If you get any sort of pain, that means your body is sending a signal to your brain - you need to pay attention to the pain. Most of the times, the pain is minor and you get over it very quickly. You normally know the reason for the pain. It may be a cut or a wound or a headache, etc. 

At other times, you may not be aware why you have the pain - and it doesn't go away. 

What should you do? 

Seek immediate medical advice from your doctor. Your medical adviser can give you appropriate medication - and if necessary, refer you to your local hospital for a check up or treatment.

Once you have been through the above process, often times it is possible to control pain or to manage pain using hypnosis and hypnotherapy

A medical referral is normally necessary (and advisable) to ensure that all the necessary checks have been done. 

For example, if you have a fall and you start hypnotherapy, you can normally control the pain. However, the Hypnotherapist can't tell you if you have a fracture. He or she can't "set" your bones or bandage or plaster your injury. 

In other words, it is essential to seek medical advice first to carry out any necessary medical procedures. Once your doctor or hospital gives you the go ahead for alternative and complementary pain control methods, you can then start benefiting from hypnosis.

Is pain all in the mind? "Is there an alternative to drugs? Two London doctors, Chris and Alexander ("Xand") van Tulleken,  identical twins, set out to investigate if we can learn anything about pain relief from other cultures (trance, self-hypnosis, etc.). Both twins, 29, studied medicine at Oxford University and trained at the city's Radcliffe Camera Hospital.
