Hypnosis Helps for the relief of
Migraines and Headaches
Many migraine attacks are caused by stress triggers. Learning to avoid those triggers or your response to them can help in the treatment of migraines and tension headaches.
In any form of pain treatment, a hypnotist will want to take comprehensive notes about the condition and will not use pain control techniques unless your doctor has diagnosed your headache as a migraine and recommended relaxation or stress management as a suitable treatment.
Hypnosis, and other forms of alternative medicine, can help indirectly with any kind of pain that is triggered by stress. This is achieved by teaching deep and rhythmic breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation and visualization or ‘guided imagery’. And Self Hypnosis, when the mind starts to recognize the triggers, then a client is taught to place themselves into self-hypnosis stopping the trigger from taking affect.
