Has Anyone Else Used Self Hypnosis For Things Like Pain Management?

Has Anyone Else Used Self Hypnosis For Things Like Pain Management?

I've been using self hypnosis for a variety of things for years. It's easy to learn. But like anything else a person should consult their doctor first. After all, pain is there for a reason and the reason needs to be addressed, not just covered up. But I can see how under certain circumstances it could be very useful. I've got a couple of dozen books on the subject and would be glad to suggest authors and titles if anyone is interested. Have a great day! šŸ‘šŸ˜Š

ROFL! Well, that's one I hadn't thought of. šŸ˜Š But just in case ...

Authors: Melvin Powers. He keeps the subject matter simple and to the point.

Titles: "A Practical Guide to Sell Hypnosis", "Self Hypnosis, Creating Your Own Destiny".

Hint: eBay has a ton of books on self hypnosis pretty cheap. The selection is good too. I wouldn't pay more than six or seven dollars for one and two good ones would be plenty. The subject matter isn't that complex.

Hint number Two: Authors and books tend to fall into two categories. One is simple and direct, like Melvin Powers, the other complicates the subject unnecessarily.

Self Hypnosis: The hypnotic state is pretty much the same thing as the state we experience when half awake and still half asleep. Folks are very suggestible then and the subconscious is easily reprogrammed. Positive affirmations, given while in this state and thought out beforehand, have a better likelihood of taking hold. The only real trick is to learn how to enter into that mental state described above at will. That's where the books are really helpful. Relaxation techniques and visualization are also great tools to use in self hypnosis.

Bass Boats: Keep me posted. I wanna know how it turns out. šŸ˜‚

Interesting...I'm so Blessed that my pain pretty much ended with my first chemo treatment. I still have tingling in my left hand fingers the most, side-effects from chemo, however it's really not that bad.
I'm sure others might be interested. Thank you for offering. Vonnie
