Description

At a time when Canada is struggling with a doctor-prescribed opioid crisis, this book offers a safe alternative for the millions of people who live with chronic pain: self-hypnosis, an ancient technique used today to soothe pain, both acute and long-lasting, with impressive results. This solution comes at a critical time: The typical prescription for pain - opioids - doesn't work for everyone, and comes with significant and even deadly side effects. The same goes for other medications. Dr. Ennis, a psychiatrist and world-class expert on chronic pain, reviews the disappointing evidence on pain-relief medications to build his case that self-hypnosis is a credible alternative therapy that can significantly reduce pain. He tells the fascinating medical history of hypnosis and shows readers, step by step, how to hypnotize themselves to relieve pain. This book includes the author's own compelling story of his struggle with severe chronic pain and his victory over it to live a life full of joy and fulfillment.

"For anyone who suffers from chronic pain, knows someone in chronic pain, or treats someone with chronic pain, this book will open a whole new way of thinking about dealing with this serious and complex affliction." - Philip Chan MD, Director, Chronic Pain Clinic, Department of Anesthesia/Chronic Pain Clinic

"If you are suffering chronic pain and are frustrated at the lack of results from various treatments, or if you are tired of relying on pain killers, this book could be the life changer you been looking for." - Paul D. Carr, patient

"A challenging and ultimately optimistic game plan for dealing with chronic pain; important reading for sufferers." Kirkus Reviews
