The psychological side effects of living with chronic pain or illness can be as debilitating long-term as the pain or disease itself. However, our emotions play an important role in health and disease. By creating positive feelings through the use of hypnosis we can produce neurochemicals that strengthen the immune system; while negative, repressed, or distorted emotions can decrease immune response and open the door to a variety of health problems.
This is why utilising hypnotherapy for pain management can create emotional well-being which is an important aspect of healing your body with your mind. A healthy mind is a healthy body. Holism stresses the mind-body connection and maintains that health and disease depend on a dynamic and often subtle interplay among the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of our being, as well as our relationship to the environment in which we live.
