Why is hypnosis an effective treatment for migraines?
Did you know that hypnosis is an effective treatment for migraines?
Migraines are much more than just a headache.
Migraine sufferers will often say they have symptoms such as a severe throbbing headache, nausea, sweating and stomach pains.
And in extreme cases, symptoms may include visual problems, numbness, or even difficulty speaking or loss of consciousness.
A migraine usually lasts from 4 to 72 hours if untreated. How often migraines occur varies from person to person. Migraines might occur rarely or strike several times a month.
The causes of migraine are largely unknown, but 1 in 5 women and 1 in 15 men are known to suffer from migraines. Migraines are thought to be caused by abnormal brain activity that affects nerve signals, chemicals and blood vessels in the brain.
Migraine can be triggered by stress, tiredness and certain foods and drinks. These triggers vary from person to person, but it may help to keep a diary to see if you can identify a consistent trigger.
After a migraine, you might feel exhausted, disoriented and drained for up to a day.
The effects of migraine can be controlled by lifestyle changes, diet, sleep and exercise or by reducing caffeine and alcohol.
There is no known cure.
And most people turn to painkillers for relief.
But there is another way:
By focusing on the connection between the mind and body, and the use of visualisation techniques, hypnosis will help you manage pain, stress and anxiety and promote calm and relaxation.
Hypnosis is entirely natural and side-effect free, it can be used to address many many issues.
And it can have a significant impact on the management of pain.
Hypnosis helps migraine sufferers by inducing a deep sense of tranquillity and well-being and effectively removing many of the triggers which cause migraine.
