More recent studies have demonstrated its effectiveness for pain related to burns, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis and reduction of anxiety associated with surgery. An analysis of 18 studies by researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York revealed moderate to large pain-relieving effects from hypnosis, supporting the effectiveness of hypnotic techniques for pain management.

Benefits of EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. Sometimes it is also known as ‘tapping therapy’ because it involves the client tapping on themselves on acupressure points mainly located on the face, the upper body and the hands. It is a very gentle therapy and has frequently been shown to have amazing results. The therapist teaches the client the acupressure points and the tapping routine.

EFT has been studied extensively, both in the US and in the UK. Most recently in the UK in 2012, a programme using EFT to treat a wide variety of complaints (depression, anxiety, weight loss, low mood and chronic pain) was initiated in an NHS hospital in Staffordshire. Patients referred themselves, or had their GP refer them. For every patient, there was an improvement in how they felt, physically and emotionally. It took an average of five sessions per patient to see improvement, but even more importantly, once things had improved, they remained improved.

Pain Management

Pain Management

Benefits of Reflexology

Whilst it is not yet fully understood how reflexology addresses the management of pain, current opinion suggests that it works on the neurological system through the release of endogenous opioids.  It has been argued that the stress response is an important factor in pain conditions and that pain modulation is vital in order to reduce natural killer cell activity in immune-suppressing diseases, such as cancer. Whilst there is still a paucity of data for pain as a specific outcome measure in reflexology research, some have assessed the effects on anxiety which is an important factor related to the stress response.

Benefits of Massage

Massage (or muscular therapy) gets to the root of the pain by relaxing tense muscles and increasing flexibility. Massage also encourages blood flow to the affected muscles, which can bring increase  oxygen and nutrients,. All of this activity reduces swelling and stiffness and increases flexibility to help eliminate pain. Muscular therapy also releases endorphins and boosts your levels of serotonin and dopamine, all hormones your body produces to help you feel good, promote healing and pain management, and calm your nerves.

Benefits of Reiki

Because many aches & pains are affected to your mental attitude and emotional state Reiki is a wonderful therapy for pain management.

During a Reiki session, muscles are relaxed, and energy flow is unblocked. This helps reduce physical tension and pain. Anxiety and stress also are reduced, helping to unblock and release emotional pain. Although you may not be completely pain-free, you feel relaxed, refreshed, and better able to cope with your condition.

“A [recent] issue of the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine reviewed 66 clinical trials on biofield therapies,” says Julie Kusiak, MA, a Reiki practitioner in the integrative medicine department at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich. The authors of the review concluded that there was strong evidence that biofield therapies help reduce the intensity of pain in general and moderate evidence that these therapies help reduce the intensity of pain for people who are hospitalized or who have cancer, Kusiak says.
