Welcome! Migraines and chronic headaches can be debilitating and often require a small cave and isolation. Dr. Liz reviews research to see if Hypnosis can help migraines and headaches so you can come out of your cave and be among the living!
What we’ll Learn
- Success rate of Hypnosis for migraines
- Research studies supporting Hypnosis
- How long treatment takes (How many sessions?)
- What you can do at home to help with migraines and headaches
Tips for Home for your migraines and headaches:
***If you have chronic migraines and headaches, I highly, highly recommend that you seek the services of a trained hypnotherapist in your area for a structured program for migraine and headache reduction.***
- Imagine the veins and arteries in the back of the neck and head throbbing and swollen and then imagine them becoming smaller and more comfortable.
- See an image of your headache gradually changing.
- Try transforming the pain into sensations that are easier to tolerate.
- Imagine transferring the pain from the head to a less disabling part of the body. And then imagine that pain becoming smaller and smaller, floating out of your body.
