Has anyone used hypnosis for pain and did it work?  I know nothing about hypnosis and seem to be able to find all sorts of conflicting information on the intranet.

If you were to use it for pain, is hypnosis something that you can limit to just pain and not turn into a session where you have someone ask questions you don't wish?

I can not tell exactly what hypnosis can and can not do and how much control you really have.

My simple meditation uses self hypnosis. There are some self hypnosis programs that are typical on my website. During my "I am, calm" meditation, I ask you to close your eyes and look to the top of your forehead you are putting yourself into a self hypnosis state. The aphorism "I am calm" is highly effective against pain and anxiety.

My daughter uses brain entrainment on her meditation CD's. This is another method that can be used for a number of things including self hypnosis. She is using to help people relax. Her meditations are long like yoga meditations. Mine are short. I prefer people doing their own aphorisms as they are under total control.

During the Montauk project the ___ used a combination of brain entrainment and other techniques to use my mind for other things.

Being calm is always good for the body, but remember pain it your body's way of telling you something is wrong. The pain you feel is due to inflammation. Control the inflammation and you control the pain. Make sure your doc knows your in pain.

I do. I have not gone to a professional however. I enjoy using free YouTube Hypnosis videos online.
They are very relaxing & they have them for all sort of topics.

One person whose tapes/voice I like is: Michael Sealey.

I just use headphones, put on my blackout mask & lay on my bed. I don't know that the effects are long-lasting, but it is enjoyable & relaxing. You might wish to try this & if you think it works, then go to a professional in your local area.

Take Care.

Dear Puzzled,

I am a certified Hypnotherapist.  There is a program for just pain.  In order for it to work, you must trust the hypnotherapist.  You do all the work, she/he just guides you there.  If done right, you can use a color, number, or image to reduce your pain whenever you need to.  Smama.
