Try hypnosis for cervical spine and back pain relief

What is Hypnosis and Can it Help Me?

Hypnosis has been around for centuries.  It is a type of psychological therapy.  Numerous clinical studies have shown it can have a definite effect in improving cervical spine pain and back pain.  Research shows that hypnosis can help with both acute and chronic pain.  It has been used with success to treat things like migraines, IBS, allergies, pain from arthritis or injury, and quitting smoking.

I have tried many different techniques and therapies, and I can tell you that hypnosis has definitely helped me with reducing my pain levels significantly!  I think it is especially effective if your pain is aggravated by stress and anxiety, as mine is.  The wonderful thing about hypnosis is that there is no risk unlike other more invasive treatments.

It should be noted that hypnosis is a tool to help you deal with the symptoms of your pain, but it is not a cure for the cause of your pain.  It is also not a diagnostic tool, so it is important to get a proper diagnosis.


What Will Happen During a Hypnosis Session?

A hypnosis will put you into a state of “altered awareness”, but that does not mean that you will lose control or your own will!  You are still in control.  What it does is that it puts you into a very deep state of relaxation, or what is known as a trance state.  Don’t be put off by the word “trance”!  It’s not like the magic tricks you see on stage!

If you decide to try hypnosis, you will do a series of treatments, which usually last from 30 minutes to one hour.  The number of treatments can vary widely depending on the severity of your condition.  You will be guided to focus on relaxation and positive thoughts.   You will actually experience physiological changes!  These changes include a slowing down of the pulse and respiration rates, and an increase in your alpha brain wave activity.  It’s important that you remain open minded.

It has been proven that a better mental attitude helps people feel less pain, and that is one theory about how hypnosis works, although the exact reason is not known.


How Can I Get Started?

If you want to try hypnotherapy, you should look for an experienced, licensed practitioner.  It is a good idea to seek a recommendation.  The cost for a session can vary quite a bit, but you can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $100 or more per session.

If you want a low risk way to try hypnosis but you are not near a reputable practitioner, or you are not  able to afford a series of sessions, another great way is to get a home hypnosis program.  This is what I did.  What you really want to do is find a program that is tailored for pain relief.  The one I used was great – inexpensive, and effective.  And best of all you can download the MP3 sessions and start right away!  Click here for more information.


  1. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely
    appreciate it.
