HYPNOTIC PAIN CONTROL: ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE?

Factors helpful in predicting the outcome of hypnotic pain control include:

1. The nature and origin of the pain and whether it is organically or mainly psychologically caused.

2. Whether you believe in hypnosis or not — and if you expect it will bring you pain relief.

3. The presence of ‘secondary gain’ — that is the presence of social or financial rewards for the maintenance of your pain problem.

4. Your motivation to improve.

5. The development of a positive and trusting relationship between you and your therapist.

6. Your willingness to practice self-hypnosis. The ability to produce a deep state of hypnotic trance is not always important and good results occasionally occur in the presence of light hypnotic or slight sleep-like states.
