When working with pain management Melissa requires a referral from a physician, believing that pain is a signal or a warning of a problem, and that to remove the pain without addressing the cause is dangerous and unethical. Our ability to interfere or block pain signals with our mind is widely documented and highly successful. Hypnosis for pain control has no side effects and takes away the feeling of hopelessness and dependence that sufferers of chronic pain normally experience. It is safe, effective and non-addictive.
Melissa believes in teaching stress management in every session, no matter what the goal. The role that stress plays in compulsive behaviors such as overeating and chain smoking and the myriad of illnesses attributed to or exacerbated by stress is astounding.
