Medical Hypnosis Coaching with Melissa Roth and Roger Moore
Chronic pain affects 11% of general population and 22% of those over 65 years. Chronic pain has a major impact on the lives of millions affecting not only their physical well-being and psychological health but also careers, relationships and quality of life. The long-term effects include psychological changes, notably depression, anger and anxiety. Studies have revealed that chronic pain can produce unwanted changes in the brain including damage to brain tissue that leads to further experience of pain. While progress in medical science has led to more effective medications in controlling some types of chronic pain, these medications are not without their drawbacks, especially side-effects and dependency or addiction risk. There is also a substantial group of chronic pain sufferers for whom conventional medications provide only very limited relief.
Hypnosis has been found, in many studies, to provide substantial pain relief for both acute and chronic pain. Whether used alone or in combination with other methods for controlling pain, hypnosis is increasingly finding a role in pain management clinics as a valuable method for chronic pain patients. Since the earliest days of hypnosis in continental Europe, the anesthetic potential of hypnosis was observed and applied in surgical and other medical settings for pain control. This application of hypnosis has had a revival and received increasing attention in medicine over the last 20 years.
John Butler is one of the people closely associated with the practice and teaching of hypnoanaesthesia for over 20 years. He has used hypnotic techniques very successfully with many chronic pain patients. He has also used hypnosis as an anesthetic agent in many surgeries and demonstrated its potential as a replacement for general anesthesia, if medically warranted. Some of this work has been filmed and broadcast on national television in the UK and other countries.
In this webinar Dr. John Butler discusses:
- Developing your skills in hypnanaesthesia for yourself and others
- Key concepts and principles that need to be understood and applied for success
- The range of methods available and adapting your approach to the client’s condition and needs
- Dealing with psychological factors that create pain (psychogenic pain), exacerbate pain or sabotage pain management methods
