There is a difference between curing and healing. When someone gets medication for a condition, the medication may just cure the condition or symptoms and it has been done by someone and something else and the cure could be only on the surface, leaving the true cause intact. Healing, on the other hand, is from within and the person does it all for him/herself. In fact, healing is not only to start feeling good from within but frequently feeling better than before.
Hypnosis for the Relief and Control of Pain
At Caravan Counselling Services, we use Hypnosis as part of techniques designed to enhance concentration, minimize one’s usual distractions, and heighten responsiveness to suggestions to alter one’s thoughts, feelings, behavior, or physiological state.
Hypnosis is not a type of psychotherapy. It also is not a treatment in and of itself; rather, it is a procedure that can be used to facilitate other types of therapies and treatments. People differ in the degree to which they respond to hypnosis. The key to becoming hypnotized is the extent to which a person is hypnotizable, which is a very reliable and stable individual difference trait that indexes one’s openness to hypnotic suggestions.
Hypnosis allows us to immediately alter your moods to reduce stress and anxiety and reduce pain intensity. We’re able to do this by helping your mind think differently (or not at all) about the pain you feel.
