Pain and Stress Reduction

Relieve Stress to Relieve Pain

Break the vicious cycle of pain causing stress and stress in turn causing more pain. Managing pain and stress reduction become vital in breaking this cycle.

If you are like most people, when you are stressed out, your pain levels rise. You know that. You feel it. There is an undeniable connection between pain and stress.

Not only that, having pain in itself creates more stress. You may be having trouble sleeping, exercising, and even getting a really good rest and a break from pain. It can be difficult for you to relax when you are feeling pain.

So, if stress and tension create more pain and pain creates more stress, then reduction of stress naturally becomes a tool for effective pain relief.

What can you do?

Stress reduction exercises, meditation, self hypnosis - all these choices can help you to relieve stress. Depending on the type of your pain, massage therapy, or a visit to a chiropractor may also be beneficial.


Self hypnosis and stress reduction

More and more people are turning to self hypnosis as an effective stress relief. Self hypnosis is a tool that can help your body quiet down and relax by tapping into your unconscious mind.

To begin, you can try this Instant Self Hypnosis recording, or you can do it on your own without any guidance.

If you choose to do it on your own, find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Prepare an affirmation that you would like to repeat to yourself (e.g. "my body is healthy and strong"). Sit or lie down in a comfortable position. Begin diaphragmatic breathing. When you feel that you are relaxed, begin to repeat your affirmation silently. Continue for as long as you feel comfortable.

Another great alternative for self hypnosis and stress reduction is the use of hypnosis recordings.
