Pain in the body is a “wake up call”, delivered in a language that the body speaks well: sensation. Pain may be a result of physical or psychological issues.
Physically, when people are suffering from a stressful situation, their blood vessels and capillaries can become constricted. When the stress is removed, the veins and capillaries open and the return to full blood flow can cause pounding headaches or migraine, or indeed pain in any other part of the body. Clinical hypnotherapy is an excellent reliever of stress, one of the main causes of headaches and migraines.
Migraines can also be food related, and clinical hypnotherapy can help a sufferer steer clear of the foods which bring on an attack.
Hypnoanalysis can also be used to ask the body to explain symptoms in a language the mind can understand more easily: words. When asking the subconscious mind for the cause of the migraines, while in hypnosis, the sufferer might suddenly be presented with reasons such as ‘I hate my job’, or ‘I am sick and tired of working so hard for no reward’, or ‘I desperately need a break’. The migraine headaches might be the body’s way of trying to get you to stop and reconsider.
The migraine reaction might also be deeply embedded in something which happened in a sufferer’s past. An underlying psychological cause might be uncovered, while in hypnosis, and just the understanding of it could lead to symptom relief.
Clinical hypnotherapy is a gentle yet powerful means of gaining access to deep subconscious motivation, and access to the body’s wisdom, in a clearly understandable language.
