Chronic pain is debilitating regardless what age you are, but when it happens to a child, our hearts shatter and it seems the treatment options can be harder to find. Whether a patient is 12 or 72, there is always an uphill battle to gain a proper diagnosis. Then the next hurdle is finding effective treatment options that provide long-term results. Once that diagnosis is gained, HCT (Hypnosis Combined Therapy) can be an effective treatment option for those diagnosed with neuropathic pain, chronic pain, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome (AMPS), Adhesive Arachnoiditis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), chronic migraines, phantom limb pain, PTSD, etc.
The parents, spouses, loved ones and caretakers that have not been able to provide comfort, only to be pushed away while the patient rides out the searing pain in solitude, they are desperately searching for answers and praying for something to be available that will help to take away the pain – to stop the tears running down the cheeks, to control or stop the unrelenting pain, and provide health and healing. No individual should have to suffer in this type of pain, and no one should have to witness this on a daily basis, either.
This is why I have perfected HCT to help those that may feel they have exhausted all other resources or are looking for a viable solution. HCT (Hypnosis Combined Therapy) is an evidence based, non-invasive, drug-free treatment option with outstanding outcomes and no negative side effects. I utilized a very similar technique that got me into remission from CRPS myself.

I have seen clients from all over the world dramatically decrease their pain, regain functional levels, regain their lives and many gain long-term remission. There may not be a cure for many conditions, but being able to live a functional life or gaining remission can be just as good.
I could try and use a thousand words to describe the image that patients and families are confronted with on a daily basis but these words would fall short of truly depicting the true severity of living with chronic pain and rare diseases. Perhaps by sharing this information we can make an impact and help more people as a whole so that in the future children and adults don’t have to suffer thinking there are no options, so no parent has to bear witness to their children suffering and feel helpless.
