My Own Story
I have experienced first hand how hypnosis can change (almost in an instant) the quality of life. Diagnosed with chronic migraines at around the age of 15. I would average between 12 and 16 migraines per month, and on the really bad days cluster migraines would show up anywhere between 2 and 3 times per day. There were times when I would lose feeling in my hands, the right side of my face would go numb, I would lose the ability to form sentences, or even think properly. To say this was at times a crippling condition would be an understatement. I felt like I was dying. I spoke with doctors, had CT scans, allergy test, massage, acupuncture, and nothing would stave off the pain…
Over the years I was able to minimize the amount of migraines by learning my triggers and taking precautions, but there was really nothing I could do about the pain. The frequency of the migraines greatly reduced, but I would still be impaired when they struck, and I always anxious and fearful that they would occur.
It wasn’t until I began my journey into the art of hypnosis that I was finally able to take control of the migraines once and for all. While studying Hypnotic Pain Management at the Atlantic Hypnosis Institute I was able to learn how through hypnosis; to control or even stop the pain I experienced. Plus, I have been able to completely eradicate the tension and fear of migraines, and live my life again!
My story is just one of thousands of examples of how Hypnosis is helping better lives!
