Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Tension Headaches in Milton Keynes

Those who have never suffered from tension headaches may find it difficult to appreciate how awful they really are. Learning how to avoid or deal with stress may help immensely in the treatment of tension headaches.

There are four types of headache:

  • Vascular.
  • Muscle contraction (tension)
  • Traction
  • Inflammatory

Tension Headaches may be caused by stress

While over-the-counter pain relievers are helpful in reducing the pain of tension headaches, they must be taken with caution because they could actually make your tension headaches worse if they are not taken correctly. The overuse or misuse of pain relievers – exceeding the suggested dosage on the label or not following your doctor’s advice – can cause you to “rebound” into more tension headaches.

Visualisation techniques may help you relieve your tension headaches

Cognitive Hypnotherapy may help by using visualisation techniques to divert you from headache pain into a place of peace and comfort. The hypnotherapist may also try to simply relax you, so that your muscles are less tense and you physically experience relief from stress and tension headaches. The suggestions are often similar to the concept of affirmations, where positive statements replace negative ones. Your hypnotherapist may use a statement such as, “My tension headaches do not control me – I can relax myself and push the pain away.” Hypnosis uses mind power to direct and control physical pain.
