Pain is in the brain

Pain is in the brain

Tonight’s the night!
Pain is in the brain. Even knowing that today didn’t help me when I woke up unable to walk this morning – again. If pain is in my brain then why do I feel it in my…er back? Because I hurt my back, it’s just that all the signals and messaging about the injury occur in the brain and then the brain sends the necessary healing response and components to the site of the injury. Why is that significant to hypnosis? It means we can aid healing and recovery through suggestions. The unconscious mind plays an important role in healing and recovery. We can reduce our perception of pain and decrease inflammation through hypnosis. A friend of mine, Nigel Edwards is so good at self-hypnosis that he doesn’t have an anesthetic when he goes to the dentist. He’s now teaching dentists about hypnosis. I’ve not tried that yet and I’ve not tried anesthesia on my back pain yet either, but as it’s Saturday, I think tonight’s the night.
