Chronic pain therapy

    If you are looking for a faster way to winnow away your pain, you are in the right place!

Whether it is emotional, somatic or idiopathic, pain is always real. Although pain can be a predictor of many diseases, the classical model of pain associating a somatic origin to any painful sensation has evolved in recent years.

According to recent updates of the medical model, the feeling of pain is  created by the brain rather than passively perceived. The process of perceiving pain has a similar neurological path, and activates similar brain regions as the perception of the somatic component of emotion. The pain is perceived as a feeling by the emotional brain, and the outcome is jointly negotiated and decided with the cognitive brain.

In the complex process of deciding whether or not to generate a sensation of pain, the brain considers a lot of factors including the health, the wounds and the emotional state of the mind. Still, the feeling of pain is definitely created by the brain. This means that if you are in pain, you are not necessarily physically ill or hurt. And if you are physically ill or hurt, you will not necessarily be in pain. Therefore, the term "idiopathic", which means "uncertain or unknown cause," is often used to describe various unexplained painful conditions.

Although you see yourself as one entity, you are in fact composed of trillions of semi-independent cells. Each cell is an organism by itself that has its own organs, metabolism, needs, feelings and knowledge of its existence. There is a system of communication and coordination between these cells that allows them to function as one body. Thus, when a physiological imbalance occurs, you have two regulatory options: You can either address the imbalance of each affected cell, known as a bottom-up regulatory process, or you can address the imbalance by modulating the cell communication and coordination system, known as a top-down regulatory process.

Whether you perceive your pain as an object of perceptual experience or as an experience by itself, the somatic hypnotherapy can override both bottom-up and top-down processes through enhancing the mind’s capacity to affect your bodily functions and symptoms. So, since the mind clearly understands the difference between the two, you can anaesthetize or heal your pain according to your own needs. You can't go wrong by doing so, as you are triggering your innate, natural healing process and your body knows how to use its own resources and heal itself. It knows what is good for you.

As the brain is the tool your body uses to interpret pain, why couldn’t you just tell your brain to stop interpreting what happens in your body as “pain”? Whether you are dealing with an acute, chronic, somatic, neuropathic, idiopathic or an emotional pain, an emotional component of your pain is always present. The physical and emotional feelings are always intertwined. Therefore, a broken heart or a broken leg is all the same to your brain. Somatic hypnotherapy can help you significantly decrease or completely clear away your pain.

Since pain is always a personal experience, only your perception really matters in the process of healing, because it is this perception that holds you back from well-being. It is precisely this subjective perception of your suffering that you want to winnow away with hypnotherapy. In so doing, you can ease your physical pains or the so-called somatic, psychosomatic and neuropathic pains, as well as your emotional painful feelings. Persistent migraines or headaches, back pain, chronic pains, neuropathic pains, post-surgery or cancer therapy-related pains, and all kinds of atypical pains are among the kinds of pain that respond very well to somatic hypnotherapy.*

Somatic hypnotherapy is a safe and effective therapy for a large variety of pains and painful feelings. Following my therapies, your pain and painful feelings that you identify and localize at the beginning of your therapy session will gradually cease and usually disappear completely. Most benign pains will greatly improve or disappear after a single session of therapy.* Whatever the nature of your pain, there will be a significant improvement with somatic hypnotherapy.

The exact outcome of your therapy depends mainly on you, as the best results always come from the therapeutic approach that you trust the most. Furthermore, the result expected from a single therapy session is lowered with each failure of the treatments used to try to resolve persistent pain or a persistent health problem.

Often, physical pain is just a sign of unresolved traumas, a warning that there is still work to be done in healing emotional wounds. However, if you have a consistent or long-lasting physical pain, you should consult your physician.

Whatever the nature of your pain, don't allow it to cripple your life.
