In an article about Phantom Limb Pain in the publication Psychiatric Times, a condition in which an individual will experience pain in a limb that has been amputated, Steven A. King, MD, MS, states that “Therapies such as biofeedback and hypnosis may directly affect the physiologic processes involved in the pain.”
It is my experience that hypnosis can do more than just affect the psychological factors, but can also be used to manage pain, or eliminate it altogether.
I recommend Ron Eslinger’s courses. He teaches live courses on the use of hypnosis for pain management, and also has a hypnosis for pain management distance learning course.
