Banish your pain with a smile. Destroy it with hypnosis. And free yourself to get a pain-free life.
For Those Who Live in Constant Pain
There are many people who live in constant chronic pain. In Australia alone it is estimated that one in five lives with this condition.
In 2007 (for which statistics are easy to find), 7 billion dollars were spent on health case alone, 11 billion on lost productivity. And the list goes on: only 10% of people with chronic non-cancer pain gain access to effective care and patients face long waiting times. In monetary terms the cost to society is huge.
But the cost to the sufferers is even bigger … because it’s not just about the money, it’s about the quality of life, to be with your family, to have your independence, or just relax and enjoy your preferred activity.
THIS IS A TRAGEDY and I know for a fact it is not necessary.
Because beyond all pills, treatments, therapies, there is one that is still vastly underutilised: Your Mind.
Because hypnosis for pain management is a legitimate, scientifically proven, and well established procedure.
Hypnosis For Pain Management — The Proof It Works
Please don’t just take my word for it. You can easily see for yourself: you can go to Google or any other search engine and search for “hypnosis pain management studies”. I found 555,000 results in 0.52 seconds. More than half a million results, in half a second!
Picking just the first meta-study in this huge list:
“Hypnotherapy for the Management of Chronic Pain” [Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2007 Jul; 55(3): 275–287]
“Thirteen studies, excluding studies of headaches, were identified that compared outcomes from hypnosis for the treatment of chronic pain to either baseline data or a control condition. The findings indicate that hypnosis interventions consistently produce significant decreases in pain associated with a variety of chronic-pain problems.”
And please note: this is the summary and conclusion of 13 other studies. Just one result out of 555,000.
For those who want to pay attention, the proof is out there.
There is overwhelming scientific evidence that hypnosis for pain management is a valid treatment that works for the majority of people. And it can work for you.
Hypnosis Becoming Mainstream
So if hypnosis is really so good, why is it not more widely used ? A very valid question that requires a good answer, and here it is.
In great part is due to historical reasons. The short answer: Status quo prevails, and technology alone is not enough for social change. And then a pill is easy to prescribe. While becoming an expert hypnotherapist require lots of training and even more experience. And some few hours to work with a client.
The long answer:
Experiments with hypnosis and pain control date as early as mid 19th century. That’s over 150 years ago.
Dr. John Elliotson (1791–1868), an English surgeon, in 1834 reported numerous painless surgical operations that had been performed using mesmerism. Remember that at the time there were no anaesthetics. He was about to go mainstream when …
In 1846 William Thomas Green Morton first publicly demonstrated the use of inhaled ether as a surgical anaesthetic …
And then, in 1853, Queen Victoria decided to use chloroform for childbirth. This was a huge publicity hit. The social elite in London soon followed the Queen’s lead, adding further credibility to the use of anaesthesia.
The Victorian materialistic society took over. A physical doohickey that took minutes to administer was perceived as “better” than some “strange” hypnosis voodoo, that — at the time — took hours. Chemical anaesthetics won the day.
Hypnosis faded into obscurity and became entertainment for stage shows. It entered the society’s perception as a toy, a gimmick, unworthy of serious research. The movies depictions didn’t help either.
It took more than a century to start to turn around that perception. One of the great pioneers was the exceptionally gifted hypnotherapist: Milton Erickson, M.D., that revolutionised hypnotherapy around the mid 20th century.
Nowadays the medical use of hypnosis is making a great return into the mainstream — as proven by all the research going on — but due to all this past, there is still some way to go. Popular views are not easily turned around.
Hypnosis is coming back into the mainstream as a valid therapy for pain management and many other medical and personal problems.
One of the essential reasons hypnosis is coming back is because there are no side effects. Many doctors nowadays are very worried about the widespread prescription of pain killers that lead to opioid abuse epidemic which leads to addiction and worse.
Hypnosis have no side effects, it’s the most natural way of treatment. What can possibly be more natural than using the strength of your inner mind, your inner healer?
And if you don’t see it everywhere, on TV, on radio or in magazines, it is because there is no big money behind hypnosis. There is no billion dollar company that can afford millions and millions of dollars in advertising. That’s it.
How Hypnosis For Pain Management Works
Pain does not exist “out there”, you cannot put it in a wheelbarrow and there is no way you can take a kilo of pain and throw it in the garbage bin.
And then it gets even stranger: some amputees feel pain in their missing limbs. It’s called phantom limb pain.
All this means one thing:
Pain exists — but only in your mind. It is created by your brain. It is created in your mind. And this is a good thing …
Pain is created in your mind — and this is a good thing. Because what it creates, your mind can destroy!
Inside your mind there is an amazing ability to control your pain.
If you are in pain and have not been able to control it is only because your mind doesn’t know yet how to deal with it. Your mind hasn’t been trained YET.
Your mind can obliterate the pain! With expert guidance, your mind can learn how to gain that control. That expert guidance is provided by your hypnotist. The hypnotist can train your subconscious mind to automatically block or greatly reduce the pain that you are experiencing now.
Will Hypnosis Work For Me ?
Before I’ll give you the true answer, there is one fact that I am ethically compelled to tell you.
Every human, every mind, is different. It is impossible to accurately predict how long it will take or how far you will go. Nothing works 100% all the time. If anybody tells you otherwise, I suggest healthy scepticism.
Having said that however, the scientific research undoubtedly proves that an overwhelming majority of people benefit from hypnosis.
In fact I will tell you that hypnosis can work with everybody. The real secret is to actually find the proper way to talk to your subconscious. To find the key that unlocks the power. Because each mind is different, here’s where an expert hypnotist will really make a difference.
What this means for you is that you have a real and very high chance of getting great results. But you will only know it if you try it. The thing is that — without experiencing it — you will never know how much hypnosis may have helped you.
Hypnosis is as natural as you can possibly get. No chemicals. No side effects. No addiction. Stays with you for life. Available to you anywhere, any time. Cannot be lost, stolen or confiscated. No additional costs. It cannot even become illegal!
And you don’t even have to commit for a long treatment. In fact hypnotherapy rarely last more that few sessions.
There is only one problem with hypnosis: since it’s natural, free and at your disposal all the time, you may stop buying medication, so you don’t pay anything to drug companies. That tends to make them rather unhappy.
And finally, there are two simple facts that, above anything else, will determine the success of your hypnosis therapy:
- Your true and sincere willingness for success (It’s OK to be sceptical, but having a dismissive attitude, or contempt, will not help you).
- Your relation with your hypnotherapist. A mutual relation of trust and respect is required. To a fellow human who genuinely wants to get better, I offer you my trust and respect. After all, that is why I got into hypnosis: I want to help people that sincerely want to get better but need help. As for you, it is up to you to decide. You have to compare the price of treatment versus the benefit of having your problem solved. For a more in-depth discussion you can read my article: “How To Choose A Hypnotist”. Get it here.

“The last resort of pain control strategies — altering the perception of pain — remains the most mysterious. The human mind is the most important and least understood arena of modern pain management. We all suffer from the same diseases and injuries, but we don’t perceive them in the same way.”
Yes, we don’t perceive pain the same way. Trough luck or training, some people have learned how to lower their perception of pain.
You cannot control luck.
