Hypnotherapy for Pain Management
Hypnotherapy for pain management can help you to harness your body’s natural pain killers so that you can cope better, regain control of your life, and even accelerate the healing process.
Over a few short weeks, we’ll work together using a positive, solution-focused approach that helps you feel more relaxed, creating a calm state of being that can be incredibly beneficial in slowing down pain signals to the brain, speeding up your own natural healing process, and alleviating much of the stress that can increase your pain.

How Does Hypnotherapy for Pain Management Work?
If you’re reading this page, then you don’t need me to tell you how debilitating long-term pain can be.
It’s not just the physical sensations of the pain itself that are a problem, it’s the way that it saps you of your energy, motivation, and positive thoughts, leaving you fed up, miserable, and even depressed.
It can even have an impact on your day-to-day life, meaning you can no longer enjoy the things you used to do, meaning going to work seems impossible, and meaning that even socialising with friends becomes too much to handle.
The good news is that it doesn’t always have to be this way.
Your body is capable of producing endorphins and pentapeptides called enkephalins. These are your own natural painkillers that attach to your brain’s opioid receptors and block out the perception of pain, with the enkephalins even working to increase relief from the pain you’ve already experienced.
It’s possible to naturally increase the production of endorphins and enkephalins yourself and, as you can imagine, the more you produce, the better you’ll start to feel.
This is how hypnosis for chronic pain helps. We create a state of deep relaxation which helps get those natural painkillers flowing and so that you can alleviate your symptoms and start to enjoy life again.
Since day-to-day stress and traumatic events can increase the intensity of your pain, we’ll also use solution-focused therapy techniques to help you minimize your stress and respond to things in a calm manner.
Finally, I’ll give you a free audio recording to take away and we can even work on developing exercises that can help you manage your pain long after our sessions are over.
What Can Pain Management Hypnosis Help With?
Some of the issues I can help with include:
- Chronic pain
- Recovering from surgery
- Other miscellaneous pain issues.
If you’re a runner or sports person recovering from an injury, then the same hypnosis for chronic pain treatment can be used to alleviate the pain you’re feeling and aid your recovery.
Hypnosis for Chronic Pain: A Success Story
Tammy, a woman in her early 40s came to see me for help with stress and anxiety.
Tammy was a cancer survivor who had received surgery. During the surgery, a mistake had been made which meant that Tammy now suffered with long-term pain in her shoulder, up along her neck, and even into her ear.
The pain had a profoundly negative impact on her mood and wellbeing and left her unable to do certain activities. This increased her stress which, in turn, increased the intensity and longevity of her pain.
We focused on managing and alleviating stress, going through many of the same exercises that I do with all my clients and using hypnosis to reinforce all the good work we’d done together.
The following day, Tammy sent me a message to let me know that all of the pain in her shoulder had lifted and that as well as feeling mentally and emotionally better than she had done before our session, she was also feeling much better physically too.
As the days passed between our sessions, the nagging pain would slowly start to reappear, but it would be gone again soon after our next session.
Over time, Tammy learned to use the self-hypnosis recording that I give to all my clients and combine it with some of the things she’d learned in our sessions in order to manage her own pain and increase the production of her body’s natural pain killers so that she could help and heal herself without my involvement.
From that day to this, I’m immensely proud of the work we did together, and I’m passionate about using this same process to help others like you to cope better and feel better.
“Hi Chris! I wanted to tell you what a difference hypnotherapy has been making in my life. Not only am I more relaxed, but I’m walking taller, feeling more confident. The best part is that the pain in my neck and shoulders is at a minimum and I’m feeling better and better with each session. Thank you!”
