THINK AWAY PAIN

-

If you’re a chronic pain sufferer, using hypnosis to relieve pain can seem too good to be true, but Dr. Jeffrey Ennis is both a chronic pain sufferer and the director of a pain management clinic, and now the author of Hypnothera­py for Pain Control ($25). In his new book, he walks you through putting yourself into a trance, then using pain-reducing exercises like this one: Imagine your pain as a number between one and 10, then morph that number to reduce it by one, feeling the pain reduce as well. Slowly work your way down, reducing your pain a little each time.
