Hypnosis allows you to direct your thoughts and your thoughts create very strong biochemical and physiological responses in your body. That is why hypnosis is one of the best ways of creating pain relief and unlocking the reasons for your chronic pain. If you want to simply reduce the pain (like taking non-prescription pain relievers) then use self-hypnosis to induce local analgesia at the affected area. However, if you need to completely avoid all pain, simply enter the Esdaile State or Sichort State. When using these deep states, suggestion is no longer needed for anasthesia. When surgery is indicated, a person who is able to achieve the Esdaile or Sichort States, will automatically produce general anesthesia without the use of suggestion. Dangerous drugs are not be necessary, because general anesthesia is a gift of these states. Remember, the Staging Process enables you to be able to instantly induce analgesia, local anesthesia, or general anesthesia, thus making it possible for you to undergo minor or major surgery without the use of chemical anesthetics and without the risking the chance of “anesthesia awareness” taking place, this is because you can instantly enter the Esdaile State or Sichort State. These effects and many more can realistically be achieved by you and once staged, these skills are available for you to use for the rest of your life.
Hypnoanesthesia and Pain Control are methods of teaching your mind how to remove any sensations of pain without any need for chemical anesthetics or pain relievers.This is a great solution for many people who may struggle with:
- Chronic Pain and Discomfort
- Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, etc.
- Dentist Appointments
- Minor Surgery
- Injuries, Burns, Wounds, etc.
- Post-Operative Recovery
- Regular Users of Prescription Pain Relievers
- Regular Users of Non-Prescription Pain Relievers, NSAIDS, and Other OTC Medications
There’s a great deal of flexibility in what the mind experiences, including perceptions about the body, that we healthcare professionals have learned through the study of hypnosis. We have learned that you can become so deeply absorbed in your daily life experiences that you can permit their body to be more comfortable, even when there are reasons that perhaps you shouldn’t be. Even when there is an injury or disease that causes discomfort, the ability to use the mind to make your body comfortable is the foundation for what is called hypnotic analgesia or hypnotic anesthesia. It represents the most sophisticated use of hypnosis and it is what hypnosis for pain control is all about. Keep in mind the difference between “analgesia” and “anesthesia”, they are very different. Hypnotic analgesia is using hypnosis to reduce or diminish bodily sensations. Hypnotic anesthesia refers to the total elimination of sensations and pain.
Hypnotic analgesia and hypnotic anesthesia are typically some of the hypnotic phenomena that you may react to with uncertainty and disbelief. When considering a person is in pain from a physical cause like a disease or injury, you may wonder and be skeptical that mind-body medicine can make a difference. Many people even go a step further with a misconception that if you’re in pain, and it is reduced by hypnosis, then it must have all been in your head in the first place. The meaning being that statement is that there wasn’t actually any pain to begin with.
Nothing is further from the truth. In fact, hypnosis has been used as the sole anesthetic in major surgical procedures from the 1800′s to the present. The incision and physical effects are obviously quite real; therefore, the pain is not just in the head, but at the surgical site also. However, there is not pain until it gets to the brain. That is why surgery with hypnosis is a very powerful and dramatic application of the same principles and skills that you can experience through hypnotherapy or self-hypnosis. Hypnosis actually takes the “hurt” out of pain.
As dramatic and remarkable as surgery is with hypnosis as the anesthetic, you should be aware that it involves the every day routine uses of hypnosis. You can probably remember a time when at the end of the day you discovered a bruise or cut that you were totally unaware of at the time it occurred. In such an experience your mind is distracted from noticing the injury, therefore the signal to experience pain never occurred. With hypnosis you can give yourself control over your discomfort rather than letting the pain control you. Control your thoughts and you control your pain.

Using hypnosis as an adjunct to medicine to relieve pain is important for the following reasons:
- The opportunity for greater self-control and greater personal responsibility for their own level of well-being
- Let go of the feeling of helplessness
- Limit the degree of suffering
- Help get back to work and decrease financial burden
- Hold the family together
- Decrease the number of pain related suicides
The ability to experience hypnosis is a natural thing that exists within each of us, which means that we have the ability to reduce the use of medications or even eliminate them all together. Unlike medications, hypnosis has no side effects nor is it addictive. Discomfort is reduced to different degrees according to your desires and the result is obtained safely and naturally.
