We all know the unpleasant feeling of pain. Pain is a protective mechanism, motivating a person to withdraw from damaging situations, to protect a damaged body part while undergoing healing and to avoid similar experiences. It is the body’s way of keeping you safe, like an alarm to tell you that something is wrong.
Most pain resolves once the painful stimulus is removed and the body has healed, but sometimes pain persists, despite the apparent healing of the body.
Persistent pain causes no useful purpose and the messages we receive from our alarm system linked to long term conditions such as arthritis or migraines for example are simply not needed and can have a huge impact on a person’s quality of life. It can affect everything, from our ability to work, to our sleep patterns and mood.
Part of this process is connected to our emotions, which means that negative emotions can have an effect on how we experience pain. If we are angry, upset or depressed the pain will be worse. The opposite is also true, if we feel happy and positive the pain can seem to be less and we are more able to cope.
I use several techniques to deal with pain, with the fastest method being EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT is one of the most exciting recent discoveries in pain management to emerge in the last decade. Properly applied, an approximate 80% of people achieve noticeable to complete pain relief, sometimes within minutes and the results are often long lasting. I aim to teach all my clients how to use and become confident with EFT, so the effects can be achieved even without intervention.
Without medication, surgery or any other medical intervention, you can conquer pain with EFT, which achieves such dramatic relief because it deals directly with two causes of pain that are largely outside the medical approach; disruptions to the body's energy system and the effect of negative emotion. This is why EFT is so effective and will often work for pain relief when nothing else will.
Hypnosis and NLP can also be hugely effective at helping change the way that the pain signals in the body are recieved. I use a unique combination of Hypnotherapy, EFT and NLP to deal with pain directly, meaning that the results can be dramatic and lead to a significant reduction or even a disappearance in the pain altogether.
