Hypnosis for Back Pain

A testimonial from Terrie in Dallas.

Experience now tells me that I can’t and shouldn’t just take a single doctor’s word regarding my health problems. I have learned that my body responds mentally, emotionally and even spiritually to my thoughts and environment.

When my chiropractor asked me if I was talking to anyone about my ongoing physical problem (burning lower back pain), I looked at him sideways and in all sincerity replied, “You mean other than my girlfriends?” Yes, he said and referred me to The Flow Center. I’ve done counseling before with some success but had no idea how hypnosis worked. It was time to work on my mental state and I was open to it.

After just our first session I realized I had never cried about my recent life changes because I was too busy making those changes. That physical relief helped me to release some of the stress that has manifested in my lower back.

Valerie has also taught me that my mind sends signals to my back that can trigger my inflammation or pain based on how much stress I encounter in a day. I have worked with Valerie to change my thought patterns, to think of other things when stress pops up and to fully relax and release the cares of this world before sleeping each night. Delving into my subconscious to make changes is helping me deal with my issues consciously. Who knew? These sessions have truly helped my mental and emotional outlook for the better.

When I start to think I’m going insane (from my back pain, worry, self-pity, etc), I recall Albert Einstein’s quote and look to see what is it that I’m doing over and over again expecting different results.

Seeing Valerie was a different and viable option to help me handle my problem. And, I have received a different outcome of clearer thinking and an education about how best to train or I should say, retrain my brain.
