Chronic Pain is a persistent or recurrent pain lasting longer than 3 months. Often starting with an injury, an ongoing cause of pain, and sometimes with no obvious explanation. Common complaints include headaches, back pain, cancer pain, arthritis pain, and neuropathic pain.

Clinical Hypnotherapy can help alleviate Chronic Pain, by dialling down your body's perception of pain. Several research papers and clinical studies report that hypnotherapy can provide an improvement in Chronic Pain. See the article ‘Hypnosis: Mainstream not Alternative’ by June Callan below.

June Callan is a registered Pain Clinical Nurse Specialist and has used Clinical Hypnotherapy in the acute and chronic pain service at Counties Manukau DHB, so you’re in professional hands.

Clients are guided by June through progressive relaxation and there are a number of strategies that can be used with hypnosis to suit your individual needs.

How long will it take and what does it cost?
Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain involves 6 to 8 sessions. The cost is dependent on how many sessions you need and each programme is tailored to the individual.

Conventional approaches to treatment should not be ignored. Lifestyle factors must also be addressed. Always follow your doctor’s advice.

When hypnotised a person is awake and in control, they can’t be made to do anything they do not wish to do.
