Working With Migraines with Hypnotherapy   

Working With Migraines with Hypnosis

Obviously if migraines are an issue, the first thing to do is to consult a medical doctor. There are a lot of medications for migraine, and it is very important to rule out serious organic causes.

How can hypnotherapy help with migraines? There can sometimes be a deep rooted psychological cause for migraines. Please note that the psychological causes are usually at the unconscious level. There could be an unconscious motivation to generate the migraines, and there would be no way of being consciously aware of this. The migraine appears to start spontaneously.

Typical deep rooted unconscious motivations could be "self punishment", "identification with someone significant", "an internal conflict", "a significant past traumatic event or events", "an imprint by someone significant", "metaphorical communication from the unconscious", "secondary gain". 

The therapy would be aimed at uncovering the root cause event, the first significant event that caused the subconscious mind to start generating migraines. This root cause event is not necessarily the first time there was a migraine, but the first significant event in relation to it. 

Once the first event, and subsequent significant emotional events related to migraines have been found, we then want a resolution at the subconscious level of this event and subsequent related events. This means that the event(s) can be rationalised consciously and unconsciously, and releasing the emotional charge from the event(s). If there was a positive intention or positive intentions at the unconscious level, the migraine could be a misguided attempt to achieve the positive intention(s). Obviously, it may be a good idea to persuade the unconscious mind to use a more comfortable strategy to achieve the positive intention(s)!

Once you have learned self hypnosis, you can then put yourself into trance, and give yourself powerful suggestions for comfort at the times of old migraine triggers.
