Medical Hypnotherapy STOPPED my husband's back pain!

I wish my husband had considered medical hypnotherapy 14 years ago when his back pain started and he was functional. He is now on the downhill deconditioned slide but seeing incredible results with medical hypnosis. I was not aware of this therapy until several months ago. It is approved by the AMA and has an EXTREMELY high success rate for pain patients - dramatically improving quality of life and decreasing hopelessness. I googled "medical hypnosis" and some of the towns close to me and called several people until I called one that I "clicked" with - it's worth a try and often far less expensive than traditional therapists with far greater results. We have found that a two hour medical hypnosis session is equivalent to 10 regular therapy appointments in effectiveness and my husband has the ability to control his pain just by self-hypnosis. You don't need any special skills to accomplish this and you don't need to be afraid that anyone will brainwash you or make you dance the funky chicken like stage hyponotists. THIS WORKS!!! You need to know that my husband is a nurse and a tremendous skeptic with "alternative" treatments, but the results convinced him. He can't wait to see his hypnotherapist now because he feels so good afterward - he has been able to deal with some long-term painful issues as well - something he has never faced before. Please don't automatically discount this therapy - look at what they say on WebMD first!
