Pain is the body’s signal that there is something wrong, so the most important thing is to have any pain properly investigated by a medical practitioner.  Once and only after this has been done, and where pain is ongoing or chronic, we can help by teaching you self hypnosis for relaxation and pain control. Moreover, in the cases of psychosomatic pain, hypno-psychotherapy may be used to target he source of the pain itself. Finally, in some physical conditions such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) hypnosis is recognised as effective by NICE, alongside standard medical treatment.
