    Congratulations are in order for Dani Dudek and also to the person who taught her the Self-Hypnosis. As a Clinical Hypnotist, I have been asked how Hypnosis works to relieve pain. My answer is that the calm and relaxed state of mind achieved through Hypnosis or Self-Hypnosis actually helps the brain to produce endorphins. In turn the endorphins provide the relief from pain.

    Hello Alfred – Thanks for leaving a comment.

    That is an interesting theory. Is that based on a particular source? If so I’d like to read it. I can also post the citation here on the blog.

    I have also heard of the idea that since pain is actually experienced in the brain, that the “gate theory” of hypnotic anesthesia explains everything.

    Here’s to your success!
