Hypnotherapy for Migraine & Headaches Relief
A migraine is an extreme headache that can last up to 72 hours. Migraines often present as an intense hammering pain located at the front or side of the head.
It is a common health condition and affects roughly 20% of adults in the UK at some time in their life, but the severity and frequency of attacks differs between individuals.
Alongside the head pain, symptoms of migraines can include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Sensitivity to light
- Stiffness in the shoulders and neck
These symptoms are not always present during a migraine attack, but when they do occur they can last up to three days. Instances of migraines can vary from a few times per week to a few times per year, but regardless of frequency, migraines make a peaceful quality of life difficult. The adverse effects can be distressing and significant, and are worth addressing in order to live a happy and healthy life.
Even though there is currently no specific cure for migraines, headache medication can be taken as a precaution upon onset of symptoms. Most people who experience fierce migraines can manage to alleviate some of the pain with painkillers, though sometimes over-the-counter painkillers are not strong enough to handle the symptoms caused by a severe migraine attack. Some people may remain bedridden for days, unable to work, travel, bathe or even eat, requiring that they be confined to dark rooms and silence or isolation until the symptoms pass.
Hypnosis can help you to identify the triggers associated with your experience of migraines, which you may not have been consciously aware of previously, such as work stress or emotional worries. A session with an Advanced Hypnosis London hypnotherapist can help you to begin targeting the subconscious associations you have developed between certain situations and migraine headaches, allowing you to more easily relax and handle the symptoms of migraines before they take hold. The tension and emotional distress felt upon onset of a migraine attack can exasperate the problem, making the headache and other symptoms worse as the individual’s mind become preoccupied with the developing pain. Hypnotherapy enables you to take back control of your emotional and physical response to migraines, allowing you to relax and overcome the problem naturally and effectively.
