RE-OPENED 2021 Maryland Hypnotherapy Center,
is here to help you with Fibromyalgia symptoms.

Hypnosis for Fibromyalgia

The brain can become oversensitive to pain signals. Neurotransmitters can set off the feeling of pain, and the central nervous system is affected. The brain becomes "oversensitive" to pain, instead of simply reacting to actual tissue pain in other parts of the body. Fibromyalgia can sometimes be linked to one or more of the following:

  • Accidents or major surgeries that result in physical trauma
  • Stressors of major psychological importance, especially those causing PTSD
  • Viral infection that is virulent
  • Genetic mutations can increase your risk of developing the condition

What is Fibromyalgia?

The word is derived from (fibro), fibrous tissues such as ligaments and tendons, and pain from muscles (my) (alga). Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by multiple tender points.

What causes Fibromyalgia?

The exact cause of FM is still unclear as there are no definite answers. However, there are many theories as to why this disorder develops. Fibromyalgia is not just a physical issue but can affect the mental and emotional health of sufferers which results in a negative cycle of pain and fatigue. It affects up to 3% of the population at some point in their lives and more women than men are affected.

Hypnotherapy to alleviate many of the associated symptoms

Using hypnosis to alleviate many of the associated symptoms can allow sufferers to better manage the severity and frequency of flare-ups. A study conducted in the United States showed that hypnotized fibromyalgia sufferers experienced 80% fewer painful episodes than those who did not. According to many, fibromyalgia usually begins after a traumatic or stressful experience. Using hypnosis as a treatment can help clear the mental clutter and aid recovery by addressing the underlying causes of the problem. Hypnosis can lessen the anxiety and stress associated with fibromyalgia by addressing the co-existing symptoms. Effectively managing pain and taking control of the condition become easier with hypnosis. By itself, this can make a marked improvement in their well-being. Long-term prognosis can be influenced significantly by adopting a positive attitude.

Hypnotherapy to enhance the quality of sleep

Sleep deprivation is a common symptom of fibromyalgia. Having poor sleep can leave a person feeling constantly exhausted. The use of hypnosis can enhance the quality of sleep, which in turn can improve fibromyalgia symptoms as the body requires rest to heal. A person can also benefit from hypnosis if the Autonomic Nervous System is influenced, allowing them to take control of their condition and help themselves.  

We will work together to help your mind react positively, and automatically, in specific situations.
