PAIN RELIEF WITH HYPNOSIS
Pain relief with hypnosis:
Cruel myth or validated by published research?
Pain is the body saying that something is wrong.
Obviously, the first step is to seek appropriate medical care.
However, what happens if pain becomes chronic and the standard therapies aren’t effective? Then perhaps it’s time to consider alternatives.
There are several ways that hypnosis affects pain.
In 1998 I had surgery on my big toe. The surgery was early in the morning, about 8:00 am.
The initial anesthetic wore off at about 12:30 PM. The first pain tablet didn’t diminish the pain at all. I called for a different medication at about 2:30 PM. It was equally ineffective. At about 6:00 pm I realized that whatever “the shot” was, I needed it.
I got “the shot” and it knocked me out. I went home with a prescription for morphine. The morphine took away the pain. It also made me nauseous; because of the nausea I was off morphine within days.
I wish I had known about pain relief and hypnosis before the surgery.
I remember the first time I intentionally experienced hypnosis. I was skeptical and didn’t expect much. Joe, the hypnotist, lead me into hypnosis. He gave me suggestions that I would only feel touch and pressure in my left hand. Then, he demonstrated that my hand was numb. I wondered, “How did that happen?” I felt like Dorothy, in the Wizard of Oz, when she said, “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”
I’ve personally experienced numbness by hypnotic suggestion and clients have also received pain relief with hypnosis.

Ron Eslinger, RN, CRNA, MA, APN, BCH, CMI, FNCH, teaches a Pain Management with Hypnosis course through Healthy Visions. I’ve taken the course. He begins with four sessions, of course the client may choose additional sessions.
Within four sessions you would know if hypnosis as a pain relief tool is effective for you.
Back to the initial question,”Is pain relief with hypnosis a cruel myth or researched and demonstrated?” You now have the answer.
Each of us has a powerful subconscious mind. The boundaries and capabilities of our subconscious are still uncharted. One of the great joys in life is to explore and discover new things. I wonder what you’ll discover.
