Hypnosis can ease the Chronic Pain of Arthritis
When you suffer from arthritis you need to learn all about pain management. This means that it has long been a part of the daily life of arthritis patients. Medication can really help, but often in the long tern it becomes less effective and stress can also rear its head.
Hypnosis for pain management is a very effective way to supplement the help given by your GP or other Doctor.

"A 73-year old patient who suffered from severe pain caused by knee osteoarthritis could not tolerate the use of anti-inflammatory drugs. However, with just three hypnosis treatments, the grandmother experienced a decrease in her knee pain,"
