Hypnosis and Mind Control

 

It is known that anxiety will increase nerve pain, and thus it is not surprising that hypnosis or mind control can be used effectively in some cases.  I personally have found it very effective for immediate control of my nerve pain and the secondary anxiety that it generates when severe.  Some practioners relate that if used daily for a 20 or 30 minute period, some patients get relief from the nerve pain that lasts longer than the immediate session.  

I have not found that to be the case, but my job activities are not conducive to allowing me to escape for a full 30 minutes of quite time needed to accomplish this task.

When the pain is severe, I have used relaxation techniques/hypnosis, or what ever you want to call it, to gain some control over my pain and/or reaction to it.  Unfortunately my productivity during this period is zero, limiting it as a complete solution, at least in my case.

Please post your experiences on the message board, and I will incorporate them on this page (anonymously), as time allows.
