Pain is the body's natural warning system. Its aim is to protect, but in some people, pain can outlive its usefulness and become redundant or unnecessary. It becomes like a habit.
In others, pain is caused by psychological factors such as stress or anxiety. The pain is just as real and just as distressing, but it is not necessary to warn or protect. It is simply a pain! Hypnotherapy has a variety of techniques to control and alleviate pain, whatever its origin.
