I tried hypnotherapy, however I only lasted one session. I did not
feel comfortable with my therapist or his approach, so I never went back. I have heard great things about
it though. It just wasn't for me (at least with this therapist).
I have learned a lot of self relaxation/self hypnosis techniques though, as both a competitive athlete and a chronic pain patient. It hasn't helped me so much with my pain, although worked great for "getting me in the zone" for my competitions. There are a lot of guided imagery CD's out there. Those might help you as well. I have several of them, although not ones for pain. I keep meaning to look into it, but haven't gotten a chance. I wish you the best of luck!
