Hypnosis for Pain

Hypnosis is a alternative treatment for pain management used by professionals to treat pain of all kinds from arthritis to dental procedures. Joseph Barber, PhD, a clinical professor of anesthesiology and rehabilitation at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, uses hypnosis for pain caused by arthritis. One patient, a 73-year-old grandmother with severe pain from knee osteoarthritis, couldn’t tolerate anti-inflammatory drugs. With just three hypnosis treatments – an unusually fast response – the pain in her knee decreased and she was able to return to normal daily activity. An analysis of 18 studies of hypnosis and pain with more than 900 people conducted by researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York bears out this patient’s experience, showing substantial pain relief in 75 percent of participants.

So, just what is hypnosis? Hypnotherapists say it’s a way to focus one’s imagination and attention to help alleviate physical and emotional problems. Brain imaging has shown that some hypnotic suggestions reduce activity in brain areas associated with emotional responses to pain, while other suggestions reduce activity in an area of the brain more directly involved with the physical sensation of pain. Using relaxing images, such as a walk along a beach, and asks the patient to focus on those images. Next, imagery and suggestions are used to block out or transform pain, such as, “Lock away the pain in the box in the basement of an abandoned house.” While hypnosis typically helps relieve pain in four to 10 sessions, some people may benefit more quickly. Debs will teach you ways to continue therapy at home.
