Treating Pain with Subliminal Therapy

Leave a comment


Albert Schweitzer once called pain “a more terrible lord of mankind than even death itself.”
Even so, pain is essential to life; we simply could not live without it. We would behave in self-destructive ways without being aware that we were doing so. Yet, pain can also be dysfunctional, inhibiting awareness of life’s values and meaning.

Pain is the mind’s way of getting attention. It is a protective mechanism, regardless of the cause of the pain. Moreover, the purpose is rarely recognized consciously. In addition, once established as a pattern, the pain response can persist long after the original purpose ceases to have meaning. In this situation, the pain is maintained unconsciously for reasons that were real and valid in the past —when the pain began—but are no longer real or valid in current life. When the person recognizes that the pain no longer has valid purpose, doing so both consciously and subconsciously, relief becomes possible. Subliminal Therapy works to identify its subconscious, psychological cause, thereby to resolve it.


Stop Chronic Pain In Its Tracks

Turns out a lot of chronic pain is caused by psychological forces – emotion, stress and imagination as examples – rather than by physical stimulation of nerves.  When pain originates or is maintained by such forces, it is not often consciously recognized that it is happening in this way; the pain is perceived by the person as being caused physically.

Of course, there can be situations in which an on-going, physical stimulus causes pain; however, most commonly the actual cause of pain is from muscle spasms that are reacting to “something” outside of conscious control, causing the pain to continue.  That something could be a physical stimulus via nerves, or it could be a stimulus that originates in the mind of the sufferer – perhaps as a way to satisfy an unconscious need such as getting attention, or maybe just because the person learned to expect it to be this way.

Subliminal Therapy is a uniquely effective way to determine if the pain has psychological roots, and in the event the pain has such roots, Subliminal Therapy is also a uniquely effective way to resolve them.  When the cause has been resolved, pain ceases to exist.


What is Subliminal Therapy Used to Treat?

No Pain

Subliminal Therapy is a highly efficient, practical psychotherapeutic technique that utilizes the patient’s subconscious abilities to identify the cause of the symptoms, and then guides those abilities to resolve the influences responsible for the problem; resolve the cause and the pain can then be relieved.

We will continue to use pain as an example of the disorders Subliminal Therapy can rapidly, thoroughly treat: Pain is about perception, and perception can be modified. Chronic pain always has a subconscious purpose in addition to a conscious experience. With the use of Subliminal Therapy, a significant number of our patients have succeeded in relieving severe, chronic pain that no other treatment, including medication, has been able to effectively treat.

“Pain is the mind’s way of getting attention. It is a protective mechanism, and regardless of the cause of the pain, the purpose is rarely recognized consciously. In addition, once established as a pattern, the pain response can persist long after the original purpose ceases to have meaning. When both the conscious and the subconscious domains recognize that the pain no longer has a valid purpose, direct hypnotic suggestions can take root and the sufferer can experience relief.”  (Yager, E.K.

But, pain is not the only thing Subliminal Therapy can treat. Subliminal Therapy is effective in treating the following:

Subliminal Therapy is psychodynamic-based & involves guiding the patient to employ his or her own mental abilities to identify the actual cause of the problem being addressed, thereby resolving it.  These mental abilities are universal to everyone, but commonly unrecognized & underutilized.  Because the therapy addresses the cause of the problem, not the symptoms of the problem, the therapy is both efficient and effective, and faster than traditional therapy. Most patients find relief in three to six sessions. Dr. Edwin Yager has been formally researching the effectiveness of Subliminal Therapy since 2008. Since data collection began, an average 83% of patients reported improvement from their problems within three to six treatments. More results can be found here: http://stii.us/results.html

Dr. Yager has conducted formal training in the technique under the auspices of the UCSD School of Medicine, the American Society of Hypnosis, the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis and the San Diego Psychological Association.
