Arthritis Pain Relief
Melissa Stefanski, PhD
If you suffer from arthritis, you might be wondering how hypnosis can be used for pain relief. Arthritis pain relief is much the same as any other using hypnosis but focused on diminishing the long-term pain arthritis causes. Hypnosis can help you achieve relief from arthritis pain by teaching you how to use your mind to lower the amount of pain you perceive. How does hypnosis reduce pain? When hypnosis is used for pain relief, the pain signals are still generated at the nerve endings, but they are not "acted upon" by the brain. The brain simply ignores the pain signals. This hypnosis session will help you train your mind so that you are able to switch on your pain relief skills at will.
