Analytical Hypnotherapy for Migraines and Headaches

“Emotions, though interpreted and named by the mind, are integrally an experience of the body” Babette Rothschild

Migraine and headaches are common and can vary greatly in severity from person to person. Migraine reduces quality of life, and many sufferers live in fear that at any time an attack could disrupt their ability to work, care for their families or meet social commitments. The headache is severe, with pain described as one-sided, throbbing, pounding or pulsating. There is often nausea and vomiting and an aversion to strong sensory stimuli such as bright light, strong smell and loud sounds. The pain can often be aggravated by movement or physical activity.

Hypnotherapy can help to identify the root cause of the migraine and to reduce the occurrence of powerful triggers such as stress and lack of sleep. Hypnotherapy is also effective at reducing the experience of pain, which in turn restores a feeling of autonomy. People begin to feel more in control of their mind and body, rather than the migraine pain controlling them.
