It seems to me that hypnosis can be used in two ways if Not more in relation to tms healing. One would include trying to overcome conditioning and accessrepressed emotions The other would be for coping with pain. I believe The first deals with the causes and the second with symptoms. Therefore I can understand why Dr Sarno would not encourage the second. However I was thinking that maybe the second would reduce fear of pain and help outcome independence, things I struggle with a lot so maybe trying this would be a good idea what does anyone think please?
