Children who are experiencing pain not only need our compassion but real tools that can help them gain control over their response to pain. Hypnotherapy can help reduce pain stemming from injury, chronic pain from disease or past injury, or pain stemming from needed medical procedures.
Study after study has shown that Hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis can be powerful tools in managing pain in children as well as the anxiety associated with painful procedures.
A study presented by the American Psychological Association found that 75% of clinical and experimental participants with different types of pain obtained substantial pain relief from hypnotic techniques.How does it work? Hypnotherapy is used to induce an altered state of consciousness that is similar to daydreaming or fantasizing which comes very easy to children.
This allows the child to use their own powerful imagination to distract them away from the pain they are experiencing and actually desensitize the physical reaction to pain in the body.With Hypnosis we can numb an arm with a magical potion, turn the mind into a computer that can deprogram chronic migraines, become a superhero who wears a protective shield, or travel to enchanted kingdoms where a child can be surrounded by his or her favorite things.
