Hypnotherapy for migraines
Do you suffer from Migraines? Does having an attack take over your life? Would you like to take back that control and learn to turn the pain down?
Treating and preventing chronic migraine headaches with hypnosis and hypnotherapy originally came about as a cost-effective alternative to prescription drugs. Of course in reality the benefit are much more than financial.
Learning to control and turn down the pain is of benefit in the treatment of headaches whether the headache is migraine, episodic, or chronic.
As you are aware, a migraine is a debilitating form of a headache. If you are reading this then it is quite likely that you are someone who suffers already, and are looking for help after trying many different drugs, and perhaps natural foods and remedies. You already know that various triggers can produce the onset of your migraine.
However, reducing the likelihood of a migraine occurring and getting rid of one once it occurs, can be challenging. Studies have been conducted showing that hypnotherapy can be beneficial to the migraine sufferer.
In many studies, hypnosis has been shown to be more beneficial than medications.
Common triggers of migraines include hormonal changes, stress, food, changes in sleep patterns, medications, and changes in the surrounding environment. Symptoms of migraines vary from person to person, but many people report moderate to severe pain that pulsates, worsens with physical activity and interferes with day-to-day activity, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and/or sound, and sometimes experiencing auras. A migraine can last for 4 to 72 hours, but frequency varies greatly.
