Many people ask me as to whether I assist people with Pain Management?
The answer is Yes! But not always in the ways that are expected. Many people expect pain management to be for chronic pain like Fibromyalgia, ME or Arthritis. Although I have assisted many people in these areas, I tend to find the most rewarding is helping people with it when they don’t actually realise they need it.
For example, Needle Phobias. Many people believe they are scared of the impending doom that comes with needles (although there is non). Instead their thought process is triggering off to that one injection that would have hurt when younger. Breaking it into it lowest level, rather than a phobia it’s a traumatic event that the body id trying it’s best to not re-create.
Recently I had an 8yo child referred to me for a needle phobia. He has a B12 deficiency, which in turn means that he has to have weekly injections inter muscularly which in turn can be painful.
When I met him, it was taking up to 60 minutes for this injection to be administered with hysterical screaming as a lead up. With some work as to how he can manage the pain for himself, placing him in control, he was able to turn around the 60 minutes. First week he was much more in control and second week his injection took only 3 minutes with no pain…
Breaking this down, how can something so painful be pain free? Our brains as many have been told so much are powerful tools. If you believe something is going to hurt… It will (most of the time). But if you can put someone into a comfortable environment, where they can be in control and believe that they can choose whether or not the next injection will hurt or not. You will find miraculous outcomes.
So if you are someone who has a fear of needles and wishes to get past it. Contact me HERE to start your journey on to a more manageable lifestyle. Especially if requiring injections for pregnancy etc.
