Pain can be a side effect of serious medical problems such as arthritis, an injury, or cancer. However, it also exists independently of other medical conditions. Prescription drugs (e.g. Oxycontin, Vicodin, and Percocet) can be very effective, however, over time they may become addictive and may be contraindicated for individuals who suffer from addictions.
Recent research on the anterior cingulate cortices, one of the areas responsible for perceiving and controlling pain, is revealing that brain activity can reduce pain sensation by up to 64%. It is believed that people can “reshape” the circuits responsible for pain. Neurotherapy can assist with this reshaping process.

Clinical Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain Relief
Pain Management - now you can reduce chronic pain with clinical hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is a highly effective evidence-based method for addressing neuropathy, back pain, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain issues
Decades of scientific research supports the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for pain management. What has it shown?
- It shows that pain is interpreted by the brain and that the way it is interpreted will influence the amount, type and intensity of the pain that is experienced.
- It shows that there is no single "pain center" in the brain and that hypnosis has the capacity to impact all of the various pain interpreting centers.
Scientific studies support the notion that hypnosis is not "mind control" nor "sleep"; rather it involves highly focused brain states. This means that you do not have to "believe" in hypnosis for it to begin reducing pain. Hypnosis is just a matter of fact/natural state that your mind regularly enters and exits.
