
