Hypnosis and EFT for managing Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia and MS
When the drugs no longer seem to work for pain management of your chronic pain syndrome, Fibromyalgia and MS, Hypnotherapy and EFT may help.
I have been treating sufferers of chronic pain and Fibromyalgia for a number of years with considerable success using the intervention of EFT. Invariably,all causes of Chronic pain and Fibromyalgia and are rooted in Post traumatic stress disorder or Physical injury. It is widely debated that the onset of MS may also be caused by stress.But like chronic pain and fibromyalgia the exact cause is still unknown.
Multiple sclerosis affects around 85,000 people in the UK. The course of multiple sclerosis (MS) varies for each person and making the diagnosis of MS is not always straightforward. Diagnosis is based on symptoms of MS, medical history, and diagnostic tests such as neurological examinations and MRI scans. There is no way to predict how each person's condition will progress. It often takes years before a doctor can be certain of an MS diagnosis and have some idea on how the disease will progress. If you have been given a diagnosis of MS you will of course already know this. What you may not know is that Hypnosis and EFT can be very helpful in managing your condition and bring about an improved quality of life for you through the use of deep relaxation and visualisation techniques.
Each of my programmes for all of my clients are uniquely custom tailored to their own individual personal circumstances and are optionally available to be recorded onto CD by me personally. I do not personally believe that off the shelf hypnosis treatments from a script book are as effective in helping people with their issues as successfully as custom tailored scripts made for the individual. I offer waking or sleeping endings and with or without music. My CDs last around fifty minutes or more. I do not farm this out to a large company to be read out by someone who has no understanding of hypnosis and the meaning of effective hypnotic delivery, rapport and pace. I do it all myself which means I have greater control over the end product. It is, it has to be admitted, very time consuming, but when a client finds relief and gets the results they need it is very satisfying.
My partner has a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis and regularly uses my programmes to help.
The use of Hypnosis for pain management has been known about and used by many hypnotherapist's across the world for several decades.However only in the last fifteen to twenty years has its effectiveness been known about to a wider audience of people who suffer with chronic pain.
If you would like to read some independent information from an MS sufferer who relates her personal experience of using hypnosis with a professional hypnotherapist based in Scotland, you may find this link to be very interesting reading as it is taken from the LDN Research trusts page.
I think it is always helpful to read other peoples independent experiences of their own personal journeys of pain management using other qualified professional hypnotherapist's rather than appear to be giving a biased point of view weighed up in the light of relating my own experiences using hypnosis and EFT with my own clients. There are testimonies from clients who have benefited from my hypnosis and EFT programmes and you can find those on my testimonial page.
Throughout the NHS there would appear to be some GP’s who are open to the ideas of Natural interventions as a meaningful alternative to a medication based system to help manage the symptoms of Chronic pain but there is still a long way to go, particularly down here in Cornwall, where the main primary care trust has a closed door policy towards hypnotherapy being made available on the NHS even though it has been very successfully trialled in Kent .
Although these interventions have real natural value and work a great deal of the time, just like the medication you may be taking, Hypnosis doesn't always work and there have been times when I have seen for myself that even Morphine is not effective enough to help manage the pain. However, Hypnosis and EFT are natural processes with no chemical side effects and you may like to consider the benefits of using them.
I have found EFT or emotional Freedom Therapy to be particularly good at dealing with and managing emotional problems and chronic pain.
What is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)?
- EFT is an energy based system which works with the mind body system to often eliminate all kinds of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual discomfort.
- EFT can be self-administered and uses a gentle figure tapping technique tapping on specific meridian points on the upper half of the body to release energy and emotional blockages in the body’s energy system.
- EFTcould be thought of as an indirect relative to acupuncture and acupressure.
- As in the ancient healing art of Acupuncture, EFT works on the same principal understanding that through the body run energy meridians (or pathways). Acupuncture and acupressure work to release the blockages in the energy pathways by working with various points along the meridians.
- EFT also works with these pathways through tapping on these meridians to release blockages.
What can EFT be used for?
It is particularly good for:-
- Emotional issues such as low self-esteem and confidence building
- Pain management,
- Fears and Phobias,
- Traumatic memories.
- Its applications are almost unlimited
How does it work?
It is based on a discovery by Dr Roger Callaghan that emotional discomfort is caused by a misalignment and disruption in the mind body energy system. EFT is frequently championed as a new radical breakthrough in healing.
Whilst tapping on the body’s meridian points or energy pathways in the upper half of the body, whilst the patient is focusing upon their specific problem or issue, the mind /body energy system can often be very quickly corrected and the energy flow rebalanced and re-aligned, leaving the patient feeling better very quickly.
With EFT, Specific issues can be targeted and often resolved in a very short time period. Often Forever!
Why use it?
ü It is very effective to use when a client may be unsuitable for hypnotherapy treatment because of health risks. e.g. Epileptic, Heart Condition, Pregnancy etc.
ü It is a great complimentary support tool when combined with hypnotherapy, used together the treatment process becomes much more powerful , for example in the treatment of chronic pain where the use of EFT can rapidly help clear the pathway for suggestion therapy to take root. This is because sometimes clients may experience resistance in being able to relax and let go because their pain or anxiety levels are just too high for them to relax enough and EFT helps release the tension so effectively enabling the client to be in a state to accept the deep relaxation of the hypnosis experience essential for the suggestion therapy to take root.
- It is very easy to teach and easy to learn.
- Easy to apply and the results can be very quick.
What do some of my customers say?
I have clients who use the EFT Technique that I taught them and they tell me it has helped them deal with their chronic pain symptoms very effectively, giving them much needed respite. I also have clients who have used EFT to overcome their fears and phobias which they had been dealing with for many years in some cases.
If you suffer from the conditions of Chronic pain, Fibromyalgia and MS and have relied on drugs for pain relief and have never considered Hypnosis to help manage your pain please feel free to give me a call for a no obligation phone consultation.
I look forward to being able to help you.