The challenge of pain control starts by abandoning the belief that chronic pain is a type of acute pain. Chronic pain is pain that has lasted for at least six months and has not purpose. Therefore, the management of chronic pain is different than for acute pain. Acute pain is relieved with traditional medications and when there is no longer a need for the pain it does not return. On the other hand chronic pain may receive relief, but the pain keeps returning and so more and more medication is needed and in many cases there is no relief. Because of the chemical message received a wide dynamic range of neurons may physiologically change, as in the same manner there is adverse physiology from unrelieved pain. This has lead to physicians specializing in “pain management”.
Pain management clinics are popping up across the country because of the inability for most physicians to deal with the number of pain patients flooding their office and their ability to offer only limited treatment composed mostly of addicting medications. The techniques used in pain management clinics are very expensive. Unfortunately, many pain management clinics do not incorporate the mind/body connection. The reasons are that they do not know the techniques and because insurance rarely pays for complementary or alternative medicine. These clinics measure their success rate by patient having a 50% improvement in pain relief. Adding hypnosis to pain management greatly increases the success rate.
- More than 50 million Americans are partially or fully disabled by chronic pain
- 4 in 10 with moderate to severe pain do not have adequate relief
- 26 million have frequent or persistent back pain
- One American in six has painful arthritis
- Such pain contributes to impaired ambulation, sleep disturbance and depression
Pain is physical in that it hurts and creates physiological changes in your body. Some of these changes are related to your body’s stress response which produces adrenalin, cortisol and activates the immune system. Pain also decreases your ability to work or play due to the physical discomfort..
Pain is psychological. It affects how you think of yourself as a complete person. You don’t not feel like an asset to yourself, family or to society as a whole. It is difficult for patients who are accustomed to medications to accept a non-tangible psychological treatment. However, there are over 3,000 different chemicals in the body that are responsive to our thoughts. Among these are endorphins, melatonins, and seratonins. By helping you change your thoughts you can effect the stimulation and production of these chemical hormones that can lessen your pain.
Pain is sociological because it involves not just the person with the pain but also the surrounding environment. The person with pain does not feel like socializing and frequently have less-than-rewarding interactions with other people. They may be uncomfortable in attending children’s school activities, or having marital relations, or building friendships and healthy relationships. You have probably heard the saying: “If mamma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy.” Pain affects the immediate and extended family.
Pain can be spiritual as was shown in a double-blind study using prayer using prayer groups that prayed for people who did not know they were being prayed. There was a significant positive effect for the group being prayed for. The Sylvan Mind Control group reported such studies in the 70s and it has taken over 30 years to reach mainstream thinking. The movie “What the Bleep do we know” discusses quantum physics and the connectedness of everything at the fundamental level of reality.
There are those of you who think physicians see only the pain and not the whole patient. In many cases you are often right, however if physicians are able to look beyond the sensory aspect of pain into the emotional suffering that pain causes their patients then they can see that pain represents many things in the pain sufferer’s life. These may be physical limitations, economic ruin, broken families. Chronic pain can destroy a person’s life. However, the true pain horror is the fear of not getting relief from medications or procedures. Many feel they are helpless and have no control over their life when they have chronic pain. Unfortunately physicians do not know how to handle chronic pain either.
Chronic pain limits function and quality of life in different ways for different people. Some use it as an excuse for not having to hold a job, while others may see it as a punishment. There are numerous ways that people to respond to their pain, regardless one thing is constant and that is that pain changes the quality of their lives. Hypnosis is proven to reduce pain and therefore improve function and quality of life. Hypnosis may not only relieve pain but may also help to maintain the dignity and the well being of the patient without dependence on large quantities of medication.
It appears that the majority of chronic pain patients sleep better once they learn the use of self-hypnosis. This is important in that it takes six hours of sleep for sleep to be restorative sleep. Six hours for your body to restore itself from all of the rigors of the day before. Therefore, there are a many benefits in improving the quality and quantity of sleep for chronic pain patients. The body can restore and heal while decreasing the amount of pain and increasing the overall quality of life.
