Chronic Daily Headache and Temporomandibular Disorder (TMJ) are two very common problems presenting in the primary care setting. Over the past three decades, several emerging areas of investigation have provided evidence on the important impact that stress, mood, and psychophysiological states can have on the development, course and outcome of medical and dental conditions such as headache and temporomandibular disorders.
New discoveries of pain mechanisms such as brain plasticity, pain modulation, neurogenic inflammation and mind-body interactions are challenging our traditional approaches to the treatment of these chronic conditions. Initially from empirical observation and currently from molecular and physiologic evidence, we are rapidly discovering the neurobiological mechanisms that constitute the channels of interaction between mind and body. Hypnosis provides the tools and the language to help unlock the secrets of inherent internal self-healing resources that are so crucial for successful rehabilitation In this full-day workshop, participants will discover an effective model for conceptualizing these disorders.in a manner that leads to using specific, powerful hypnotic techniques for successful treatment.
