Millions of people suffer from chronic pain every single day. For many, the solution is powerful narcotics. On a short term basis, pain medication can be a wonderful tool. As a long term solution it can sometimes become more debilitating than the pain itself.

Did you know that deaths from an overdose of prescription pain medication now outnumber overdoses from alcohol, cocaine and heroin combined?

Even more alarming, deaths from an overdose of pain medication now outnumber deaths from car accidents! These are not good statistics. But what if there was another solution, something natural, organic and right inside our own minds?

In this Certification Seminar, Instructor John Melton will demonstrate how Hypnosis and the subconscious mind might be a better solution for managing chronic pain.

Topics Will Include:

  • Acute vs. chronic pain
  • How to evaluate the client’s specific condition
  • Specific questions to do the evaluation
  • Belief change and its importance with pain clients
  • What is Tension Myoneural Syndrome (TMS) and why it is important
  • Cognitive and subconscious strategies with pain
  • Important things to remember when working with pain clients
  • An outline for success with the pain client
  • Scripts for some of the subconscious strategies

Included in this Certification Course:

  • 4 hours of live Zoom instruction with your Instructor John Melton
  • 11 hours of streaming video of actual therapy sessions with two chronic pain clients
  • 68-minute documentary of two pain clients through their six week experience with John Melton
  • 22-page Hypnosis and Pain Management workbook (PDF)
  • Pain and Hypnosis Research Articles – 30 pages, 26 studies (PDF)
  • Total 17 Elective Hours/CEU Certificate

I'm so grateful for the opportunity to participate in this course. With the overuse of prescription painkillers, our society needs a working alternative for pain control.

It was an excellent training and based on evidence. It is very important to understand that pain is physical, but the connection with perception, emotions, and beliefs can make its management more functional. Each individual has the inner resources to find the cause, if motivated, to heal. We can provide through hypnosis this resources and let the process take over. Highly recommended; good case studies; well researched.

The pain management course is excellent. Watching the sessions with Jeff and Carol really emphasized the different ways emotions can influence what we feel physically. It was amazing to see how Jeff's overall thinking became more flexible and open as his sessions went on. He had such a huge change in how he saw the habits and routines that were causing him so much misery, and he didn't seem to have any idea that was related to his sessions - although he loved the sessions and realized they were decreasing his pain. (I have noticed more mental flexibility in my own life since starting hypnotherapy sessions also, and I really don't know if I'd have made the connection if I weren't also a student of hypnotherapy - at least not to the changes that aren't directly related to what I've discussed in sessions). Jeff did relate the pain improvement to his sessions though. Carol experienced something similar overall, but it seemed like she made the connection (albeit not right away) more clearly. Perhaps that has to do with her suggestibility versus Jeff's. Or maybe it was just that Jeff's life situation issues were less obvious to him.

Learning about hypnosis for pain management was fascinating yet challenging. I was constantly having to pause the videos to think over what John was talking about or what was happening during the hypnosis session.
