In today’s society we are experiencing more pain than in previous years.
In Australia, 67% or 11.1 million people aged 15 years and over reported experiencing bodily pain in the previous four weeks. Around one in ten (9%) Australians experienced severe or very severe levels of pain.
The ache in the lower back, the digestive upset, the headache to name just a few.
You may be aware that when you feel pain that its simply a signal being sent to the brain to alert you that you need to give attention to that part of your body. Its true that your nervous system sends impulses to your brain when your body is injured and this this process is called nociception.
Pain that persists when there is no tissue damage present is known as chronic pain. Examples of Chronic pain are:
We have learnt that in some cases that when injuries have healed there is a part of the brain that didnt get the memo and pain persists. An example of this is phantom limb pain, where the limb has been removed but the pain signals are still being received or generated by the brain.
“I’ve recently completed a Stress Reduction Program with Scott. I’ve learnt some really effective daily practices and benefited from hypnotherapy sessions aimed at helping me reach a super relaxed state; boosting my self-worth; gaining an understanding of past experiences and how they can (unknowingly) cause me stress; and completely removing inexplicable pain. Scott took me on a journey which has meant I’m pain-free, empowered to be in control of what will serve-me (enabling me to make better decisions – for me), and with an appreciate that it’s just as important to “un-do” every day as much as it is to “do”. I was particularly impressed with pain-removal hypno session where Scott completely removed pain I had experienced down my side that wasn’t related to a health issue. He taught my mind to deploy more healthy techniques to respond to what life throws at you. Thank you Scott for taking me on this journey and helping me become a happier, healthier and better version of myself. You are really gifted at what you do. Highly recommend!”

We have more control over nociceptive input that we could have ever have imagined, and with Hypnosis we can allow you to turn down the amount of pain you feel and in some cases release it completely. We all have an internal medicine cabinet of sorts and can initiate opioid release to reduce pain. We can also encourage changes in the brain to assist it ‘getting the memo” and allow the brain and body to let go of chronic pain.
