Pain control based on EMDR


Pain Control is designed to help you reduce pain and suffering, naturally. Pain is an experience and Pain Control works by changing the way you experience your pain. This tape incorporates bilateral stimulation with two guided visualizations designed to evoke soothing thoughts, feelings and images. The bilateral stimulation will enhance the feelings generated by the healing imagery, whether you are 'visual' or not, and also cause relaxation.. Pain Control can supplement whatever treatment you are having, but it is not intended as a substitute for proper multi-disciplinary care.

These unique self-help tapes incorporate the latest findings regarding the treatment of anxiety and pain. In addition to positive suggestions and relaxation, the tapes teach the listener how to be more in touch with their feelings, how to access their own inner emotional resources and how to allow transformation of negative emotional states.

The tapes are based on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) and incorporate bilateral stimulation and dual focus of attention. Bilateral stimulation and dual focus of attention have been shown to facilitate rapid reduction of negative affective states. On the tapes, the unique combination of soothing words and music and bilateral stimulation is designed to produce relaxation almost in spite of any resistance. Users also not only feel relaxed after listening to the tape, but with repetitive listening, they learn how to release emotional blockages to relaxation and to experience less anxiety and greater emotional integration.

The tapes can be used as a 'stand-alone' product or as an invaluable aid to treatment. When used in conjunction with treatment, the tapes serve to both facilitate and reinforce the therapeutic process, sometimes in quite dramatic and unforseen ways. Many therapists also use them on themselves

These tapes have helped thousands of people, with all kinds of conditions, all over the world.
