Chronic Pain

Have you noticed that when you are depressed, stressed, worried, angry, that you are more aware of pain?  The neurotransmitter serotonin is sometimes known as the brain’s happy chemical, and when we have a regular supply of it we are brave, coping, happy souls.  We deal better with the stresses of daily life, we feel braver, and we cope better with physical pain.  In Hypnotherapy sessions to manage chronic pain we work towards increasing the amount of serotonin you produce, and as you become happier and calmer you find that you can change your response to the pain and become better able to deal with it.
