How Hypnotherapy Can Help Your Pelvic Pain

PT is at its most effective for treating pelvic pain syndromes when supplemented with other strategies. This blog post is dedicated to one such strategy: hypnotherapy.

For the first order of business, I’d like to give you an explanation of what hypnosis is. Then, I’ll briefly take on the stigma surrounding hypnotherapy. After that, we’ll take a look at how you can tell if you’re someone who is “hypnotizable.” Then, we’ll get to the most important part of the post: how hypnotherapy can help with pelvic pain/dysfunction. Lastly, I’ll let you in on how we’ve begun to use tenets of hypnotherapy at PHRC.

  • I have suffered from Pelvic Floor pain, IC symptoms and IBS since my hysterectomy 3 yrs ago. Hypnotherapy and relaxation are the only things guaranteed to ease my pain for a little while. I take lots of meds to help with the pain, but neuropathic pain does not respond that well to narcotics.

    I recorded a hypnotherapy session with my therapist and I listen to it daily. It really helps. It is not a cure-all, but it does provide a temporary respite from the pain.

    I did NOT go into any trance. Just felt very,very relaxed and the visuals helped distract me from the pain which is due partially to spasms.

    I encourage every one to try it. It does help.

  • I was very interested in this and can see how can help.

    The desert/lemon slice scenario works a second and third time, so the brain can definitely be tricked. Anything that helps hard to treat nerve pain has got to be good.
