Reduce Chronic Pain with Clinical Hypnotherapy and Mind-Coaching
Research has shown that the way we think about pain and our attitude to it is directly linked to how we experience and feel pain.

The Power of a Positive Mind and the Pain-Gate Theory
Positive Mind-Coaching and Hypnotherapy can have a powerful affect in helping chronic pain because of the Pain-Gate theory. Nerves from all over the body run up the spinal chord and link to the nervous system. Within the spinal chord we have a “gate” which opens and closes to allow the pain signals from all over the body to travel up to the brain. When the “gate” is closed these pain signal cannot get through so we experience no pain and conversely, when the “gate” is open we experience pain.
Mind-Coaching and Hypnotherapy can help “close” the Gate.
What opens the “Gate”
Focusing on your pain
Lack of Activity / Exercise
What closes the “Gate”
Feeling and Thinking happy
Taking an interest in life and doing things you enjoy
