Hypnosis is a technique which utilizes suggestion to help control what are often the most difficult aspects of coping with pain. Hypnosis carries strong evidence in the setting of acute and chronic pain and can be combined with other pain management techniques. Hypnosis utilizes a combination of individualized techniques over a series of treatments that can often be transitioned to self-management practices.
