How Pain Affects You
People who are afflicted by long-term pain know just how demoralising and demotivating it can be.
Generally, long-term pain is focused on the spine and lower back and emanates from the joints, and these are extremely difficult to diagnose. If neglected, the pain may become so severe that people have great difficulty with normal everyday activities at home and may stop going outside. This will likely then lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation, affecting marriages and preventing you from holding a job or enjoying life the way we should.

Specialising in Minimising Chronic Pain
Katina Chapman, an expert hypnotherapist, who works at Katina Chapman Hypnotherapy said, “A lot of my clients suffer from chronic pain. For the vast majority of them, the pain usually comes from somewhere along their spinal column; from their neck, mid-back or lower back. The pain may have started for any number of reasons. For some it’s as a result of an accident, others it’s repetitive motions that impacts their bones and joints and others may feel pain through the wear and tear of getting older.
Pain is a signal between the part of the body where the source of the pain originates and our brain. There is a difference between an acute situation of pain that’s happening right now and a chronic condition where the danger is gone, but those messages carry on going through the spinal cord into the brain.
Once the source of the pain has been investigated and medical advice has been taken, hypnosis is a very effective solution for lowering the sensation of pain.
Pain is made by worse by stress. Some pain such as muscle stress, muscle tension, muscle cramps can be caused by stress as well as made worse by your stress.

Regular practice helps with reducing stress and tension, reducing and controlling pain and regaining your enjoyment of life.
