  • How simple words and hypnotic suggestions can change the pain.
  • Mastering Pain is to understand the differences in the nature and management of chronic and acute pain.
  • Pain can be sorted into three main types: Acute, Chronic, and Cancer pain.
  • All who suffer from pain have a right to pain.
  • Hypnosis can dramatically alter an individual’s perception of pain, and its value as a clinical technique has been well documented.
  • The importance in controlling pain is to limit suffering and to preserve hope.
  • Empowering the Pain Client by Releasing Their Inner Pharmacy EMS System (Endorphins, Melatonin, Serotonin).

Hypnosis, as evidenced by its multi-centennial history, is one of the first and foremost enduring modalities in the management of organic pain problems.

In proper perspective, hypnosis may not only relieve pain, but may also help to maintain the dignity and the well being of the patient/client without dependence on large quantities of medication.
