Hi TMJ, I have gone to a hypnotist on many occassions. It was not for CP so let me make that clear. One thing I found with this lady after every session with her I have never been so relaxed in all of my life. I did not think that was possible for me.
I went to her for relaxation many times. I had a surgery pending and was quite worked up about
it because of some bad problems from a previous surgery. I was scared to death, to the point of considering canceling the surgery strictly out of fear. She met with me the day before the surgery, not sure I would have done had she not been in the picture.
I did my homework and found her. She is a wonderful lady with many, many years of experience. Some of the bigger companies her in town hired her to help de-stress their employees. I have TMJ and know that pain. Now, I am wondering how well it mayy work for you in getting some of those jaw & neck muscles to relax. What about
accupuncture its used for pain?
